I brought my 220v Ghia home for a little Maple Heights TLC, it has been bumped around on buses and planes and stored over the winter in dark, dank, damp places I dare not think about too much for what must be 10 years now until the last 4 or 5 years when I finally found a good affordable resting place for it. Just brought the chassis, left the head shell and the screws in the BIG A$$ XCase I bought for it off ebay years ago. The CASE is TWICE as big as the AMP! ANYWAY, Doc and I started talking a little more headroom and just a skosh more watts and before you know it I had seen the light! I also have ol' standby MAZ 38 at the ready, so THANKS AGAIN Doc, you have sure made it easier, well actually made it POSSIBLE for me to have my own amp overseas every night, which is a rarity in the world of fonky a$$ computer-grade backline appliances.
I would like to hear Buddy comment on this again after using the Z-28 for a few months.
I also love my Z 28. My 1st Z was the Maz 18. Used it for many years at my Church until we built a new Church that seats 3000 people. Decided to try some higher power amps, Matchless, then Tone King. They didn't work for me. I bought the Z Wreck when it came out. It was great, but just too much power. I bought my Z28 off the Buy and Sell and my tone just evolved to what I had always imagined. I settled with the Creamback for my speaker. It's just great, that's all I can say. Dldtex, I have also thought about trying another one in stereo. Let me know how that works for you.
Time is what keeps things from happening all at once!
