I’ve only recently come back to Dr. Z amps after (too) many sojourns elsewhere... it came down to the new Maz 18 mk2, or the z plus. Anyway... Last week I bought a new Z plus. Studio cab, Z speaker. I’ve always loved single-ended amps for their touch sensitivity but they were never loud enough for me, and there was never enough bottom end. Enter the Z:) While it’s a bright amp, it’s so alive sounding, and so dynamic. I can’t believe the amount of drive available! I’ll now be selling 2 pedals as they’ve been rendered useless;) The only thing I wish it had was a little more clean headroom, but every time I play it I come to love the cleans-with-hair that it has. Really wonderful amp. I’ve settled ( for now) on keeping both volumes almost maxed, and bass/treble/mid/cut at 12 o’clock. Using the guitar volume I’m able to get just about everything I need. My main guitar these days is a Novo Serus T, and the combination of guitar, amp, and a little delay into the loop is the whole setup. Simple. The Maz was fantastic, but I really believe I’ve done the right thing. You’ve all helped, and I’m grateful... 😊

Yup. Set up like that it will do almost anything, except super clean. But even that sounds pretty good. Have you tried it into a 412 yet? Pretty cool...
This is quickly becoming the greatest amp I’ve owned, for my taste. Want more bottom? Add a cabinet. Killer. There’s nothing I can’t do with it. Delay, boost, is all it needs for me. It cleans up so well, and that alone is all the versatility I could ever need. So good. That is all;)
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!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

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!
