Dr.Z MAZ-38 Senior 2x12 *without
in Black w/ Tan Grill
which includes the new EQ Tone Bypass switching!
a successful eight year production run, Dr. Z upgraded and enhanced the
classic tone of the MAZ-38. The updates include additional front-end
gain (for a bit more drive at lower volumes), a larger output
transformer for a wider bandwidth with clear lows and a less compressed
sound. By incorporating the phase inverter design from the MAZ 18
Jr., the MAZ 38 Sr. now uses no negative feedback which
provides "more, more, more..." More "thickness" more harmonic content,
and more sustain. We have also replaced the presence control with the
extremely useful "Cut" control, another innovation of the MAZ 18 Jr. So
the child reshaped the father, and the MAZ 38 Senior is the result.
combination of all these improvements "adds some cholesterol" to the
notes. This amp allows you to hear everything: pickups, wood, fretboard
material, strings, pick attack. Tones are clear, crisp, and responsive
to every one of the guitar player's nuances. The design improvements
give you all this along with a little more drive and sustain. The new
transformer keeps the bass tight, focused, and punchy to give you a
great "3-D" clean tone.
distortion is described as smooth-as-satin, and it is truly unique.

Dr Z Amps are officially UL/CSA certified! They're also CE
certified for the rest of the world. To our knowledge, they are
the only boutique amp manufacturer with models that are UL certified.
It's a very long and expensive ordeal and rightfully so, they are quite
proud to offer amps that are tested and certified for safety,
reliability, and durability.
Dr. Z Amplification are tested and spot checked quarterly by ETL to
insure their building methods and materials meet the strict
requirements for certification.
Other than safety, why is this important? UL
Certification also requires a manufacturer to build for durability and
reliability. The chassis, solder points, transformers, etc have
to meet certain criteria, such as:
Vibration : Such as withstanding a bumpy road in the back
of your car.
Shock Resistance #1 : Shock, as in impact, not
electricity. Not all amps survive a fall or accidental drop.
Resistance #2 : Ok, now it's about electricity! :)
And the list goes on, but you get the picture.
The point is, it's truly rare, if not non-existant, that a hand-wired
custom amplifier company puts themselves out there to be scrutinized by
firms who literally spcialize in looking for reasons to shut them
down. In our opinion, that speaks volumes about Dr. Z and their
build quality. It gives us confidence in them, and in our
opinion, it should you as well.
