    Sliderbass Dr. Bass, The best cabinet you'll NEVER own!

    Up for grabs here is a Trace Elliot V8 in mint condition with less than 15 hours playing time. It is very clean and has lived most of its life in a road case. Everything is original, even the XLR output jack. It is fully functional with no issues. Since records are hard to come by I will not state anything about the serial number other than listing it in the photos. Also included are two cases for the amp.

    Again, there is NOTHING wrong with this head. It's just collecting dust here (well not really as its in a case but you get what I meanÂ…).

    I would prefer not to ship this however I will ship but the cost will be on YOU. I will have it packed and shipped by whatever means the new owner prefers. If you're on the east coast, we can work something out as I've been known to drive a pretty good distance to avoid shipping issues.

    I'm looking for $4800.00 plus the cost of shipping. This is the cleanest V8 I've ever seen but don;t listen to me, look at the pix.

    Holy cannoli!

    The venerable, elusive, and unbelievably scarce Trace Elliot V8! These are so rare that even the CIA doesn't know of their existence!

    The last one I saw for sale was at a price higher than this, and it was not in as good a shape as this one. Dang, this one is friggin mint!

    Free bump for a very upstanding TB'er and one of the greatest bass amps ever created by mankind.

  5. How did you like this amp paired up with your F215?

    LOL! Yeah, I grew up in Southern California where C3PO would be right at home saying "this floor is not entirely stable". But now that I'm in the Sacramento area, things are a bit less wobbly.

    Free bump for "da bomb" amp!

    Bump

    Not that this head needs any kind of endorsement, but it is really, really impressive. This one is immaculate and I'd own it if I could afford it.

    There was an earthquake in May this year here in Santa Barbara that woke me up at 7am. Immediately looked over to my basses hanging on hooks and watched as they swayed back and forth.

    Bump for an amp I'll never have.
