been gasing for a Dr Z Amp for some time now. There are 2 Amps from the product line that really fit my taste: the EZG 50 and the Remedy. Unfortunately the Z Amps are quite a bit more cost-intensive here in Germany than in the Staates (Shipping, customs ect.). So i have been lurking in the 2nd hand market waiting for a Remedy or EZG 50 to pop up.
These specific models are rarely seen in the 2nd hand market over here, it seems nobody wants to part with them But last week a EZG 50 Head in blonde showed up, even very reasonable priced. I pulled the trigger an it arrived yesterday. I put it on my 2x12 cab, whose speakers would be a better fit for a Remedy (Eminence GB12), but i was none the less very impressed. Sure, full Honeymoon phase, but i am quite positve that this amp won´t leave my house anytime in the future.
I am in the market for 2 EV EVM12L speakers right now, would like to try them with the EZG 50.
"All that is left" is to aquire a Remedy and i got all my bases covered.
Thanks guys. I really enjoy the amp right now. It´s perfect with a Strat, but also very nice with my MIJ LP Junior (very snappy). The amp works well with the P90. Yesterday i bought 2 EVM12L Black Label out of ebay. Hopefully they will arrive before Chrismas...looking forward to them.
little update. The EVM 12L were an update (tonally) to the Eminence GB12, but i was still looking further. Long story short: i bought a Marshall Cab from the 80th, with 4x10 speakers. In this box were 3 WGS G10C and one WGS ET10. I replaced the ET10 and one G10C with two WGS G10A and put the speakers in a X pattern.
I can say i prefer the 4x10 box very much over the 2x12 box, which will be up for sale soon. It is more articulate and less bass heavy/muffled.
The Marshall box is a closed back. In the near future i will build a new back plate (open back). I can imagine that will further improve the box tonally.

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!

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.
