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
• Active Tube Driven Mid EQ
• Selectable 3-Position Mid Frequencies: 220, 600, 2.5K HZ
• Input Mute
• Hi-Gain switch
• Master Volume
• 3DPM™ Power Management 
• Patent Pending P.H.A.T topology
• Full Direct Output Interface
• Effects Loop
• Headphone Input
• Aux. Input
• Dual Speakon Outputs
• Variable Voltage 
• Variable Speed Fan Cooling 
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!

      Very Reluctantly nd hesitantly, I'm looking at selling my retro 610.
      Serial no. 013, it's in fantastic condition and is by far the best sounding cab I've ever owned. 
      Best things about it are:
      - vintage tone and volume
      - big cab that I've always been able to move myself
      - fits in the small boot of a skoda fabia
      It's well looked after and a month or so ago was back at barefaced hq to have. Black grille. Whilst there they cemented down the tolex and gave it all a once over, so it really is in top condition. 
      Comes with a silver grille cloth if you want to change it, and a cover which is a bit worn, but has plenty of miles in it. 
      I won't post this, collect or meet only. Wellingborough, Bedford, stevenage areas of the country typically. 
      Happy to try and answer any questions. Thanks

      PRICE OF £950 WAS FOR TWO CABS - ONE NOW SOLD - BIG BABY T STILL AVAILABLE £450
      I have amended this ad since placing it a couple of days ago. I have sold a Gen 3 Big Baby and thought my other cab was a Gen 2 Big Baby, but apparently it's a BB T  GEN 2 which is a different spec. This was an honest error on my part as I bought it on here used about five years ago and didn't know the difference. 
      The £950 price tag which will have raised your eyebrows and may even have led you to read this ad to see what was so special about it, was in fact for the two cabs. I can't figure how to change the price in the price field in the post?
      THE PRICE FOR THIS BIG BABY T IS £450.
      So I am now relisting with an accurate technical spec from Barefaced in the link below and photos of the Big Baby T:
      https://barefacedbass.com/product-range/big-baby.htm
      I thought it best to amend the ad as I didn't want to mislead anybody else
      Cab is in good nick, works perfectly, all feet present, corner plates, original handle (which had a rubber sleeve which was prone to disintegration) replaced. No trades thanks as it has been replaced with a Super Midget.
      I live in Romiley which is near Stockport, which in turn is near Manchester if you still haven't heard of it! I'd be willing to drive up to 80 miles or so to deliver/meet up, again for some sort of adjustment in the price. I'm sure something can be worked out.
      Any questions at all just fire away?

      This looks interesting. The Classic Vibe range has a great reputation so hopefully that will carry over into the new Mustang. At that price it's very tempting

      No dings, handle is secure, feet are solid. Padded cover by Hotcovers included.
      Collection from South London SE24.
      Sale only, no trades!
