    I'm really on the fence between these two great sounding amps. Any input to help me make a decision would be greatly appreciated. I mainly play rock, old punk, and some Metal but really love warm tube sound. Just want to make sure I don't get lost in the mix. Thanks...

    Warm tube = Ampeg SVT but since that's not on your list I'd go with the Streamliner.

    I went with the pro seven I wanted to try the g b but didn't have one close. I had to send the ampeg back after it died less than 2 wks. got the new one and have really enjoyed it .good luck with whatever you decide.

    I've had both and sold the Genz.
    I think the Streamliner is a a bit more picky when finding a cab that pairs well with it. I especially didn't take to it with the NX2 212T. To me the 7pro seems to be a bit more versatile but the Genz had more b~lls.
    A tough decision.
