From Dr. Z:
The all new MKII! We have decided to add something a little different to this model to distinguish it from the rest of the MAZ line: a half power switch, effectively giving the player both the sound of the MAZ 38 NR and the MAZ 18 NR in one package.
On top of the half power switch, the MAZ 38 NR Mk. II has all of the other enhancement of the Mk. II line. Improved EQ voicing, tweaked gain staging, a post-phase inverter master volume (PPIMV) for whisper-quiet volumes, a buffered effects loop for total clarity in driving even longest effects chain, and our ultra-lite imported poplar cabinet. The MAZ 38 NR Mk. II is the only MAZ amp to include this special half power circuit, which gives this amp the tonal versatility of the MAZ 18 NR with the additional headroom of the MAZ 38 NR.
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 will fit the bill.
The front panel features Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, 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.
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
-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.
