Dr. Z Releases Maz 8 Amp

The Maz 8 is a full featured 8-watt amp that is designed to give you an incredible range of shimmering cleans to full-on rock action at reasonable volume levels.

Cleveland, OH (October 17, 2011) -- Based on the modern day classic Maz 18 platform, the Maz 8 is a full featured 8-watt amp that is designed to give you an incredible range of shimmering cleans to full-on rock action at reasonable volume levels.

The single EL84 output section can be run in Pentode or Triode mode. In Pentode mode you get the sonic signature of the Maz 18. Dr. Z says the pentode setting gives you plenty of dynamic range for clean country picking to grinding riff rock bliss that can be taken a step further with footswitchable EQ bypass function that gives you a gain boost. The Maz 8 takes on a much different dialect in triode mode with more of a vintage feel and sound. In triode, the volume level drops back and the tone fattens up. Dr. Z says kicking on the EQ bypass in triode mode is well-voiced for slide guitar.

The front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Reverb, Master, and Cut, which is described as a Tone control for the output section. The back panel features a 4, 8, and 16 ohm speaker out. An effects loop and EQ bypass are standard. The back panel also has the pentode/triode switch. The Maz 8 is available as a head, 2x10, and 1x12 combo. The 1x12 comes standard with a Celestion Blue speaker, and is available in a new smaller 1x12 Studio combo cab or the standard size 1x12.
