Hey fellow Z-fans,
So I was jamming with some fellas yesterday on my Dr Z Remedy. I think I have an earlier model, pre-MV and with the AC outlet on the back (serial T.27035). I was under the impression that this AC outlet was a convenience provided by the Doc to power your pedal board with. So I went ahead and plugged in my Voodoo Labs Pedal Power Plus 2 into it, and was running just two pedals: a EP Booster and a Hall of Fame reverb.
We're jamming, and suddenly I lose signal and the amp goes dead. Well, turns out the pedal power unit was fried (amp was fine). Smelled like fried electronics, and the unit was really hot to the touch.
Is it possible that using the AC out on the back of the Remedy instead of using a wall outlet fried my pedal power unit? Also, out of curiosity, why was the the AC outlet discontinued on the Remedy? FWIW, I was running the Remedy pretty hot (both volumes up to 2-3 o'clock) and using a Brakelite.
In other completely unrelated news, I couldn't be happier with the tone from this thing. Most of my pedals never see the light of day any more. Between the Brakelite, a booster, the occasional reverb and my volume knob, I have all the dynamics, dirt, and compression I could want. Other guys' rigs sound distant and muddy, and my amp is always present and in-your-face. Couldn't be happier.
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: 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!
