Trace Elliot V8

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete,

Apologies for sounding a bit like our American cousins on Talkbass, but you started a thread in 2013 saying that you owned a V8 and were thinking of selling it. 


I presume that you still own it? If so, you probably know more about the amp than most of us since the amps are very rare and not many people have actually tried one out, let alone owned one. 

In terms of potential prices, V8s are rarely on the market and they are very much a specialist piece so it is difficult to work out a market value, as was detailed in the thread in 2013. Prices can be in the region of £2000 plus when one actually does turn up. As they are a specialist item, there is no guarantee that you will get an immediate offer if you chose to sell. I bought my V6 in 2012 and I am pretty sure the price I paid (about £650) would probably be about the same price I would get if I chose to sell it, as big heavy valve amps are not as popular now with the innovations in lightweight bass design. There would still be interest in a V8 though no matter the weight. 

However, if you did decided to sell the amp in 2013 then I would just wish you good luck on finding another one. Most folk who are lucky enough to own a V8 tend to keep it.

All the best.

The last one I saw on ebay was on for about 2 months at £750 and couldn't sell.

A lot of it will come down to location as it's likely pick up only.

I was so tempted by the v8 but had a tax bill come just when I'd managed to get close to buying it.

I must have missed that. I saw a V6 for about £750 at the start of this year which I don't think sold. Had there been a V8 for sale at that price I would have promptly bought it and arranged pick up by courier myself!

On ebay Kleinanzeigen (...gumtree...) two V8 were offered. They should cost about 2300 €...
