The wait is finally over… the EZG-50 is here! The EZG-50 has a very definitive 6L6 clean sound. Whether you are lusting after the classic “El Mocambo” tone, looking to surf the big waves, or want twang straight out of Bakersfield. The EZG-50 will satisfy the most discriminating blackface tone seeker. This is a sound that has been missing in the Z line up until now.
Much time and care was taken in the development of the EZG-50. The seed of the amp came from a new 6L6 output transformer designed for Z Amps by Ken Fischer. The output transformer has a very unique impedance not used by other American amp makers. This is one of the key factors to the EZG-50s sound.
NOS Allen Bradley carbon comp resistors are used in all critical tone positions of the EZG-50 circuit. These classic resistors add a warmth and depth to the tone that only they can give.
The EZG-50 features a 2 knob all tube reverb. The Dwell and Mix controls give you full authority over your reverb needs. Anything from a subtle tail on the note to a full-on surf assault is at your command. You also get a full EQ and a Pre and Post master volume.
Around back you’ll find 16, 8, and 4 ohm speaker outs to accommodate any cabinet.
With 50 watts of clean power, 2 knob reverb, and a tube rectifier, the EZG-50 is the blackface head that never was…ala Dr Z!
