Trace Elliot ELF Ultra Compact Bass Amplifier Head (200 Watts)

Small enough to fit in your back pocket, yet powerful enough to rock a stadium, the Trace Elliot ELF packs 200 watts of power into a 1.6 pound enclosure.
Good things come in small packages, and now Trace Elliot can add "small yet powerful" to that saying with the introduction of the ELF Ultra Compact Bass Amplifier Head. Weighing just 1.6 pounds, this revolutionary amp is small enough to fit in your back pocket. The ELF’s remarkable technology and size make it the most portable, gig-worthy amplifier ever made. It’s an ideal solution for any bassist who is concerned with size and weight, but isn’t willing to compromise on tone or performance.

"Excellent Amp!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was unsure if this would sound amazing and have enough power. It sounds amazing! Easy interface, no fuss. DI to FOH sounds great as well. It's 200 watts at 4 ohms. This is enough for small gigs and rehearsals for sure. Plus the FOH DI provides more sound should you need it. Could you play a 300 person venue? Not likely but with a lot of PA support maybe. If they come out with a 500 watt Elf I'm upgrading.
