The Dr. Z EZG-50 is
essentially their take on the classic Fender Blackface, and without a
doubt one of Humbucker Music's favorites. It has that definitive
American 6L6 clean sound with just the right amount of sparkle and
punch while retaining that thickness and warmth without muddying the
tone. Trust us, that's not easy to do, but Dr. Z absolutely
nailed it. You want Surf or Twang? No worries! The Dr
Z EZG-50 has it covered.
Mike Zaite (Dr Z himself) spent a great deal of time developing this
amp. The beginnings of which came from a 6L6 baaed transformer
designed for Dr. Z by Ken Fischer (Trainwreck). The output transformer
has a very unique impedance not used by other American amp makers and
is one of the primary contributors to the EZG-50s amazing tone. NOS
Allen Bradley carbon comp resistors are used in all critical tone
positions of the EZG-50 circuit. These classic resistors add a warmth
and depth to the tone that only they can give.
And about the Reverb... Don't even get us started! The
EZG-50 sports an all tube driven reverb circuit with both Dwell
and Mix knobs. These controls allows the player to fine tune the
amount of reverb to taste far better than a single knob. Anything
from a hint of space to that deep, dark, massive, chamber the size of
Notre Dame (the church not the college, sillyl!) can be had.
Easily the most impressive reverb on any amp we've heard. And
we've heard a lot!
You also get a full EQ and a Pre and Post master volume. On the back
are 16, 8, and 4 ohm speaker outs to accommodate any cabinet. With 50
watts of clean power, 2 knob reverb, and a tube rectifier, the EZG-50
is the blackface head that never was. and as only Dr. Z could do it!

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.
