I played my first wedding with my new Z-28 1/10. The Celestion Gold and amp held their own w the rest of the band which included the singer's classic 30 thru the PA direct (it sounds as bad you think it does) drums and bass. We had a gentleman sit in at one point and needed an extra cable so I ran direct into the amp and gave him my other for the acoustic DI. Even then everything sounded great. I played two tunes on my Strat that way then switched to my Les Paul for the third. It's so nice to have a portable tone cannon again. One trip load in and one trip out.

My biggest regret is breaking up my Z28 1x10 combo, and then selling the Z28 head.........after all the Z amps I've been through, I still rate the Z28 1x10 (with Blue Pup Ceramic) as my favourite one Maybe one day........

Digs- it's quite horrid but kindly mentioning it leads to "it's ok if the PA is crunchy" which I disagree with but I'm being paid by that noisemaker so I **** up and play. I'm not a fan of that. #soundslikeCrap
Sean- I haven't had that much fun thru an amp in a while. The audible chew and chunk of the '28 was great to hear. I wish I had brought my tiltback stand so I could've heard more of it. I'm sure the folks there heard it well despite the stage railing in front.
I really like the any of the Z amps I have owned in the 1x10 combos. Its really a great set up, very punchy and the 10's have more bass response than you would think. I also think that in a band setting the 10" speakers really cut through very nicely.
nice report out! Todd

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.
