The waiting is difficult, even just with pedals. I’m waiting on a couple now... Let us know what you think when you’ve had a chance to compare the two amps. Cheers!
Z-Lux Combo in Black, Z-Lux Head/1x12 Z Cab in Red, Cure, Maz 8 Head/1x12 Z Cab In Black, another Maz 8 head/1x12 cab in blond, blond Z-Verb, Red Z-Verb, Maz 18 NR MKII in Black, Therapy blonde, Red Monza, Air Brake, and few more now, but who is counting? Past: Monza 1x10 in Red, Mini Head in Red, Maz 18 Head in Black (Baby come back...)
Before I start a new trouble-shooting thread, you may have a simple solution to my problem...
Have received my Z-Plus a few days ago. Looks really great in Studio Black / Tan (my new favorite finish), but I have a problem with the reverb, which is VERY noisy. I mean unusable noisy. Past 9 o'clock on the knob, I have whistling, creaks, radio noises and tons of hiss. At max, it's absolutely unbearable.
I've tried a few obvious things on my own, with no solution: - Unplug every electrical devices in the house while testing the amp (wifi, tv, phones, lights...) - Try different outlets - Change v3 tube for a fresh JJ ECC81
For info, I have absolutely zero problem with my Z-Lux plugged in the very same outlet, even with reverb knob crancked. Hadn't any issue with my Maz 8 either.
When I turn the reverb completely off on the Z-Plus (knob on zero – no footswitch for the reverb on this model), the amp is quiet (and I assume it sounds great, even if this problem didn't let me enjoy the sounds I get).
I'm off tomorrow. The plan was to have a full day toying with my two Z. As things turn, it would be more finding a solution to my problem or sending the amp back to the shop.
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!

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!
