    Trace Elliot GAS contracted

    I recently picked up a ‘spares or repair’ AH250 SMX (non-fan). My main amp is the same but I also have a later 280 version which does have the fan. I do prefer the non-fan models purely because I’ve become used to the almost silent running. I think I’ll be getting the spare fixed up and then move the 280 on.

    If You Had £3000 For a Bass ....

    I think I could be tempted to go for a Status Graphite, either a Series II Classic or the Chris Wolstenholme model 😍 . I'm loving the early 90's SII that I recently bought and would be very interested to compare it against these newer models, different preamps etc.
  3. Totally agree with this. I personally can't get on with Ashdown amps, but that's down to me, my ears and my expectations. There are however plenty of people who love them to bits that probably wouldn't like the amps that I do favour.

    Bass project

    I'd start on a Precision copy to 'practice' on. That way you can add an additional pick up at the rear (P/J) or change the original split coil for whatever you fancied (a soapbar, MM etc). If it all goes a bit Pete Tong at the neck pickup, you can at least hide all the evidence under the scratchplate!

    I certainly do and thank you, yes it is still awesome 😁

    My old bass I believe. The finish is called Translucent Gold and is stunning, very difficult to capture photographs to do it justice. This really is a great bass! GLWTS

    Peavey TNT 130 vs Ashdown electric Blue 180

    I had one with a Sheffield speaker too. All very decent as I recall.

    Get your STATUS-GRAPHITE basses out!

    My newly acquired 1991 S2 (or S2 'Matrix' as I think it would have been termed at the time being headed). This is a bit of a timewarp bass - it really is in mint condition. It recently came into this country from the Netherlands (where the original owner resided). Maybe a member on here? I did initially think that I had a problem with a noisy preamp/buzzing at higher volumes. Turns out that the equation of this bass + my old Trace SMX's + the electrical interference in my man cave = buzzing at high volume. Tried it elsewhere in the house, at different times of the day and through a couple of more 'modern' amps and it's as quiet as a mouse. I'm really enjoying it and as @MB1 warned me, I may end up wanting more than one!

    2X18 feedback

    Bought an amp off Will and he very kindly offered to drop it off to me to save arranging a courier. Had a good natter about all things bass and life in general. Many thanks again Will, much appreciated. All the best

    Good man 👍

    Peavey TNT 130 vs Ashdown electric Blue 180

    Definitely Peavey for me. Well built and easily achievable good, usable tones.
  12. Tried switching off and it doesn’t seem to make too much difference at ours. The power line ethernet on the other hand really does make a difference. I have a similar issue to the OP at the moment but I’ve given up trying to get to the bottom of it! In my house, certain basses through certain amps = buzz.

    Bit of a hankering

    We’re all guilty of it. Heart over head but sometimes it just has to be done.

    Bit of a hankering

    That pretty much summed up my experience of them 🤣

    Anyone got any history on Encores?

    Nice one 👍
