Manufacturer's Description from Dr. Z

Based on the modern day classic Maz 18 platform, the Maz 8 is set to become the new standard in single ended class A amps.  If you are tired of thinking of ways to win the volume wars with sound guys, club owners, and recording engineers the Maz 8 is the solution.  The Maz 8 is a full featured 8 watt amp that will give you an incredible range of shimmering cleans to full on rock action at reasonable volume levels.

The Maz 8 gives you the true class A experience.  The single EL84 output section can be run in Pentode or Triode mode.  In Pentode mode you get the sonic signature of the Maz 18.  The chimey top end and sweet low end bloom are all there, but at a significantly lower volume.  The pentode setting gives you plenty of dynamic range for clean country picking to grinding riff rock bliss.  You can even take it a step beyond with the footswitchable EQ bypass function.  This gives you a great gain boost for effortless leads that will sustain for days.  The Maz 8 takes on a much different dialect in triode mode with more of a vintage feel and sound.  In triode, the volume level drops back and the tone fattens up making you think you plugged into a lost gem from the 1950s.  Kicking on the EQ bypass in triode mode will have you reaching for your slide in no time.  

The front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Reverb, Master, and the ever versatile cut control.  Think of the cut control as a tone knob for the output section.  The back panel features a 4, 8, and 16 ohm speaker out.  An effects loop and EQ bypass are standard.  The back panel also has the pentode/triode switch.  The Maz 8 is available as a head, 2x10, and 1x12 combo.  The 1x12 comes standard with a Celestion H30 speaker.  You get a choice of our new smaller 1x12 Studio combo cab or the standard size 1x12.  The 1x12 Studio cab makes for a great grab and go amp.
