Hi guys, A local mom and pop have in a used Mini Z head (I think) and the owner said it was one of the older models with the old transformer - what does that mean? What changed and what's the difference?
I beleive the newer transformers were changed in 2012. They're bigger like the maz 8 transformers and produce a bigger bolder tone. If you want to do an upgrade on the older mini's you can send thwm.into the Z shop for an upgrade

Bloozeman ia correct with regard to the sound. I've posted a lot about the Mini and both transformers. I have owned both (at the same time for a while). Long story short...I liked both for different reasons. Still have the one with the new transformer but I have had it modded with a bright switch for low volume situations.
Check out these threads. In the last one I even posted pics of both transformers inside my amps so you can tell the difference.

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."
