Trace Elliot AH300-7 Amp


Trace Elliot 4x10 Cab 400W 8Ω


Both the Amp and Cab have been re-tolexed and the closest way to describe the finish would be to say that it looks as though a large blue snake swallowed a Trace Eliot rig. Needless to say, it looks awesome!!... Providing you like to ROCK!!!

The AH300-7 is a top quality, English made amp with some very nice features such as; 

· 7 band graphic eq preamp

· Built in adjustable Compressor

· Pre-shape switch

· Passive/Active inputs

· Effects send/return

· Balanced D.I.

Another cool little feature is the gain led meter that lights up to show when you are running the gain too high, too low or just right... I thought that was pretty nifty... All Goldilocks and what-not!!

The graphic eq can dial in some amazing tone and can also be bypassed should you choose to keep it simple and not take advantage of all that lovely Trace Eliot rich eq mastering...

On the back it's pretty straightforward, you got the mains input, the on/off switch and two speaker outputs that operate with standard ¼ inch “jack" instrument cable. 
Minimum load is 4ohms.

The Cab is a 4x10 400W @ 8Ω Trace Elliot behemoth that weighs in at roughly the same weight as a classic 1960's mini cooper. If you are blessed with the strength of ten men (as I am) this is a one-man lift however, if you are an average puny mortal, this cab is certainly not something I can recommend hauling around on a regular basis... unless, of course, you have a very attractive chiropractor whom you would like to visit more often...b

Cab has recessed handles on‘t' side and rubber feet on‘t' base. Dimensions of cab (including feet) are;

Height = 71 cm

Width = 62 cm

Depth = 43 cm

Everything is working as it should and all sounds fantastic!! The stack had been sat around a while and there were some initial crackles when I first plugged it  & played through.  I have since; opened the  head unit (very carefully) cleaned the connections and cleared fine dust with light air CPU airspray. Also opened rear connection input panel at rear of cabinet, cleared dust and cleaned contacts. Another play through, and now the Blue Snakeskin Bass Rig Behemoth Battle Stack is now primed and ready to Attack, noise free...  👍  .... until you start playing through it... :laugh1: 

There's a small piece of missing plastic from one of the port covers at the front of the cab (pictured) Also, a covering cap is missing from the gain switch on the amp (pictured)

The front panel of the amp lights up, which is pretty “rock ‘n' roll" and also features a carry handle so looks like a fancy blue reptile skin briefcase when being held... amp weighs in at 12.4kg. So most puny humans should be able to lift the amp at least...

Dimensions of Amp (with feet) are:

Height = 15 cm

Width= 50 cm

Depth = 43 cm

I imagine if you want this rig couriered you'd be looking at roughly £2000 so it's collection only or part meet unless you got a spare £2k you wanna throw at it...

Any questions, please feel free to ask.

Send me a message if you want me to drive the rig your way (for fuel cost)   Or come visit me, you can have a trial and play 👍 I am more than happy to let you loose on a few different bass guitars so that you can get a real feel for what the trace stack is capable of... :o

All the best ^_^





















Yum, yum, yum... B|

Very reminiscence of the padded Kustom gear from the ‘70’s. 😎

Not only does it add ‘strut' it also improves the sound tenfold and completely distracts the audience from my inability to play Bass!! :i-m_so_happy:

I'm sure I'm not alone in lusting after, what must currently be, the best looking amp for sale on this forum. Monster tones too!!

I'm hoping that my own AH300 12 will be winging it's way back to me in the not too distant future so I leave the door open for another fortunate TE owner to be to snap this up. 

Remember, the heads themselves are a very manageable 12kg, an easy one hand lift.

      Here's what Ampeg say about this cab:
      400 Watts RMS 4 Ohms Freq response 50Hz - 18kHz (H x W x D) 25.75” x 22.75” x 17.5” Ampeg B410H Series 4x10 Bass Cabinets are quality two-way speaker cabinets suitable for all venue sizes. The cabinets feature heavy duty recessed handles, removable casters, and are built of void free baltic birch plywood. The jackplate features two 1/4” jacks wired in parallel, allowing easy daisy chaining from one speaker to another. Each of the jacks may be used as an input or a through connection. The three position HF Horn switch allows for:
      Full high frequency output (0 setting) High frequencies reduced by 6dB (-6 setting) Horn shutoff (off setting)  
      I'm selling as I have upgraded to a different cab with higher Wattage to accommodate my head. The cab has a few surface scratches (see images), but please feel free to test it out before purchasing. 
      The cab has 4 swivel casters for ease of transport, and has two fold-away handles for 1-2 people to carry.

      Collection from SW16.

      Great combination, really rich and LOUD! Absolutely love this amp, only gigged a few times, always well looked after. Only selling to make space!
      The cab is super light at 30kg
      Pickup from Surrey preffered but can negotiate delivery. £750 for both or can sell separately. Make me an offer or open to hearing your trades.
