Just got my "new" Trace V-type from TB-er David Wilson. It's in great shape, and I LOVE the tone! Finally, my rig (Stewart+Epifani 212) is complete now that I've swapped my SWR Grand Prix for the Trace... I'll post a review later once I've had a chance to play with it some more, and try it with my G&L L-1000 ("out for delivery"). Initial impressions: amazingly flexible for a passive tone stack! Excellent clarity down to fuzzy overdriven mud. I can dial in fantastic fretless tones, slap, or old-school thump. I also like that the DI is on the *front* of the amp, since I've got a 2-space rack (hard to reach the rear inputs.) What a great unit!
