    All tube, 2-Channels, Genz Benz Global Controls, Damping, Contour, Compression and switching controls. 5-button FS incl.

    This is probably the nastiest combo I have every heard, Especially if you're playing metal or hardcore. The bass response from this thing is amazing. My Rhythm guitarist used this for over a year, while my lead player used a Peavey 5150-II and Mesa 412.... the Genz was MINDBLOWINGLY LOUDER and bassier. The Warm channel had great lead tone, and this amp has so many tone-shaping and Overdrive Characteristic controls compared to the average tube amp its unreal. Seriously a monster.

    $1,000.00 Shipped OBO
