Trace Elliot® introduced several new products at the 2017 NAMM Show, Jan. 19-22 in Anaheim, California.

Trace Elliot® Introduces ELF Bass Amplifier as Industry’s Smallest, Most Powerful Solution

Good things come in small packages, and now Trace Elliot® can add “small yet powerful” to that saying with the introduction of the ELF bass amplifier. 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 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.

Trace Ellioit ELF BassDesigned 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’’ by 6.75’’ by 4.10’’—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.

MSRP $399.99 USD

Trace Elliot® Unveils Transit™ A Preamp Pedal for Acoustic Guitars

Portable, practical, professional: These are the qualities that define the new Trace Elliot® Transit™ A Acoustic Guitar Preamp Pedal. As more players turn to convenient, lightweight and travel-ready gear, Trace Elliot answers the call with these self-contained rigs that function brilliantly as stand-alone preamp pedals, regardless of location or venue. The player simply takes their preamp pedal with them anywhere they go, and sends their tone directly to the front of house mix.Trace Elliot Transit A Preamp

Over the years, monitor systems have improved and in-ear monitors have become more prevalent, meaning fewer players rely on acoustic guitar amps. However, relying on different equipment and engineering means having to contend with inconsistency of tone. The Transit A Acoustic Guitar Preamp Pedal solves this problem by offering all the professional tone-shaping tools a player needs in one portable rig. The built in Compression, Notch Filter, Pre-shape and simple EQ controls ensure great basic tone, while the user-definable Boost, Chorus, Delay and Reverb offer all the tools necessary for artistic expression. The player uses the stereo output to feed their tone directly to the engineer.

The Transit A also features a clean signal path and simple controls that make it easy to achieve a professional acoustic tone. It has studio-quality D.I. Pre and Post XLR outputs (with ground lift) to ensure that the same tone the player has on stage is the same tone in the mix. The Transit A also has striking backlit controls with distinctive colors. Using the backlit knobs for the tuner is a novel and useful tool, since the entire control panel of the unit becomes the tuning scale.

The Transit A comes with an embroidered nylon carry bag. The owner’s manual CD-ROM includes the REAPER™ DAW software and Peavey® ReValver® amp modeling software. A Union Jack sticker is included as a reminder of Trace Elliot’s U.K. roots.
