Used the EZG-50 last night with a 4x10 open-back cabinet sporting four Jensen Alnico speakers. Sounded pretty good. Nice sound spectrum spread. It is not a Z cabinet, but a Mesa cabinet I bought back around 1993 or so as an extension cabinet for my Mark IV. I haven't used it much over the years, and decided to break it out and see how the EZG-50 would work with it.
I did an A/B/C trial using 3 different cabinets yesterday afternoon, the Z Convertible 2x10, the 4x10 & a 1x12 ported cab with an EVM12L. I liked all three, but decided to take the 4x10 to see how it would sound live. Nice, big sound. Actually it's the nicest this cabinet has sounded in a long time.
The EZG-50 head seems to work well with all cabinets I've tried. Every cabinet just gives it a different color. The more I use the EZG, the more I like it. Great little amp head. Thanks Doc.
Well only trouble now is that I'll probably end up with a 4X10" as well - damn ;D No, but seriously I really want to try my EZG through my Super Reverb speakers. I do like the 2X10" convertible and the 2X12" though.

I tried my EZG-50 through the Z-Best 2 x 12 (V-30 and a G12H30) when I picked it up from the store. Sounded "fine," but seemed to be missing something I was looking for. I have a Dr Z 4 x 10 on order. In the interim I've been using the 4 x 10 cabinet of my Super Reverb. WOW!! The 4 x 10 is the BOMB with this head. Very cool!

Speaker cable out of the EZG-50 head coupled to the stock speaker cable/wiring harness of the Super Reverb. (coupled with a 1/4" to 1/4", female to female, coupler) I'm running the speaker cable out of the Dr Z EZG-50 on the 4 ohm out. Sounds fine to me for the interim, until the Dr Z 4 x 10 arrives.
second and last tracks show the differences between the 4x10 and Z best, i still love the 4x10, it sounded massive in the room www.soundclick.com/peachguitars
EZG 50 and 4x10 sounds amazing.

I run 2 4x10 cabs under my EZG with a series Y cable to get the load up to 8ohms. I have to say I've played with all kinds of bands on larger stages and clubs and this thing will smoke a 50watt marshall.....no offense to all the marshall users out there. This thing is a clean machine! the z 4x10 cab is probably the best 4x10 cab out there. It's not top or bottom heavy......it punches just as hard as a 1x12 cab and is more focused than a 4x12. These things rock! I have a Route 66 head on the way for the other 4x10. Z's are the best handwired amps out there and it's great that the Doc doesn't charge 3000 for 'em!

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!

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
