Ceriatone Muschle$$ DZ 30 30-watt Amp Head (DZ30)
The Dizzy 30 is a Custom-built Ceriatone tribute to the wonderful Matchless DC30 boutique guitar amplifier. The cleans are spanky and articulate and very touch sensitive. It has very smooth breakup and a wonderful gainy crunch. This amp, though not a one-trick pony. The half-power setting doesn't sound thin or anemic, and the full power sounds...well simply incredible.
This is the amplifier that changed the amp world. The DC-30 was the first Matchless design and still leads their lineup. Thirty very conservatively rated watts from a quartet of EL-84’s, through two channels, each with unique voicing and tone control layouts, produce a world of tone choices. True “Class A” configuration gives rich, complex harmonics whether played clean, mildly overdriven, or with all out power tube saturation. This means you should sound great in any situation, in any music style.
A long list of musician designed features includes: highly interactive tone controls and circuitries unique to each channel, bypassable master volume, individual channel effects loops, cut control for high frequency shaping, high and low (30 or 15 watt) power settings, selectable output impedance and phase inverter switches allow the use of additional speaker cabinets or amps in-phase with the DC-30.
The preamp sections are based on a layout of two 12AX7's in Channel 1 and one EF86 in Channel 2. The two 12AX7's in Channel 1 create a parallel-triode circuit with interactive bass and treble. The one EF86 in Channel 2 consists of a high-gain pentode coupled to a six-position tone switch. Outright benefits include quick dial-in of new tones and an easy return to the settings you prefer. Also "high treble" cut control, master volume, with a bypass feature that offers flexible control of the power amp section. The power amp is fed by a 12AX7 phase inverter, which drives four EL84 power tubes. The rectifier circuit gives you great control using one GZ34 for a quick attack and a smooth, round response. Other professional features include a passive effects loop, half power-mode switch (a conservative 30 watts switching to 15 watts), output impedance selector (4, 8, 16 ohms) and a speaker phase-reverse switch.
