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.

But the Squier 40th Anniversary Stratocaster genuinely seems to embody much about where Squier has been and the reliable source for quality, affordable, and, yes, beautiful guitars they have become.

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love.
