Curious to get some input on this. Looking for a combo for traditional country (Marty Stuart type tone). How twangy is the cure? I had a z28 and it was too mid focused for the traditional stuff. Will the cure do the sweet scooped fender princeton tone?

The mids knob really shapes the character of the amp. all the way down is more of a blackface tone and mid way up its more in the tweed vein. I have usually ran a boss dm-2 with light slapback almost as a preamp with my fenders and this amp is warm enough that its really redundant.

They are similar and do share a lot, but they feel different. I think it's mostly because the Z-Lux has a solid state rectifier where the Cure is a tube rectifier. So it's got a stiffer, more immediate feel to it than the Cure. I guess what I'm trying to say is that the Z-Lux feels like a bigger, ballsier amp, even at half power. Part of that is the cab size too. The Cure has great tone and versatility. It's never let me down on the gig. And I have to add that I love both amps! I wouldn't want to sell either of them.

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.

Joey Beverages: hayesgary307 try a Z 210 or Z 410 with Galaxie ... also, yes the G1265 is most tasty and excellent

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!
