Anyone tried the Trace Elliot TAB100-15 (especially Rockabilly players)?
I had one for about a year and a half. It sounded great on stage. I was using an Underwood blended with the Crown mic (from the Fishman Blender setup). The problem was that the hi-fi acoustic sound didn't make it off the stage. Out front there was plenty of volume and warmth (for jazz), but it sounded very, very electric.
I've used the TAB 100-15 a few times in a rockabilly band. It's much too quiet, lacks bass and clips easily. The tone is very transparent. I think it is probably more suited to jazz styles but I have no experience of that sort of music. The amp has two channels so I guess you could also put your slap pickup into it. However there is only one xlr output to p.a.
It could not be used for rockabilly without plugging into a the main PA. Even if you do this the on-stage sound was thin and lacked power. My bass sounded horrible...
I went back to my old Peavey Mk V111 and 4x10 cab and my sound was much better.
The plus points - it's very small and light. Quite well made, will stand up to being thrown into the back of a van etc.
Hope this helps.
