The Next Generation in Classic Tone Lightweight Cabinets



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, infused with Ferro-fluid for extended power and smooth response.

This 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 more traditional Ferrite/Ceramic woofer and tweeter cabs offer a variety of tonal performance characteristics for every type of player–from smooth jazz, classic rock, heavy metal and all points in between.  The NU CLASSIC series delivers warm response, from modern transparent clarity, smooth midrange character to classic growl.

The NC-212T is largest cab in the line, a vertical 2 x 12″ model delivering big low frequency, full-body response with a modern, yet classic style packed into this 44 lb package.  The vertical design helps to keep the dispersion of the cabinet “off the floor” and providing a taller projection pattern.

SKU: NC-212T Categories: ,


The NC-212T is a compact, vertical cabinet design, and produces exceptional depth and clarity for its size and weight.  This traditional 2 x 12″ woofer and tweeter design offers controlled, deep and big low frequency roundness and easily handles the depth and extension of the low B fundamentals of a 5 string bass instrument.  The mids of the dual 12″ drivers offers classic smooth and throaty character and blends nicely with the top-end “gliss” of the compression tweeter.  This is a great rig for medium to big stages, and will easily match the power and performance of our MAGELLAN 800 bass amplifier.

    This NC-212T is AMAZING. It is the best cab. I have ever used. The punch and definition of your attack are well defined and transparent. I use mine with the Genzler Magellan 800 head and it’s a match made in heaven. I play in a band with two loud guitar players and a heavy handed drummer and the NC-212T cuts right through like butter. I use a Musicman Bongo 6 string bass and the low B is supper tight with this cab. The mids and highs are perfectly balanced and focused. I have been playing bass for 45 yrs in 16 different bands and this is by far the best bass rig I have ever owned. I have played on many bands albums in the past and I can’t wait to record with this rig. The ease of being light and portable make is so easy to put in the car and go to the show. You just can’t go wrong with any of the Genzler products!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve been playing Genzler cabs for a while now and while my main rig is a BA 15-3 SLT + BA 210-3, I just had to try out the NC-212T when it was introduced this past summer and what can I say? This is a beast of a cabinet. It’s deep, punchy, and huge. I mostly play 5 string in a country band and this is the perfect complement for my tone when paired with my Magellan 800 head. It’s articulate across the entire range and yet has this beauitfully classic look and sound to it that just makes me smile. If you were to compare it to the bass array cabs, the NC-212T would be a classic musle car like a Boss 429 Mustang whereas the Bass Array is the equivalent of a modern day Corvette. They’re both beautiful in their own right with the NC-212T harkening back to a time of heavy iron and huge cabinets but at a weight and build quiality of modern standards. A formidable combination and one you should have at your disposal.
