Genzler Amplification Announces Magellan 800 Bass Amp

Genzler Amplification Magellan 800 - Front

After launching its initial product line earlier this year, Genzler Amplification has unveiled their first amp. The Magellan 800 is an 800-watt that features clean and drive channels for gig versatility.

The front of the amp has Mute and Pad switches with separate volume controls for each channel. Its 3-band EQ includes a parametric mid control, and larger sculpting can be had via the dual-curve variable contour circuitry. Curve A covers classic to modern sounds with a mid-scoop while Curve B is thicker to vintage with a low-mid bump and tapered top end.

Back features include an impedance selector, a headphones output, an effects loop, a footswitch output, and an XLR direct output with ground lift, pre/post EQ, and mic/line level switches. The Magellan 800 is housed in a brushed all aluminum anodized chassis. Its fitted with a thermal sensing variable speed cooling fan and weighs 6.25 pounds.

The Genzler Amplification Magellan 800 is open for pre-order and will be available in January 2016 with a street price of $759.
