Dr Z has always said that his next design will be the best.
Well, his "next” design is here. We are so proud to add the Z-LUX to our line.
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 our
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. Every component was painstakingly selected to achieve the highest quality
for both sound and durability.
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. The sound of this amp will push your creativity to the max!
We completely re-designed the build and makeup of our cab
and were able to achieve stunning full-bodied sounds in a sturdy yet
ultra-light combo cab weighing in at a back-saving 42 lbs! We also teamed up
with Eminence to design a new 12” speaker. The new Z-12 is an American-voiced
50 watt speaker designed to complement the vibrant tones of Dr Z amps.
Designing a cab and a speaker at the same time was the best idea. It allowed us
to have complete control over the quality and make of every component truly
achieving vintage tone for today.
