New York Bass Works proudly welcomes Genzler Amplification!

Jeff Genzler stopped by the showroom to walk us around his amazing products and the rest is history. At NYBW we only consider the finest components available for our basses. If the component doesn't exist we will try to create it ourselves or approach another party to help bring it to fruition.

With that being said, it is of the utmost importance that we are able to hear how all of these components come together to give you the complete NYBW experience. What's the point of trying to put forth the best instrument possible if the tone and effort get lost in the signal chain? Genzler is that amp manufacturer that helps accomplish that for us.

Being able to hear and determine what works and what doesn't, is a crucial part of our mission statement at NYBW. So without further ado!

Genzler Amplification now available at New York Bass Works!

Bass Array 12-3

Price:$879.00

Although the same size as many premium 12” and tweeter cabinets this new design is so much more complex and rewarding to the performer.

This innovative design blends the benefits of a 12” vented bass reflex design with the performance and pattern control of a 4 x 3” neodymium driver line array element. The benefits of combining both design platforms in an extremely compact cabinet are exponential for the player:

  • Full, deep, low frequency response from the high efficiency 12” ported woofer -- doing what it does best. Excellent support of the low B fundamental of 5 string instruments.
  • A selective crossover point overcomes the “beaming” (pattern narrowing) effects of a full range signal being reproduced by larger low frequency drivers.
  • Lowers midrange and high frequency distortion by allowing the use of small, high performance cone transducers that would otherwise be unsuitable without the increased acoustic sensitivity obtained by the array design.
  • This design provides a more open, smoother midrange and high frequency response because of the ideal natural characteristics of the mid-high frequency array when compared to a conventional tweeter that cannot reproduce the crucial midrange frequencies without pattern control or un-natural distortion.

What this means in the context of performance is the most focused, defined, musical, smooth and seamless response possible throughout the BA12-3’s entire full-range bandwidth. Additionally the placement of the Line Array in front of the 12” woofer further provides a type of “single point source” projection---think of it as concentric speakers, one inside of the other, in the same linear plane. Also due to line array principals the all-important mid and high frequencies have a much wider horizontal dispersion with a more controlled vertical pattern. This offers the most even projection possible around the perimeter of the stage and audience.

REDDI

ALL TUBE DIRECT BOX The Finest DI on the Market • Unbelievable Tube Tone The number of A-Designs REDDIs in use on stages and studios all over the world is nothing short of staggering. Quite simply, there just is no better sounding way to convert an instrument or line level signal to XLR. Designed with the help of top studio engineers and bass players, REDDI has been widely praised by engineers and bassists all over the world as the best-sounding DI solution on the market today. It is important to note that the REDDI is not a high-gain device! Its gain structure has been painstakingly engineered to avoid the slightest compromise in sound quality. Inspired by the glorious sound of the Ampeg B-15 tube bass amp, REDDI’s 6N1-P tube-driven amplifier feeds signal directly into a hefty custom output transformer by Cinemag – a key component to providing a harmonically rich tone. REDDI’S extremely wide frequency range (20Hz to 60kHz) prevents in-band phase shift, resulting in outstanding detail and realism.

Another major benefit of its wide bandwidth is the prevention of LF phase shift by maintaining a linear response extending below the audible bass range, insuring a full, natural sound. REDDI’S distinctive bright red steel chassis sports a front-panel Neutrik XLR/1/4” combo input jack, balanced XLR output, and a 1/4” thru-put, for sending signal to a bass amp – not only useful for live applications, but also for simultaneously recording direct and miked amp tracks in the studio. A 0-16dB-Level control and a bright blue LED power indicator complete the front panel controls. On the back panel are heavy-duty toggle switches for power and ground lift, along with the IEC power outlet. The REDDI’s all-tube circuitry will enhance the character of any electrified instrument run through it – not just bass! Plug the pickup of an acoustic guitar through REDDI to add depth and fullness to its tone. Capture and improve all the richness and life of an electric piano or analog synthesizer. Warm up sterile sounding digital keyboards or drum machines by strapping a REDDI across their output – or two, for stereo! The uses are literally endless…

REDDI FEATURES:

• All-tube direct box with custom output transformer.

  • Ultra wide frequency range (20Hz-60kHz)
  • Neutrik input connector, balanced XLR out, and 1/4” thru jack

3Leaf Audio began in 2009 while I was playing bar gigs on weekends and using way too many effects pedals. I modified an old envelope filter to work better with my bass, and after a several dozen more tweaks to the circuit it had taken on a life of its own. I built a few pedals based on that modified circuit and gave them to friends. Over time, word spread. A few years and a few thousand stompboxes later, my creations are helping make music all over the world and are in the hands of artists like Bootsy Collins, Meshell Ndegeocello, Paul Turner, Tim Lefebvre, Sinbad, and many more.

All 3Leaf Audio products are built in my workshop located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Modern construction techniques and precision components are utilized so that every stompbox is built to last. This includes features that can't be found on other boutique effects, like a silent relay-based true bypass system that automatically switches to bypass mode in the event of a power failure. A custom steel enclosure gives each stompbox just the right look and feel.

Each creation is honed through relentless play-testing on actual gigs. Try them and I think you will like what you hear!

Wonderlove

Hands down, the most versatile envelope filter available!

New features for v2:

2nd footswitch toggles between envelope and expression pedal control (Dunlop DVP3 recommended)

All jacks now top-mounted for easier pedalboard mounting.

External toggle for true or buffered bypass selection.

Footprint: 122 x 103 mm

Proton

A modern homage to the classic Mutron III envelope filter

New features for v3:

Tone knob for fine control over the filter sweep.

Increased sensitivity range for better compatibility with low-output instruments.

Phase-correct output for predictable use in blend pedal signal chains.

Footprint: 64 x 118 mm

Octabvre

The Octabvre MKII takes the circuit from the original and adds a toggle switch that selects between the original sound and the popular "Tim tuning" modification to bassist Tim Lefebvre's personal Octabvre. Simply pronounced "octave," it is a dual mode analog octaver that adds a harmonically rich sub octave to your instrument.

The Octabvre features a tone knob that alters the character of the sub octave. At one end it replicates the classic tone of the Boss OC-2, and at the other end it captures the gritty sub sound of the Mutron Octave. A second footswitch with a dedicated volume control solos the sub octave for 808-inspired sounds.

The Octabvre utilizes soft-touch relay bypass switching for bulletproof operation and is powered by a standard 9vDC power supply.

Footprint: 122 x 103 mm

Doom

Doom turns the idea of a fuzz pedal on its head. It responds to your playing dynamics to generate vintage synth-inspired sounds. Strong upper octave harmonics add depth without the need of additional stompboxes, although You're Doom will also interact beautifully with the rest of your pedalboard.

Doom works well on all instruments, thanks to its full frequency range output. The shape control switches between a powerful lead sound and a broad mid scoop, while the tone knob works just like a synthesizer's cutoff control to alter the high frequency content.

It is finished in raw hot-rolled steel for a beautifully brutal look and features a soft-touch relay true bypass system that automatically switches to bypass in the event of a power failure. It uses a standard 9v DC center-negative power supply (not included).

Footprint: 64 x 118 mm
