TRACE ELLIOT PORN THREAD

Recommended Posts

What you got then? I'm talking old school green break-your-back stuff like this bad boy:



And this, my 1984 1110 combo. Serial no. 002. So old that it has toggle switches like a 60s car. Sounds great though:

Yes, about £500 all in.

Maybe not entirely the usual configuration bass rig, regarding the combo and extension speaker, though I do vary whether I have the combo on top or bottom depending on venue etc. I know the 15" speaker traditionally should be at the bottom but I prefer the controls at the top. Besides, as it is, the sound is pretty awesome either way.

Used in conjunction with either a GT-6B or a Quadraverb GT/Behringer rack tuner:

My old, early 80's 1110/GP7 Mk V combo, originally black vinyl, recovered by me in slightly newer old stock green carpet.... (Now sold)

:) just a couple - it's a versatile rig, though, not all slap!

Awesome!

Here's my V-Type lot. (sold the 1x15 last month, yet to build its replacement which will be almost the same size as the 4x8 cab...)

Oooh, me, me! 1998 7215 SMC 300 watt 1X15 combo (plus Hartke transporter 4X10 extension cab). Does the trick for me very nicely. Sure I'd like a more expensive rig, but this is perfectly adequate. I also find it quite pleasantly compact, and not excessively heavy, but then I'm just hard. :huh: :)

[quote name='stingrayfan' post='269365' date='Aug 25 2008, 11:22 AM']Don't know much about those V-types. How does it sound against a drummer?[/quote]

Itd stick him to the wall if i wanted it too! Trace's voicing have always made them "loud" amps, Let alone this voicing with an all tube layout.

Tastey.

Yes mate.

[/quote]Hi Steve that's lovely. Is that a 15" with a horn/tweeter?
So, that would be a 200 watt valve amp in there? Wonder what it would sound like with an extension cab.
Better pics please. :)

15 with horn indeed! and there be 200 watts worth of valves!

An extension cab is DEFINATELY necessary, no matter what guitarists/drummer/singer/synthists/girlfriends tell me.
