I have found a Trace Elliot V-Type 600w head for around $550, and I'm wondering if this is a good deal, from what I've heard it sounds great and might be chomping at the bit to get it, pending your input.
Yes it is, its very good i was bidding on one of those heads the 300 watt ersions. There not all ube just so you know only the preamp. Ive heard there fussy with cabs though, like to get a really good sound needs the right cab. But otherwise yes go for it.
What kind of cab(s) you reckon, a 1x15 and a 4x10?
I would hit it with something traditional, a 4x10 would probably do the job nicely. Try it out with some stuff and see what it goes with.
probably bit high ive seen trace elliot stuff sell alot cheaper then that would recomend looking around for a day or two real hard
go for it dude. i just got my 300 watt rah trace head and its godly. i paid about the same price as you, so id say do it. mine is very versatile and can match whatever mood im in. w\hat year is it?
