Pro bassists know that small bass combo amps just don’t move enough air to sound like the big rigs. Enter the Trace Elliot ELF Bass Combo. Weighing in at just 18 lbs., this pint-sized 200-watt 1 x 10" amp delivers big-rig tone in a package you can carry in one hand. Trace ELF Combos use the finest speaker components and are purpose-built to make you sound great. Perfect on its own for small-to-midsize stages, the ELF Bass Combo is equipped with a gig-ready, ultra-quiet DI that sends your optimized tone to the house mix for larger venues. The DI is also ideal for recording. Just booked a really big gig? Take an ELF Combo and an external 1 x 10 or 2 x 8 cab, and you’ll have more than enough power.
The secret sauce in the ELF Combo is its built-in Trace Elliot ELF ultra-compact bass amp. Weighing only 1.6 lbs. and able to fit inside your jeans pocket, the ELF is perhaps the most portable, gig-worthy amp we’ve seen at Sweetwater. The ELF offers plenty of options, including a wide-range input gain control with signal-level indication and 3-band EQ that emulates the response of renowned Trace Elliot multiband graphic EQ filters. Ultra-high preamp input impedance, at more than 10 Mohms, provides maximum sensitivity when using passive pickups, while the post-EQ balanced XLR DI output with ground lift routes classic Trace Elliot tone to a mixing console or recording device. A 1/4" headphone output allows for quiet practice. The ELF amp proved the old adage that “good things come in small packages.” Now that’s truer than ever with Trace ELF combos.
