I recently bought a Route 66 and a Z Best cab. (unfortunatly the cab wasn't available in the matching colour, waiting for the black one) What an amp! It certainly delivers everything you would expect and more! The only thing about it was the rectifier tube (EH 5u4) which had a rattle, so I replaced it with a Russian NOS coke bottle. Also took out the stock EF86 and changed it for a Philips EF86 Miniwatt. Glorious!! Big cleans, silent, no noise and the overdrive.... So big and filled with harmonic overtones... Awesome!!!

Welcome and congratulations on a nice rig. I had the same for a while, until I traded the 66 for the antidote. The Rt 66 is a special amp. Enjoy the amp. Enjoy the people and info here.
Did the same, then a Mini, MAZ 8, and now a Remedy. All good, just different. Changed to suit the band/playing I was doing. At this time I'd say I like the Remedy best, but I wouldn't mind having them all. Miss each one... ME
I don't get the opportunity to play at volumes that would allow me to appreciate the Docs loud amps. My Remedy stays on 20, I sold my 1st Z, a Maz 38, but I do love the demos and/or hearing a Z cranked up. Welcome to the forum and enjoy your tone monster!!
Great amps, nice guitars, and a small tonal spice rack.
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.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

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!
