    ACAEC4E4-CC2C-4580-8B14-12C523D39171. so, as a Hartke devotee, I haven’t had my head turned by anything in quite some time. While at my local guitar center I came across the Elf, which I had seen advertised. I fell in love instantly. With a pedal trade in I got 15% off and had to get it. The tone with my Hartke 210 hydrive is amazing and crisp. Couple it with my sansamp pedal and it’s got color and life. And, let’s be honest, peeps, 200 watts through 2 2x10s May very well be enough for most bar gigs. I’ll do up a video over the weekend if you’d like but this thing has blown me away like very few new pieces of gear have.

    I usually always gig with the two for two reasons: 1 - I like to get to 4ohms and get the max headroom from the rig and 2 - it looks cool :) . I guess a third reason may be to get a little height to get the sound closer to my ears. That said, if I was to have FOH support, I would happily gig with one and use it as a monitor for my stage volume. Finally, ZERO issue with using a new Hydrive with the older one other than if you have OCD like me! I hope this helps.

    I did paint them. I like to tell Larry he copied ME on the new releases. He assures me I wasn't alone in wanting black grilles. :)
