    Hey Everyone,

    I recently purchased the Genz Benz Streamliner 900 and really like the sound. I was just wondering what settings others are using and what type of music they are using it for?

    There is also a " tutorial " thread on settings for this head if you do a search.

    I own one. The STL is a unique head. It is bass heavy and I used to dial my bass in around 10:00. As long as you don't get too much bass in the mix you will have more adjustment for your overall tone. You can also swap out different tubes to make it sound tighter etc. Look at those threads that are posted.

    Search for the Streamliner tone control primer thread. It's hundreds of posts long.

    There is also a Streamliner tube rolling thread. There is a lot of good info there too. Swapping out the 12AX7 in V1 with a 5751 will tighten up the bass and bring out the mids.

    I had one for a while and sold it like the GAS infected guy I am. I might end up trading off my LM800 for another Streamliner 900. I really do prefer the Shuttle 900 though.

    As far as settings like everyone else there are a number of threads to check out.

    Streamliner 900 continues to be my favorite micro head. I'm keeping it forever along with my SVTs.
