damn You amazing Dr Z amps!!!!
I couldn't fight it. I already own a Route 66. I just put in an order at truetone music for a Black EZG-50. Cant wait to get it. To bad they are built on order, and i have to wait 4 weeks. Tough decision to go black instead of red. But a blackface amp deserves a to be black
now i just gotta get a nice Cab. I guess i could swap out the speaker in my port cit wave(G12H30) for something that can handle 50 watts. maybe a Weber Alnico blue dog or sliver bell. but that would give my EZG-50 a little British character. decisions, decisions....

Thanks guys... i just got chewed for spending $1800 by my Girlfriend, Mother, Father...lol... i kept hearing 1800 is for professionals. Hahaha....i should have said im on my way... . theyll be happy when i spend a few hundred on a new cab or new speakers.... I cant decide on a speaker.....
Weber Blue Dog vs. Weber AlNiCo 12A150 vs. alnico chicago vs. silver bell.
I play a lot of blues....with my route 66 i go for hendrix clapton type stuff.... i bought th ezg-50 for a john mayerish two rock TYPE tone.
i have 1 cab...id like to use that cab for both amps...which speaker is best for this? am i better off getting another cab?
If you're looking for a Fenderish tone I recommend another cab. Ask Ted Weber what he makes that would be a good replacement for a blackface speaker. I'm almost certain he has at least one. Try an open (or oval) back pine cab. I had one built for me at a reasonable price by JDesigns. One of the nice things about JDesigns is he (Jeff) can build you a different baffle if you want to try another speaker configuration. He keeps your specs and he'll just send you a 2x10 or a 1/15 baffle that will fit your cab.
You could save a few bucks by getting one from Better Built Workshops (ask for the Fender style tolex). They can build any size/shape you want. Allen amps makes cabs that are appropriate for that sound as well.
Of course there's Z cabs. Quality stuff but I don't think Z makes a pine cab.
THE STUFF I'M HAPPY WITH:
James Tyler SEHD
Allen Amplification Accomplice
Vovox, van den Hul and Sommer cables
Area 51 wah
Goodrich volume pedal
Tone Tubby ceramic 12"
mid 60's Gibson J-45
J Design cab

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!
