An amp with 1200W that's the perfect powerhouse for any occasion.

The ShuttleMAX 12.2 1200W Bass Amp Head is a 1200 watt full featured compact bass amp in a class of its own. The award winning ShuttleMAX dual preamp design offers an FET preamp for articulate, precise, immediate tone and a 12AX7 tube channel that provides a wide range of gain structure that produces smooth, clean tube warmth or can be dialed all the way up to the critical mass of aggressive overdrive.

This STL-MAX12.2 delivers over 1200 watts of output from an amp that weights only 6.75 lb. Dual Class D amp modules produce full output into two 4 ohm loads (one per amplifier output). Our proprietary 3DPM power management circuitry provides increased headroom and a thicker dimension to the individual notes. The full output of the ShuttleMAX 12.2 is perfect for any venue, whether it's the LA Forum or a small backyard party.

The ShuttleMAX 12.2 dual power amp design offers a variety of available power output choices: One 8 ohm load (either Amp A or Amp B driven) at 375 Watts. One 4 ohm load (either Amp A or Amp B driven) at 600 Watts. Two 8 ohm loads (Amp A and Amp B driven) at 750 Watts. One 4 ohm load (Amp A) and one 8 ohm load (Amp B) at 975 Watts. Two 4 ohm loads (Amp A and Amp B driven) at 1200 Watts.

    Comments about Genz Benz ShuttleMAX 12.2 1200W Bass Amp Head:

    Last year the 6.75 lbs Shuttlemax 12.2 replaced my 80 lbs. rack of pro gear and I haven't looked back! I play everything from country to metal to disco and the flexibility of the FET and Tube channel always brings what I need. Rarely do I play a gig without having other musicians come up and complement the tone of the bass. With the two internal power amps the 12.2 is capable running two or more cabs with different ohm loads Example; you can run a 4ohm on amp A and one or two 8ohm cabs off of amp B. f you don't need to run less than a 4ohm load the 900watt Shuttlemax 9.2 is a great alternative. If you need versatility, light weight and run multiple cabs this is the amp for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
