I have owned many Z's and loved many of them! However I find myself Z-less at the moment! If you could compare the differences for me!
Z-Plus to Z-28, Cure, Z-Lux...
The Z-28 to me was the warmest of the 3 but SO LOUD! The Z-Lux I only ever used the half power brighter than the Cure and Z-28! The Cure was the best as far as volume control, but still a little bright. That being said I had great tones with all 3, I think my battle worn ears are sensitive to highs anymore? What are your thoughts?
Try to look unimportant they may be running low on ammo... Infantry Journal...

I, too, am overly sensitive to treble and bass frequencies these days. I prefer mid range focused amps. The Z Plus is the brightest of the lot, but because of Doc's special sauce, is not harsh by any means. Very hard to describe, you have to hear it.
That said, I've been fortunate to have owned many nice amps over the years. The only two I've seriously considered re-purchasing are a Ecstasy 101a and the Z28. I LOVE that amp.

That helps a lot! I can't leave out the 110 Ghia it was special too, I'd love to have a Z28 with a level control like the Cure!
I just picked up a ghia 1/10....had one some time back....this ones a whole different sounding amp to my ears...Tone sweep seems more broader...more lowend and tonefull mids, highs aren't shrill...I don't know if it is the Z speaker this time (fang last one) around but its a keeper.
