    Dr Z MAZ 38 SR NR

    Did my first gig last night with my new MAZ 38 SR NR and 2-10 Z Best cab. This thing is killer! I bought the 38 because I needed a litle more than I was getting from the MAZ 18 but this my be too much. I can see an Airbrake in my future.

    For what you get they are very reasonably priced in my opinion. They won't cost what a Matchless cost.

    There are a number of dealers that carry them both in house and on line. I've had great dealings with the following:

    Willcutt Guitars - Lexington KY
    Fat Sound Guitars - Cary, NC
    Black Creek Guitars - New Paltz, NY

    I've owned Dr. Z Mazerati, MAZ 18 Jr (both reverb and non reverb) Carmen Ghia, Z-28and Maz 38 NR .

    All have been outstanding amps,

    Maz 18 Reverb owner!

    I love this thing. As close to a perfect amp as I've ever come. Loves my PRS Dragons, and that's saying a lot, cuz those pickups are pretty "neutral" sounding. This amp makes them scream and snap. The half-pint reverb tank... well, I aint floored by it. But, as a great tele player once said... "Turn it up loud enough, and it dont NEED reverb."

    I've had my Z Prescription for a couple of years now, like it a lot! Mine's been modded to add a master volume in the back of the amp, works real nice, it can take the volume way down without changing the tone too much.
    I recently bought a Z 2x12 openback cab for it.

    Would love more info on the MV for the RXES. If I could do that, I could leave the Brake Lite on the Ghia permanently.

    I'm sorry but I don't have much info to give you, the previous owner had a tech do it. He removed the footswitchable boost and made it into a MV.
    It's an original Prescription by the way, not and RXES.

    Gotta love the harmonic overtones....they are lush, like a giant orchestra.
