Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 600W Class D head
Coventry, West Midlands

Recommended Posts

Selling my used Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 600W head.

Bought in 2011 as part of my Shuttle combo from Bass Direct, and as I’m sure many of you know, it’s a great little versatile amp.

Only selling as I bought a Shuttle 6.2 recently and the 6.0 hasn’t been used since.

It’s in excellent condition. I had the preamp re-valved a couple of years ago, and it’s always been kept in a case / cover (not included with sale). Done a good couple of hundred gigs with this, but the only marks are a few minor chips (less than 1mm) on the front edge, and a few screw scuffs where the thumbscrews from the combo cradle have marked it. I’ve tried to capture these on the photos attached.

Local pick up from Coventry, or I’ll ship at buyers cost in the box my 6.2 came in (identical size chassis).

Features include:

• Power: 375W/8 ohms; 600W/4 ohms
• Analog 12AX7 Tube Preamp
• Digital SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supply)
• High Current Class D Amplifier
• Active EQ w/Parametric Mids
• 3-Band Signal Shape Circuit (Footswitchable)
• Signal Mute Switch (Footswitchable)
• Tuner Out
• Extended Range Input Gain for Active/Passive Sensitivity

• Limiter Circuit
• LED Status Indicators
• Speakon® Speaker Outputs
• Internal Fan Cooling
• Full XLR Direct Out Interface
• Aux. Input
• Headphone Jack
• Effects Loop

I've been running a couple since they first came out ten years ago.  One of them was second hand and the power caps went futz on me one time as I turned it on.  Luckily though I discovered the power amp module was a OEM made by B&O and available separately through ebay.  Ninety quid and two weeks later it arrived and the connections were simple enough to install the power module myself.  Three years later and we're still going strong.  Their lack of mid scoop and a growly bass make them very much part of my sound.

Please confirm if this is still for sale?

Hi Dave, apologies for not getting back to you, but I’d not seen any activity on this thread.

If you’re still interested it is available.

      Hello fellow bassists
      Here reluctantly up for sale is my GB streamliner 900, an amp that has been an absolute work horse for me up until the beginning of lock down when I bought a new Fender amp promptly before losing every prospect of gigging for a number of months. I REALLY want to keep it however I need money for Christmas!
      This works impeccably still with a phenomenal tone which you can get a tremendous amount of tubeyness from, what with it being driven by a tube preamp.
      When I stopped using it a few months ago the blue backlight was very intermittent and chose to be on during some rehearsals, and off during others. It's cosmetic only, however please note that they don't always work, as seen in the pictures I took!
      Please note that this is collection only, from Derby (centre of the country, at least!). PayPal or cash accepted.

       Seems I may have overpriced the cab a bit, so will take £600
      Both with covers, both decent condition, a few scratches on each and one small break in the tolex on the bottom of the cab, but all working perfectly. 
      Great little lightweight rig, have gigged it in plenty of medium rooms with no trouble. Just about light enough that I’ve trollied it on the tube to a few gigs.
      Can’t really justify having two bass amps at the moment, hence the sale. 

      Would rather sell together and will chuck in a decent speakon cable and kettle lead. Otherwise £250 for the head and £375 for the cab.
