    Can you believe it's a Genz Benz! I used this head as a very overpowered DI - I always thought I’d eventually plug it up to a cabinet but never have. Thus, I need to sell this off and move in a much more pedalboard-reasonable direction. Class A, tube-y goodness, lots of flexibility and I/O to satisfy.

    An unfortunately, and regrettably, pretty major flaw you’ll notice: master knob is broken off. This didn’t affect my usage (as a DI), but still should be well noted here - selling at a hopefully low enough price to still entice. Should be a simple enough fix if you're handy with pots/amps or have a good tech. Hell - use this thing direct and be crazy like me! Will come with original GB soft bag, power cable, and manual. Currently velcro'd to my board, but will ship with feet!

    Hoping for a straight sale on this one, $300 shipped CONUS - willing to ship elsewhere if buyer pays additional costs. Love this thing! Hoping it goes to a good home.

    Do you have the knob? Does it make a sound when plugged into a cabinet?

    The knob that wasn't supposed to ever leave the zip pocket has left the zip pocket unfortunately. Sounded great when I plugged it into my old man's Bergantino cab a couple years ago!

    How have you been turning the volume pot?

    I haven't been! I've been sending signal to FOH from the direct out, and if memory serves me - the master knob never affected overall volume when going direct anyway. That's why I'm hoping someone can get more use out of this thing as a proper I'm completely nerfing it at the moment!
