Got my new EZG-50 today. Black with tan grillcloth. Looks like Z did away with the oval front panel, which is okay by me. I'll be using it with a convertible 1x12 with tan cloth so it'll match (which everyone knows is very important to the sound.) I'm going to start with a Weber Chicago speaker as those are my favorite speakers in my '71 Twin. I'll be playing at bedroom volumes until Friday when we gig, then LOOK OUT!!! I'm pretty excited!
My review? Holy crap this thing is LOUD! I had the pre and post at about 9:00 and was still too loud. I'll try it with an Air Brake for the next gig. If I like it I'll buy a Brake Lite and mount it in the head cab (if it fits)
I do like the amp and the clean, tight lows. Just everything in general that I like about 6L6 and Fender amps really. I also think the 50w Weber 12F150 is a great speaker for this amp in the 1x12 convertible cab (open back).
Two weeks until the next gig but I should have it figured out more by then.
Very cool, unique look Doobie. Ive had Wonderful success with the Air Brake. I just leave the Pre & Post at about 2:00 (1:00 when tubes get really warm) and adjust Air Brake for room. This allows me to keep the amp right on the 'edge' of starting to break up at any volume... No longer using any distortion pedals...LOVE IT!

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.
