this is a really cool one guys. i will put up the whole story.

i have been trying to dump the duoverb for quite some time now with no avail so in desperation i responded to a trade thread for this trace elliot amp. so i emailed him and he said he had tried a duoverb and was interested but i would need to trade a cabinet too (i knew something additional had to be traded for it to be fair, and was more than willing to part with an extra cabinet). so i call him and we arranged for today for the swap. i get there, haul my stuff up the stairs and get in the appartment and start talking to him. first the amp stuff. he said he bought it when he was on tour over in europe and brought it back with him and had his tech do the swap from 220V. now i am intreagued. tour in europe? personal guitar tech? and he had also mentioned on the phone that he was going on tour somewhere but didnt mention where. so i ask him what band he was in. he said that i probably hadnt heard of them, and then he says Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. little did he know that i had been a fan of them for a few years. he further mentions that he used this amp to record the guitar tracks on his last album. we progressed talking and eventually ended up jamming for a while. so i got to meet and jam with the lead guitarist of a band that i had been a fan of for quite some time. AND i have the exact amp he used to record on their second album.

anyways, now for the specs and reviews.

it is a 50 watt- 1x12" all tube Trace Elliot Speed Twin. 5 12AX7's 2 EL34's and 2 6L6's. the poweramp section has a switch to switch back and fourth to the 6L6's and the EL34's. it has a clean channel and a overdrive channel with two different gain stages that are switchable. the first gain stage is what i will get most of the use out of, it has a classic 60's Marshall Crunch (with the EL34's) that tops well over two thirds of the marshalls i have heard to date. it has a really sweet breakup and really smooth creaminess to it. the harder gain channel has more of a modern Marshall tone, that has even more creaminess and sustain. the clean channel is by far my favorite on the amp, it just sparkles. it has the best sounding spring reverb i have ever heard on anything less than a Fender TRRI (who knows maybe even better). my favorite function on the amp is that the treble knob on the OD channel pulls out, altering the band of the EQ to more of an upper mid, which sounds amazing on the EL34's.

so thats pretty much it. now i have something to compete with the Renegade.

No one else in that pic is still in the band.

Interesting. Dallas doesn't play guitar live, he just sings, so I wasn't aware he recorded any of the guitar tracks.

If you ever get a chance, I think III, the their last album, is rather good.

This makes sense though, since I've known the other guys to use JCM800s, Mesa Boogie Stiletto Deuces and Orange Rockerverbs.

EDIT: Dallas is his born name. Maybe you misheard?

more on the actual amp guys. i pulled the tank out and it is a genuine accutronics reverb tank. played with it some more and am falling in love with the dirty tone. i also switched the amp to triode mode (as opposed to pentode).

i may get some clips up later.
