1993 Peavey Foundation Bass (made in USA) - Serial Number 06113068 - Original Super Ferrite Pickups - £100
Collection from Guildford (or I am happy to hand-deliver within reasonable distance).
Back in 1993, I bought this Peavey Foundation while at University. After a few years practicing with mates in a rehearsal room in Glasgow, we eventually played a few gigs around town. When we finished Uni, we went our separate ways and the bass was packed away in a soft case. It has moved with me each time I moved house, ending up with me in Guildford, but has been in it's case and hasn't been played since about 1997. As I get ready to move house again in the next few months, it's probably time it found a suitable owner that would appreciate it.
Let me know if you are interested in buying. Would be nice to pass it on to someone that would actually use it!
Trace Elliot 1210H SMX Combo for sale. This is a 1990s model that has the SMX 12-band preamp with valve blend and dual-band compressor. Power amp is the 250-280W Mosfet version.
Cab is 4 x 10" with horn and it has a rear slot port which makes the cabinet a little more compact. It is quite heavy though - 49kg I think.
Has been serviced and the preamp valve replaced a few years back. All the knobs and sliders are present and condition is very good. It has been hardly used since I got it in around 2003, just stored in a flightcase in my companies warehouse. It sounds huge and punchy, but I'm retiring and downsizing soon so don't want to bring it home and try and get it to my practice space upstairs!
It's too heavy to ship, but I can meet up or deliver for petrol money within a reasonable radius of Cambridge when we are allowed out again.
The pics aren't great, I can take more if required when I next go to the warehouse.
(Note: the flightcase isn't included - I don't own it. If the buyer regularly uses a van it might makes sense and I could see what it would go for (not much probably, may be foc), but the case makes it extremely bulky and heavy so I really wouldn't go there for normal car users. - see later post re. flightcase, I can include it if wanted for a little extra money)
REDUCED - now £275.00

I'm putting my amazing AH350SMX head up for sale. I bought it from @Sharkfinger 6/7 years ago and it was my main gigging amp for a few years. I ended up downsizing and it's been my spare since then, which is a real shame. It's so good that it really should be played and enjoyed.
It's 350W at 4Ohms but is unbelievably loud. I did loads of gigs with it and never really pushed it.
Manufactured in 1995, it has the SMX preamp with 12-band graphic EQ and dual-band compressor. There's also a valve preamp which you can blend to valve / solid state. Plus the really cool blue UV uplight on the front!
I've just had it serviced by Steve Parry, including replacing the valve, so it’s working perfectly.
It is heavy at around 26kg. If you want to come and try it you’d be very welcome – I can set it up in the garage so we can keep our distance. I can courier but I’d need to get a price, or a buyer can arrange their own. Or I might even deliver up to around 50 miles, just to get out of the house!
I’m also selling the cab in these photos – it’s a 1015H – so if you really want to weaponise your rig, you could buy both!
No trades thanks. And feel free to fire any questions over, I’m not at all technical but I’ll do my best to answer.
I need help on choosing my next bass amp. I have previously posted about my Trace Elliot SMX GP12 having problems on this forum, well after three fixes and back and fourth to an amp tech. The amp gave out again today at band practise. So now as much as I love the amp and the sound it gives me, i think it's time to let go and move on. Only problem is I'm not sure which amp or manufacture to go with and where its not going to be burning a hole (too much) in my pocket.
I need an amp that gives me a punchy bass and treble sound that I got from the Trace Elliot Pre Shape, my sound is a mix between Mark King and Marcus Miller. Bass with enough punch and treble so you can hear every string being hit.
Few things i will miss from the Trace is the Graphic EQ, built in compression and the EQ balance mix. The EQ balance mix is such a great tool for when cutting through certain frequencies more when you are playing venues with not so great acoustics. So if theres any amps out there that people have had experience with which would give me the same qualities as my Trace Elliott than any suggestions would be most appreciated.
