hi everyone i just wanted some peoples thoughts on the trace elliot smx series, in particular i am thinking about maybe purchasing a 2nd hand rah-400smx. i dont want to use it at the same time as my swr, just as an alternative (e.g - if i jam ratm or dave matthews band, i can use swr, and in my band playing bonjovi, def lep, etc i can use the trace). the swr just doesnt quite seem to cut it in the style rock sound i would like. (and dont say buy an ampeg!!). i like the features of the smx pre and i have always loved the trace graphic-eq vibe. i would still use it with my warwick quad. so, yeah, what are peoples experiences with the trace??? btw, i am gettin a stingray 5 soon and i would still use my sabddi with the trace.
