We performed at a new, for us, place last night. First time that I've used the JAZ indoors at a gig. It sounded great as expected. One thing I especially liked was that I didn't need a Brake Lite to keep the volume at a very reasonable level. (The amp was set for a clean sound. Pedals used for dirt.)
Tomorrow is our annual appearance at a fall festival in the open air. The sponsors provide a sound guy, so I'll probably just push the Master up a bit to get a little more oomph.
It's a mystery to me why this amp wasn't a bigger seller for Dr Z. It may have seemed a little expensive at the time, I suppose.

Gear piled high. Talent? Must be hidden in there somewhere.
Very cool, Mike. Glad you were digging the JAZ. Such a cool amp! (I am a tremolo junkie - lol! )
My (perhaps wrong) theory on the JAZ is that some folks thought is was a jazz amp meant for clean only. It took a long time for the guitar-playing public to catch on that Z amps weren't just for country players!
How great it would be, in addition to all of the wonderful things you're already known for, to have a reputation as a good person. But how overshadowing of all your talents will a bad reputation be! Therefore, choose your words wisely and seek to be kind.
I like the oval front cabinet. My converted combo cab is now the speaker cab for my JAZ head so both of them have the oval grill. People have commented that it looks cool and unique. It really stands out on stage midst all those other rectangular boxes.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

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!

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.
