Back in May I was lucky enough to buy Therapy #001 from benttop. I played it for a couple of weeks, rolling V-1 tubes and trying different cabs and speakers through different guitars, then I moved on to my other amps. I have a system of rotating through my amps and guitars so that everything gets played pretty equally. Well, it's now January and I finally circled back around to the Therapy this AM and realized (again) what a wonderful amp this is. Played some of my jazz standards and it sounded great but the real eye opener was Over the Hills and Far Away with the following setup:
Therapy w 5751 in V-1 => Master 2:00, B\M\T straight up, Vol 10:00 => Flint for a touch of verb and trem => 2x12 cab with Gold and C-Rex => 97 Nocaster in middle position. Except for my playing, this was as good as it gets for me tone-wise. I just had to post and include a bad cell phone picture. Still not sure if the Therapy will ever replace the Z-28 as my favorite Z, but this AM certainly closed the gap a bit.

I had my therapy dialed up almost exactly opposite of you this afternoon for some Alice In Chains! It’s a great amp for sure.

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!

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!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
