Absolutely killer amp! I had a Maz38 that I never bonded with that I was able to trade for this beauty. It's a 1999 2x12 combo.
This amp has a cooling fan installed: Was this done by Z when the amp was made? Or did a previous owner (apparently it went through a few hands) install it? It's very noisy... and I definitely can't record with that thing going. Can I uninstall it? Or does it need the fan to keep cool?
What exactly does the expand switch do? I read a few people saying that when you flip it up it gets a lot more Voxy. But some further insight would be great!
The guy who sold it to me told me it was 50+ watts... Though all the info I can find says it's actually 45 watts. Is that true?
Anyways... Any info on this amp would be welcome! Thanks

It probably is an original factory fan - I've got them in a Bluesman and a Super Z from around that time. It's probably ok to unplug the fan (they are a little noisy) as long as you're not going to be pushing it hard for a prolonged time. However, if you're gonna be cranking it for a couple hours - all bets are off. leave it plugged in.

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.
