    I'm thinking of getting a shuttle 6.0 or 6.2. Firstly what are the differences between these two . Secondly which cabinets go well with this amp?

    The 6.2 has a much more open low end and is a far rounder sounding head IME/IMO. Any good cab should match well, depending on what type of tone you like and how loud you want to be.

    I have a Shuttle 6.2. For a while I used it with the Genz Benz 12" cab and an Ampeg 15" and it sounded great. Last week, I tried it for the first time with an Ampeg 4x10 and the 15" and not surprisingly it sounded even better.

    A single 12 isn't ideal for bass as most of us would agree and while it translated the mids and highs pretty well, a 4x10 was plainly superior. If I could only use it with one cab it would be a 4x10 for sure.

    I already have 2 x RS10 TC Electronic cabs. Do u think they would work well with it?

    If you like the way they sound then they will pair well with the 6.2. That will make a pretty sweet stack :)

    I would strongly advise the 6.2 over the 6.0. I am really enjoying mine through various cabs (GB Neox 212, Shuttle 2 210 and 112, LDS 15.6).

    Here's an old thread on this topic:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/genz-benz-shuttle-vs-shuttle-2-a-959032/

    I did my research before purchasing a 6.2 last year (currently FS in the TB classifieds) and agree with everybody else that the 6.2 is a major improvement on the 6.0. These are great little heads. The only reason I'm selling mine is because I replaced it with a Shuttle 9.2.

    As for cabs, I've played the 6.2 through my old Ashdown mini 12T and 10T cabs and my current fEARful 12/6/1. It works great with both.
