I'm new to this forum but acquired a Maz 8 from Peach Guitars in the UK about 7 months ago. Since then I've used it in a variety of settings, including playing in a pit band and at small to medium sized gigs for a wide range of musical styles (rockabilly, blues, african dance/pop, jazz fusion).
The Maz has proved to be an incredibly flexible musical tool that has performed superbly in every situation. I went for the Celestion H30 speaker option which for me has worked very well (it's noticeable that the amp cuts through the mix very well without drowning out others). In one or two larger gigs I could have done with a bit more clean headroom (particularly when the musical style involved required it), but this is more than offset by the advantage of getting natural amp overdrive at reasonable volumes for the smaller gigs I mostly play.
I recently used it for a live recording session which you can see/hear at the following link. The Maz kicks in with its full glory around the 3.50 minute point
Great tones on ALL the instruments ! Really fun to watch happen and such a diverse crowd of players. Maz 8 = Awesome. I never thought of Ebay as my satanic BFF but I am a firm believer in more to come than this world can offer and more then my limited imagination can consider. thanks for the share and welcome to the forum.

Cool vid, thanks for the link. First off, yes the amp did cut nicely, yet balanced. What's the deal with the few people at the tables in the center? Were they judges of some kind? Was this a competition? Bonus points for the hottie on the trumpet.
Good tune, I liked the dynamics and array of musical input of from the different instruments. Nice playing by all too!
Thanks for the welcome and the positive comments - much appreciated.
As an experiment we invited a small audience to the last few hours of the recording session and interestingly the performances were def better with them there. Some of the video was shot by a guy with a camcorder but much of the footage came from assorted iPads and mobile phones we propped up at strategic positions around the room. Everything was then pieced together and synced up with the mixed recording.
And yes, I too was interested to discover eBay was my satanic best friend! Keep meaning to ask Ash, the rapper, about this...

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.
