Well, I have a Dr. Z again. Over the years they've come and gone and come again (I've had 3 Ghias, 2 or 3 maz Jr's, a Z28, a monza for a very short time and a cure also for a very short time). Today I traded one of my tweeds for an Antidote head and a killer Morgan custom cab with 1x12(Weber Ceramic) and 1X10 (Weber alnico). Sounds awesome with the Les Paul. It does have some intermittent noises (scratchy/static type sounds that come and go away pretty quickly). I'm assuming tubes and will be retubing soon. If that sounds like a bigger problem to you I'd love to hear about it.
Any advice on tube selection for this beast? I'll probably be plunking down the cash for an airbrake too.
Pretty sure the cab was a custom order. I couldn't find anything on their site matching this. So far, a killer combination. Very full and punchy but still warm and not harsh at all. I don't know much about those speakers but I know Webers are really good.

This thing is amazing. Just great tone no matter what the setting. Had to replace a preamp tube, which fixed the intermittent noises. Silent now. I am going to try to get a brake lite and see if I can get the volume down a bit with a little grit. Very cool rig.
I love my Antidote. When I think about selling it for something more practical volume wise, I listen to it and change my mind. The Airbrake is always on. It's my #1 amp at church and most gigs. Congrats.
awild: I am running the CAZ through a Marshall MX212R 160W 2x12" external cab... which is normally a bassy cab and it's on a wood floor... I am turning the bass up all the way on the amp for richness... is the CAZ an amp that is customized for sharper tones?

GuitarZ: Hmmm. I thinking "Baked Beans" would be a good opener for a band called "The Gas".

GuitarZ: Thank You Z-Talk! I blew the dust off of my Signa Drive to plug in and was scratching my head on my old settings. I finally thought to do a search here and found a Z-Talk thread from 2011 with my settings. Nice!

GuitarZ: Great Business Name: wickedcas.com Noticed it while looking at Google Maps. Was scratching my head as to the product. Saw it was custom car stuff & they're in New England. Light Bulb went on: Wicked Cas! Clever.

GuitarZ: The Mrs jumped into action to find me a cancellation & called multiple spots. One said they had one now if the person didn't show up. She said GO! Went & got the shot. Called the Mrs. She says Where are you At? Went to the wrong one. Guess I don't listen.

j4gitr: Second Pfizer shot gave me a sore arm I felt sluggish, but played a couple hours of guitar with a friend, and ran an errand. Afternoon nap just about set me right.
