*** NOW SOLD - Thanks for looking! ***

Hi Folks

A recent bass purchase means I'm trying to balance the books and, as a result, I now have this Genz Benz NX2 212-T Neo 600 watts 4 ohm Cab + Roqsolid cover for sale at £SOLD or near offer, plus p&p.

Reason for selling etc..
I bought this in August 2015 from Hamfist and then sold it to chimike 3 months later when I went down a valve amp route and bought an Ampeg rig. Less than 6 months ago, I bought it back from Mike so I would have a lightweight cab in my kit bag. However, I'm just not gigging enough these days and whenever I do, it's with my Ampeg rig. So, in short, this is something that's not being used and if I can sell it here, then I won't have t sell my Schecter Diamond P5 bass that's currently for sale, which I think I'd rather keep..

Sound
This is very subjective obviously, but IMHO it's a fantastic sounding cab that sounds great with my solid state Hughes & Kettner Bassbase 600 head, my Ampeg V4BH valve head and also with the Eden WT-400 head that I've just sold to geoff90guitar.

One of the reasons I bought it originally was because I heard it was pretty much bomb-proof, and that's been my take on it so far - it can handle pretty much whatever you throw at it and it sounds great for pure bass tone but also with effects, like octave pedals, auto-wah, distortion etc.. Also, I bought it because it's lightweight at 47lbs and very easy to move around.. I also like the fact that it's quite a tall cab, so you can hear yourself more easily..

At the South East Bash last month, Davey Rimmer used one of these to demo some Uriah Heep songs in his workshop and it sounded great paired with a GK800 head and Davey's Warwick. Here's a link to TrevorR's film of it in action:

Photos, condition..
Here's link to some photos of the cab: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm5kaGee

The cab is in good condition as you can see in the photos, but it's been used and as a result, it isn't mint. I'd say a 7.5 out of 10..

Spec, reviews etc
Full spec can be found here: - http://www.genzbenz....&sid=725&cid=96

Ed 'The Bass Whisperer' Friedland's very good review of the cab is worth a look at:https://youtu.be/5BrLRqcXZ5g https://youtu.be/5BrLRqcXZ5g

And there's some useful discussion (see quote below) on these cabs here on Talkbass: hhttp://www.talkbass....x2-212t.929725/

"..Amazing cabinet. I borrowed it from a good friend for two big gigs. I had the opportunity to use it on a rather large stage with a Streamliner 900. You wouldn't believe the volume and tone this thing has for such a small light box. The next day used the cabinet with an Ampeg SVT 3 head and it was even more amazing. The gig was outdoors with a rock band and volume wasn't an issue. Nice tight bottom end. I use a 1976 P Bass with La Bella Flat Wounds. The cabinet was able to produce a nice vintage tone. I'm also getting older and weight is a big issue for me. At 47 lbs, your back will be thanking you at the end of the night. I have luggage that weighs more than this when I go to Thailand every summer. Definitely going to pick one up soon. They're not cheap but well worth it."

Shipping, trades etc
This is sale only I'm afraid... And as for shipping, o
bviously, I'd prefer this was collected. having said that, I am happy to courier it if you're too far away to come and collect. But, I won't ship unless you're prepared to pay the additional £10 or so that it usually costs to insure these items up to the right value - it's just not worth the risk.


But if you are reasonably local and would like to come and try it out, then please PM me to arrange.. Tea/Coffee/Biscuits in plentiful supply of course...

Thanks for looking and If you've any more questions, please ask away here or send me a PM. :)

Nik

Had a bit of a rethink on the price of this, so it's now 375 or near offer.

Thanks 😊

Cheers Karl! 😊

I agree - when Davey Rimmer was using one at the SE Bash last month it sounded great! Really clear, very punchy..

There's a lot of good gear for sale at the moment on here but, despite that, I've had surprisingly little interest in this cab??

It's only because I'd prefer not to sell a bass, that I'm actually selling this..

Otherwise, I'd keep it because it's so portable, as well as looking and sounding bomb-proof.

Moved one of these on and replaced it with a Berg CN212. I often wonder why.
Great cab here. GLWS.
