Dr Z Z-Lux Combo - Black with Z-Wreck Grill

"The Z-LUX is the best amp I own!" - Joe Walsh

Dr Z has always said that his next design will be the best. Well, his "next"design is here. We are so proud to add the Z-LUX to our line. The Z-LUX absolutely delivers that big, warm vintage tone of a true hand-wired tube amp. It's a design that not only integrates favorite features from our entire line but also includes new ones of its own. Half/Full power switch, foot-switchable boost, master volume, reverb, tremolo, you name it - this amp has it. Every component was painstakingly selected to achieve the highest quality for both sound and durability.

The Z-LUX starts with the front end of a MAZ and uses a combination of hand-rolled Jupiter caps, Mallory 150s and classic orange drop caps specifically selected for each stage. We also kept the foot-switchable EQ bypass boost but softened it a bit for a smoother overdrive. The power section is driven by 6V6 power tubes switchable between 2 (20 watts) or 4 (40 watts) via a half-power switch, much like the Remedy. The tube driven tremolo will give you deep pulsating swells of rich tone you can't get from any pedal and when combined with the lush tube driven spring reverb, you won't be able to put the guitar down. The sound of this amp will push your creativity to the max!

We completely re-designed the build and makeup of our cab and were able to achieve stunning full-bodied sounds in a sturdy yet ultra-light combo cab weighing in at a back-saving 42 lbs! We also teamed up with Eminence to design a new 12" speaker. The new Z-12 is an American-voiced 50 watt speaker designed to complement the vibrant tones of Dr Z amps. Designing a cab and a speaker at the same time was the best idea. It allowed us to have complete control over the quality and make of every component truly achieving vintage tone for today.


The Z-LUX earns a Premier Gear Award and an excellent review from Premier Guitar Magazine.

Dr Z NOVA 1x12 LT Combo

"A dual-channel amp that has a vintage soul, yet with versatility to suit the most demanding players." - Dr. Z


The Dr. Z NOVA moves in a bit of a new direction for Dr. Z Amps. It is a twin-channel switching amp with a wonderfully rich clean channel, reminiscent of a low-powered tweed twin, featuring full bodied mid-range with great depth and harmonic content. Jumping over to the overdrive channel blends smooth, thick overdrive into the clean signal for a perfect blend of string articulation and fat distortion. By blending both signals you maintain all the clarity of your clean channel while adding endless, singing sustain for lead work and robust overdrive that envelops chords with no loss of definition.

The NOVA has a 5881 based power amp wired in triode configuration, and utilizes an original low-powered tweed twin output transformer built by the Triad company: the same company that supplied transformers for the original tweed series over 50 years ago. As the heart of the amp, this authentically reproduced output transformer gives the NOVA it's vintage voice, while the overdrive channel adds a twist of modern gain at the step of a footswitch.

We included a specifically tuned post-phase inverter master volume to the NOVA allowing it to supply raucous roar or pristine cleans at whisper volumes. The final feature is also a first for Dr. Z: we have partnered with Metropoulos Amplification to include their stellar Zero Loss FX Loop circuit as an OEM part included in the NOVA. This fantastic circuit is designed to work with 99.5% of rack and floor pedal effects with zero compromise in tone and operation, and will insure that even the longest and most complicated effects chain will sound great through the NOVA at any volume and gain level. The NOVA is equa
