    So, I have a Maz 38 which I'm not thrilled with. I'm looking for a more vox like sound. Are there any mods that can make the maz a little more chimey? I've read the power section is based off a vox, but the preamp is tweed-like. I would just sell it and buy a vox, but I don't have the original cabinet and that's pretty much killed the value so I'm thinking mods might be the way to go. I might be wasting my time here, but I thought I would ask. Thanks

    What speakers are you using? If you are not using a Celestion Alnico Blue, that's the first thing I would do. I used to have a Maz 38 and thought it was a great amp, but I've never owned an AC-30, so don't know how they compare.
