Thinking about a DB4 since the new ones will be gone soon and am curious to hear about the overdrive vs the MONZA. I’ve had 3 MONZA amps and don’t know why I keep getting rid of them....the lead tone of the MONZA is great....and the Fuzz it makes is awesome.
So I’m thinking about a new MONZA head for my 1x12 or the DB4 to try something new. I miss the bigness of the Therapy and thought the higher watts of the DB4 might bring back some authority.
Also I like that this amp is described as dark...because Z amps have ample high end and I usually run less treble than most.
Going to pair with the Cure for a nice stereo rig.
I would not label the Monza a "one-trick pony" -- more like a fire-breathing dragon! -- but it is somewhat limited in sonic scope. The DB4 has more range, imo. It has become one of my favorite Zs. The five-way tone selector is slick, and the amp goes from clean to crunch and beyond as you move Volume up. It's similar to the Z Wreck in that respect.
Gear piled high. Talent? Must be hidden in there somewhere.
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."
