What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This amp can nail all of the American tones you'd ever need or dream of. Rich and rounded, thick mids and treble frequencies that sparkle and sizzle. Bass response that won't wobble out on you and all the amenities you could ever need from power switching, on-board tremolo, on-board reverb and a foot controller. The luscious on board trem is capable of everything from swish and sway to full on swell and the reverb can do everything from simple subtlety to a drenched wash. This amp is an absolute gem, a true homage to all of the great work from the guys over at Dr. Z. 

Manufacturer's Description from Dr. Z

Dr Z has always said that his next design will be the best. Well, his “next” design is here. We are so proud to add the Z-LUX to our line. The Z-LUX absolutely delivers that big, warm vintage tone of a true hand-wired tube amp. It’s a design that not only integrates favorite features from our entire line but also includes new ones of its own. Half/Full power switch, foot-switchable boost, master volume, reverb, tremolo, you name it...this amp has it. Every component was painstakingly selected to achieve the highest quality for both sound and durability. 
The Z-LUX starts with the front end of a MAZ and uses a combination of hand-rolled Jupiter caps, Mallory 150s and classic orange drop caps specifically selected for each stage. We also kept the foot-switchable EQ bypass boost but softened it a bit for a smoother overdrive. The power section is driven by 6V6 power tubes switchable between 2 (20 watts) or 4 (40 watts) via a half-power switch, much like the Remedy. The tube driven tremolo will give you deep pulsating swells of rich tone you can’t get from any pedal and when combined with the lush tube driven spring reverb...you won’t be able to put the guitar down. The sound of this amp will push your creativity to the max!
We completely re-designed the build and makeup of our cab and were able to achieve stunning full-bodied sounds in a sturdy yet ultra-light combo cab weighing in at a back-saving 45 lbs! We also teamed up with Eminence to design a new 12” speaker. The new Z-12 is an American-voiced 50 watt speaker designed to complement the vibrant tones of Dr Z amps. Designing a cab and a speaker at the same time was the best idea. It allowed us to have complete control over the quality and make of every component truly achieving vintage tone for today.
