    I've played both heads - neither grabbed me, but if I had to choose I'd take the Trace.

    However, that's too high for that Trace head. $251 pounds is what... $400??

    too much.

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    Two different tone stacks (red apple or green apple, which is better?). Did you like the tone of the TE when you played it?

    Wow, a Carvin Pro Bass head...from 1993???

    I've never been a fan of the Pro Bass. Get the Trace Elliot...

    I did like it, it allowed some decent shaping options and some serious oompf, It shook the entire drum section running through a peavey tvx 410(which i may also buy, but the price is high on that). But I'd like to hear if there are any issues with it I don't yet know about.

    I had a PB500, and it was OK. Played it through a 4x12, and a custom 1x15, and I gotta say that the tone(tried to EQ it) I got was like that of an ok practice amp(like my Ampeg BA115)........only louder.
