few SWR and Genz-Benz users here.
I remember buying my first SWR amp and feeling proud as punch.
Then the pain of realizing at Band practice it was only half the volume of the previous rig :P

That's the way the big boys play,buy the competition,then simply shut them down.I have a feeling Sunn met the same fate.
My Shuttle 9 has been a great amp and done loads of work,been just as impressed with the Uber cab ..... well that was until Harley showed up with 2 BFM cabs.

Genz-benz being axed would be a massive, epic failure.

One of the few brands that seem to really be connecting with modern bassplayers.
