    I've had the 4x10 cabinet for some time and I like it alot. it is loud and goes real deep. It is built like a tank and is heavy. It has been absolutely reliable. However, because of its weight and size I'm looking at moving toward two 1x12 cabinets for ease of transport.

    I'm using the GBE 600 as my main head, and I think it sounds great. The 2 blendable preamps makes it very versatile. With the tube pre, it's a very warm growly sound. With the fet pre, you can dial in a modern sound. Blend them and it's a think, warm, deep, hi-fi, sound...heh.
    The pre's are all foot-switchable, along with a bass boost, treble boost, and mid scoop. It works very well if you need to change your sound mid-song.

    Also, I haven't seen genz-benz around very much. I have never seen another bass player in person use one. Are they a small company, new company?
