    I found a Trace Elliot RAH400SMX for $380.00. Looks like a pretty good amp to me.

    Is it a good buy or not?

    I've had an all tube Trace head before, and liked the tone.

    Thanks for your help.

    Well you may not get the all tube Trace tone by any means from the RAH400SMX, its still a good amp.

    The amp will probably get you that "classic" Trace (SS) tone, that I like as well.

    The price is about right, not a great deal, or anything but pretty fairly priced. Maybe $50 higher than what I'd pay for it, condiotion and someother things affect it too.

    Why not read some Harmony Central or Bass Gear reviews while you're at it.

    I definately like the SS Trace tone, especially with the Mid-Shape switch engaged. But, I think I am going to pass on this one, especially since the input jack is a little messed up as well.

    Thanks for you input.
