CURE112 B/ZW

Online

The CURE is an amp that takes Dr. Z Amps back to its roots. It is designed using the highest grade components, totally hand-built, and available at a very reasonable price.

The CURE uses Dr. Z's award-winning Z-LUX as its starting point, but simplifies this formula by forgoing reverb and tremolo, yet retains the rich 6V6 "American" voiced tone the Z-LUX is renowned for. At the heart and soul of the CURE is a vintage-voiced output transformer hand-wound by Triad Magnetics, the company responsible for the transformers in the classic "tweed" amps of the 1950s. Saturating the amp into smooth distortion, the CURE is reminiscent of the THERAPY amplifier, but in combo form. The CURE also features an effects loop, a full EQ with master volume, as well as a global output level control. It is housed in a compact, light-weight, yet resonant 112 Studio cab with a specially designed Eminence Z12 speaker (as featured in the Z-LUX combo) for maximum portability. Set your volume and master for desired clean or distortion then set the overall loudness with the Level control. A great grab-n-go package that will please even the most discerning tone aficionado, the CURE is as easy on the wallet as it is on your ears.

Couldn?t be happier. It does clean well. Using it for a jazz amp with a telecaster. Sounds awesome. Lots of control. Warm 6v6 tube rectified. I bought a TC electronic HOFmini and have only used it once, doesn?t seem to need it. Never owned a hand wired amp let alone played one before. There is a difference in quality here.

Clean,Clean, Clean. I love this amp, Cannot believe it is only 15 watts. No pedals needed, just plug in and play. An inexpensive way to make your friends jealous.

Not a bad sound out of Dr. Z's latest offering. Don't let the 15 watts fool you, this amp is loud. Great grab and go and keeps up with my drummer. Highly recommend!!
