Weighing just 1.6 lbs., the Trace Elliot® ELF bass amplifier is a revolutionary amp that's small enough to fit in your back pocket. Its remarkable technology and size make it the most portable, gig-worthy bass amp ever made; an ideal solution for any bass player concerned with size and weight, but not willing to compromise on tone or performance.

It delivers a solid, fan-cooled 200 continuous watts RMS at 4 Ohms. Its switch mode power supply has thermal as well as over-current protection, and its gain knob features a bicolor LED that turns red whenever the preamp compressor engages. The unique input gain features 3 operational modes: uncompressed, variable multiband compression, and overdrive. In terms of sonic quality, it provides a clean signal path with simple controls, making it easy to achieve a professional bass tone. The 3-band rotary EQ has 3 proprietary Trace Elliot filters: low-center (80 Hz), mid-center (500 Hz) and high-center (4.2 kHz). Additionally, its Studio-quality XLR outputs and ground-lift switch ensure that the tone the player has on stage is the same as that reproduced in the PA. There's also a headphone output, enabling quiet practice.

The ELF comes with an embroidered nylon carrying case and a Union Jack sticker that reminds of Trace Elliot's U.K. roots.
