NAMM 2012: Genz Benz Introduce second generation Shuttle

Genz Benz have updated their benchmark Shuttle range

PRESS RELEASE: GENZ BENZ Introduces Second Generation of Popular SHUTTLE 6.2 and SHUTTLE 9.2 Bass Amplifier Series
GENZ BENZ is proud to introduce the new SHUTTLE 6.2 series and SHUTTLE 9.2, the 2nd generation of the acclaimed SHUTTLE series of lightweight, high-output bass amplifiers. The GENZ BENZ SHUTTLE series has been the benchmark in innovation and lightweight bass amplifier design since its introduction in 2008.
The new SHUTTLE 6.2 series and SHUTTLE 9.2, feature enhanced performance and versatility with increased tube gain and the addition of proprietary 3-Dimensional Power Management analogue technology (3DPM).  

The 3DPM adds heft and girth to each individual note, enhances the amplifier’s responsiveness and headroom, and maintains dynamics while delivering an exceptional 3-dimensional feel.  

The result for the SHUTTLE 6.2 series is a 600-watt high-powered tour-class bass guitar amplifier that certainly outperforms its mere 3.75 lbs size, and a 900-watt high powered tour-class bass amplifier for the SHUTTLE 9.2 (that only weighs 4 lbs!).

The 12AX7 tube preamp in each of the SHUTTLE 6.2 series and SHUTTLE 9.2 offers additional gain for added overdrive versatility, an Active EQ section with a parametric mid-range network, and GENZ BENZ’s Global Signal Shaping circuitry.
In addition to the amplifier enhancements, the NEW SHUTTLE 6.2-12T and SHUTTLE 6.2-210T combos now feature newly designed proprietary high-output Neodymium cast frame speakers, which deliver increased output and thicker, responsive tone.

These performance enhancements, and the brand new look of the SHUTTLE 6.2 series still hold true to the lightweight, portable style of the original SHUTTLE models.

The power section of the SHUTTLE 9.2 features patent-pending “Proprietary Heat Abatement Technology” (P.H.A.T.) that keeps the high-powered, compact amplifier running cool under long-term power demands.

The innovative design of the SHUTTLE 9.2 produce most compact, light, and powerful amplifier available, and blends the best of analogue and digital platforms for the ultimate in bass amplification.
