Hey All, I picked up a used Mazerati a couple months ago. I love it. I spent $999. I think that was a fair price, if it wasn't, well, doesn't matter now. It's very clean and it's right up there with the best I've ever owned. It's got Genalex EL-84 tubes in it. The rectifier tube looks to be an NOS Mullard. I'm running it into a Mesa Boogie cab loaded with a Wharehouse Guitar Speaker Blackhawk (alnico magnet). Anyway, I've included pics. Any thoughts or information on the amp would be appreciated. I don't know a great deal about them. Thanks

I think that's an early version two. I own a version one from '00. My serial number starts with a K. I have owned mine for the better part of a decade. I LOVE mine. I'm sure you'll enjoy yours too. They really are special. My four ohm Z Best cab is from the same year I believe. Grab a Z Best if you can and thank me later. Have fun!
I’m assuming it’s all stock (except the tubes). I’ve not pulled the chassis out yet, probably will sometime when I’m bored. This was on consignment at my local store for a bit...long enough for me to talk myself into buying it. It’s very clean. I love the sound. I’ve read enough of this board to know that many object to the Vox comparisons, but it does have a Vox flavor, at least to my ears. That’s a good thing. The only EL84 amps I’ve ever liked have been Vox. Anyway, it’s a great amp.

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."
