“The Genzler Magellan 800 and Bass Array 210-3 are a literal doubler’s dream. It gives my electric basses a rich, punchy tone while also to maintaining the natural, woody characteristics of my upright. Not even to mention how LOUD and LIGHT it is! Jeff Genzler and his team have really hit a home run with these rigs!” -Alex Browne
