    Trace Elliot V-Type tube bass preamp for sale/trade (The only possible trades I would consider are for a USA made Gallien Krueger MB500 bass head or an Arkham Bullet bass preamp). Made in England during the golden era of Trace Elliot. This single rack space bass preamp is based on the 60's Fender Showman tone stack. Some call it "the poor man's Alembic F-1X". I've owned both and it compares very favorably to it and is actually better in some ways *, IMHO. Uses a pair of 12AX7 tubes. This low mileage bass preamp is in excellent physical condition, works as it should and sounds great.


    * The ability to dial some distortion into the tone with its Gain/Master setup and a more versatile midrange control are the primary differentiators compared to the very highly regarded Alembic F-1X bass preamp.
