Simple config:
An equalizer
A key Pre Shape Trace Elliot
1 compressor
not adjusting bass / treble
For sound, it just fumbles despite the apparent ease, but whatever the setting, the net is made, without burrs.


Ideally suited to my current style, Afro-jazz.
Overall, it takes that big sound. No real resources for crystalline highs, but that's not what I asked.
I play a squier classic vibe, Jazzbass passive, no effect superimposed.

The pre-shape works wonders: the bass is punchy, treble clear and aggressive. The compressor is also effective, but I have not been sufficiently tamed.


I use it for almost a year now. I tried other amps, mostly Hartke, Ampeg and Fender again in studios (including the Trace Elliot 715, excellent, cabinet 15 inches).
I flashed on the Trace Elliot and I have decided to buy one.

I especially like the type, coarse, net of all frequencies. In addition, it looks to be the rugged, indestructible. So for a time, a great value.

This choice I would do without hesitation.
