British amplifier designer Trace Elliot proudly announces the availability of the full Trace Acoustic guitar amplifier line.
Over two decades ago, Trace Elliot revolutionized the world of acoustic instrumentation with its original TA Series. Trace Elliot brought studio-quality acoustic reproduction to the stage through designs that incorporated very high-impedance (piezo pickup) inputs, notch filters, phantom power, DSP effects and Dynamic Correction, unique circuitry that reproduces the sparkling top end of an acoustic instrument without relying on high-frequency horns (which can produce harsh, unwanted overtones).
While the influence of Trace Acoustic is still widely felt throughout the industry, today acoustic musicians can experience a new generation of Trace Acoustic models more evolved than their classic forebears, yet still endowed with their original engineering spirit of innovation. Lighter and more powerful than ever with a wealth of cutting-edge features, the new generation of Trace Acoustic amps again sets the standard for acoustic amplification.
Designed in the U.K. and produced in the U.S.A., the Trace Acoustic TA Series consists of three models: the TA-300, TA-200, and TA-100 (pictured). All models feature Trace Elliot’s signature Shape circuit and built-in auto-compressor on each channel, as well as customizable DSP effects with parameter and setting adjustment with separate reverbs that can be assigned to each channel.
These versatile new amps include two modes of switchable features for presets and performance variable controls, all of which are also conveniently footswitchable using the supplied six-function foot controller with 25-foot cable. New FET circuitry ensures switching is extremely quiet and not audible during a performance.
In addition, the TA-100 and TA-200 include a rugged, ballistic nylon shoulder bag, so players can carry both their amp and guitar at the same time. The TA-300 includes a high-quality amp cover to protect it during transit.
Trace Acoustic TA Series amplifiers are available now from authorized retailers.
