I have a new model maz 18 nr model. I usually run the master from 3 to wide open and volume around 11 to 12 0'clock. In a quiet room the amp really has alot of hum. I can set my maz 38 beside it with identical settings and it is not nearly as loud. I was just wondering if this is normal for the 18 or if I have something going on. Thanks for any advice.

Not normal. If your output tubes are not matched very well, you can get a lot of hum. There are a number of other possibilities. For example, if you turn the master down, and the hum goes away, that would indicate it's NOT a power tube. Turn all your knobs while listening - do any of them affect the hum? Also, pull the PI tube and turn the amp on. Is it still humming? These tests help isolate where the hum is coming from, which points to different approaches to rectifying the issue.
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.
