OK, I used to have a Univalve and I thought it was cool. But I had jumped into that amp from Soldanos and Mesas and at that time I really didn't understand low wattage class A amps so I ended up getting rid of it. Lately as my tastes have changed all I've been playing are lower wattage amps and I'm sort of GASing for a Univalve again. A buddy of mine is playing Dr Z stuff and I dig his tone too. Last night I went to a local music store and played a Dr Z Galaxie head thru a Z-best 2x12. I've also played the Carmen Ghia (not for me) and a Route 66 (very cool). Also, the clips of the Z-28 on Dr Z's website sound amazing and also in the vein of what I'm looking for. The Galaxie was great too but as with all Dr Z stuff it was very loud. I would imagine that with any Z I'm probably looking at an Airbrake as well to get what I want out of it. Since my memory is a little fuzzy and I don't have a place to compare the two, I'm wondering if anyone has any direct comparison experience between the Univalve and the Z stuff. The clips on the THD website are virually all lead stuff. I'm wondering how the Univalve will compare in the crunchy rhythm area. Any help would be great!
