    So, what are the thoughts on this one?

    A Dr. Z take on the good old classic blackface tone according to Dr. Z.
    Anyone tried one?

    The EZG-50 isn't out yet. I don't think it will be until early to mid June if memory serves. Go over to the Z-Talk forum and ask there, a few guys have played one over there.

    The Galaxy is a Tweed Super clone.

    Right... Didn't think of the Z-talk forum... My bad!
    ThereĀ“s info there for those interested!

    Seems like it could be good though! :)

    Its real nice. I've played it twice. Real nice. Very loud and it has a very flexible tone stack. Its my favorite Z amp ever. To be clear...I haven't much liked other Z amps.

    I tried one a few months ago, and it is my favorite Dr.Z amp! It has a gorgeous clean tone, and a beautiful Reverb. Takes distortion/overdrive
    pedals very, very well. From other threads, the amp is sensitive to what speakers you plug it into. Check out the Dr. Z message board for lot's more info on the EZG-50.

    mine isnt here yet.. so I was just wondering about some opinions.

    Im planning on running it through an Egnater tourmaster 2X12 cab with Celestion Elite 80's... Hopefully that will be good for the head

    How loud is this? I saw it the other day, and it was bigger and heavier than I expected, but wondered if it's Blackface Deluxe loud, Super Reverb Loud or Twin loud.

    I have one, and love it....It is almost twin loud! Super thick fat and big tones....Like a mutant Fender BF on steroids ! It is the cleanest of the Z amps to my ears....Just a great amp with better , more flexable reverb. I am trying to get the time to put up a demo vid for the Dr.....Love it!

    Almost Twin loud. But it doesn't have to be loud to sound good. But if you want it clean and loud, it can do it.
