Howdy Pardners, I'm proud to say I finally snapped up a Studio Lead Head with Verb and FX Loop! YES! I had a Z epiphany about 4 or 5 years ago when I first plugged into a MAZ invasion combo, and thought, "this is IT, man, this is the amp for ME!" But no... I had to try every other amp under the friggin sun first, thinking I was saving money, getting more versatility, etc, blah... So, the time is now, and I am wondering what the background is on this model, and what advice folks may have concerning the FX loop send and return settings, and the pull Treble pot (what's it do?) and any other stuff related. Thanks alot, T Money (aka - Starving For A Friggin Gig In Durango) Peace!

Congrats on the amp, Tmoney, and welcome to the Z family! That's a killer amp you've got. My best advice concerning a used amp would be to budget some $$ for new power tubes. The Studio Lead head was the precursor to today's MAZ 38 Senior. I hate giving out incorrect info, but I believe the pull knob was an "expand" switch that affects the midrange. Is that Tjstrat's old Studio Lead that you bought? He just had one up on Ebay last week. Maybe he could chime in. If that is his old amp you won't need to retube it right away.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
