Huge sound and power from a head you can put in your pocket.
Weighing just 1.6 pounds, the revolutionary Trace Elliot ELF is small enough to fit in your back pocket. Its remarkable technology and size make it the most portable, gig-worthy bass 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.
Designed in the U.K. and the U.S., the ELF produces a solid, fan-cooled 200 continuous watts RMS at 4 ohms. The switch mode power supply has thermal as well as over-current protection, and the gain knob features a bicolor LED that turns red when the preamp compressor engages. The unique input gain has three regions of operation - uncompressed, variable multiband compression, and overdrive. In terms of sonic quality, the ELF has a clean signal path with simple controls, making it easy to achieve a professional bass tone. The 3-band rotary EQ has three proprietary Trace Elliot filters: low center (80 Hz), mid center (500 Hz) and high center (4.2 KHz). Studio-quality XLR outputs, with a ground lift switch, ensure the tone the player has on stage is the same tone in the PA. There’s also a headphone output to enable quiet practice. The ELF provides all of this versatility in a unit that measures a trailblazing 1.35-in. x 6.75-in. x 4.10-in.—today the smallest bass amp in the industry.
The ELF comes with an embroidered nylon carrying case, an owner’s manual CD-ROM that includes the REAPER DAW and Peavey ReValver amp modeling software, and a Union Jack sticker that reminds of Trace Elliot’s U.K. roots.

Comments about Trace Elliot ELF 200W Micro Bass Guitar Amp Head:
I have owned heads, cabinets, and combos over the years from Ampeg, Carvin, Eden, Fender, GK, Hartke, Peavey, SWR, and more. This amp is truly impressive. Forget the fact that it is incredibly tiny for a moment, and what you have is a powerful sounding amp with simple controls and the basic features a player needs. (I put this through the paces today with a Fender Precision with Flats, an Ibanez 6-string, and a Music Man Stingray. I am playing it through a Fender Rumble 15 cabinet and it sounds great!) The EQ is simple but can give you cutting mids with solid lows or a nice scooped slap tone. The headphone out lets you use it as a handy practice tool. There is no fan noise whatsoever, and my bass sounds solid and strong through it. I appreciate the clip light indicator because it lets you set the gain right where it should be (just under clipping). My Ampeg PF-350 had that too, but compared to this, the Ampeg sounded a bit thin. This is the ballsiest Class D amp I've heard. So, in summary this amp is a contender just on sound and features. (I don't care about effects loops or Speakon vs 1/4 inch speaker outs). NOW, add to this that it is barely bigger than my hand and I find myself very impressed. Nice job, Trace Elliot!
