These amplifiers are quickly becoming one of my all time favorite clean amps. Dr. Z has such a great classic rock tone and what they are all about it pure tone. They have a solid tone and many artists are using them on their records and live touring stages. This amp is very popular with the country players. It has a great tone for guys you like to chick pick and get that chimy clean moderately broken up overdrive sound. These amps prides themselves on being somewhat versatile but more user friendly tone machines. These amps are great for just about any style of music other than metal. . This amp has the same great features and tone as the black standard but just in a salt and pepper grill cloth. There is no up charge for this custom job but is sure is worth it it were an extra cost.

SOUNDS

That amp sound very big and that may be one of their selling points. Their amps aren't a hole lot of power but have a brilliance of volume and girth that make them sound incredible. The tone of this amp is pretty good. It has a nice blend of the power tubes and preamp valves. This is an amp that will take pedals very well. It has a nice effects loop to allow its user to insert delays and chorus sound into the effects loop and still keep the same preamp tone. For not being a whole lot of power it still packs a big punch in volume and tone.

These amps have a familiar control knob called "cut" which you may have seen on another amp called the Vox Ac30. This allows you to dial in some of that class grind. The "cut" knob may be the most useful and versatile tone shaping tool on any guitar amp. Throughout its range, it produces a large variety of sounds to satisfy players using all guitars for most every style of music. The "cut" knob is best used after the EQ is all set; turn it up for extra edge, turn it down for a more vintage sound.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in right at around $1649. That is a great price for an amp that sound this good. There is no up charge or down charge for this combo in this grill cloth custom change. Some other colors and options to charge more but not this one. It is a very usable gigging amp and will treat its owner quite well. I would recommend this amp to anyone who used to like s a good clean tone that can get a solid chimy and sustaining overdrive tone.
