I’ve always been a big Trace Elliot fan and have had several amp over the years. This one has a built-in AH-200 output stage (power amp).
A 2U rack mount box, it’s easy to carry around and sits nicely on top of any bass cab. In fact, the Warwick 211 Pro I used it with is also available separately. This was a particularly good combination. I've included some pictures featuring both the Trace Elliot and the Warwick cab, just to give some idea of proportion.
The GP12-SMX will deliver that classic eighties bass sound and the famous Trave Elliot selectable filter in conjunction with the dual band compressor, is perfect for slap.

I kind of acquired this a few years ago and wasn’t at all sure about it. It looks like it’s seen better times but is quite functional. In fact I used it on the back of a Marshall JCM900 Dual Reverb 4502 combo (which I’m also selling at the moment) and it sounded so good that I left it plugged in like that!
The cab is rated at 200 Watts RMS and has an impedance of 16Ω. The input panel on the rear has two 6.3 mm mono jack sockets which are wired in parallel allowing to to daisy chain but PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!!! Make sure that the output impedance of your amp is set to match the impedance of the load (speaker cabs) that you're driving. Hope that makes sense but if it doesn't just ask me. 🙂
The condition is a little scruffy but it all works.

I originally bought this to make recording bass easier but was really quite keen on the overdrive function. It’s so hard to get a proper overdrive on a bass rig. I didn’t want distortion, just some soft valve type clipping. This box gave me that and also satisfied my initial desire; to make recording bass easier.
I always re-amp bass as you never know what you want in the mix. The Sansamp VT Bass RM has a load of inputs and outputs on the back that allowed me to re-amp with ease.
Used in a recording environment, the VT Bass RM would also work perfectly in a live bass rig.
This example has been rack mounted and has sat on my desk for a couple of years so it’s in lovely condition.
Designed specifically for guitar, the tc electronic G Major Mk II can be used in many situations, even as outboard. In fact, with classic tc electronic effects, it’s absolutely ideal to be connected in the auxiliaries of a live or recording set-up.
With balanced analogue inputs and outputs, S/P DIF and MIDI, the G Major is exceedingly versatile. Tc electronic also offer an editor program for Windows and Mac.
This box sits between your tripod and your camera and allows you to use professional microphones on your rig. The Tascam DR60D Mk II takes a SD card and can record directly to that but it also passes the audio through to the 3.5mm stereo audio input on your camera.
With a stereo 3.5mm input as well as two XLR inputs, the Dr-60D Mk II can actually record four channels. There are controls to mix down to two channels to send to your camera. All four channels are recorded separately on the SD card.
With phantom power and gain controls on all channels, it’s such a handy bit of kit. Over the years, I’ve done a lot of video and since the early days, I’ve noticed how the quality of audio can easily render a really good video, absolutely useless. With a pair of really nice microphones, this box ensures that the audio component of your video will be as good as your video!
I'm a big fan of speaker simulator technology. You just can't get that consistent, solid and totally controllable sound from microphones, without investing in resources that the vast majority of us would find quite impossible.
Good enough for the likes of Iron Maiden and many more, the SPL Transducer has built itself a remarkable reputation in a very short space of time.
This box sits between your amp and your 8Ω cab. Set your amp output impedance to 8Ω and you’re good to go. Delivering a consistent signal for recording and reducing the output to your cab by 50%, the Transducer allows you to record at lower sound pressure levels and gives huge flexibility over what you're recording.
The switches and dials on the front make the Transducer hugely versatile and an array of outputs on the back is just so welcome.
