I am a newb here, but have recently sold off a Maz 18 Jr. and am REALLY stoked about the EZG-50 right now. I have read a ton about it in this forum. Thanks to everyone's insight. Great stuff in here. It seems like most peeps here are playing a Strat or Tele through this. Any word on how Humbuckers sound through it. I am thinking about getting the 2x10 cab because I found a good deal on it. Am I going to be bumming in the long run without the 4x10?

I have been running about a half and half mix of humbuckers and single coils through mine since I got it. First of all, I am using a 2x10 convertible cab with mine and I think it sounds great. I went through the same issues over the 4x10. To me it comes down to the fact that the 2x10 is easier to carry to gigs. I really like the 2 10 cab, I think you will like either one.
As for the pickup configurations. The strat sounds great through it. if you are looking for that strat texas blues sound, maybe an overdrive pedal, it is beautiful. I really like the humbuckers too. I was very pleased to hear the Les paul through it. it gave a nice warm clean tone, and did very well with a distortion pedal, much better than I expected. The amp really takes pedals well. I have used my ES 335 with it as well. It makes a great jazzy tone. There are so many good tones in the EZG. I have done a lot of playing with the eq knobs, which work very well as do all of Dr Zs tone knobs. The reverb is very nice as well.
All in all, the humbucker guitars performed great through the EZG. I have been finding it very versitile with either pickup configuration.

i play a mix of single coils and humbuckers through my EZG - tele, LP, and I-35. the humbuckers sound wonderful and the 2x10 cab is a really nice match. sorry to hear that you got rid of the Maz; hopefully you'll decide to keep the EZG. enjoy!

I'm playing a 335 through mine, and really loving it. It pretty much wants to see that treble knob almost dimed, but that's ok. The tight, but FAT, low end on the EZ is a natural fit. No "fart out" like many BF amps do, as you crank them.

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.

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.

doctorice: Just replaced a kitchen faucet. Hardest part was getting the old one out -- had a weird flange on it. Good luck, Matt!

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!
