Z-Wreck and Therapy owners chime in here....but from memory I think the Z-Wreck is a little bolder, a little more percussive, a little louder, and has more of an upper mid bump. Maybe on "comfort" the dynamics and loudness differences are even closer.
Hope you don't mind Phil, but I used your quote to start this thing off..... You had mentioned it a couple of other places too...
After the first day with my Therapy, I really didn't see the comparison as much as I've come to see....
I first and still think the Therapy reminds me of the Antidote as in being fatter and thicker sounding. But the touch sensitivity attributes of this amp are similar.
They both sound great with pedals, but they both seem to beg to be just plugged straight in...maybe a boost, and that's it.
I have not even tried anything but a KTR into my Therapy....no need. It's all there. Just like the Z Wreck.
The Therapy's master volume make it even more versatile than the Z Wreck in a way.
Sonically, the Therapy has more lowend than the 'Wreck and is even warmer as well. It has plenty of shimmering highs, but can't quite get the Z Wreck chime going on.
I think the Therapy has more headroom than the 'Wreck combo as well. They are similar in volume, but the master on the Therapy eliminates the need for a Brake-Lite. And it seems to work even better!
The Z Wreck sounds great with all guitars, but seems to favor single coils to my ears. The Therapy is not prejudice in the least. It doesn't matter what's feeding it.
I love my Z Wreck combo...and I love my Therapy. I could see the Therapy being my only guitar amp. I could not say the same for the Z Wreck.
Looking forward to other opinions and comparisons...
