I have been playing my EZG50 through my Z-best lately. I am really diggin' the sound. Loaded with a Celestion G12H30 and a Hellatone 60...this is one bad azzed rig. Can't wait to play her out tomorrow night. Cowboy Up! ;D
It was actually the Z-best that I used when I became sold on the EZG... fantastic combo! I'm now using the 2x10 convertible and am happy as a clam, but that combo of Evan and Z-best is formidable indeed!

When I first got my EZG I had a 4X10 on order and was using the Z-Best. I told Doc that my ears didn't want to hear a closed back Celestion loaded cab (as great as it is) with a "Fender" type amp, and I was really jonesin' for the 4X10. I got the 4X10 and it sounds great, but...
after Z-Fest I came home and plugged into the EZG and Z-Best again...WOW! What was I thinking before? What a great sound with a Strat! I've been glued to that amp/cab for the last three weeks (sorry Remedy....). I told Doc I was and idiot a year ago Doc replied "A Z-Best will improve any amps tone by 50%". Oh yeah...
Your Avatar has my cousin in it! Little Jimmy Dickens is a distant cousin of mine...4th or 5th. Anywho...
I just posted on the Maz Jr, forum about my first gig with my new (new to me loaded with Hellatone versions of the standard speakers) Z-Best. With a Jr it absolutely killed. Badass big tone with lots of slice, but not icepicky at all. Very cool!
I've said it before, but this just confirmed my thoughts. The 10" speakers lead the Maz in a decidedly Fender direction and the Celestion 12" speakers take it in that Brit direction.
Now I have to get my EZG-50 cranked up through the Z-Best and see what happens. Hiwatt? I can't see it being an improvement over the z 4 x10 matched with the EZG...That can't be improved on, but different and equally cool is a possibility.

I have a red EZG-50 and cab on the way. I went with a 1x12 cabinet with the Heritage 65 12" speaker inside, mainly because I already have a Z-Best 2x12 cab. Plus a 1x12 is way easier to carry around. It's nice to have options...

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.

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!
