What We Think

Condition: Used, Good (tolex lifting up in a few positions and a number of scuffs and tears; pictured)

This amp's seen a lot of use over the past 20 years, and there's no question in our mind why! Paired up with the matching 2x12 closed back cab, you unlock powerful British-style clean tones and bone crushing overdrive sounds that will give you goosebumps. 

Manufacturer's Description from Dr. Z

The Prescription is one of the Doctor’s first amps, and its reputation will allow it to be one of the most popular Dr.Z amps for years to come. Players across the country have sung its praises, critics have gushed, and the word has spread. The Prescription is a British-voiced amplifier with its own distinct personality.

The tone of this amp screams rock and roll when cranked, but when clean, its bell-like tone and piano-like clarity on the low notes gives excellent articulation on complex chords. The Prescription is complex and rich in harmonics, and gives incredible touch sensitivity and string-to-finger feel. So whether you’re looking for clean and pretty, or crunch of doom for some rippin’ blues slide, the ‘Script may be the amp for you.
