Dr. Z Maz 38 Sr Reverb Head - Red, Tan Grille
The Dr. Z Maz 38 Sr had a very successful eight year production run before being upgraded and enhanced. 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.
The 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.
Its distortion is described as smooth-as-satin, and it is truly unique. Want to add even more depth to its already luscious tone? Crank on Dr. Z's specially designed Z-verb, and hear the biggest sounding reverb to ever reach your ears.
The Dr. Z MAZ-38 is a truly versatile amp for the working or studio musician. Whether your forte' is Blues, Country, Roots, or Rock, The MAZ 38 Senior will fit the bill.
