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...

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.

roscoenyc: Whenever I see the phrase "clean pedal platform" I'm filled with sadness about the real tube amp joy that could have been.
