The Dr. Z Cure 1x12 Combo amp takes Dr. Z Amps back to its roots. Built on their 30 year foundation of delivering excellent, professional-grade amplifiers, it is designed using the highest grade components, totally hand-built, and available at a very reasonable price.
The CURE uses Dr. Z's award-winning Z-LUX as it’s starting point; you could consider it the “Z-Lux Jr.” It simplifies the Z-LUX formula, forgoing reverb and tremolo, yet retains the rich, tube-rectified, 6V6 “American” voiced tone the Z-LUX is renowned for. At the heart and soul of the CURE is a vintage-voiced output transformer hand-wound by Triad Magnetics, the company responsible for the transformers in the classic “tweed” amps of the 1950s. The CURE also features an effects loop, a full EQ with master volume, as well as a global output level control. It is housed in our compact, light-weight, yet resonant 1Ã—12 “Studio” cab with our specially designed Eminence Z12 speaker(as featured in the Z-LUX combo) for maximum portability. Set your volume and master for desired clean or distortion then set the overall loudness with the Level control. I have also included our Variable Boost footswitch for additional gain to take your lead playing over the top. Specifications
