Genzler Amplification Announces the Nu Classic Series

Genzler

Genzler Amplification is proud to announce the addition of the Nu Classic series of compact, lightweight bass cabinets, delivering classic tone and warm full-spectrum response.


Along with our "boutique" modern take on classic/vintage cabinet styling, these 3 new models feature advanced lightweight construction, compact vertical designs, and "specially-designed" Ferrite/Ceramic magnet low frequency driver formats and our compression tweeter.

The combination of component selection, ported cabinet design and construction techniques combine to deliver the sought-after performance and feel of Ferrite/Ceramic loudspeakers in a lightweight cabinet "weight class" --- normally associated with Neodymium speaker cabinets. We accomplish this utilizing our "tried and true" manufacturing principles, well-braced 12mm lite plywood construction, internal triangular truss-style side-to-back bracing, internal acoustic dampening, shelf-port designs with "softened" leading edges to deliver strong, powerful, low frequency support with less turbulence.

These are affordable "gateway" product offerings for the Genzler Amplification brand. These traditional woofer and tweeter platforms offer a variety of tonal performance for every type of player. The Nu Classic series delivers smooth, warm response from modern transparent clarity to classic growl.Three models are ideal on their own or in stackable combinations.

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Mdou Moctar has led his Tuareg crew around the world, but their hometown performances in Agadez, Niger, last year were their most treasured.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
