A while ago this thread challenged the TB community for some fEARful comparison clips: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/fearful-sound-clips-889345/ SO I have done just that. It was difficult to do this well, especially with my recording gear, but I think the results are worth posting with caveats and full disclosure of methodology. I can hear why I prefer my 15/6 in this comparison. I can also hear why I was pretty darn happy with the GB 212 until I got my fEARful - it is an excellent bass cabinet. So, the nitty-gritty. Sound Cloud recording with explanation of comparison For the first two comparisons, the funk riff that starts clean and ends with envelope filter, and the rock riff, the Genz cab is first and the 15/6 is second. For the last two comparisons, the wobbly riff and the fuzz riff, the 15/6 is first and the GB cab is second. Please excuse my sloppy playing! My Opinion Both of these are fine bass cabinets, the Genz Benz is probably my favorite commercial cabinet of those that I have owned. I feel the fEARful is really something special though. The better the speakers you listen to this on, and the louder you listen, the more distinctions you will hear. Still, the recording process was inexact, especially trying to get volumes equal, and my recorder is not of very high quality to begin with, all of which I think masks some of the differences between these two cabinets. Gory Details I did not re-eq the amp, a Genz Benz ShutleMax 9.2, or the bass, a 4-string Czech-made SSD, between takes. I had the tweeter knob on the GB 212 at about 9:30. The fEARful has no tweeter. For the funk riff I used the FET chn with bright engaged, and a Proton. For the rock riff I used the tube chn with a bit of grit. The wobble was done with the FET chn, bright engaged, and a Red Ripper and SA BEF with the HH attachment. The fuzz was also through the FET chn, bright engaged, with a ss/bs TAFM. I attempted to match the volume between the 4-ohm Genz cab and the 8 ohm 15/6 with the master volume on the amp, and it appeared close on the recorder's meter. I did not adjust the recording levels on the recorder. Later playback showed the Genz to have been louder, so I adjusted the volume of the recordings in Audacity. I recorded onto an old Fostex VF80ex, which records at 44.1 kHz sample rate, 16 bits. I recorded with an unmatched pair of AKG C 3000 B condenser microphones placed about 5' from the two bass cabinets. Mics set in an "X" pattern. Realize this is not really "hi-fi" recording in any sense of the word.
