This is a true. My Carmen Ghia is actually worth more now used than what I originally paid for it. :O)

Well, I briefly had a Carmen Ghia but I returned it. It just did not "do it" for me. I am not at all saying it did not sound good. I have built both the 18 watt clone and a Spitfire clone and prefer them to the GC but that is just me. Mike Zaite's amplifiers have incredible re-sale value so if you buy one you can re-sell and won't lose any money. If you try to clone it you won't get squat for it. So I say, If you want a Dr. Z, just buy one. Now, if you want a vintage Marshall 18 watt and don't have $8000.00 for a "real one" then build one for WAY less. That makes sense to me. Heck, I saw a Spitfire on e-Bay the other day for $1500.00, I had less than $400.00 in mine and I used Dave West trannies and it is awesome! Now that amp "does it" for me! Bruce

judging the look of that, drawing up a schematic yourself shouldn't be *that* hard... Just don't post it anywhere

Find a schematic of the Hammond Organ reverb amplifier that uses EL84's. That will get you the power supply, PI, and power amp configuration.
Experiment with different preamps & come up with your own favorite. You'll be an original. (Kinda)

I've worked on a few DR. Z amps and can tell you that many of you guys have probably built an amp or two VERY VERY similar to many of his amps but I bet you haven't spent the serious time Mike probably has refining and tweaking that last 5% of the amp!
His reverb mix scheme is a little different that what you might expect to see, especialy if you are use to Fender reverb, but other then that,... I think it's just plain hard work on Dr. Z's part to get that last 5%!!
