I rebuilt my pedal board last week and finally got around to running it with my Therapy.
I have all first rate pedals and top shelf cables so I was curious if I would hear much difference when plugged in thru the pedal board.
Guitar to amp sounds best but I was pleasantly surprised with how good the amp sounded. I do not feel running pedals in front of this amp is a penalty as it still sounded great.
The amp sounded great with my dirt boxes (dirty little secret and black lung) I did not care for the way my ts9 based fat penguin sounded though (grainy to my ears).
Switching over to my echo and delay I have no issues. Break up on the amp sounded great and there no loss in clarity with these pedals engaged.
This amp is so thick and full sounding that I have not felt the need for any reverb, at all. In fact, I pulled my M9 off my board and left my Holy Grail on the shelf.
Boost is great! Sends the amp overdrive thru the roof in a glorious way!
What have you all tried?
Red NOVA 1x12 #006 EMS Head Mazeratti 30th Anni Therapy #005 Carmen Ghia 1x10 Combo Monza 1x10 Combo Z Lux Prototype 1x12 In the house but not mine (Mini Z and Delta 88 B) (3) Parker Nite Flys OMS MIM Telecaster Dr Z Combo used as a 2x12 www.greatcables.com cables never fail sitting the box, they only fail when you need them, don't buy poor quality, they will let you down
I've tried running straight in, which is great, but I'm such a pedal buff I like the Therapy even better with pedals. Everything from the Wampler Velvet Fuzz to the Barber Gain Changer--they all sound great. Thinking about acquiring a good verb pedal--sold my Flint when I got the EZG.
Z-Lux combo: red/ZW Cure Friedman Mini Dirty Shirley and matching cab
A dozen other Z amps/cabs I've sold or traded. I may have a problem--but I'm an excellent customer.
