Absolutely killer amp! I had a Maz38 that I never bonded with that I was able to trade for this beauty. It's a 1999 2x12 combo.
This amp has a cooling fan installed: Was this done by Z when the amp was made? Or did a previous owner (apparently it went through a few hands) install it? It's very noisy... and I definitely can't record with that thing going. Can I uninstall it? Or does it need the fan to keep cool?
What exactly does the expand switch do? I read a few people saying that when you flip it up it gets a lot more Voxy. But some further insight would be great!
The guy who sold it to me told me it was 50+ watts... Though all the info I can find says it's actually 45 watts. Is that true?
Anyways... Any info on this amp would be welcome! Thanks

It probably is an original factory fan - I've got them in a Bluesman and a Super Z from around that time. It's probably ok to unplug the fan (they are a little noisy) as long as you're not going to be pushing it hard for a prolonged time. However, if you're gonna be cranking it for a couple hours - all bets are off. leave it plugged in.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
