    So i just received my Streamliner 900 that i bought from the classifieds. :hyper:

    HOLY $#@%!!!

    This amp is SICK. I have been chasing this type of tone for years with a Sansamp BDDI and whatever i used for a head at the time. After scouring this http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/genz-streamliner-600-900-tone-control-primer-813663/ for the last day and a half i took note of some popular settings and have been having a blast trying them out. Right now I'm using 11-1:30-11 (gain,vol @noon) and 600 mid.

    It really warms up my Schroeder cabinets like crazy!

    The obligatory crappy cell pic!

    Compared to the old, beat up 800RB i've had for years it's warm like hawaii in summertime!!! I purchased a TH500 in November (that was stolen in January), and i thought that amp was going to be it for me. After hearing the STL 900 i realized i was waaayyy off in what i thought my tonal goals really were. This thing is for real!

    Congrats - I really like my Streamliner 900... IMO, the best feature of these amps is the killer sounding DI...

    since I got my streamliner, I've sold off my old amp (only amp I had for 16 years) and started selling off some pedals I had been using for tone sweetening. Great amp

    Had mine for a week or so, completely hooked...An amp that has a build quality to match the price is a rare thing, an all tube pre-amp is a rare thing, a (real) studio quality DI is a rare thing, a line level DI is a really rare thing...did i also mention it sounds great?

    Amp bliss.... selling Ashdown, G&L JB2, Ibby SRA500 and mebbe even the TC to help fund both it and the Uber Quad that sneaked itself in :)

    Enjoy!

    I think you will enjoy it-Ive had mine for a little over a year and still love it.I would imagine it sounds great with the Schroeder too. Take some time to experiment with the EQ-there is a lot going on in there.

    Preachin' to the choir my friend. It's ALL I use ever since they were introduced. I just played a nice small club last Saturday with my Epi 15 and NO FOH support. People in the BACK of the place (about 150 feet away) said my bass sounded fantastic.

    My Streamliner 900 came yesterday. WOW! Looks like there will be 2 Ampeg SVT-4 Pro's for sale!!!

  13. I would be curious to hear how you find the pairing of the 900 with your 215. Seems like the right pairing of yin and yang.

    I got to use the Streamliner at a quickie rehearsal today and everyone noticed a HUGE difference. It did seem a little subdued through my 8 ohm 212PL, but a little knob twiddling and man... it was thick.

    There is a lot going on the EQ section. I can see where some would get frustrated, especially with a mid-scooped cab. I found myself wanting some more highs, but that was easily adjusted with the onboard EQ of my bass. I was cranking today and never saw the clip light. I have yet to really mess with the Gain button, does that drive the first tube stage harder? It seemed kinda "grindy" when i turned it on.

    All in all, i'm stoked so far. The first gig I get to use it is next Thursday night.

    Where did my post go? Why are the mods deleting posts for no reason? This place is changing, and I don't like it. I think I'm going to just use this place for their classifieds.
