Dr. Z Nova Amps

The Dr. Z Nova Amp heads a bit into new territory for Dr. Z Amplifiers. It features two channels: One is a clean channel similar to a low powered tweed twin, and the other is an overdriven channel that blends into the clean channel for a balance of string articulation and thick gain.

The Dr. Z Nova utilizes a 5881 based power output section wired triode configuration, and utilizes an original low-powered tweed twin output transformer built by the Triad company: the same company that supplied transformers for the original tweed series over 50 years ago. As the heart of the amp, this authentically reproduced output transformer gives the Nova it’s vintage voice, while the overdrive channel adds a twist of modern gain at the step of a footswitch.
