Manufacturer's Description from Dr. Z

The CURE is an amp that takes Dr. Z Amps back to its roots. Built on our 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 our award-winning Z-LUX as it’s starting point, but simplifies this formula by forgoing reverb and tremolo, yet retains the rich “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. Saturating the amp into smooth distortion, the CURE is reminiscent of our THERAPY amplifier but in combo form. 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 1×12 “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.


A great “grab-n-go” package that will please even the most discerning tone aficionado, the CURE is as easy on the wallet as it is on your ears.
