Man o man, where is the feedback? I can't let this go unanswered as I see you've also posted the question in the Galaxie folder. I've not owned a Maz GT but have owned a Galaxie. I did play the GT at Z Fest at considerable volume. I loved it and would like to own one. Comparison... I'll try but keep in mind I've not owned a GT.
The Galaxie has a nice complex tweedy midrange breakup on channel 1 that kicks a$$ on 12:00 and above. Channel 2 comes on fast and heavy from the git go similar to the Maz GT. The Galaxie is a 6l6 output tube amp with a really sweet output transformer that's very similar to the old Fender large tweed amps. Channel 2 has great break up and sustain for days, kinda like a tweed deluxe on steriods with huge bottom and better high end definition even when it's distorting like a tortured demon. It's a great amp...
The Maz GT runs el84 output tubes but to me it can sound similar to a set of el34 tubes cranked. The cleans are nice and can be accomplished via the guitar volume control. It's more marshall than tweed sounding meets Z tone. It's got a great output transformer that I believe OT is similar to the Stangray's and the Stangray is a very toneful amp. (I'm using one now)
If you've not made a decision yet I recommend either. :-) But it you're looking for a great tweed (with the Z touch) tone with channel switching (you can gig without an OD pedal if necessary) the Gal is great. If your looking for a really loud fire breathing amp the GT is a good choice.
Hope this helps.

It really depends on the kind of overdrive you want. I personally like the OD on the Mazerati GTalot. It screams and sounds killer. The Galaxie sounds pretty cool too, but the volume on the overdrive channel is just to hard to tame. Its either too soft to hear or loud as freak in your face. But if your able to turn it up some, it sounds pretty nice.

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.
