brought my maz gt (in a studio slips clamshell, fit perfectly in the overhead bin on flights), specified a 300-watt voltage transformer. had no problems whatsover. head sounded really good, no matter what cabinet i plugged it into. when the band got to london, we jettisoned the rental backline (drums, bass rig, two guitar cabs) and took loan of a hiwatt backline. killer bass tone (200 bass head, 4-10/1-15 cab). had to dial in the other guitarist's tone (they loaned us two of the new 100-watt hi gain heads), with master up high, gain down low, channel volume up high. definitely sounded different than what i've heard from hiwatt heads, but good. i'd have to tweak more to fully define an opinion. the high gain 100-watt head i plugged into had some problem, it was *very* quiet regardless of volume on the amp. probably a bad tube, but zero time to soundcheck, so out comes the trusty maz gt, and no more problems. the volume (i usually ran the tone around 11 o'clock, volume around 1 o'clock) of the amp was never too hot, and the soundmen we ran across all liked it. a guy in germany was especially enthusiastic about my "Doktorr Zed".
i have a new gig, after a seriously nutpunching tour; we've all decided to concentrate on anything but the band right now. i am officially a guitar tech. doing some fly-in dates this month for a band out of LA, my main gig starts in november with a nice buncha guys from boston. we'll see if i can't convince my guy to try the gt.

I bought my Rx Jr at the Rock Shop (?) in Nashville last month and did not want to ship it back to California. I called the airlines (Southwest) to verify their restrictions on carry-on items and they said no problem. It fit perfect in the overhead so I graciously rapped it in one of their blankets and used two of their pillows to wedge between the sides, and in 5 hours I was checkin' the tones out at home.
Great amps, nice guitars, and a small tonal spice rack.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
