I'm really loving the Zplus. I'm using mine mostly in the full power setting and can get so many great tones out of it. I never thought there would be an amp that could possibly put my beloved JAZ on the back burner, but this little guy has. I'm a Les Paul guy, I plug straight in. I can get some absolutely astonishing dirty blues tones out if it, and just about anything else from classic rock and more. I have the studio combo and have a WGS G12C. Love the combination.
The only pedal it needs comes in the box.
Such a great amp. I've been a Z fan for quite some time for no other reason than the amps sound great and are simple. Out of the dozen or so I've bought, loved, and enjoyed, two stick out as extremely impressive. This is one of them. The half power mode is very useful.
If anyone is on the fence about this one... just do it. It's great.
There's always more speakers to try. For whatever reason Celestion speakers have fallen out of favor for me in open backs. Not sure if my ears are changing or what. I just haven't had much luck with any of them. Alnico included. We all hear things differently, but personally I've been liking American voiced speakers lately.
In any event, the Zplus has such a wide range of tone it's easy to just sit there and go into totally different styles with just the switchable boost. Truley a grab and go.
If I miss anything it's just not what I would call a super high headroom amp, with my cave man hands and a Les Paul sometimes i want more cleans. But that feeling subsides when i get lost in the dirty tones. I hate to use the "D" word. But it has that thick, gainy yet clear attributes that really sound great. I love it. The Surgical Steel inbound should cover my cleans, or blow my head clean off. One or the other.
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.
