    Fell hard for a G-K MB800, looking to sell/trade my Genz.

    Great sounding, lightly-gigged amp, mint, with original packaging.

    Interested in trades for a Genz Shuttlemax 9.2, 12.0 or 12.2, or possibly a REDDI.

    Asking $675 shipped OBO, Continental US and Canada.

    I'm afraid so...


    When I bought the Genz, I was trying to tame a Flite cab with a harsh upper-mid spike, and the Streamliner was just the ticket.

    Now I have an AudioKinesis cab that's smooth as butter, and the Streamliner isn't as good a fit. I'd keep the Streamliner as a backup just for the amazing tube DI (one of the places where the Genz flat KILLS the G-K), but I've got other priorities at the moment.

    I 100% agree with you... this amp isn't for all cabs... especially scooped warmer, smooth cabs. You'll love your GK or really.. the Shuttlemax 9.2 more. My 9.2max beat my MB500 by a mile...

    I have GK NEO cabs with a harsh upper mid spike & the Streamliner is PERFECT with them! I'm keeping my SL 900 for good & if I need a different tone, plugging in a pedal in the back for a different amp.

    I've got a brand new reddi(2weeks) and I haven't decided if I want to keep it. How old is your amp?

    What tubes are you including for that price. From the post I have read you have some premo tubes.

    Stock, or your choice of an EH 12AY7 or Tung Sol 12AX7 either one placed in the position of your choice (V1, 2, or 3).

    I should explain that I'm not a tube hoarder or collector. They come and go, as most of the stuff I try in amps is purchased on behalf of my customers- a nice little perk of my work as a tech.

    All PM's answered, still available.

    Would still really like a ShuttleMax 12.0 or 12.2.

    Will not consider any rack mount head, M-Pulse 600's included.

    Thanks for the love. Still looking for cash offers, or a trade for a Shuttlemax. Would consider a 900-watt, if there are no 12.0 or 12.2's kicking around...
