[b][size=4][font=arial, sans-serif]*** NOW SOLD - Thanks for looking! ***[/font][/size][/b]

[size=4][font=arial, sans-serif]Hi Folks[/font][/size]

[font=arial, sans-serif]A recent bass purchase means I'm trying to balance the books and, as a result, I now have this [/font][b]Genz Benz NX2 212-T[/b] [b]Neo[/b][font=arial, sans-serif] [b]600 watts 4 ohm Cab[/b] + [/font][b]Roqsolid cover[/b][font=arial, sans-serif] for sale at [/font][b]£SOLD[/b][font=arial, sans-serif] or near offer, plus p&p.[/font]

[size=4][font=arial, sans-serif][b]Reason for selling etc..[/b][/font][/size]
[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]I bought this in August 2015 from Hamfist and then sold it to chimike 3 months later when I went down a valve amp route and bought an Ampeg rig. [/size][size=4]Less than 6 months ago, I bought it back from Mike so I would have a lightweight cab in my kit bag. [/size][size=4]However, I'm just not gigging enough these days and whenever I do, it's with my Ampeg rig. So, in short, this is something that's not being used and if I can sell it here, then I won't have t sell my Schecter Diamond P5 bass that's currently for sale, which I think I'd rather keep..[/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4][b]Sound[/b][/size][/size][/font]
[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]This is very subjective obviously, but IMHO it's a fantastic sounding cab that sounds great with my solid state Hughes & Kettner Bassbase 600 head, my Ampeg V4BH valve head and also with the Eden WT-400 head that I've just sold to geoff90guitar.[/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]One of the reasons I bought it originally was because I heard it was pretty much bomb-proof, and that's been my take on it so far - it can handle pretty much whatever you throw at it and it sounds great for pure bass tone but also with effects, like octave pedals, auto-wah, distortion etc.. Also, I bought it because it's lightweight at 47lbs and very easy to move around.. I also like the fact that it's quite a tall cab, so you can hear yourself more easily.. [/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]At the South East Bash last month, Davey Rimmer used one of these to demo some Uriah Heep songs in his workshop and it sounded great paired with a GK800 head and Davey's Warwick. Here's a link to TrevorR's film of it in action:[/size][/size][/font]


[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4][b]Photos, condition.[/b]. [/size][/size][/font]
[font=arial, sans-serif][size=4]Here's link to some photos of the cab: [/size][/font][font=arial, sans-serif][url="https://flic.kr/s/aHsm5kaGee"]https://flic.kr/s/aHsm5kaGee[/url][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]The cab is in good condition as you can see in the photos, but it's been used and as a result, it isn't mint. I'd say a 7.5 out of 10..[/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4][b]Spec, reviews etc[/b][/size][/size][/font]
[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]Full spec can be found here: - [url="http://www.genzbenz.com/?fa=detail&mid=2909&sid=725&cid=96"]http://www.genzbenz....&sid=725&cid=96[/url][/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]Ed 'The Bass Whisperer' Friedland's very good review of the cab is worth a look at:[url="https://youtu.be/5BrLRqcXZ5g"]https://youtu.be/5BrLRqcXZ5g[/url] [url="https://youtu.be/5BrLRqcXZ5g"]https://youtu.be/5BrLRqcXZ5g[/url][/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]And there's some useful discussion (see quote below) on these cabs here on Talkbass: [url="http://www.talkbass./"]h[/url][url="http://www.talkbass.com/threads/genz-benz-nx2-212t.929725/"]http://www.talkbass....x2-212t.929725/[/url][/size][/size][/font]

[i][font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]"..Amazing cabinet. I borrowed it from a good friend for two big gigs. I had the opportunity to use it on a rather large stage with a Streamliner 900. You wouldn't believe the volume and tone this thing has for such a small light box. The next day used the cabinet with an Ampeg SVT 3 head and it was even more amazing. The gig was outdoors with a rock band and volume wasn't an issue. Nice tight bottom end. I use a 1976 P Bass with La Bella Flat Wounds. The cabinet was able to produce a nice vintage tone. I'm also getting older and weight is a big issue for me. At 47 lbs, your back will be thanking you at the end of the night. I have luggage that weighs more than this when I go to Thailand every summer. Definitely going to pick one up soon. They're not cheap but well worth it."[/size][/size][/font][/i]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4][b]Shipping, trades etc[/b]
This is sale only I'm afraid... And as for shipping, o[/size][size=4]bviously, I'd prefer this was collected. having said that, I am happy to courier it if you're too far away to come and collect. But, I won't ship unless you're prepared to pay the additional £10 or so that it usually costs to insure these items up to the right value - it's just not worth the risk.[/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]But if you are reasonably local and would like to come and try it out, then please PM me to arrange.. Tea/Coffee/Biscuits in plentiful supply of course...[/size][/size][/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][size=4]Thanks for looking and [/size][/size][/font][font=arial, sans-serif]If you've any more questions, please ask away here or send me a PM. [/font][font=arial, sans-serif][/font] :)

Had a bit of a rethink on the price of this, so it's now £375 or near offer.

Thanks 😊

Fabulous cabs these, they really do punch you in the chest when you drive them properly.

Cheers Karl! 😊

I agree - when Davey Rimmer was using one at the SE Bash last month it sounded great! Really clear, very punchy..

There's a lot of good gear for sale at the moment on here but, despite that, I've had surprisingly little interest in this cab??

It's only because I'd prefer not to sell a bass, that I'm actually selling this..

Otherwise, I'd keep it because it's so portable, as well as looking and sounding bomb-proof.
