    So I am looking for a new amp, and the Genzler Magellan and the bass array 12-3 cans have caught my attention. Have watched a lot of videos but curious if anyone has used them. Have to drive about an hour even to try them, which sucks lol.

    Not familiar with the Genzler stuff. Genz Benz used to be good so I reckon this is too.
    But... Sam Ash has some of the Phil Jones Bass amps and cabs it seems. Did you ever look at those?

    No I haven’t Marco, although I have heard of them. I will check into them, there’s a Sam Ash nearby. I have always heard that Genz was solid. I did watch Sean’s video which was cool.

    I have a PJB 2x5" 100w combo and it amazingly (but barely - in all honesty) held its own in the rehearsal room next to a drumkit.
    Pretty wicked stuff. I don't know how it compares with Genzler pricewise

    I came across Genzler looking for documentation for my Genz-Benz which I like.

    I was told that one of the guys from that company formed Genzler after they split up.

    I echo Hardy’s sentiment that they’re probably good amps.

    Have you considered one of the TC Electronic RH series and their cabs?

    Hey Ecto, thanks for the reply but I took the leap about a month ago and got a Genzler rig. Loving it.

    The Magellan 800 and Two of the ba12-3 cabs. There are pics in the show is your amps thread. Jeff is the owner and he spoke to me extensively about the amps and helped facilitate the buy. Great guy

    That’s good to know. My 6.0T has served me well and I like the lightweight neodymium speaker in the 1 x 12 cab.

    If I decide to augment my rig I’ll definitely consider them.
