I finally had a chance to play my new DB4 head. I liked it a lot with the CS-336 and ES-330. I had to attenuate, but it really sounded nice when it was louder.
I like how the tone selector switch works differently from the Vox/Matchless to my ear: it cuts treble as you turn it clockwise instead of cutting bass as you turn the Matchless counter clockwise. I didn’t find a super happy sound on 1, but 2-5 had generous sweet spots with the 330 and 2-4 were great with the 336.
It may be hard to throw over the ZWreck and the Route 66, but this is really nice. It’s funny, I never was all that wild about humbuckers through the ZWreck until I ordered the Route 66, and then I gave it more of a chance and it worked great (the key is more volume.) Now I have three great Zs for HBs. All of my amps sound good with single coils.
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."
