Dr. Z Introduces the Z-LUX Amp

May 7, 2015
Dr Z has always said that his next design will be the best. Well, his “next” design is here.
 
The Z-LUX absolutely delivers that big, warm vintage tone of a true hand-wired tube amp. It’s a design that not only integrates favorite features from the entire line but also includes new ones of its own. Half/Full power switch, foot-switchable boost, master volume, reverb, tremolo, you name it...this amp has it.
 
Check out the demo: 
 
 
The Z-LUX starts with the front end of a MAZ and uses a combination of hand-rolled Jupiter caps, Mallory 150s and classic orange drop caps specifically selected for each stage. We also kept the foot-switchable EQ bypass boost but softened it a bit for a smoother overdrive. The power section is driven by 6V6 power tubes switchable between 2 (20 watts) or 4 (40 watts) via a half-power switch, much like the Remedy.
 
The tube driven tremolo will give you deep pulsating swells of rich tone you can’t get from any pedal and when combined with the lush tube driven spring reverb...you won’t be able to put the guitar down.

By completely re-designing the build and makeup of the cab, the Z-LUX offers full-bodied sounds in a sturdy yet ultra-light combo cab weighing in at a back-saving 42 lbs! Eminence also designed the new 12” speaker. The new Z-12 is an American-voiced 50 watt speaker designed to complement the vibrant tones of Dr Z amps.
