I'm loving this CURE amp... still have a bit of exploring to do between my pedals, amp and efx loop. Thank you all for advice and suggestions. I might try "tubes" first, then replace the speaker... but I need to break this Z speaker in first... gotta say the amp is a delight to play...

I get a lot of mileage out of my Cure. All rehearsals, and quite a few gigs too. When I need clean I turn the Level all the way up, set the MV to around 3:00 (experiment here) and use the Volume for my "Level". The Vol and MV interact so play with it. I get quite a bit of clean headroom with mine, and it's factory stock.

+1 regarding the interactive V and MV. I've found backing the MV off a little, keeping the V pretty low and bringing the Level all the way up gives the cleanest tones. Also, pulling the mids back a bit, especially if you're using humbuckers. I kind of had the same issue when I first got the amp, but now I feel like it has plenty of headroom for most situations.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.
Jul 10, 2020 12:56:49 GMT -7
GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
