About This Listing

The most powerful bass amp I’ve ever owned or played on. More than you’ll ever need. Sounds incredible with the blendable preamps. Not touring currently (is anyone?), so don’t need this beast. In great condition other than minor surface scuff and patina on the top, bottom, and handles. No issues whatsoever. Would consider trades. PM with offers.

The Genz Benz GBE 1200 bass amp takes the excellent design and tonal refinements of the GBE 600 and adds 1200W output power (at 2 ohms). Its ability to drive resistive and reactive speaker loads plus its extended burst power makes it louder, punchier, warmer and more articulate. The GBE 1200 is 3 rack units high with a beautiful 5mm-thick aluminum faceplate and curved metal rack handles. It has a dual channel preamp--one FET and one tube--with 5-band active EQ for maximum tonal flexibility. Each preamp can be used individually or blended together. In addition to the channel controls, it also has Genz Benz's Signal Shape circuit with Low Frequency Extension, Mid Scoop, and High Frequency Attack controls. The channels and Signal Shape circuit are footswitchable with an included 5-button footswitch.

The GBE 1200 delivers 550W at 8 ohms, 1000W at 4 ohms, and 1200W at 2 ohms. It has an active/passive selectable input, signal mute switch, tuner out, a soft-limit circuit, LED indicators, master volume, sturdy metal chassis, knurled aluminum knobs with detents, variable speed fan cooling, full-featured D.I., three effects loops, slave out jack, dual Speakon output connectors, POWERFLEX impedance circuit, impedance selector switch, dual voltage switch, and a heavy-duty toroidal transformer. 19"W x 5-1/2"H x 15"D. 42 lbs.

Powerflex impedance circuitry optimizes the massive power supply to more effectively deliver maximum power at 4 ohms and extended 2 ohm operation into reactive loads. A large switch on the rear panel is provided so that the amplifier can be switched to correctly match the total cabinet impedance load. A front-panel amber LED indicator indicates when the Powerflex feature is switched to 2 ohm operation.
