    I called chuck levins (Washington music) the other day to get a price on a genz uber cabinet and was surprised to find that they only have 2 genz cabinets in stock and they are floor displays/demo cabs. They said they haven't been able to order any more and are expecting an announcement soon regarding the status of genz benz? What happened?

    Fender shut them down. Lots of threads about it.

    Kaman Music the parent corporation of Genz-Benz was bought out by FMIC some years ago and Fender (it appears) has made the move to incorporate Genz-Benz engineering into the Fender fold.

    I remember seeing those threads which seemed like a lot of speculation and nothing concrete being put out by genz. I didn't realize fender was going shut down genz?
