I just picked up a new Z Ghia head and 212 Fuchs cab this afternoon. Wow! The sounds I've been hearing in my head are real and they live in this amp! I tried it through a ZBest 212, my old Valvetech 212, and the Fuchs 212, and the Fuchs won. It really took on the character of the different speakers; with the Valvetech (red fangs) it was voxy, with the ZBest it was a bit more on the Marshall side. Sounded great with all of them, but the Fuchs was the winner for me. So thick and yet so clear! And I've never played an amp that reacted so well to the guitar volume. Just a great amp!
