    Interesting. I was talking to the Faital rep yesterday. He said that Genz switched exclusively to Faital drivers. I thought they mostly did neo. (he said that they have tons of neodynium on hand--they bought 200 tons or so he says). I usually associate Faital with Neo, but I guess that they do ceramic also.

    These guys are firing on all cylinders! Three nice lines of neo cabs, and now a lower priced ceramic line that is pretty much 'neo lightweight' (I assume due to the cab material and design).

    Something for almost everyone.

    And, Faital drivers are awesome. Great quality stuff, and looks like plenty of supply.
     
  4. New info added, see top post.

    I play it all. Whatever works for the gig
    Whats nice is the super light weight while using a Ceramic Mag.. Many people will be interested in these cabs.... Myself included


     
  6. Not to mention 8 ohms. This is going to get a lot more people on the GB bandwagon.

    I can see a lot of people that use the under powered ampeg BA115 getting one of these 115 combos.. (Sorry JimmyM) Love you man!

    Ampeg has some great stuff, I just don't like that BA115 combo. I and see this CTR500-115T as a real nice candidate...



     
  9. If anyone has street prices, would love to know. I assume Genz is updating the site as we speak.

    Probably the most on the ball bass amp/cab manufacturer in the current market, IMO.

    Definitely saving for a new Genz amp....but no rush....going to get the 'right' one.

    Anyone know when these will actually hit the websites and shelves? I'm guessing soon after NAMM.
     
  11. Really like the looks of the "Focus LT" series, ceramic magnets sound nice

    100% of the time.. from my experience... Genz will not show a product unless it is ready to ship... May want to call your dealers.. They may not know yet since Genz Benz allows the TB community to get a little sneak peak.
    . Im guessing but I may be wrong,, but the Website may wait until start the actual of NAMM show next week before they do a 3am update to the site... Just guessing...

    Gosh, that Shuttle 210t combo stack looks killer. I bet that thing slams....I'm in bad trouble...again.
     
  14. 2 of those 112Ts would match PERFECTLY with my Shuttle 3.0... just as I thought I had my cab situation figured out :rollno: Any news on retail price of these guys?
     
  15. +1

    Aged Horse mentioned on the other Genz thread that all new products are in their warehouse and ready to ship to the dealers.

  17. Thought I'd add that I've been emailing with Jeff a bit about when the new stuff will hit Canada, and he said sometime in February, probably mid to late month.

    correct Kirk. We are ready to ship...but most dealers are just finding out about the product now...and/or at NAMM.

    I'm going to pull the trigger on one of these combos. I can't decide if I want the 112 or 210 version...decisions, decisions.
