    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!

    I just picked up one as well. Still learning to tweak it. I need to hop back over to basstasters and see how they set it for testing.
    Definitely warmer than the old Yamaha PB-1.
    I'm definitely liking the fact that the DI is on front. The thing is set up nearly identical to the Alembic F1-X, F-1X ??
