Well my ol' Acoustic was nearing the end of its days as the speakers were beginning to be strained whilst jamming with a group of friends and couldn't handle the low B. I looked over the net for a suitable replacement that wouldn't break the bank as uni books and other expenses need to be looked after......I then found this:





It's a Trace Elliot Commando 15, made in the UK during the 90's. Rated by Trace at 150/300, I think it falls around a 250W peak but having said that the sound from the amp is absolutely huge. It does have that 'transparency' that Trace is known for, the 15inch speaker handles the low B incredibly well. This amp in particular has been put through its paces in a live setting, the previous owner playing all genres from hiphop, ska, rock and funk. I find it particularly easy to find a specific tone for most genres though.

The controls are a bit hard to read from the second picture but they read from left to right, PASSIVE INPUT ACTIVE INPUT EFFECTS LOOP: SEND + RETURN BASS DEEP SWITCH MID MID SHIFT TREBLE BRIGHT SWITCH VOLUME

The only issues I have with it would have to be the lack of a decently sized EQ, I will be buying a eq pedal that would help me dial in the 'perfect' tone I'm looking for.
