Trace Elliot GP11 combo came in dead… Simple problem with the wire from the speaker fuses broken off. I gave it a full service and replaced the broken castors and cleaned her up. Then played it with my own band for a practice. Sounds great, also later changed the supply caps and fan (as it was noisey.. duff bearings) My favourite bass amp at the moment.
