Genzler Upright Double Bass Amps

In our pursuit to offer the best, most appropriate bass amps for upright double bass, we now offer 2 new bass amp manufacturers, Genzler and Phil Jones.  The most important criteria for us in selecting these models and brands is that one, the qualtiy of sound is second to none and that they will enhance the bass' tonal qualities, without sounding 'electric' or hindered by using an amp.  Also, it's important for us to offer brands with a great 'work ethic'.  That is, amps that the player can really trust and rely on day in and day out.

We offer most of what Genzler makes, especially amps that we know sound fantastic on an upright.  You don't have to lug that 50 lb speaker cab any longer to get that big, warm sound that everyone loves.  At the top of the list here is their Megellan 350/BA10-2 combo amp.  With 175 Watts, it has a very rewarding warmth and 'fullness' of sound.

Customer Appreciation Certificates!  As is our long standing tradition here, any product $1,000 or more, qualifies for our String Emporium $50 Bonus Award.  The certificates can be redeemed on any future purchase.  As per the marketing and sales agreements with the manufacturers, these certificates may not be used or applied to any concurrent purchase of a bass amp, cabinet or amp accessory.

We also offer accessories (covers, footswitches and some preamps).
On every amp here, we offer a 7 day trial. Please feel free to read our Bass Amp Trial and Return policy.

Genzler Megellan Combo Bass Amp


We purposely included this photo of a bass guitar leaning on the amp just to show how compact this amazing amp is!  Yet, it will fill any large hall with 175 watts with just one cabinet (as shown).  You can also get a full 350 watts by doubling the cabinent.  One is enough for most all upright bass use.  The combo comes with a nice mounting bracket for the amp head onto the cabinet. Each part head or cabinet can also be ordered separately. 

  • Dimensions: 15.5"W x 15"D x 16"H
  • Weight: 23 lbs
