The Trace Elliot 715 X is a top tier bass guitar combination amplifier. I've used this for recording electric bass guitar in the studio. Don't let the size fool you, this is a very power amplifier. It has 500 watts of power and a single 15" speaker. It's a solid state amplifier and also has a 1" horn in addition to the main speaker. The amp has all the routing options you could ask for, with 1/4" connections for input, line out, and a send and return loop. It also has an XLR output for taking a direct signal from the amp.

UTILIZATION

It's not too hard to use the Trace Elliot 715 X, but it has a ton of features and controls to be aware of. First of it has a seven band graphic EQ which sounds great, in addition to built in compression and gain control. It's definitely a self sufficient amplifier as you can get most of the sounds you're going to need right there. I don't think a manual is necessary, but it can't hurt to have it around if you've just bought this amp and want to know everything about it.

SOUNDS

The Trace Elliot 715 X is up there with some of the best bass amplifiers that I've ever recorded with. I honestly wasn't expecting it as I didn't know much about Trace Elliot and it doesn't exactly look like it's going to be an incredible amp. It's a lot smaller than most amps, but still packs an insane amount of power and can certainly get loud enough for recording or playing shows. The built in EQ and compression sounds fantastic and is a great bonus in addition to the great amp.

OVERALL OPINION

The Trace Elliot 715 X is definitely a professional's amplifier and seems to be popular amongst pro bassists. It's expensive, but not terrible when you think about what top end amps will run you. That said, for this price you could get an Ampeg with a lot more speakers and louder sound, but if you aren't playing loud rock music, this might be a better choice. If you're a bass player and you don't yet know about this amp or Trace Elliot, I'd highly recommend getting hip to it.
