Product details

The circuitry and mechanical designs within the KINETIX 800 deliver an all-new platform in tube preamp, compact bass amplification design – exactly what players have come to expect from the GENZLER® design team.  From natural, pristine, quick responsive reproduction of the bass instrument to classic, vintage harmonic textures with “weighted feel to the notes”, the KINETIX™ 800 provides the tonal pallet needed to cover all of the bassist’s amplifier requirements. It is a simple to use, very musical amplifier, and is what a high-voltage tube preamp brings to the player’s dynamic interaction with their instrument through a world class bass amplifier.

The KINETIX 800 preamp offers 3 – 12AX7 preamp tubes running at a full 300 volts, offering the character, touch sensitivity and harmonic content of classic tube, bass amplification.  Other features include a ¼” unbalanced instrument INPUT jack; 3-position toggle switch for MUTE, ON and BOOST functions; preamp GAIN and VOLUME controls; 3-position tonal foundation switch for LEAN, FAT and THICK settings; 5-band, fixed equalization filters and a MASTER volume control.  The power amp is a robust, lightweight, Class D design and is supported by a state-of-the-art, high frequency, switch-mode power supply (SMPS), which does away with the weight of a traditional power transformer.  The KINETIX 800 utilizes a proprietary high-voltage power supply for the all tube preamp.  This uses a rear panel Line Voltage Selector switch for proper setting of the correct line voltage range for the specific country of use. This allows the world traveling musician to always have the correct tube voltage for optimum performance.


PREAMP – Six Stage, Class A, Tube Preamp (3 x 12AX7 running @ 300V Plate Voltage).

  • INPUT– Feeds directly to the first tube stage and has a 1Meg ohm input impedance
  • MUTE / ON / BOOST SWITCH — Boost adds 8dB of gain in the 2nd tube stage.
  • LEAN / FAT / THICK SWITCH – Sets the tonal foundation of the tube preamp, adjusting the HPF and response curves, along with how a tube amp reacts to various cabinet signatures.
  • TUBE DRIVEN EQ NETWORK – Five band all tube driven EQ section
    • BASS —  +/- 13dB boost/cut shelving curve with a corner frequency of 70 Hz
    • LO-Mid —  +/- 10dB boost/cut at 250 Hz
    • MID —  +6/-11dB cut at 575 Hz.
    • HI MID —  +/- 11dB boost/cut at 2.3 KHz
    • TREBLE —  + / – 16dB Boost/cut shelving curve with a corner frequency of 5KHz


POWER AMP – The KINETIX™ 800 uses a state of the art, class D power amplifier design and a high frequency auto-sensing universal switch-mode power supply (SMPS) to achieve unprecedented high performance and lightweight packaging. The Voltage Selector Switch changes the high-voltage power supply for the preamp tubes.
