    With the case and the light it's 17 Inches deep, the amp only is 15 inches including the front knobs.

    Thanks !
    It's a killer amp indeed and the compression and variable solid state or Tube section makes it even more flexible. You can select one or the other or mix it, that gives you more tones.

    Analyzing this amp there are many things to like and enjoy, but perhaps my favorite thing about this preamp are the preshape and graphic eq; when you activate the pre shape thesound can go from A perfect fingerstyle tone to a perfect Slap tone ! The best part is that this can be done with a footswitch !!! Therefore this is perfect hands free change of tone and the ONLY solution from switching back and forth between fingerstyle and slap in the middle of the song without commiting agroove violation !! I wonder why more companies don't do it ? Leave it to the guys of trace Elliot , in my opinion the most innovative company in the history of bass amplification ! The slap Sound is SO GOOD that trace Elliot's are what Mark King used during level 42 golden years! If you live in the dc area come and check it out. There are a couple in eBay right now for twice as much money !
     
  9. What a
    great price for a killer amp.

    Hi
    It's not extremely heavy !!!
    Nothing out of the ordinary
    The fan sounds but not very loud and the di has a great transformer which helps in recording or sending the signal to the pa (trace always used the best components !!).
    They are great amps !!

    I have an AH300SMX... it was my first "real" amp... and I think these amps are some of the most underrated tube/solid state combos ever made.

    Tube/Solid State blend control? Yup.
    12-band graphic EQ? Yup.
    Built-in dual-band compression with high and low blend control? Yup.

    They're not too heavy and very conservatively rated as far as power goes... my amp is only supposed to be 300 watts and it's one of the louder amps I've ever owned.

    Would love to get a mint matching 4x10 cab for someday.

    Anyway, GLWTS!!!
