So I go over to GC to see a friend that works there but he isn't working today. I say hello to a few people and check out the used gear section as I always do. My eyes are always looking for the "Z".
Well, I see this amp and it caught my eye, no "Z" but it says prescription ES...holy cow...I had to check it out. I played it and it is soooo loud and very clean sounding...I bargain with them I bit, not much room to play with but I told them if they took care of tax and supply a foot pedal that I would buy it....sure enough, I pulled out my CC and did it. brought it home and introduced him/it to the rest of the Z fam. I have to get me a "Z" Logo for the front. apparently this one fell off. The best part is that wife was ok with it going to organize my area a bit this weekend...just wanted to put the amp up there tonight. By the way, with the volume low and the air brake on "bedroom" level it was still "loud" for bedroom..........I love it

It's a great amp! Is yours a 1X12? What kind of speaker? I have a Scumback greenback-type speaker in mine, and with this speaker, it's really not overly loud. It's just about right for band volume actually -- clean to gain-y at the flick of my volume knob.
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!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

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.

The Bad Poodle: What cures tube SHAKE and tube RATTLE? A tube ROLL?

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.
