Reason for Sale

I'm hardly playing Live now, I can thin down to just the Bogner Goldfinger, so I have 2 amps surplus to requirements. I'm more interested in Guitars these days as well, the "Amp Fad" has waned :)

I have now added the Suhr Badger 30 to the Sale Page as of 10/06/19.

The Amps

Dr Z Maz 18 Non Reverb Head

Bought from Peach Guitars in 2016. (I fetched it in person)

Good demo of it and it's Reverb version Cousin.


Innards: 3x12AX7's 2xEL84's and 5AR4 Rectifier Valve.

Fantastic sounding single channel amp, cosmetically immaculate and great working order. It has been gigged and transported, but well looked after. It come in gorgeous Red Tolex.

This is the Non Reverb version which does put out a bit more gain than the reverb version. I'd say it does a tad more than AC/DC level gain. This amp is great as a clean pedal base as well.

The included Footswitch is a boost function. I have tried it but never used it for gigs, bit of a gimmick really as it boosts too much both gain and perceived volume and there is no regulation of it, still, it came with the amp, so it is included.

The amp does not need the switch anyway, there is a good amount of gain there, bung a few pedals in front for different flavours. The variation of tones from the Amp are a winner, this is mostly down the the "Cut" control on the front panel. Anecdotally noted for being able to go between Vox, Fender and Marshall tones. I can't vouch for the exact truth of that, but it covers tons of ground, it won't disappoint.

The clarity of the Amp is fantastic, even when pushed to massive overdrive, you can pick out every note of the chord. The EQ is very good on the amp. Some say these sound a little "brittle" but I wouldn't say it was too brittle.

This amp is 18 watts, but it is loud enough to break your ears, don't be fooled by that lowly 18 watts rating. These amps run quite hot too. The stock Valves did need replacing around 130 - 150 hours. I'm positive it was no less than that, but that is an estimate. The Jewel light Bulb did need to be replaced too at some point.

Not sure if the stock valves were not that good or whether I did something wrong like flick the switches up back to front and ended up turning the amp straight on, can't say!

New Valves from Karltone have done quite a few hours and gigs and the Amp has always performed well, not a noisy amp by any means. I used Karltone for the replacement valves and when I explained the amp to Karltone, they provided power valves more suited to a hot running amp.....Mine are: Plate Current 30................Transconductance 7.7.

Amp Comes with Roqsolid Padded Foam Cover which is in lovely condition.








Suhr Badger 30 Head, Mk 1 Version 

Bought in 2016 from Guitar Guitar.

This Amps is cosmetically immaculate and is in fantastic working order. It has been a very reliable gigging amp and has been taken care of very well as I always treat my gear with respect.

Single Channel 2XEL34 Power Valves, very loud, lovely tones, great power scaling feature, can get pretty quiet and saturated for playing at home. However, this amp has been used more at a volume it was intended for. Amp takes pedals very well and sounds great on edge of break up pushed with good O/D pedals.

As for Headroom, it can get loud and clean. With Humbuckers, at backline volume, it will start to break up slightly with Gain on 2, but stay clean and loud with Gain on 1 and Power and Drive up loud.

Single Coils will give more Headroom, obviously, but still can achieve plenty of gain when driven.

Plenty of great demos on Youtube of this amp.


Comes with it's own original Black Cover.
