Dr. Z Carmen Ghia Head and 1x12 Cab in Custom Blackout at Humbucker Music

Everyone know that here at Humbucker Music we love Dr. Z Amplifiers. But there is one thing we might love more… Custom Dr. Z Amplifiers! This Custom Blackout Carmen Ghia Head and 1×12 Cab just made it’s way through the door and we are all every excited about how it turned out!

Some people will look at the two knobs (volume and tone) and the 18 watt power rating and wonder if the Carmen Ghia will be able to deliver the goods.  Of course, those of us more familiar with tube amp circuitry can attest that “less is more” applies to tube amps perhaps more than any other thing in the known universe.  If you fall into the former category, sit back and read a spell.  We’d like to educate you a sec if you’re up to it.  🙂
In our physical store, the Dr Z Ghia is an amp we love to put people behind as often as we can (don’t worry, we don’t sell our floor demo amps on the internet).  From the moment people start to play it, they can tell something more is going on.  While indeed a seemingly simple circuit, the Carmen Ghia produces very complex tones and is known for being very reactive to the player.  Play softer and get cleaner tones.  Play a bit harder and hear the gentle overdrive and saturation.. Bite into the strings with attitude and the amp will respond in kind!  This kind of quality makes an amp very fun and exciting to play.  You may drop into your music room, basement, or rehearsal space for a quick fifteen minute jam and find yourself tied up for hours.  It’s happened…
