Excellent review. I'm sure Brent will be asking for permission to publish it on the Z website, but here are a couple of brief quotes.
"The Brake Lite is impressively transparent, with next to no discernible change in the tone or dynamics of the amp as you reduce volume. At no point does the amp sound neutered or robbed of tone, even at maximum attenuation......It's simple to fit, simple to use and it simply works"
"Gold Stars: - Transparent volume reduction. - Simple to fit & operate. - Neat mounting arrangement. Black Marks: - Limited to 45 watts or under. - Some users will want more than -11db of attenuation.
GB Rating: 5 Stars (or picks ;D) "
Price from Peach in the UK is £145.
My opinion....I bought one and fitted it to my 2 x 10 convertible cab (used with Maz 18 NR head). Excellent piece of kit.
Z Cure...In da house. The Blondes: Z Carmen Ghia 1 x 10 RF Z MAZ Jr NR Head with `Harvey` valance. Z Galaxie Head (Ch2 M/Vol) with 'Harvey' valance. Z 2x10 convertible Cab Studioslips Clamshells!! Z Brake Lite Z-Drive
Some `other`amps and a was at too many guitars (18 at the last count).
Red Ghia head Blonde Z-28 head Black Z 2x10" cab w/Greenbacks Black Z 1x12" cab w/Greenback Marshall 1974X 1x12" combo Clark Beaufort 3 Monkeys Sock Monkey 1x12" combo Fender CS '51 Relic Nocaster Fender CS '50's Relic Esquire Gibson CS aged 58 Les Paul Sunburst Gibson CS VOS 58 Les Paul Junior DC Lots of cool pedals
I have one in my MAZ Jr and I love it. At home, it stays on 4 (max attenuation) and I am really able to get the most out of the amp while sitting just a few feet away. Setting 2 or 3 would be fine for most gigs I would play.
How great it would be, in addition to all of the wonderful things you're already known for, to have a reputation as a good person. But how overshadowing of all your talents will a bad reputation be! Therefore, choose your words wisely and seek to be kind.

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.
