Some years ago I was told, warned EZG50's dynamics is just too overwhelming, too vast to handle or at least very challenging. Do you recognize any truth in this? If I had a chance to check it out personally I wouldn't ask. I've had Z-Lux for an year or so but think now I'd like to go back to the 6L6 world. EZG might be one option. Besides dynamics I'd like to know, is it as rewarding to play it in low volumes as it is with Z-LUx - no probs at all. I'd appreciate any points good to know coming from Z-Lux zone maybe to EZG50 world.
I never gigged mine, but in practice I didn't find the dynamics to be an issue. If anything, they made it feel more lively and SRV-like. That said, overall I found I preferred the tone and feel of the Z-Lux, and ended up letting the EZG go in a trade.
Z-Lux combo: red/ZW Cure Friedman Mini Dirty Shirley and matching cab
A dozen other Z amps/cabs I've sold or traded. I may have a problem--but I'm an excellent customer.
Thank you all, guys! Precious info. How'd you compare the way EZG take OD pedals compared to ZLUx? I guess there's something tweedy in Z-Lux's own gain structure that I don't like. In my own rig it's clearly to be heard when I play my 335 with P90s through Bogner Blue Ecstasy.
To put it clearly, what's the difference in the tone & gain structure of your go to OD pedal when you change from Z-LUx to EZG??
Is the over all tonal structure, sound, stouter in EZG, the trebles too??
The dynamics are incredible on the EZG-50 why would that ever be a bad thing? :-) As for pedals, I've recently changed. I used to run my EZG super clean than have pedals for different stages: slight OD (Marshall Bluesbreaker V1) Then my Slighty fuzzy tweed style sounds via a Catalinbread Formula 5. But now i'm running my amp a little bit hotter and don't really need the blues breaker pedal… the Catalinbread still sounds incredible in it - cleans up well and I can control the break up by my playing. This amp takes pedals so well.

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.
