Has anyone put this bad boy up against any of the other boutique blackface builders?
I've watched it like 10 times, but still, it's a video, and it's not a comparison.
I have compared it to the Bruno Cowtipper. The Cowtipper is a great amp but I find it more smooth and polite than the EZG-50.
The EZG-50 has more of a vintage feel and sound but with a tighter bottom end and a richer gain structure than the Cowtipper. I also found the cowtipper to have a slightly compressed feel compared to the EZG-50. This translated to the Bruno being easier to play but it also felt less dynamic. The EZG-50 is more responsive and open sounding to me. Notes just popped out more for lack of a better term.
Regardless they are both great blackface style amps, but I think the EZG-50 has more of the vintage blackface vibe overall.
That is a great little write-up! I bet Tag is reading this and cutting himself.
Proud EZG 50 owner hear!! Cant compare it to a Bruno for I havent played one but what I can say is I really like the amp. I like it more than the Classic Reverb I had due to the wider bandwidth.
I also like the reverb in the Z much more.
The amp takes pedals very, very well.
I do miss the FET in the CR though.
The Z is a phenominal amp with a fair price.
Another keeper in the camp
Which model Cowtipper did you compare against?
i wish for a combo.
LOL! Good one!
Yeah, me too...if that amp was available in a 4x10 combo I'd be all over it...
Well lets be honest here...
I compared it against a Cowtipper 45.
As you should have.
I'd like to try this new Z one day, sounds like a winner from the specs/description/clips.
