Trace ELF combos

Recommended Posts

The new 1x8" and 1x10". Anyone got one of these? Would very much like to know more about them - so little out there. Thanks

Prompted by your question I've just had a quick look at these.

You can buy the head for £225 and the matching cab for £279, so the combo that brings these together costs £579. Really?

Makes more sense to buy the separates.

Makes even more sense to buy the head for £225 (I have one, and it's a very useful backup plus rehearsal tool) and a Barefaced One10 for £369, but that's just my opinion. 9_9

Usually its the other way around: Markbass LMIII £449 and NYC 121 cab £415 but the same thing as a combo £659

Assume this is for the 1x10”? There is no 1x8” cab currently in Trace line up and the 1x8 combo is mostly where my interest lies.

I understand the case for separates which has been much debated here but combos is where I am at and it looks like Trace has made a compelling  shot at it. Love to hear from anyone who has one.

yes, ELF/Barefaced I’m sure is a great pairing.

However, take your point that separates make a more financially compelling case if you want to go 1x10”.

This is certainly the first 1x8 combo I have seen that looks a serious proposition. Perhaps there is little demand for such a thing?

The smallest Genz Shuttle combo is (was?) a 1x8, I would be surprised if the Trace was better, but if it is I’m also interested. There are almost no tiny giggable combos around, would be nice to have some more choice, they’re life savers for gigs that involve having to get on public transport. The latest Genzler stuff looks amazing but still too bulky for rush hour London hell.

I'd definitely go for the separates, why miss out on having a quality head you can stick in your gig bag if gear goes down? also it's fun to to pair the elf with other speakers.

why make the 1x10" at 16lbs heavier by adding an amp? stick the Elf amp in your gigbag or back pocket and leave the cab at 16lbs is the best idea ymmv etc
