*Sold pending Trace Elliot GP12 SMX300 amp head £215 incl del UK
£235

Recommended Posts

Amp is in excellent condition and first class working and is very loud. Very well cared for.

IMO there’s always been a tossup between the AH250 MKV and the SMX250/300. This model wins as it has the valve blend and is lighter.

Head Specs:
280w RMS/580w peak fan cooled head (the fan is not silent but cannot be heard above anything else - I must state this because there are some funny bugxxxx about - to me it’s fine) Has active passive input selector, tube/solid state blending, pre-shape and 2 shaping options, 12 band graphic EQ with controlable level, independent Low and high compressesors, Effects level and send level with full range and high pass options, DI out built in, can power two 8 ohm cabs. Made in England around 1998 - the Trace golden era.

Welcome to trial/test here in Coseley West Mids - you won’t be disappointed.

Quite! Class D has its benefits but there is a lack of personality to them. It can’t be just me that’s noticed a small rebellion away from Class D back to Class Heft.

People don't need to travel to you to hear this...just plug your bass in, turn the volume up and play...everybody within a 300m radius will be able to hear and feel it..xD

Can't beat a Trace Elliot!!

I’ve joined it! A Hellborg 500 (50lbs), then Geoff’s TE mk iv 250 (40lbs) and a DB750 (80lbs in its case). Worth every ounce. I’d love to add Geoff’s SMX. Brilliant seller (bent over backwards to help me collect) and this 300 looks super clean

I owned this very amp for about 3 weeks, until Geoff asked to buy it back again because he missed it ;-)

Kind of regret selling it now, as it was a real cracker of an amp, and stupidly good value, but I’ve got a new plaything now (as you do) so I don’t need to get it back again.

No I don’t 

No I don’t 

PS Geoff is a top notch seller. Buy this box of heft with confidence.

Reduced to £215 and that includes delivery.

I’m retiring on NYE and will be dropping it to the lads about mid November but will dep after NYE until they are fixed up.

Sad really, only missed two NYEs in more than 50 years playing. I don’t want to pack it in but I don’t want to lose time with my grandkids like I did my kids - and my wife of course.

Would have been perfect, even better with two separate 8 cabs

Ah so you can use one 4 ohm cab in one of the 8ohn outputs?

Yes, but don't plug anything else in the other 8ohm socket because the socket is wired in parallel with the other one and you will reduce the ohms which the amp won't like.
