The Maz 18 Jr from Dr. Z Amps delivers rich singing tones from single coil pickups and sweet British crunch from humbuckers. It’s rockin’, classic tube amplifier tone has an old school attitude that comes alive under your fingers. Dial in tones ranging from clean chime to raw vintage drive.
Originally designed as a "grab-and-go" studio and small club amp, the Maz 18 Jr has made its way to some of the largest stages in the country. Don't confuse "18 Watts" with "weak and flabby". The Maz 18 will amaze you with its definition and headroom, all the way down to the low E... This all tube guitar amplifier has plenty of power for a single 12" speaker, but can easily provide an even bigger sound with external cabinets as well. Need to keep the volume down for smaller rooms or recording? Try the Maz 18 Jr with a Brake Lite Attenuator. It’s a great option to get the amp working around your sweet spot, rather than the other way around. On its own, the Maz Jr is great on smaller stages. Got a larger venue? Mic the Maz 18 and play away, because big amp tone and soul is all there. This is also a great amp for jazz guitarists, whether you're looking to replace a small vintage Fender Blackface amp or looking for an amp with enough complexity for fusion.
The Maz 18 Jr from Dr. Z Amps is a boutique tube guitar amplifier that every Strat or Tele player will love- But it's not just for single coil players. Humbuckers are right at home with the Maz 18 too. You get great drive sounds at higher volumes or the ability to use the Lo input for cleaner, classic Jazz-style humbucking tone. With a master volume and full EQ there is plenty of room for dialing in your desired tone. The "Cut" knob may be the most useful and versatile tone shaping tool on any guitar amp. Throughout its range, it produces a large variety of sounds to satisfy players using all guitars for most every style of music. The "Cut" knob is best used after the EQ is all set; turn it up for extra edge, turn it down for a more vintage sound.
The Dr Z Maz 18 has the perfect combination of front end drive and output tube distortion. It has a wonderful 3D reverb clean tone, matched with the sweetest top end response and tightest bottom end in a lower powered amp. All this has made the Maz 18 our most popular selling reverb combo to date.
