    I was playing a Genz Benz GBE 600 today, and uh yeah. It that amazing. I gotta have that head. My local shop is selling it for 840, but I saw on Guitar-villa.com that its on sale for 499. Dang. I can't believe how amazing that head is. Yeah.

    It plays like a dream. I have a really hard time describing tone, but its versatile like crazy. It can do the muddy Ampeg thing, or the chrystal clear crazy SWR thing, or the hi-fi clinical GK style. I'm in absolute love.

    Uhm yeah, that guy...well, he's an idiot...or he got a bad one. The GBE 600 is one of the loudest bass heads I've ever tried for its power. I'm thinking of going all Genz (sorry, Dan :(). GK will always be in my heart.

    Our very own TB brother/luthier Darrin Huff, dhuffguitars, has a GBE 600 if I'm not mistaken. As for me, I've never seen a GBE 600. I have compared the GBE 400 to the EBS HD 350 and for my dollar, I would take the GBE 400.

    I myself am intereted in buying the Genz-Benz GBE 600 head. My local music store is selling it for $650. You have convinced me even more to buy it. I looked at guitarzilla.com, but i cannot find it for that price anywhere.

    What is the cab you suggest i buy with it?

    Looks like they are slow to update the site. They still have the old model GK's listed.

    It is very cool that it can handle a 2 ohm load. That really opens up some possibilities as far as cabs go. I plan to seek one out to play.
     
  10. :cool: I've got a GBE-600. It's one damn fine head. I also own a GB LS-210, LS-112, and LS-115 cabinets. I've been very happy with all of them. They have great tone, good quality, and reasonable prices. I was an Ampeg devotee for years, but these things are just as good in my book. I'm on the verge of buying one of the new GB NEOX-212 cabs. I'm working out the deal with my local shop now.

    I really don't think you can go wrong with Genz-Benz bass products. Can't speak for their guitar products. Of course, there will always be someone who'll not like them. There's always someone who doesn't like almost everthing.
     
  11. :cool: I've got it mounted in a 2-space TKL rack, similar to the SKB molded plastic type. Head + case weighs in around 35 pounds.
