Genz Benz Shuttlemax 12.2 vs GK Fusion 550
I have Fusion 550, but I'm intrigued by Shuttlemax 12.2. How do they compare? It seems like Shuttlemax is overally better amp - lighter, louder, more versatile, but I love my Fusion and I wouldn't wont to make the mistake by selling it and buying something I wouldn't like in the end.

If you love the sound of your Fusion, then why change?
I really dig Genz gear, but if the tone of the Fusion floats your boat, then I'd stick with that.

It`s the weight. I've found that i use my backup micro amp more and more, purely out of laziness.

I have never played the Fusion 550.. I hear great reports about it though.... I have a shuttlemax 9.2 and i love it.. Loud and super easy to use and tweak...

Although I always hear great things about Genz, I would be hestitant to buy one as it seems current owner FMIC is phasing them out. Nothing worse than trying to get service on a discontinued line.

I had a fusion 550 for a few years and loved it. I replaced it partly because of weight but also just to try new gear. I eventually got a shuttle max 9.2. Both are great sounding amps. The Shuttle max has a little more versatility to it and can get pretty close to the Fusion 550. I do kind of miss the GK sound though. Very up front and has a certain growl I have yet to find anywhere else. You can't go wrong either way.

Im curios to what volume the Fusion 550 .. Its listed at 500 watts.. There is 500watts and then there is 500watts That fusion 550 looks really cool
|goran ||09-29-2013 06:23 AM |
It's the loudest 500W you can imagine.

I was on the cell phone so I couldn't type a lot.
Anyway, it is very very loud amp. I know that watts don't tell the whole story, but you could fool anyone by telling them that it is 800 or 900W amp.
I'm still on the fence of selling it and, now that I've read a couple of answers, it seems that ShuttleMax 9.2 would be even better choice. Decisions decisions

The Shuttlemax 9.2is a killer amp! Loud and very tweak able

GK has always been the standard for loud. Definitely the loudest 500w amps I've ever used. My old Fusion 550 definitely kept up with my old markbass tube 800.
|svtb15 ||09-30-2013 05:38 PM |
The markbass tube 800 is LOUD... wow the Fusion 550 keeps up with that! wow
