Product Description

The Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 incorporates a high-innovative removable chassis design powered 600 watt design, while remaining extremely compact and weighting only 3.75 lbs. The Shuttle 60 blends the best of analog and digital platforms to produce the ultimate in warmth, punch and power.

The Shuttle 6.0's signal path utilizes a 12AX7 tube preamp with our acclaimed Active EQ and responsive Signal Shape circuitry. An optional foot switch is available for use with the Signal Mute and our 3 Signal Shaping circuits.

5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
Written by one of our gear experts! "Genz Benz's entry into the compact head market has set the bar high."
Sound: Highly versatile sound out of this. Of course, it's got that clean tone Genz Benz is known for - but I like a grittier rock sort of sound. The preamp gain lets you push the onboard 12AX7 as much as you like to get just that. Of course, it's not going to sound quite like an SVT, but as these compact hybrid amps go, it's very versatile and has a wide variety of good tones available. Feature: The cut and boost switches are great to have whenever you need a little more of something, and having a mid frequency knob is always nice. I haven't had the opportunity to try it out with a proprietary footswitch, but it does have that capability. It only has Speakon outs, which you may find annoying if you don't own any of those cables yet, but those are quickly becoming commonplace on bass amps. There's also an onboard DI which I typically don't use, but will do the trick in a pinch. Ease of Use: Very much plug and play. The tonal palette is wide enough that just messing with knobs, you'll be able to find a variety of tones to suit you. Quality: Has been very reliable whenever I take it out to a show. There are a couple paint chips flecked off the top by now, but after 7 months of transport to and from shows, that's of course liable to happen to anything. Solid metal construction. It's extremely light, though, and I'm sure dropping it could be seriously harmful depending on the height. It's 4 pounds, though! Put it in your backpack! Value: Given its tone and ease of transport, this head would be an asset to just about anybody. Its 600 watt output, though, makes it downright indispensable! Being able to get a tube sound with ample power for this price is absolutely crazy, and I would recommend this to anybody looking for a good head for a compact rig. One annoyance is that it cannot go down below 4 ohms, so consider that when selecting your cabs. Manufacturer Support: I have not had to deal with the company, but I did look into support options before I bought this item. Genz Benz has customer support above and beyond what the vast majority of amp companies can be counted on for. I've seen product managers and even Jeff Genzler himself (guess who) on Internet support boards helping out users. Really a company that takes pride in their work. The Wow Factor: When my friends and bandmates see this thing, their first reaction, without exception, is one of disbelief. The thing is powerful and sleek. Again, it doesn't have the vintage appeal of, say, a Sunn, but people will be shocked once they hear it in action. Overall: Depending on which way the wind blows, I may get some high-level or vintage head in the future, but I do not plan to ever sell this head. It's the cornerstone of my rig, and too versatile and powerful to just stop using. Highly recommended.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
