#1 rule with any Dr. Z amp--don't be afraid to turn ANY knob either way up or way down, including totally "off." There's nowhere really within these EQ knobs that you "shouldn't be." I often look away from the amp once my hand is on an EQ knob, because I don't want my eyes to tell me where that knob should or shouldn't be pointing.
Own or have owned: M12, Carmen Ghia, Rx JS, MAZ 18 Jr NR, Monza, Z-28, Route 66, Therapy, DB4, Remedy, Prescription, EZG-50, SRZ-65 LE, & Delta 88 Z-Drive | Brake Lite SA & Air Brake
Finally got to drop this amp off at Slemmons'.. I've got to say, that is one cool dude. He's going to hook the boost back up and then hook the other jack of the effects loop up to the expand switch so I could have another quasi-boost-lead type thing going. I think that will be pretty cool.
If any of you all in the DFW area ever need something minor done, this guy seems to know his stuff. I'll report back when I get the amp in a few weeks, but he's seen some cool stuff come through his shop!
So, got the amp back. Clean bill of health. Apparently the guy who had the effects loop put in also compensated for the boost by trying to modify the circuit with extra gain... Along with a bunch of other extraneous stuff in an attempt to get the effects loop to be usable, which it wasn't. Now it's back to stock! And I had him use that extra jack for the Expand, so I can foot switch that as well. He was super impressed with the amp. This guy has seen Milkmans, Dumbles, etc. run through his shop and he still really liked this thing, so props to the Doc! Too bad I need to downsize now =(
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

The Bad Poodle: This may be a truism... when you work in a corporate structure, the worst decisions always come from the top.

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!
