For Sale Genz Benz Streamliner 900 - £385 

 I’m Selling my Genz Benz Streamliner 900 ; These are great sounding, powerful, and light weight amps. These are getting hard to come by in this country as they as are now discontinued.  This has never been gigged, and the majority of it's use has been for home recording. 

The amp consists of a pre amp which uses 3 x 12AX7 valves, and a very flexible gain structure which can go from smooth hi-fi sounding to over-driven saturation, going into a very powerful lightweight class D power amp section. The amp has lots of connectivity options (please see photos) and pre or post eq DI options. All this and it only weighs 6.5 lbs. 

I've been using it with a Barefaced Big Baby 2, and it sounds immense!

FEATURES

900 Watts @ 4 ohms; 500 Watts @ 8 ohms  
• SMPS and Class D power amplifier design
• Class A Six-Stage Tube Preamp (3 x 12AX7A Tubes)
• Modified Passive Baxandall EQ for the Lows and Highs

Weight: 6.5lb 
• Size: 3 1/4" x 10" x 11 7/8"

 Sale is because I've got my eye on something expensive and need to generate some funds. I’m based in Shtrewsbury by the way. Collection welcome, but can also courier at buyers expense. Any questions please let me know.

Please look out for other for sale posts as I'm also selling a Phil Jones Bass Double Four, Squier VM ’77 Jazz Bass, Barefaced gen 3 Big Baby 2, and a Stagg EUB with lots of accessories.

Thanks for looking!

Had the 600 and it was a great amp. Wish i had kept it. Used it with my Berg HT322 and it was full and rich sounding. Lightweight and very versatile amp. Just bought a Mesa Mpulse or i would have had this.

I've had almost every decent bass amp going, and settled on this one. Hard to beat for that vintage valve tone, swap out the preamp valves and they sound even better.

If I didn't already have two, I'd snap this up!

Yeah definitely. I've currently got a military spec Mullard in the first slot, and an RFT and JJ in the other two*.

 

*original valves/tubes will be put back in when sold (I may have a couple of spares I can chuck in too!).

What did you put in and what effect did it have? I have the 600 watt version.

The real mccoy, beware of cheap imitations! 

Full of valve/tube lovelyness, powerful (900 watts), light, compact, and still available!

      I've always heard Jazz bass bridges are terrible, my friend changed his to a Badass bridge  a few years back and that seems to be very common if I'm not mistaken.
      Can anyone explain why?
      I've just bought a MiM 5 string jazz and I'm wondering whether I should considering replacing the bridge.

      FURTHER PRICE DROP TO £230 £220
      Offering up my Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz Bass for sale. These are highly regarded and for good reason: fantastic quality, super-solid and with a beautiful neck. Plays as well as any bass I own or have owned, and with a Gotoh 201 bridge, Di Marzio DP 123 pick-ups and a Kiogon ‘push/pull’ loom will be more than a match for many other modern Jazzes. Knobs swapped out too for a more authentic look. A few small bruises as shown. Selling as it just doesn’t get the playing time it truly deserves and I just seem to be more of a Precision man!  Original pickups also supplied. Collection from near Oxford initially please: questions welcomed!

      Barefaced supertwin £666
      Next to new condition but someone from basschat added a dolly, when I got it delivered the handle was broken but I’ve been too lazy to get a new handle. Cab is 1200 watts and a one arm lift.
       
      Travis Bean £2900
      the holy grail, Tb2000 bass! The missing pickup is ready to ship from Travis Bean Designs so this will be installed early January.
      pickup was being re-wound to original spec with original parts.
       
      10lbs in weight and it’s got a shim under the nut. I will buy a hard case for it to be shipped. 
       
      jason Zdora 1979 preamp with a new 4u rackcase and a Peavey poweramp £500 all in.
      if you are a fan of shellac then this is the best tone ever with added low end, more gain, Di. Footswitch ect. The poweramp can’t be bridged but it never bothered me as it’s loud enough for me.

      For sale is a second hand Brownburst Squier  bullet STRAT  with vintage looking pickguard, pick up covers and knobs. Strings are Ernie Ball 10-46, new barely played. The neck is smooth with decent frets. Back if the neck has some knocks, this doesn't affect the playability. The guitar plays nicely. Action is medium and stays in tune. Tremolo works fine. The body has marks and a few chips. Tuner pegs are locking tuners, these are new £27. Asking price is £70. I can send you a link to how it sounds through a Marshall amp clean, dirty and overdrive unprocessed. I would prefer a local collection to avoid damage by delivery. But posting is possible.
