I'm starting this thread based off of the basstasters.com thread where a few others and I noticed how great the Trace Elliot V-type preamp sounded. So my questions are.... 1) Does anybody one one? If so, what kind of sounds can you dial in? Or do you just leave it flat? 2) Have you had any build problems with it, or is it built like a rock? 3) Where did you get it and for how much? 4) How does it sound compared to the AH-500? There's a bass player whose sound I really like that uses an AH-500. I know that the AH-500 uses a GP12x pre, so essentially I'm asking how similar in sound the two preamps are. I'm most concerned with #3 because I've looked all over the place but have yet to find one. It's sad that these are discontinued (or so I've heard). Damn that Basstasters for wetting my whistle.
