I know and understand Doc’s business decision regarding black only on amp cabs (heads and combos).
Wonder if that also holds for speaker cabs. Seems there is less variation in design so that minimum quantities might be less of an issue. But I obviously don’t know all the issues involved.
I’m curious because I’m thinking of getting a 1x12 to go with my ZPlus (red with ZW cloth) and a 2x10 for the Z28 (red with tan cloth). If no new ones will be coming from Mecca (Maple Heights) then I’ll just have to keep watching reverb and eBay.
I never was interested in red before. Now I'm craving red.
I always want that which I can't have.
I couldn't resist and did end up buying a closeout blonde EZG-50 head shell with a black oval front and blonde 4x10. I just wanted to at least have them put away for when I could swing buying a head. I was planning on buy-in a new EZG-50 then I fell into a used head I couldn't pass up.
I don't see why they can't put any color the customer requests on custom orders. I realize they have a "budget thing" about doing colors now but it should not apply to custom orders.
If I remember correctly, the doc had to order enough tolex for 30 cabs at a time. If he only has an order for one, he now has enough for 29 more that he has paid for gathering dust.
I may be wrong, but I understood he ordered the cabs already with tolex applied. If that's the case theoretically at any given time he could be sitting with 120 cabinets (black, red, blond, surf green). That's a lot of space and money tied up in inventory. Furthermore predicting the fickle musicians taste at any given time must be a challenge. (I worked in the MI business as a rep for a while). At the moment I'd like to find someone to trade my blond Therapy cab for a red one.

You could always get a custom Mather cab done in just about any color you want--they'll make 'em to match Zs grill cloth and everything. But yeah--it's too bad about the red Zs especially. Red is a statement. Black is meh.
Z-Lux combo: red/ZW Cure Friedman Mini Dirty Shirley and matching cab
A dozen other Z amps/cabs I've sold or traded. I may have a problem--but I'm an excellent customer.

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.
