My Maz 38 SR NR recently died at a rehearsal. It worked fine for a few minutes then just stopped creating any sound. No pop/bang or anything just silence. The power light is still on. I got it home and tried with different cables and different cab, still no sound. Any ideas before I take it to service shop? I bought it second hand about 8 years ago and have never done any tubes on it as it seemed to be working all fine.

Yours has 2 fuses I assume (don't know if they all do or just certain versions)? When it happened to me the 1/2 amp fuse had gone. Amp will still power on but won't make any noise. Either way, like everyone else said, it is probably time to start thinking about a retubing.
Telecaster/Les Paul -> A circus of various pedals -> Maz 38 Sr.
I took the advice of some folks on this board and replaced the stock Sino 5AR4 that came with my MAZ 8 with a NOS (mislabeled) 5AR4 from KCA Tubes. Link It seemed to open up the amp quite a bit... made it sound bigger and brighter. KCA guarantees his rectifier tubes for 6 months. $96 bucks is kinda pricey, but it should last for several years.
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."
