Anyone Try the Trace Elliott Elf 1x10 Cab?

    Small, efficient, extended low end. You can't have all 3 in one cabinet.

    So it has a 3 or not?

    I doubt you'll get much extended low end with a single 10.

    I was thinking of stacking two . Plus, I only play 4 string basses.

    You can get extended low end out of single 10, but it has to be designed to do that, and...it won't do low and loud very well. I have a 110 cabinet, and it goes low, but it's very specifically designed for a gig I play where I don't need to get loud. It's also bigger then what you're looking at.

    2 of them will give you 6 dB more output. Probably OK??

    Is it a Trace Elliot ELF?

    I thought we'd debunked the "all 10's sound the same" myth here at TalkBass. ;)

    I just got a 2x10 micro stack. I play 4-string. The low E sounds authoritative and fine. The weight is mind-blowing. The Elf amp has got that TE tone. No gigs on it yet :)

    i have a NHT sub in the studio ... single 10 , specs state down to 15hz ... but it is a specific 'sub' driver .. !
  11. I have the Elf and two of those Elf 1x10 cabs. I use them for home practice and I've been using one of those cabs for band practice. I play 4 and 5 string basses. I've never heard complaints about it being too quiet (or too loud). It reproduces all the sounds I need to be productive. I'm itching to play them out live. I'm thinking that with some PA assistance, it'll be alright for personal monitoring at a gig. Maybe?

    The 110 is inadequate on its own if you are competing with drums and guitars. As a solo practice amp it’s fantastic. The paper 6db boost from adding a second cab is sizable; I may give it a try.
