What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This non-reverb Maz 18 paired with a matching 2x12 Z Best cab is rock and roll machine. Singing sustain, tube saturated overdrive, and ringing clean sounds are all available and jump to life. Finished off in this handsome red tolex, you'll surely turn some heads!

Manufacturer's Description from Dr. Z

So what do you get when you take the reverb out of the faithful Maz 18? You get more singing gain and less compression making it the perfect club amp for all you rock and rollers and roots music players. The Maz 18 NR has that certain old school attitude that comes alive under your fingers. You can dial in clean chimey tones or raw vintage drive. The NR delivers rich singing tones from single coils and sweet British crunch from humbuckers. Coupled with a Z Best cab, the Maz 18 NR can hang on any large club stage. The 1×12 or 2×10 combos are excellent grab and go gig/studio amps.

The front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Master, and the ever versatile Cut control. Think of the Cut as a tone knob for the output tubes. 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 NR a 2 channel amp. The 18 NR is powered by a pair of cathode biased EL84s, has three 12AX7s in the front end, and a 5AR4 rectifier. With 18 watts at your finger tips you can get that perfect blend of front end grind and output tube sustain.
