The New Rig

Some followers of the blog were asking about when I would post a glamor shot of my new guitar rig — the Dr. Z Maz Senior 38 and the Tom Anderson Guitarworks Droptop. I had some time this week-end to get the rig polished and ready for the camera. Here is one of the shots I took today.

Awesome rig.

Dr. Z Maz 38 Senior

Introduction

I have an awesome new guitar. And I will post about the instrument soon. I also have a new rig. I am a very happy guitarist.

Dr. Z Maz 38 Senior Reverb

I went to Lauzon Music in Ottawa and I picked up a Dr. Z Maz 38 Senior Reverb head. The head is a special tenth anniversary edition and features a special plate on the top of the head.

Technical Details:

  • Power Output: 38 watts
  • Output Tubes: EL-84 (4)
  • Preamp Tubes: 12AX7 (4), 12AT7 (1)
  • Rectifier: GZ34 (1)
  • Controls: Reverb, Cut, Master, Bass, Mid, Treble, Volume
  • Color: Black
  • Dimensions: 19″ W, 9 3/4″ H, 9 1/2″ D
  • Weight: 22 lbs

Dr. Z  1×12 Speaker Cabinet

The speaker cabinet features a classic floating baffle design with a Celestion Vintage 30 12″ speaker. The speaker cabinet has a removable rear panel which allows closed back or open back operation.

  • Dimensions: 19 1/2″ H, 22 3/4″ W, 10 1/4″ D
  • Weight: 38 lbs

Summary

I’m still in shock. I spent over six hours playing this rig today. The tone of this amp is the best that I have ever heard. It did not take long to find the sweet spot and the amp and the guitar came alive. It was electric.

The Maz 38 is a very loud amp so an attenuator is highly recommended if you want to play at softer volume levels.
