Hey All, I picked up a used Mazerati a couple months ago. I love it. I spent $999. I think that was a fair price, if it wasn't, well, doesn't matter now. It's very clean and it's right up there with the best I've ever owned. It's got Genalex EL-84 tubes in it. The rectifier tube looks to be an NOS Mullard. I'm running it into a Mesa Boogie cab loaded with a Wharehouse Guitar Speaker Blackhawk (alnico magnet). Anyway, I've included pics. Any thoughts or information on the amp would be appreciated. I don't know a great deal about them. Thanks

I think that's an early version two. I own a version one from '00. My serial number starts with a K. I have owned mine for the better part of a decade. I LOVE mine. I'm sure you'll enjoy yours too. They really are special. My four ohm Z Best cab is from the same year I believe. Grab a Z Best if you can and thank me later. Have fun!
I’m assuming it’s all stock (except the tubes). I’ve not pulled the chassis out yet, probably will sometime when I’m bored. This was on consignment at my local store for a bit...long enough for me to talk myself into buying it. It’s very clean. I love the sound. I’ve read enough of this board to know that many object to the Vox comparisons, but it does have a Vox flavor, at least to my ears. That’s a good thing. The only EL84 amps I’ve ever liked have been Vox. Anyway, it’s a great amp.
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!
