Comments about Genz Benz Contour 500 Series CTR500-115T 500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

This is simply the best bass combo amp I have ever owned. I have been playing for 40 years, and owned combo amps from nearly every reputable manufacturer on the planet. This amp has far and away the best tone (flexible!), great power (add a matching extension cabinet and you're good to go for all but the loudest of bands), good portablility with small footprint (great for those tight stages we all end up on from time to time), solid build quality, and not a hit of a buzz, rattle or hum to be found. Try one and thank me later!

Comments about Genz Benz Contour 500 Series CTR500-115T 500W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

I have used this combo for two years, and am very pleased with its performance and tone. I use it with a variety of basses from Fenders, to a Spector, and even a Rickenbacker, and am quite pleased with it's power and overall tone. I sometimes run directly into it, and sometimes pre-amp with a SansAmp Bass Driver (there is no effect loop on this combo), and get great results either way. I like a very defined tone, but still with plenty of low - end punch, and this amp delivers. I DO have to back off on the input volume a considerable amount when running a hot, active bass like the Spector, but otherwise have no complaints. It is also very lightweight for its size, which is a plus for gigging musicians!
