I see the Dr. Z website states that a 2x12 open back cab is available. Is it a Thiele ported Zbest with a different back or a non-thiele ported conventional design. Has anyone heard/seen one? The Dr. doesn't state the dimensions for this particular cab.
Myles, I should have typed a little more definitive...these darn computers ;-)
The open back at Mass Music has NO connection to BP I'm aware of, it was simply a link to show what one looks like. I'm under the impression the red one with Weber Blue/Silver alnicos pictured in Brads "Gear" section on his website, was the 2x12 open back that got Z going in that direction.
For what it's worth, I have a maz 38 sr (with reverb AND the effects loop no less) and one of Z's new open back 2X12 cabs. The cab is loaded with 2 celestions, one vintage 30 and one G12H30 anniversary model. It is not ported, and is conventional in design. It is exactly the cab I have been questing for.
In a word, the cab is - incredible. each speaker compliments the sound of the other. The Z-Best ported cab has, in my simplistic opinion, a couple drawbacks for my own preferences - 1 is weight and size, and another is the tighter, bassier response (which you may actually prefer). ahh well - quite minor really.
let me suggest you read the following for more info....a bit old, but great reading

Well, I took the plunge. I ordered the cab with 2 G12H30's. I need another cab like a hole in the head, but I think I should have all bases covered with all my cabs for any future heads. Oh, I also ordered a Z28. The waiting begins.

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!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

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.
