well, i have owned a 69 pro reverb, with original speakers,, and i would have to say right off the bat that the z doesnt have the exact type of "sag" that my pro reverb had. it is tighter with more bottom. i dont miss it, but they are not the same. i am sure other pro reverbs might be different. i had heard that the ezg-50 had a 5u4gb rectifier in the beginning., but i dont know how the two(5ar4) would differ. i am pleased with the way this one sounds..

I have a 66 Super Reverb in mint condition - a lot of the same tones. However since my EZG was delivered the cover on the SR has stayed on more frequently than not! Comparison is a little apples to oranges since I play the EZG through 4x12 EVH III cab - lots of punch and more bottom.
I have a drip-edge pro which has blackface circuitry and I reckon the EZG sounds very different. The pro has a much softer attack at the start of the note, the EZG has better note definition, more bottom end but less sparkle. I think the pro is a more "forgiving amp" but the EZG can really inspire you to play well 'cause you can hear everything.

I've got a Super Reverb too. The EZG has a much smoother treble and a different midrange (more "Hiwatt"; not quite as scooped as a Fender). The bass on the EZG is *much* tighter and doesn't flub out at high volumes. The reverb on the EZG is more controllable. The pre and post volumes on the EZG are great. Even though I have the tremolo disconnected on the SR the EZG still has more harmonics and "swirl"; I think the output transformer has something to do with that. Needless to say I love my EZG!

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.
