Considering a used early 90s production (so stated) Dr. Z Maz 18 NR head...how does one of that era compare to current production? Are they the same design? Any worthwhile improvements to the current production models?
Appreciate any thoughts...thanks for your time! Bryan
Ditto what billyguitar said. I know the Maz 38 was out first (before the 18) and supposedly the 18 was origionally intended to be a lower power version. As it turned out more to his liking, I believe the 38 ended up being rethought in newer production to emulate the newer 18. I also remember reading that Fat Sound Guitars suggested the Doc build a barer bones model without the reverb to drop the price point a bit and hence the NR was born. I don't know any of the dates in the evolution process but what has me curious is if the NR was conceived in the early 90's

From the doc himself:
Here's a little bit of info for you guys. I started to serialize amps in 1990. I used the letter A to signify 1990, so A - XXXX would be an amp built in 1990. P - XXXXX would be an amp built in 2005.
So the way I figure it, the letter O would be 2004
Steve's right - O indicates 2004. I own a 1993 Dr. Z and the serial # starts with D. Mind you, the serial # is handwritten, and I suppose it would be possible to think the handwritten D looks like an O...

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."

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

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.
