Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 600W Class D head
£275
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.

      So I am pondering on maybe getting myself a proper bass amp here coming the 1st of November, next month, since I am currently just using the poweramp section of my 160W Peavey Solo Special 112 guitar combo, with the build in 12" guitar speaker unit disconnected and the amp instead hooked up with a 4Ohm, 400W, SWR Triad I bass cab with 1x15 + 1x10" + tweeter horn, and even if I actually really like that tone that gives me I just absolutely love the classic Trace Elliot tone, once having owned a 1x15" 130W GP7SM combo that I was very very fond of, and kind of regret selling.
       
      So the question is, should I get the extremely tiny and light weight, relatively new, 200W Trace Elliot ELF amp head, which I will buy from brand new, or get the used, relatively old, and quite heavy, 300W GP7SM amp head, that is currently for sale for just about the same price as I can get a new ELF?
       
      I would appreciate arguments for and against, beside the obvious advantages the ELF got size and weight wise, making it extremely easy to transport, unlike the old GP7SM head, that I know will be quite heavy.
      Like would there be any obvious noticeable difference in the tone they respectively produce when set flat and not using the pre-shape of the GP7SM head (which I will definitely not be using anyway, hate mid scooped tones).
      What would you chose and why?
      And what would I lose getting one over the other, beside the obvious warranty, ease of transportation, less EQ tweaking options, lack of pre-shape functions (which, as said, I won't have any use for anyway), and 100W less power, of the ELF?
       
      Or should I rather, since I am actually quite satisfied with the tone I get now from the Peavey, which also got plenty of enough power for my use, forget about the temptation of getting a Trace Elliot amp in my possession again, and instead use my money on some new effect pedals that I also have cravings for?

      One of the best Class D heads on the market... 800w of pure clean power.
      The head is in very good condition and comes with the official Genzler case and high quality speaker cable. The case has a minor tear but still works fine and keeps the amp secure. 
      Only selling as I'm switching to IEM and Preamp pedal for live shows.
      Price includes postage to UK mainland.
      No trades
      Thanks

      Great amp in excellent condition for only £300. Incredibly powerful, rich and punchy sound that is in total contrast to its size and weight.  Works really well with my TKS cabs (also for sale separately) for a powerful, lightweight rig. 
      Mainly used for rehearsals and practice at home (the footswitch is still in its bag unused!).  
      Discussed extensively here:

      Any questions please ask. Collection from near Guildford preferred, but can post if needed.   
      Thanks
