Never realized how rare the V4s and V8s were till I tried to find one. There are slightly more early V4s and V6s .
So I thought,Mmm lets see how many we could catalogue. Could record serial numbers too. Protect your assets! Trying to work out my build/ serial numbers. A headache ! Anyway here are my 2.[attachment=94112:423.jpg][attachment=94113:Revamped Trace V4.jpg]

2/3 of my old rig pictured above! Hopefully that V4 is coming back to live with me.. I love it!

Anyone wanting a near brand new 300w Ashton Stack!?

I've long been a fan of Trace Elliot stuff but that V4 is quite spectacular when its on song. It was great when I used to own the matching 1084 (8x10) but in all fairness, it works well through anything including the Crashdown 2x10 but did give it a good kicking! This one seems to work best with the re-issue TungSol 6550 output valves, they seem to have a liitle more definition than the stock Shuguang KT88 (re-branded to Ruby Tubes) although there seems to be little difference in horsepower or point of breakup between the two..

Big +1. Dirty channel 2 with the valve comp kicked in is absolutely fantastic.My only criticism would be it just loses a bit of bass when driving the 2nd channel,but thats about it,it does have a better tone than the V6 too.Would love to hear a V8 in anger! I have got a load of valves ranging from GE 6550s to vintage Gec kt88s and some Re issue Gold lions plus 2 sets of JJs( Bullet proof for giggin ).Will have to try em all seen as the biasing is a piece o piss!

My Trace Elliot stack:

V6
1048h + 1518c

Love the sound I get from this setup, I've had the V6 around 5 years but it was sat around for ages in a cupboard as the valves went about 4 years ago and I couldn't afford to get it sorted but have recently got her back up and running and I have got the best tone I have ever had!

I'm selling my Trace Elliot V6.

Anyone interested ?

I'm thinking in the area of £850 but am open to offers.
