Dr. Z Jetta Head, Blackout
The Dr. Z Jetta is now available in a head format!
Let us tell you about the Dr. Z Jetta - The latest from the minds at Dr. Z Amplifiers. Every now and then someone will come out with a no-brainer. Some guitar that should be selling for $2500 will hit the market for $1700, or some $200 pedal will come out and it's only $119. It happens. Well, the Dr. Z Jetta is one of those things. A 30 watt, all tube, handwired, all USA made head for $1499.
Despite the incredible price and all USA, all tube handmade construction, no cheap components or transformers are used in the Jetta. Jupiter caps, Heyboer power transformer, and Triad output transformers. We are certain this is just an introductory price (much like the Dr. Z Cure when it first came out) and is sure to go up after this initial offering. Seriously... This one is a no-brainer.
So how does it sound?
A great deal of time was spend tweaking this design that's loosely based on the 60's Ampeg Jet and Reverberocket combos. The Jetta was engineered to provide an articulate and detailed platform for any guitar, be it vintage single coil or hotrodded humbucker. Starting with a pair of 7591 power tubes at its heart, the Jetta's signature sound is one of near hi-fi accuracy with a soundstage far larger than its small package would indicate. The circuit topology provides a streamlined, effective signal path from guitar to speaker: a volume knob to adjust the gain and saturation, a single tone knob to quickly adjust for any guitar you plug in, and an attenuator-like master volume knob provides control at any volume level, with no loss of tonal integrity, detail, or bandwidth. Don’t let the simplicity of the Dr. Z Jetta fool you. Plug in a guitar and you won't find yourself nudging the tone knob much shy of noon to find that sweet spot. Trust us, we have tried it; sonic bliss is a simple recipe!
The Jetta's hefty 30 watt output provides plenty of clean headroom for the player with even the most robust pedalboard, yet it’s able to grind out thick overdrive at a controllable volume level. For those players that prefer achieve tube distortion from the Jetta, Dr. Z has included the stellar Metro Zero-Loss FX loop circuit to retain signal integrity through any path of modulation, delay, or reverb effects.
