A Greenback is sweet with the Z28 but at 25watts it wouldnt handle the 66 or 38. Im using a Private Jack in my Z28 now for increased clean headroom and like it pretty good...only downside(for me anyway) is that it seems to be more directional/beamy than the Greenback so Ive ordered a Beam Blocker to see if that helps on small stages.
I agree with billyguitar on this one. I just picked up a red Z28 head and matching 1x12 cab. The cab has a Celestion greenback (English made). I tired both head and combo together and did not like the sound. My ES-335 especially in the treble area was brittle and beamy. I played the setup for about 20 minutes then plugged the head into my alnico Tone Tubby open back 1x12... BINGO... big fat sound, deeper bass, great treble and no brittleness or beamy tones, and just plain tone to die for. For those of you who tried tone tubbies 2 or 3 years ago and found them to dark, try them again, they have been redesigned with more highs even right out of the box. They have new voice coils that are much faster. Anyway my bid would be you try the tone tubby.

I have a zbest with the V30 & G12H--love the sound. But when I went to a 1x12 with just a V30, I didn't care for how harsh it sounded--it didn't seem very smooth. So I went to an Eminence Governor, and really liked the sound. It seems to match up well to my Maz 38. (I switched to a 1x12 while playing out b/c I didn't like lugging the 55 lb Zbest around!).
"From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put."
I like knowing the full resonant capability of the speaker cone is available without any dampening from dope. However, if cone cry or ghosting should become a problem then simply use a Hemp cone Tone Tubby for the louder solution and the untreated Weber for other solutions. To quote another Z member: "It makes sense if you don't think about it."

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.
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.
