Has anyone installed a cut control on their Ghia? Is there a Dr Z approved schematic for this?
If there is an amp that screams to be LEFT ALONE as designed it is the Carmen Ghia.
A cut control? Maybe you are talking a Ghia head running through an array of JBL 075 ring radiators?
Seriously .... you don't want to put anything else in the signal path of these amps or change a thing. I'd love to know why the tone filter that is so great on these amps would leave you wanting for a cut control as the range of the magic tone circuit in these amps is about as good as it gets.

Actually I'm using a cab with 14 out of phase piezo tweeters...get serious! I'm not going to bore you with details, but I've been a pro session guy in Nashville for 25+ years and am pretty focused on what I'm looking for. Yes, this is a killer amp and the tone control has a great range. I've used Vox amps extensively in the studio and as rental backline on road dates.The cut knob rolls off that ultra high freq range that complements Strats and Pauls, but can be annoying with a Tele. Taking the tone purist approach, I was looking for a way to do this with the Ghia without adding a pedal. Yesterday I tracked with a 2-10" cab with ceramics and found it to be a lot closer. Maybe some 10" alnicos are the answer. Dunno, work in progress...Thanks

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.
