The tone chart / settings document, which is available via the link in my signature below, is for the MAZ 18 specifically, but it can be a guide to the other MAZ amps, with adjustment.
I do have a MAZ 8 studio combo. Like zpilot, I tend to have bass set higher on the 8 than the 18. Another difference that affects the similarity or lack thereof between my MAZ siblings is that the 18 is a 2x10 (Z 10s) and the 8 has a 12" Cel Blue. Very different to my ears.
Gear piled high. Talent? Must be hidden in there somewhere.

I regularly go back and forth between the two and usually run bass a little higher on the 8 as well. The main difference, however, is how I set my pedals... the 8 has less headroom so if your pedals boost bass too much, especially with the amp's bass open already, they're going to push it further into saturation than they would the 18. So I just cut the bass on my pedals...

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!
