it has one the Best Master Volume Circuits EVER!!! Just cause your Corvette Speedometer says (160) MPH doesnt mean you have to run it that fast )) My SRZ is The Holy Grail, I dont know what the Diferences are the old and New But my old one sounds nothing like the LE's or RI's? Not aying they are less than or sound bad , its just something about that big ole long style head and the Tone that POURS froim it.!!! I recently did a gi that was a Brand new Venue Grand Opening here in my home town, HUGE stage nice size room, I took my Beloved Stangray, My Trusty 67' all original Super Reverb and the SRZ with My Marshall1x12 semi open back with a Celestion Gold! The SRZ was used and Man It was AMAZING! Its just Rips but will clean up as well! )))))

I had the same concerns as you, but the SRZ-65 actually is more controllable (in my experience) than some of the other Z amps like the KT-45, Remedy and Monza, all of which almost need an Air Brake attenuator at small venues or for recording.
Like muzacman02 stated, the master volume is amazing. The SRZ-65 can get down to bedroom volumes with the master turned way down. Somehow it is still dynamic, touch sensitive and throaty, even at very low volumes. Now I will admit, the louder you take it, the better it sounds. My point is that turning it down doesn't hurt the tone like some master volume circuits...
I got a brand new one a few months back and am loving it!!! You shouldn't hesitate if you find a new or used one b/c of volume and as far as I have heard, the tonal differences between the new and old ones is pretty minimal.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
