Brand: Trace Elliot
Model: equivalent to the head ah 500-12 I believe
Size (WxHxD, number of units rack): width 615 mm, height 622 mm, 335 mm deep (I mean the whole size of the combo here
Type (transistors, MOSFET, number and type of lamps): mosfet, a lamp thermionic ECC83/12AX7 (I copy the guide to the coup because it's really not my area of knowledge)
Construction and finishing (independent or rack, steel, aluminum, paint, ventilation, coating etc.): 90% poplar plywood chipboard + 10%! Black vinyl cover for the best taste, the angles are in stainless steel. Provided with a cover Trace Elliot
Available settings (pots, equalizers, switches and dip switches, precise description of the front and rear) + connectors (jacks, Speakon, input impedance, XLR DI output, loop (s) of effects pedals Contrelle):
* For the front
Selector-Hi / Low
- Input connector jack 6.35
-Input gain + indicaterus LED signal to see if there is a clipping
Switch PRE-SHAPE => circuitry that engages the effect of increasing the low and high frequencies present in the signal-and filter mediums
VALVE-switch => enggage tube circuitry
Control + DRIVE: To determine the level of signal sent to the lamp circuit
Control + BLEND: to determine the mix between the normal signal and the tube
- EQ 12 bands graphic + switch
Compressor-switch to add or remove the cuts signal routing
Control + LOW BAND: adjusts the compression for low frequencies
Control + HIGH BAND: .................................. adjusts high frequency
MUTE-switch (which allows to agree)
-OUTPUT LEVEL Control: controls the output level
* To the rear
IEC-Connector + Fuse, the combo comes with cable 220 and 110
FRONT PANEL BRIGHTNESS-Control: Allows you to control the lighting of the front panel, and yes we see even in the dark, it's a gimmick but it is the class for the photos lol
2 jack 6.35
2 Neutrik Speakon
Then it gets tough for my little level 4 or 8 ohms.
XLR-left output, right output, Pre Eq
Great for recording or to be transplanted, it makes the happiness of Inges sounds.
DI-EARTH LIFT switch: to disconnect the mass of the DI OUT connector.
Left-jack connectors and Rignt: You can send the signal to additional units amplifiactaions
Connector-TUNER: works even if the MUTE is on
Low-Pass Connector Send, Send Full, HIGH Pass Send: allows you to connect external effects and to choose whether the frequencies affected by the effects
Switch-SERIES / PARALLEL: to set the effects loop
=> Series: The entire signal is routed to the connectors SEND
=> Parallel: one part is routed .......................................... .
Control-LOOP LEVEL: to adjust the signal level in the ball impact
Connectors RETURN-LEFT, MONO RETURN, RIGH / MONO RETURN: to retrieve the / signals from effects pedals
Connectors DIN EXTERNAL CONTROL + CFB-6
to connect the pedal with 6 functions provided with the combo: switch: Pre-Shape, Valve, Graphic, Compressor, Loop and Mute
Output level (in dBu) so I know what it is but I copy: Nominal output level (control position in the middle) 0dBu, 0.775Vrms
Power and impedance (W RMS power program or possibly crete, list the modes in power, impedance, stereo, mono, bridge): Impedance of work: 1Kohms or +
More info on the manual
Number, size, brand and type of speaker (or ferrite magnets neodymium, aluminum or steel bowl etc.): 2 x 10 '+ Horn
Cone: Kevlar impregnated paper
51mm diameter coil
Ease of use, installation (rack, accessories), connection, adjustment, adaptation? a particular situation (bi-amp, low or very powerful instruments, hi-effects "exotic" etc.) or a specific sound:
So we come to more personal information, I found the combo very easy to understand even if there is a wealth of possible settings, the manual is very well done with lots of info on each button and effects on the sound.
This allowed me to meet his entries found quickly by following a right hand of aid.
Sound? (First impression, perception involves only by repetition, as a group, respect the signal sent (color, saturation), the sound is clear there is much background or does the mass of the group, he is rather transparent , shiny, round, clear, choking):
Then the sound: first impression: wow smile.gif is what I am looking for a long time.
Then: A well slamming (quite funky and modern)
For the next round is a bit harder because of hps 2 of 10. I think investing in a 15 'when I can afford it.
Boosted channel is very easy to manage, and subtle enough if desired.
Dual Band Compressor Trace Elliot is a reference and do his job very well.
The pedal provided makes me not to buy because at the moment because I have a distortion, a graphic eq and a compressor provided in high-end amp.
Versatility (sound he adapts well to different styles of music and gaming, do not hesitate to specify which styles you play):
With several groups I've tested the amp in various configurations and have always managed to find a sound that I liked. (Punk, 70's Rock, Jazz, Reggae, Funk)
The saleswoman told me with ca get the sound of fleah (I may be sound but not the level anyway lol)
Like I said I owned a Fafner head why I had to have an SWR 4x10 golliath has been slow in coming and doing more together and repeat, then more and more transport I was tired of big head + 4x10 config. That's why I chose this combo,
Personal I find her really huge, I never played more than 3 / 10 in concert and everybody comes to listen.
If I had to redo the choice of buying a combo I will take the one without hesitation.
