It's amazing sounding....I was stunned at how it seemed so transparent....it really enhances the Therapy and increases sustain and pleasesing subtle nuances and harmonics....it's soooo soulful. I'm sure I'll say more later... A few pics, OOh first Palen Music Center from Spingfield Missouri has been AMAZING to deal with and Shay, who helped me was super fast in replying and keeping me in the loop of shipping. He even gave me a personal cell phone number just in case I had any questions

I'm honestly surprised at how much I love the Z Verb.....I had a good hour last night and today I played a few hours....I expected to like it and even love it but I didn't think it would 'move' me. I've had guitars and amps move me....but I didn't think a reverb could do it....reverb seems like an ordinary effect and one that I thought little of...as in not impressed with.....certainly not as cool as say a Fuzz or POG or phasers...I recently traded for a Spaceman Orion and really liked it...it's certainly more springy than the Z Verb which feels more like rooms in a reverbs mind.
The Z Verb meshed with the Therapy so well....like a good lady does to a fella it kinda rounded off the edges and warmed up the signal....filling it out and making it even more 3D. This Reverb has soul and with my trusty Strat I was catching all kinds of groovy groves.
I really don't know how Z does it. I constantly have under expected.....his designs keep surprising me and over delivering. Therapy > Z Verb > Stratocaster =. Good feelings.
I'll try to get some video proof of the water damage my house is taking on from all the wetness my new Z Verb is pouring forth.
I'm just bumping this up to gush on the Z Verb some more......
Really surprised at just HOW MUCH this Z Verb sweetens the whole vibe .... Almost like some people use a Klon or Klone or maybe even a Timmy to just sweeten the tone a bit.....sounds great with the Strat and the LP, loud or quiet, with or without gain or fuzz.....
It can sound like a big room...warehouse, or it can get that springy poppy thing going....looks smooth in silver....really chill. I haven't turned it off yet.
Very inspiring. Very musical. Like sweet tea on a hot day in the shade.....coooooool man.

Sell that quantum silver to me and buy a different color!! Im serious
The Z Verb was my first NEW Z after years of used buying. My intentions are to never part with my Cure, Z Verb duo. Sorry. If I was you I'd buy the one for $500 on the buy n sell and be happy. But I do like the silver. Either way, the Z Verb is a steal at that price no matter the color.
Keep an eye out for a silver if you must and one will show eventually....mine seemed random.
KeithA: Hueter Toledo....that business is gone to the dogs

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!
Jul 10, 2020 7:40:17 GMT -7
The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.
Jul 10, 2020 12:56:49 GMT -7
GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.

doctorice: Just replaced a kitchen faucet. Hardest part was getting the old one out -- had a weird flange on it. Good luck, Matt!

GuitarZ: After finally training myself after 4 days to not bother trying to turn on the guest bathroom light because of the power outage, I just found myself bracing for the sound of the generator as I opened the garage door and it's now quiet. Power Back!

GuitarZ: Oh Man! My drummer built his own studio back about 25 years ago. I still remember lugging that drywall down to the basement. He did drywall, insulation, drywall. So, there was a lot of drywall!
