: I used to use one of these , in fact I used it for quite a few years . Although the overall sound is very good at low volumes and the amp is PACKED with "features" I found that at higher volumes it suffered from speaker "flap" . The reason for this is that the speaker enclosure is too small to handle the amount of air that the speaker displaces at high volume -- Trace-Elliott themselves told me this , they made the enclosure that small to make the amp portable but they do admit it can`t handle high volumes ! What it is useful for is as a very flexible personal monitor / D.I box in a band situation where a P.A is being used that you can slave your amp through . I still own my Trace and , although I never use it , I will never sell it as it is useful as a spare backup amp . At the moment I use a modified Acoustic Image Contra with powered extension speaker . Another thing I found with the Trace was that even when making use of the notch filter it fed back far easier than the A.I , also it has nowhere near the warmth of tone of the A.I .Hope this has been of some help - Andy .
