We played last night at a new place. It's on the smallish side and has hard surfaces, and we didn't want to blast the crowd. Half-power mode on the Z-Plus delivered perfectly since I was able to have the amp Vol and Master turned past noon. Toss in a couple pedals, mix well. There was no sound I wanted for the gig (blues and classic rock) that wasn't available. It was a lot of fun. True, on its own it has an inherent brightness, but it really cut through the mix. (Our other guitarist uses a Marshall combo, probably around 20 watts.)
What a great amp.

Gear piled high. Talent? Must be hidden in there somewhere.
I don't play out. So really haven't had to worry much about volume issues. Only one to decide if it's too loud is me, and I hardly ever argue with myself about that
But sometimes it's cool to just turn it down real low, tilt it back against the wall, sit legs crossed in front of it and mess around. The low power setting really works great for that. It really sounds nice clean at super low volumes. It's turning into my fav Z to date. Had some fun with "old ugly" today, my white-turned yellow late 80's LP Custom with SD Antiquities. It's turning into my fav Z to date. The Z+ has got the 3 L's, Loads of fun. Loads of tone. Light to carry.
Today I had my door open to my jam room/studio. I was messing around on the Z+ at super low volume and really getting into it. My cat Chester came in and jumped up on the amp while I was playing and that cat is scared of EVERYTHING.
GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
