SNAMM06: New Bass Amps From Trace-Elliot
1215 Combo

British amplifier manufacturer Trace Elliot had several new products for bass players at the show including three 12-Band and three 7-band bass amplifiers . According to Trace Elliot both new ranges give discerning bassists more power and more control over their sound. 12-BAND
These amplifiers include six footswitchable features:
  • Pre-Shape, the famous Trace Elliot tone-shaping tool
  • Valve to add tube warmth and overdrive (12AX7/ECC83)
  • Vintage 12-band Trace Elliot graphic equalizer
  • Dual-band compressor with separate controls for high and low bands;
  • Sophisticated effects loop (high-pass/low-pass/full-range outputs, left/right/mono returns, series/parallel switch, loop level control)
  • Output mute that silences all outputs except the tuner out.
Other features include electronically balanced XLR DI outputs for pre-EQ and post-preamp left and right outputs, Celestion loudspeakers (1215 and 1210 models), left and right line outputs, MOSFET technology and two valve/tube driver stages for signal pre-conditioning before the power stage.
