Just did first rehearsal with the JAZ. Definitely one of the best I have ever played. Smoothest and easiest to play Dr Z I've tried (I own a Zwreck and Z28 and have owned Stangray, RXES, Maz 18, Maz 38 and Remedy).
Sounds like a fat Deluxe reverb. Much more of a mid scoop than the Z28 to my ears.
Hard to believe this amp was discontinued.
I'll post some sounds clips later on...
Here it is with the others (the red looks kind of cool)
The JAZ is probably one of the most under-rated Z amps.
I think of it as a F Deluxe Reverb in 20-watt mode and a F Pro Reverb in 40-watt mode. My go-to amp for oldies/rock 'n' roll gigs, but not limited to that style of music.
That is a really good analogy. I used to rehearse with a DR and then gig with a Pro or Vibrolux. Now I do both with my JAZ and just switch power. As you would expect from a 'Z' though, it has a little more meat to the tone than either of those amps.
It seems to me -- I'm biased I admit -- that the JAZs are gradually ending up in the hands of folks who really appreciate them.
It's been said many times before, but I just can't understand why this amp was not more popular. Ten minutes in front of it and I was in awe. It does everything I could ever want out of a 6V6 amp. I truly do appreciate this amp. Perhaps more than any other amp I have ever plugged into.

roscoenyc: Almost every piece of gear I have except for my tuner has at least one knob. Those are for adjusting. PSA for the "too much bass" crowd.

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.
