We recently moved across country and I had CME ship my new Z-Plus to the new address, so it was there when I arrived. Haven't played it, but at home. I was recently asked to join a band at church for the Sunday services. (That's a whole other thread). So I'm prepping for the first rehearsal knowing that most of the tunes are calling for acoustic guitar, maybe one tune for electric.
I'm dialing in the Z-Plus for the acoustic guitar ( Doc has a great demo of it with acoustic). I use a K&K Trinity system on a Martin 000-28. Out of the corner of my eye I notice the bypass switch sitting there. It is set just slightly above unity as a general rule. What the heck, I give it a gentle tap and there it was; the full rich sound of that Martin in all its glory beautifully exposed. It sounded good withe tone stack, but in bypass...oh my!
Through the the years I have tried a variety of so-called acoustic guitar amps. They all were either ignored, sold or returned because they have not been able to produce an acceptable amplified acoustic sound. The Z-Plus nailed it in spades. I thought my 04 Maz18 did a nice job, but the Z-Plus is IT. BTW my Z-Plus is using the Z-12, a great speaker. Z-Plus in bypass for acoustic is GREAT. Thanks Doc for a superbly versatile amp.
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.
