I just purchased a z verb for my z wreck and am just wondering if there is any way to have your verb sitting on top of your wreck, in the paisley vid he clearly has his sitting on top of the wreck, but when i do it theres a brutal hum until you move it off, is there anyway around this?
Thanx i tried the cords and what not,and it goes away when i move it but i would like to be able to keep it stacked on top of it but cant seem to find anything that works besides moving it off of the wreck head.
I have read the posts about Z-Verbs and hum when placed on top of an amp. I have one on top of my Stangray head and one on top of my Soldano Hot Rod 25 head and no hum from either.......maybe I am just lucky??? The Soldano is a very high gain amp......I better stop writing before I jinx myself I am using George L cables also.

rub it in why dontcha lol jks,there has to be a way to get it to stop, i found if i put my zwreck on top of the verb the hum goes away but it looks stupid and its not very sturdy,but when i put the verb on top of the wreck theres a brutal hum? i wouldn't have payed the extra 300 dollars for the matching verb for the wreck if i knew it was just going to have put it on the floor and not be able to stack it. Any other ideas?
I talk to DR Z when I first received mine as the hum was unbearable. I too assumed that if it worked in the reviews it should work for me. The response was the transformers in both are large and if the are too close it is usually unavoidable. That also explains why no hum when on some of the other amps. Still looks great with matching front beside the 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!!!!

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.

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!
