Good stuff, solid, cheap, reliable. (GB 115B)

By dwen-d, 07/11/2014
I had just time for a friend had told me to sell it. In addition to a combo that sent markbass cmd 121p severe (too much for my use).

SOUNDS

This is a 15 'without tweeter so it sends bad ... and bad! Rather accurate and able to withstand a high volume, warm, I was satisfied on some gigs I've done with it.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it a few weeks and I tested a lot of stuff in recent years. For me it is a very good value for money. Solid, reliable, good sound, cheap used. Bulky but not too heavy to lug around. The kind of mess that I could buy if the need is felt one day.

Concentrate power and quality! (Shuttle 3.0-10T)

By Emmanuel Delahaye, 24/04/2014
Separable amp head (Shuttle 3.0) transistor Class D (180W into 8 ohms, 300W into 4 ohms). And it is not junk Watts ...

1 jack to mute the instrument (and its red light!) Output jack for standard HP and Speakon for extra HP.

1 output jack for the tuner
1 output XLR male (integrated DI) with switches:
- Line level / mic
- Pre / post EQ
- Ground loop

An input / output (2 jacks) to insert an effect (or effects chain ...)
1 auxiliary input (useful for sharing the receiver using a mixer ...)
1 TRS headphone output.

No built-in effects, but a 3-band EQ (parametric medium) and preset curves ...

Adjustable input level
Adjustable output level

All knobs are rotary and notched.

HP tilt.

UTILIZATION

Simple configuration. Do not hesitate to fumble a bit at first. The doc is well made and still present in my tablet (PDF). I like having the block in front ...

This gives a very good sound quickly and easily!

SOUNDS

I used to trad (Irish) and Balkanik (its dry and powerful). Perfect in both cases for me. Its very pure, very precise, very rhythmic (normal for a low ...) Tried with different bass (electro-acoustic solidbody 4, 5 string fretless). Each time, my bass is the sound that goes well, and dream of having the same ... Also perfect for bass.

Incredible power delivered by this little combo that weighs only 8 kg (class D amp ...). Perfect for repeated, of course, but also on stage (a second chamber would be welcome to have big sound).

OVERALL OPINION

Use for 4 years. This is my first and only bass amp and I am very very happy. I chose it mainly for weight and small footprint and I discovered its qualities by now! For once, I was lucky (but I was very well advised by the people of Bass Center in Paris).

Apart from its outstanding sound quality, I was very pleasantly surprised by the clever design of connectivity, including integrated DI and auxiliary input (I plug in two other instruments over again). Perfect also for instruments like guitar, bouzouki, the tambura, violin and even keyboards, because the bandwidth is complete.

I not only do the selection, but I highly recommend bassists 'soft' (jazz, lounge ...). No question of rock or metal, of course ... (but why there are larger models with Genz Benz)
