The CURE takes a page from the Z-Lux’s award-winning design and pulls glassy American cleans and robust tweed-like drive from a pair of 6V6s. Housed in the ultra-light, ultra-resonant Studio 1×12 cab, it comes in at only 33 lbs. and boast a much bigger sound than it’s compact package suggests.
The CURE’S Level control is a unique feature on this design, and controls the overall output volume without lowering the headroom of the amp. Set the Master high and the Volume low for shimmering cleans, then adjust the Level to taste, or crank it up to 10 and bring the Level down for juicy overdrive at whisper quiet volumes.
At the heart of the CURE is a hand-wound Triad Magnetics output transformer, as found in the classic 50’s tweed amps, exclusive to this Dr. Z design. Never one to skimp on quality, the CURE is hand-wired at Dr. Z using the best components available, all at the low 2017 introductory price of $1299.
Enjoy some Dr. Z swag when you purchase a DB4 “Bluesbreaker” 2×12 combo. Brad and I wanted to include a little gift to go with the British vintage tones of the DB4. The classic wooden-handle umbrella and can of Earl Grey Supreme Tea are based on one of my favorite Beatles record covers: Beatles ‘65. Enjoy!
Guitar Player Magazine has selected the DB4 for their 2016 Hall Of Fame! This is the second consecutive year we have been rewarded this honor. Be sure to stop by a Dr. Z dealer and see what some say is the “best sound ever…seriously!” The legend has already begun to spread…
