I already have a Z-Lux, A Maz 18NR, A Blackface Super Reissue, A Blackface Princeton Reissue, and a Boss Katana 100watt combo. Other than an empty wallet, is there anything that the Z-Plus can give me that I don't already have? I love all my amps and wish I could use them more, but I usually end up using the Princeton mainly because its easy to transport to rehearsals and a lot of the gigs I play are restaurants, small private parties and indoor venues. I usually take the Maz or the Z-lux when I play outdoors or VFW/American Legion type gigs. The Super stays home for obvious reasons. I usually run my amps clean and get my dirt from my pedalboard. I play Country and classic rock and play mostly Teles. I can't seem to get the Blonde with oxblood grill cloth Z-plus out of my mind. Sometimes I will just pull up the picture, enlarge it and just stare at it.....yep, I got an amp crush and need some sound advice. I really don't want to sell any of my other amps and if the Z-Plus won't cover new ground , then I will just be duplicating what I already have.
Z-Lux 1x12, Maz 18NR 1x12 Combo, Z-Plus 1x12 Combo, Super Reverb Reissue, Princeton Reissue, Boss Katana, Teles Galore!

This is me pouring fuel on your gas fire: I don't think any of the amps you own do the same thing as the Z Plus. I think it sounds like the ideal thing for your situation. The only reason I don't have one is because I run my Z-Lux on 40 watts 95% of the time in a loud band. I don't think the Z-Plus would stay loud AND clean. That is my only hesitation. Well, that and I am paying for my daughters wedding this month, which makes me a cashless kind of guy!
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.
