I've seen in MAZ sections where Doc is using better reverb tanks from Antique Electronic Supply (www.tubesandmore.com). I was just curious if anyone new if the same reverb tanks were used in the JAZ as the MAZ. If so, I think I will have to order one to upgrade the JAZ reverb tank.
Not sure when he started putting these in but here is what he is using now for the MAZ amps.
I'm not sure if it's the same as the MAZ. I'm sure an email to DrZ would sort that out. I remember seeing that thread about the new pans in the MAZ, got me thinking too. From the way I understood that thread the new pans arent better so to say than the old pans. But that they stopped making those old pans of the same quality, hence the switch.
If you try it be sure to report your findings. I'm pretty happy with the verb as is, but them pans are fairly inexpensive. Might be worth a try?
I ordered one of these tanks and got it today. When I removed the original JAZ reverb tank it was actually an 8AB3A1B. I did the cardboard and tinfoil thing to cover the bottom of the new tank and installed it. The "tail" of the reverb was noticeably shorter with the new tank. Also it hummed very loud so I double checked I had all the plugs in the correct spots and I did. I put the original tank back in and have the new one packed up and ready to be shipped back. My original one has cardboard over the bottom of it and is not that noisy.
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.
