General Information

The Maz 38 is one of Dr Z’s most enduring designs.  It is the perfect combination of sound and power.  4 EL84s with no negative feedback give you a wide pallet to work from.  The 38 has enough clean headroom to make for a great pedal platform and gives up the goods for a great drive sound at reasonable levels.  The 38 can satisfy many different styles and playing approaches.  You are able to dial in mid 60s blackface sounds as well as UK flavored chime.  The Dr. Z MAZ-38 is a truly versatile amp for the working or studio musician. Whether your forte’ is Blues, Country, Roots, or Rock, The MAZ 38 Senior will fit the bill.

The front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Reverb, Cut, and Master. The back panel features a 4,8, and 16 ohm speaker out. An effects loop and our EQ bypass function is also standard.  The footswitchable EQ bypass gives a great lead boost which effectively makes the 38 a 2 channel amp. The 38 is powered by a quartet of cathode biased EL84s and a 5AR4 rectifier.

MAZ 38 MK.II

The MAZ 38 has become a classic amplifier renown for it’s powerful voicing, enough to hold it’s own on any stage, barroom to stadium. Over the year, Dr. Z has listened to his customers and has updated the MAZ 38 to the new, even more versatile Mk.II designation. This includes:

-New, versatile voicing providing pristine American cleans, chiming British overdrive, and juicy hard rock crunch in one package.

-Specifically tuned post-phase inverter master volume allows you dial in your tone at any volume, down to whisper quiet.

-Ultra-light cabinet made from imported Italian poplar (2×12 not included).

-Improved spring reverb for subtle richness or splashy surf tones.

-Buffered effects loop for seamless, transparent integration with your pedalboard.

-Variable boost footswitch is included, providing anywhere from a small bump in volume to all-out, singing distortion.
