Picked up a 1-12 combo red. Hell of an amp. The sleeper Z for sure. After a dozen or so Z'z I have landed on a MSZ38NR head.a Therapy head and the 20/40. I think I am done..lol...I never considered this amp in over 10 years playing Z amps not even sure why I grabbed this one but glad I did. It's near the end of the run I think. It's a twoFer a Jaz and a zlux...
Congrats. The JAZ is a great amp. I actually only have two amps now all together. The JAZ combo and a Therapy head cab. Its all I need ... There is a huge splash going on with the Z-lux, which is awesome. But us guys with the JAZ knew how awesome this amp platform has been for a long time now .
Amp sounds killer.. run it half power cranked up pretty good...use boost to kick it up. It's not that I don't like the full power just not had to use it yet..have gig coming up that will run it full..vib is killer...may put push-pull variable negative feedback control so can engage it or remove it as needed ...my old fenders have this mod....I love it...
I have no idea how the circuit is constructed Never saw schematic or amp opened up. It seems to be refined to a degree so perhaps there is some room to raw it out more. Would leave that to only one tech that I know of around here. Plus I will have to track him down in vt.
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: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

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."
