Would love a Maz 8, but all the Maz's have a little too much sparkle, character if you will, for me. Its the EL84's, I have a DC30 clone that I feel the same about.
My EZG is too powerful and even though I use a Hotplate I still can't get it up to that sweet spot without deafening people.
So Doc, how about a single ended EZG at about 10 watts or so with maybe a KT-88 or similar for a big full warm tone with just a little bit of bite? I'd go for the head but I bet a 1x12 would be very popular. FX loop like the Maz 8 would be a real bonus.
had a jam last night with my maz 38 and a dr.z air brake...it was in a garage at 9:00 last night...we had to keep it down too, I had no problems at all...the tone was sweet! Can't see where you are coming from? I was using a fender custom shop 52 relic HB with a hand wired ts808 tubescreamer...the tone was far from sparkley and chimey...very tube like...I had natural overdrive going that was thick and warm....and i used the tubescreamer to boost the front end for solos and all...I can do the same with my EZG 50 as well but its harder to carry a head and cab around for just jamming. here are my setting on the maz 38 to get that warm tone... guitar plugged into HI input VOL 10:30 TREB 11:00 MID 12 BASS AT FULL MASTER 12:00 CUT 1:00 REVERB OFF
TUBE SCREAMER LEVEL 8, TONE 3, OVERDRIVE HALF WAY
IT WAS A SMOKING TONE! Got lots of compliments as well on the tone i had going....very "jeff beckish tone| happening last night...

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!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

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.
