I just purchased a z verb for my z wreck and am just wondering if there is any way to have your verb sitting on top of your wreck, in the paisley vid he clearly has his sitting on top of the wreck, but when i do it theres a brutal hum until you move it off, is there anyway around this?
Thanx i tried the cords and what not,and it goes away when i move it but i would like to be able to keep it stacked on top of it but cant seem to find anything that works besides moving it off of the wreck head.
I have read the posts about Z-Verbs and hum when placed on top of an amp. I have one on top of my Stangray head and one on top of my Soldano Hot Rod 25 head and no hum from either.......maybe I am just lucky??? The Soldano is a very high gain amp......I better stop writing before I jinx myself I am using George L cables also.

rub it in why dontcha lol jks,there has to be a way to get it to stop, i found if i put my zwreck on top of the verb the hum goes away but it looks stupid and its not very sturdy,but when i put the verb on top of the wreck theres a brutal hum? i wouldn't have payed the extra 300 dollars for the matching verb for the wreck if i knew it was just going to have put it on the floor and not be able to stack it. Any other ideas?
I talk to DR Z when I first received mine as the hum was unbearable. I too assumed that if it worked in the reviews it should work for me. The response was the transformers in both are large and if the are too close it is usually unavoidable. That also explains why no hum when on some of the other amps. Still looks great with matching front beside the cab!

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.
