    Sacrificed a truly special Thumb bass for this sucker. I honestly had never plugged in to a tube amp before so it was a bold move but one I have been wanting to take for many many years.

    After a few days my thoughts are that this thing is truly beyond belief incredible. There is not a setting you could do on this amp that doesn't sound incredible. The depth is just inconceivable. I have dialed in a few different tones and it has just blown me away. I honestly don't know how I am going to be able to set it for shows as the tone variation is just too cool. Cannot wait to crank it in anger...

    There is not a video of a Trace v8 on the net so I am fully commited to trying my best to record the monster as best as possible.

    Fare the well my beloved Thumb B.O has gone to a champion bloke who used to own one in the 90's and has been wanting one back ever since. I still have the big girl NT6 that is always by my side.

    I am one lucky bugger!!Cheers
