The Maz 18 Jr Non-Reverb “NR” gives you more singing gain and less compression than the standard Maz 18, making it the perfect choice for any musical style where Reverb is not a necessity but rockin’, classic tube amplifier tone is. The Maz 18 Jr NR head has an old school attitude that comes alive under your fingers. Dial in tones ranging from clean chime to raw vintage drive. The Maz 18 NR delivers rich singing tones from single coil pickups and sweet British crunch from humbuckers.
Originally designed as a studio and small club amp, the Maz 18 Jr NR 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 and suonds great with a single 12" speaker, but can easily provide an variety of sounds when paired with a 2x10, 2x12, 4x10 or 4x12 guitar speaker cabinet as well. Need to keep the volume down for smaller rooms or recording? Try the Maz 18 Jr Non Reverb 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 NR 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- especially the Non Reverb version. 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 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. The back panel features a 4,8, and 16 ohm speaker outputs. An Effects Loop and foot switchable EQ bypass function is also standard. The foot switchable EQ bypass basically works as a stellar lead boost which effectively makes the Maz Jr 18 NR head into a 2 channel amp. A pair of cathode biased EL84 power tubes provide the heart of this amplifier, while three 12AX7 preamp tubes voice the front end. A 5AR4 rectifier tube is also standard. With 18 watts of pure, boutique tube amp tone at your fingertips, the Maz 18 Jr head delivers the perfect blend of front end grind and output tube sustain.
