Submitted on the 30th October by Nathan who purchased a Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2 amplifier and  Bergantino CN212 cabinet plus Auralex Gramma

My main purpose of visiting bass direct was to purchase a bass amp and cab which would fit in my car. I had already done my research (with a few phone calls to Bass Direct) and decided what I wanted depending on the sound of the amp and Cab and that it would fit in my car. I brought along my own basses to try. Plugged it in; sounded great. I also tried another amp which didn't sound as natural to me. Once I was happy with the sound, we checked to make sure it would fit car. How many other shops would let you do that?

I also use the Genz Benz Shuttle 9.2 with a Vox Cab, it gets the sound of the bass, compared to my old trace elliot (1990) which had a great sound, but made everything sound the same. One word of caution, an early gig on a racked stage, the amp started vibrating off the cab, so you may need to purchase a non-slip mat for a few quid. I'd be interested to see if Bergantino bring out a lightweight 4x10, that would be killer (if it fits in my boot).

I had read many comments about the Auralex GRAMMA claiming it was the best £45 or so they had spent. Even in the shop a customer told me the same thing. All I can say is, my bass sound is very consistent from gig to gig now, where I would sometimes have a boomy sound caused by a hollow stage. My only regret, is that I didn't purchase a gig bag for it. It comes in a box with a handle but the cardboard has recently decided to split and the handle no longer works.

Thanks for you help.

Hi Mark

Just a quick line to let you know the new Genz Benz rig and Sandberg bass got their first outing on Saturday night and sounded amazing.  Also managed to load & unload without assistance for the first time ever!

Thanks for all your help

Hi Mark

Just thought it was about time I got back to you and said how much I am enjoying playing the Dingwall bass through the Genz Benz and Bergantino's I bought from you earlier this year. I've played inside, outside, small and large gigs and they just perform brilliantly. Been playing bass for 50 years now and I can honestly say its the best set up I've ever had. Thanks.

dear mark


With reference to the Dingwall ABZ6 string bass, I took it to a gig at Leicester last week with Roger Pugh and Alan Sansome, playing it through a GB Shuttle 9 and a couple of Vanderkley 112MNTs. I probably don’t need to say much really, the sound engineer was complimentary about the sound right from the sound check and the odd muzo – who recognised the fanned frets- actually came up to the stage to simply emphasise the ‘ph’ in phat!!


all in all, the sound was clear and solid for fingerstyle with a bite that sliced through the mix when slapping. despite this being an absolutely passive bass the slap tones are actually a lot better than some of the active ones I have played, including some I tested at bass direct, which, despite my (previous) love for active electronics, esp. bartolini’s, sounded rather over-produced.


6 strings, a beautifully crafted bass producing incredible tone from just 3 knobs (I was churning out some thundering low A’s as well via the hipshot), an absolutely fantastic lightweight amp and cab combo- why should anyone want a bass with half a dozen controls?? I actually have some corns from playing it regularly at home, and again, to echo others’ comments the fan frets have not been much of a problem at all, and even with my shorter arms and fingers, I found passages along the upper register and the 6th string quite easy!!


this is now my standard rig for my rock/ avant-folk gigs, and will be certainly so on the jazz gigs where I don’t need my fretless!!


to echo the muzo’s comments, a ‘handsome beast’ that sounds as good as it looks!!


warm regards

Hi Mark,


Just a quick thank you again for your help with sorting out my bass and amp.

I’ve been playing with the genz benz head and through them speakers just sounds awesome.


My Warwick (now restrung) sounds amazing. As does the Fender. Its so easy to tweak the sound and get it right. I am already playing better as I can concentrate on the music and not the horrid sound.


I can’t wait till the weekend where I get to go out and play it.


Kind Regards
