    Dr. Z DB4 Combo 1x12  Celestion Alnico Gold / Red Tolex
    Features:

    The DB4 is the fourth collaboration between Dr. Z and Brad Paisley (hence the name DB4: Doc & Brad’s fourth amp design). Brad asked for a rich and warm sounding British-voiced amp. I started with a clean sheet of paper. The input of the amp uses a 5879 U.S. made pentode preamp tube. This was the tube selected by Les Paul to be used in his Gibson GA-40 Les Paul amp. The full-bodied silky tones of the 5879 are then driven into a rotatory frequency filter. This control selects between jangly brilliance to deep and full resonant tones and everything in between. To help fine adjust the hue of delivered frequency to the four EL84 output tubes is a cut control. Think of this as a tone control for your output tubes. This original amp design has its own voice, one that doesn’t sound like any EL84 amp you have ever heard. 1×12 “Classic-Lite” combo loaded with a Celestion Alnico Gold,

    Dr. Z DrZ ZLux 112 Combo Black
    Features:

    Dr Z has always said that his next design will be the best. Well, his “next” design is here. We are so proud to add the Z-LUX to our line. The Z-LUX absolutely delivers that big, warm vintage tone of a true hand-wired tube amp. It’s a design that not only integrates favorite features from our entire line but also includes new ones of its own. Half/Full power switch, foot-switchable boost, master volume, reverb, tremolo, you name it…this amp has it. Every component was painstakingly selected to achieve the highest quality for both sound and durability. The Z-LUX starts with the front end of a MAZ and uses a combination of hand-rolled Jupiter caps, Mallory 150s and classic orange drop caps specifically selected for each stage. We also kept the foot-switchable EQ bypass boost but softened it a bit for a smoother overdrive. The power section is driven by 6V6 power tubes switchable between 2 (20 watts) or 4 (40 watts) via a half-power switch, much like the Remedy. The tube driven tremolo will give you deep pulsating swells of rich tone you can’t get from any pedal and when combined with the lush tube driven spring reverb…you won’t be able to put the guitar down. The sound of this amp will push your creativity to the max! We completely re-designed the build and makeup of our cab and were able to achieve stunning full-bodied sounds in a sturdy yet ultra-light combo cab weighing in at a back-saving 42 lbs! We also teamed up with Eminence to design a new 12” speaker. The new Z-12 is an American-voiced 50 watt speaker designed to complement the vibrant tones of Dr Z amps. Designing a cab and a speaker at the same time was the best idea. It allowed us to have complete control over the quality and make of every component truly achieving vintage tone for today.

    Dr. Z Maz 18 Jr 2x10 Combo Blonde and Tan
    Features:

    General Information Originally designed as a “grab-and-go” studio and small club amp, the Maz 18 has made its way to some of the largest stages in the country. Don’t confuse “18 Watts” with “weak and flabby”. The Maz 18 will amaze you with its definition and headroom, all the way down to the low E…plenty of power for a single 12? speaker or 2×10? speakers (as pictured in the top photo.) You’ll use this amp in small clubs and never think about needing to mic it. Got a larger venue? Mic the Maz 18 and play away, because big amp tone and soul is all there. This is also a great amp for jazz guitarists, whether you’re looking to replace a small blackface amp or looking for an amp with enough complexity for fusion. The Maz 18 is an amp that every Strat or Tele player will love, but it’s not only for single coil players as humbuckers are right at home with the Maz 18 too. You get great drive sounds at higher volumes or the ability to use the Lo input for cleaner humbucker sounds. With a master volume and full EQ there is plenty of room for dialing in your desired tone. The “Cut” knob may be the most useful and versatile tone shaping tool on any guitar amp. Throughout its range, it produces a large variety of sounds to satisfy players using all guitars for most every style of music. The “Cut” knob is best used after the EQ is all set; turn it up for extra edge, turn it down for a more vintage sound. The Maz 18 has the perfect combination of front end drive and output tube distortion. It has a wonderful 3D reverb clean tone, matched with the sweetest top end response and tightest bottom end in a lower powered amp. All this has made the Maz 18 our most popular selling reverb combo to date. The front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Reverb, Cut, and Master. The back panel features a 4,8, and 16 ohm speaker out. An effects loop and our EQ bypass function is also standard. The footswitchable EQ bypass gives a great lead boost which effectively makes the 18 a 2 channel amp. The 18 is powered by a pair of cathode biased EL84s and a 5AR4 rectifier.

    Dr. Z Monza 1x12 Combo Red Tolex w/ Greenback
    Features:

    New for 2012 the Monza gets upgraded with a post phase inverter master volume and 16 ohm speaker out. It is now possible to get all the drive and grind the Monza is capable of at very low volume levels. The addition of the master really lets you get the most from the amp. Plus, when you turn the master all the way up it is completely out of the circuit. The Monza is a gain and sustain monster. It excels at giving your fingers back what they put in with the feel and response of an amp 5x its power. Chords ring strong while single notes rise and bloom. It’s like harnessing the power and response of a 100 watt stack without clearing the first 20 rows. The Monza features Volume, Drive,Tone, and Master controls. This isn’t your traditional master volume set up. The volume controls the clean to dirt range while the drive adds more sustain and depth as you turn it up. Notes just keep getting bigger and bigger. With Drive and Volume at 12:00 you get a brilliant gain sound that is effortless to play. The Monza is very touch sensitive to pick dynamics and backing off the volume on your guitar for a great clean sound. Turning the volume and drive up to higher levels will bring on an excellent fuzz face type drive that will collapse and bloom with no need for pedals. To put it simply, you’ll have a very broad range of gain sounds at your fingertips with just a guitar, amp, and cable. With the master volume control you can have your sound in the bedroom, the studio, and the stage. The Monza is available as a head, 1x10, 1x12, and 2x10 combo. The 1x10 features the Red Fang alnico 10 made by Eminence. This is an awesome sounding combination in a very portable package.

    Dr. Z Z-Plus 1x12 Blackout Combo
    Features:

    When Joe Walsh approached Dr. Z for a new amp to use on the latest Eagles’ tour, he harkened back to the legendary recordings with the James Gang, where Joe was using small, single ended Tweed combos. Never one to be satisfied with rehashing old designs, Dr. Z and Joe Walsh upped the ante by looking to hi-fi audio amplifiers; from this the Z-PLUS was born. The Z-PLUS is a parallel, single-end amplifier in true Class A configuration, which yields a rich clean tone that smoothly overdrives into gritty, harmonic-laden distortion. Single-ended, Class A operation produces full even-order harmonics which are typically cancelled in traditional push-pull, Class A/B tube amp designs. The result is sparkling and satisfying tone with the full range of 2nd and 4th order harmonics with clarity akin to an full bodied, acoustic guitar. While typically class A designs are limited by lower clean headroom, the Z-PLUS utilizes two 6V6 power tubes in parallel which increases clean headroom, per Joe Walsh’s request. For the best of both worlds, the inclusion of a half-power switch drops the second 6V6 out of operation, rewarding you with touch responsive drive, dynamic compression, and lowered headroom. All of the typical Dr. Z features are included: full EQ with master volume and cut, hi and lo sensitivity inputs, an effects loop, a rich reverb circuit, and our variable boost footswitch. The output transformer is a special design for this amp, constructed with the highest grade M-6 stacked laminates, coupled with our custom all-aluminum chassis, and built like a tank to UL-60065 specifications. The Z-PLUS is available in our standard Ultra-Lite 1×12 combo or smaller studio-lite combo with either a ceramic Z12 Eminence designed speaker, or an upgraded Celestion Alnico Blue.
