Well my good friend Myles Rose called me today and suggested I update my notes from DR.Z post, I thought that was a brilliant idea so here goes.
First let me wish you all a healthy and happy 2008.
2007 was a banner year here at Z-amps, with record sales. All the numbers aren't in yet but some slight adjustments in long lead supplies are in order to maximize our efficiency and I'm taking measures to do just that. We will remain 100% US handmade , and proud of it.
2008 is our 20th anniversary year in business, Z-amps started March 7, 1988. We are having badges made to put on all amps build after March and then through out 2008 to honor this accomplishment.
We will have a couple tricks up our sleeves for 2008, but one I can leak is the release of the EZG-50 ( aka Evan ) . I hope to have completed units to show and play at Z-Fest this June.
The EZG-50 will be the Reverb 6L6 amp I have been working on for over a year now. It will have a two knob Reverb control, Dwell for depth of the reverb echo, and Mix for the wet and dry combination of the amount of Reverb. Full EQ with a Pre and Post Volume controls. Initially it will be released as a head only.
There's a little look ahead, I hope it wet your appetites, I'm looking forward to seeing all of you at the 2008 Z-Fest.
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.
