Just scored a Genz-Benz combo

  1. I just scored a Genz-Benz intro 50 on ebay. It seamed like a decent deal 150.00 shipped

    Anyone had one? Any Good?

    I know, I should have asked first :D but it was ending so I snagged it. :D

    Dunno about that model, but I did not fare well with a GBE 2 combo that I bought. The silly thing actually plays fan noise thru the driver!
     
  3. I think TBer puarjia(sp)had a couple & sold one; IIRC correctly he gave it good marks. I like GB stuff in general. Be sure & tell us what you think after using it a bit.
     
  4. Will do:bassist:

    I played a GB through a Bergantino HT210S. The overall sound complimented the Berg very well. Very clear. I really like the SS/tube blend.

    Someone has said it before and after my experience I will say it again. Genz Benz is probably the most underrated amp manufacturer.

    To me the tone was something similar to GK without the tube engaged, but when it was you could definately tell. Added a nice balance of tube warmth and solid state punch.
