Had my maz 8 with a blue since October. After playing it almost exclusively in triode mode, my playing situation has changed and I’m thinking of switching to pentode. I’m looking for a bit tighter and firmer feel. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
The cool thing about the Maz 8 is, there are great tones available with a wide variety of knob settings.
A couple days ago I read a post about running the cut up and treble down. So, for the last few days my settings have been : Single coils, high input, pentode mode, V 10:00, T 9:00, M 11:00, B 10:00, R 8:30, C 4:00, MV 10:00, BL on 1. Amp sounds great.
Pentode should give a tighter feel even with a blue. That's just opinion though. My Maz 8 came with a Creamback. I rarely run my bass knob above 12:00.
That is about where my Bass is set. It is at 11:30. I never had it much past 9:00 on my MAZ 18 or my MAZ 38. I set it where the control was just starting to have some effect, similar to the way I set the Bass on a BF/SF Fender. The MAZ 8 just seems to need more from that control. Other forum members have commented the same thing.
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

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!
