Hello all. Here we have the amp section from my workhorse Trace combo of 25 years. I no longer have the speaker or enclosure unfortunately (Looong story!) Anyway, up until recently I'd been gigging the amp in a GP7 head unit from the same era (just swapped out the GP7 for my GP12) It's a 200W amp, by the way.
The amp recently died on me during a gig (Massive howling sounds coming from the speaker!! 🙄) The exact same happened about ten years previous. When I got it repaired back then, the repairer told me that the fault was with something called a "power dropping resistor" becoming detached from the circuit board due to heat - I think that was what he said, I could be wrong!
Anyway, this time I've chosen not to have it fixed, but rather to pass it on to somebody who fancies repairing it, or needs the spares. (I've put the GP7 unit back in the head shell and I'm selling it separately, so all that remains is these guts from the GP12) Couple of the white graphic slider caps are missing, not sure where they got to. 🤔
I've decided it's time to modernise, sell all my Trace gear and save my back 😁 - Have just bought something black and yellow! 👀
So this is free to whoever fancies it. I'm based in Liverpool but if it needs posting, all I'd ask is for the P & P to be covered (it is reasonably heavy!)
