SRZ-65 and either a Ghia or a Maz Jr....probably the Jr. Those three would give the broadest amount of sounds.

Let me put it this way: Come to think of it, I CAN have any three Z amps. And I have the Stingray, the RXES, and the SRZ-65. And at this particular moment, I'm not really jonesing for anything else. Maybe later, but... well.... yeah, a Ghia would be nice, as would a 1x12 Stang Ray combo too...
You only get three because I'm limiting myself to three. :-) I'm ingoring some debt that I could be paying off but I'm cutting myself off at 3. After that, I get my financial ducks in a row. (Well, after that and probably one more guitar) :-)

Stingray (got one), EZG-40 (gonna get one), and last either a MAZ38(had one), or a Z28 (would love to have one). My MAZ 38 was very cool and versatile, but I LOVE the Doc's EF-86 amps!

OK, here's my story. Within the last year and a half, I've purchased 5 Z amps. I know I know, kind of excessive. But, IF I could only pick three, here goes: 1) StangRay 2) MAZ Jr. NR 3) Probably the RxES that I have on order right now. I did get to test this amp before buying it, and I was blown away. That's why I'm putting it in my top 3. I have played some of the other Z amps using the bigger tubes, but there's just something magical about his EL84 amps. Even though they use the same output tubes, they all sound unique in their own special way. These are the tones that I've had in my head for a long time and never quite been able to get there. That is until I was introduced to Dr. Z amps.
I am currently trying to decide which might be my first Z, but hey, I can play this game too!
RxES. Wow. Simply wow. Mazerati GT. Can I put a deposit down on one now? Mini Cooper. No, really. Why is there not an 8-10W Z? Or better still, a 5-8W? *Everyone* needs an amp like that. I would buy one yesterday.

There might be two Delta 88s out there, based on a skim of the dealerships this morning, on the loose assumption that their web pages reflect actual in-stock items. If I couldn't find a Delta 88, I might go for an RX-ES, because I've wanted one for over two years.
Remedy and SRZ-LE heads. Z-Best, 210 convertible, and an Airbrake. Several guitars.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!
Jul 10, 2020 7:40:17 GMT -7
The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.
Jul 10, 2020 12:56:49 GMT -7
GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.

GuitarZ: After finally training myself after 4 days to not bother trying to turn on the guest bathroom light because of the power outage, I just found myself bracing for the sound of the generator as I opened the garage door and it's now quiet. Power Back!

GuitarZ: Oh Man! My drummer built his own studio back about 25 years ago. I still remember lugging that drywall down to the basement. He did drywall, insulation, drywall. So, there was a lot of drywall!
