MAZ 18 NR MK.II
The Dr Z Maz 18 NR is one of the best value hand wired amps on the planet, crafted in Cleveland, Ohio, the Maz 18 brings an old school attitude and monster tones. The MKII takes the old spec and adds a few new features to make this the ultimate grab and go studio/stage amp.
Loaded with two NOS Russian Mil-Spec 6N14N output tubes, three 12AX7 preamp tubes and a 5AR4 rectifier tube you can dial in clean chimey tones or raw vintage drive. The NR delivers rich singing tones from single coils and sweet British crunch from humbuckers. With a revised master volume circuit you can dial in your tone at any volume, even down to whisper quiet while the new buffered effects loop is another top feature of the MKII.
The Maz front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Master, and the ever versatile Cut control. Think of the Cut as a tone knob for the output tubes, it offers you even more control over your tone. With 18 watts at your fingertips you can get that perfect blend of front end grind and output tube sustain, its what makes the Maz 18 NR such a popular amp with working players.
The most popular line in the Dr Z range, the Maz series is crafted from Italian Poplar, is ultra-light and comes complete with variable boost footswitch, perfect for adding some flavour to your tone. This amp is the ultimate tonal powerhouse.
