I tried a TE Elf at Guitar Center the other day, and liked it. Seemed pretty simple, intuitive and natural-sounding, although I wish I could've cranked it up at band practice to see if I still liked it at higher volume. Went home, downloaded the manual and checked to see what the EQ centers were (80 Hz, 400 Hz and 4.2 kHz) and read that the EQ was intended to preserve the legacy of "Trace Elliot sound." Having never played through any other TE amps, other than trying the TE model in my Zoom preamp, I got curious since I don't know what sound that company's amps are known for. I just remember them as visually striking black-and-green amps on various stages in the 90s. I have a general idea of what the SVT sound is, and the Marshall Superbass sound, and the really clean, wide-range hi-fi sound that I associate with high-end active basses and clean preamps and megawatts and multi-way cabinets. But how would you characterize the sound(s) of TE products?
