When the Therapy came out I wanted one. Just what I was looking for. Other priorities got in the way though, and then my band switched to all acoustic and I started doing trio/duo work. My Z28 (which I love for what it is and does) has sat more or less idle for a few months now.
My electric playing fell by the wayside as well (approx. 1000 gigs with the same band necessitated a break!) and I just enjoyed my acoustic playing and acoustic gigs.
I think it's time to revitalize my electric playing. My buddy approached me last week with the prospect of a fusiony/funk/jazz project (think Oz Noy.....well, without Oz Noy's chops ) but it's something that I'd love to do for the pure fun of the music, with a gig here and there if we can find one.
Anyway, I digress. As cool as the Z28 is, I think the Therapy might be a better fit for me now. I love the idea of an amp that has those thick, woody, muscular high headroom cleans, but can also get a little nasty. And the PPIV master is just the ticket for when I want to get crazy in the home bedroom studio.
My Z28's up for trade in the emporium. This might take a while, but I've got the time. And it feels good to feel the flame burning again.

Ohhhhhh, this is SUCH a difficult post for me to read.........
I LOVE my Therapy.......and I LOVE my Z28............. and they are all the amps I will ever need.......... but to have to sacrifice one for the other, is a choice I have not yet had to make, so I know how tough that must be!! In the VERY finely tuned balance though, it's got to be the Therapy!!

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.

roscoenyc: Whenever I see the phrase "clean pedal platform" I'm filled with sadness about the real tube amp joy that could have been.
