Well, a few weeks ago I bought praisegeetarman's Z-Verb out of the B&S to match my beloved Z-Wreck set. Well, after a few Winter weather delays it showed up today. It looks as good as new. I haven't tried it yet but all looks fine.
Once I try it out I'll snap some picks of the new matching set. I'm sure the verb will be to die for.
I really like mine. Very organic and sounds great with just a taste all the way up to surf city. It can also get "way out there" spacy and I rarely use more than half of its range. Much nicer than the Fender reissue I had previously and no comparison with any pedal I've tried. That silver and wood Z-wreck cosmetic is cool also. Mine is surf green and doesn't match my brunette amps but the color seems to suit the unit. Hope it's everything you are expecting.

I tried the Z-Verb today and it's wonderful. I'm having a little trouble with the foot switch as the unit is crapping out when I use the foot switch. However, I suspect there may be some oxidation in the foot switch jack. I'll try to clean it up and see what happens. I'm sure its nothing serious and I should get that cleared up soon.
However, the reverb is fabulous. It just holds together so well even when set really wet. The neat thing too is that the unit seems to be made in the same year as my Z-Wreck ('V' serial #) and the front wooden panel is a great match for my set (not that it really matters....but I like it!).
Overall, a great set. Now this is a 'Z-Wreck 'combo'

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.
