Dr. Z Route 66 Pics

The Dr. Z Route 66 is the most amazing sounding Plexi style amp ever! It sports KT66 power tubes originally designed by Genelex. It's the creamy "MilkShake" thick tone made famous  heard on John Mayalls "Bluesbreaker" album featuring Eric Clapton (the "Beano Album" as it is known to many). Here's a little clip messing around with the Fulltone GT-500 set on Boost into the Soul Bender. Just trying to pull the fatness of the tone out with no particular song in mind so please bear with me. It sounds better towards the end. ;) Click here to listen

This is not a duplicate of the Marshall JTM-45, but completely original spin with new tonal end results. The "Route 66" has a EF-86 front-end. For those not familiar with this tube, it is a 9 pin pentode , offering incredible gain and input dynamics. It is normally used in high-end stereos, most often for its accurate transfer of input signal, balance, and headroom.

Here's some pics under the hood to check out this hand wired point-to-point work of tonal art...Also, check out the Celestion G12C Greenback Speakers in the black 2x12 Cabinet (pictured) as used in the new hand wired Jimi Hendrix JH100 Marshall Stack Amplifier and Marshall Vintage Modern Series Amps.

The amp features a deceptively simple tone stack, consisting of Volume, Bass, and Treble, which feeds a non-negative feedback Phase Inverter, for true harmonic content and full output tube dynamics. It has a GZ-34 Tube Rectifier to complete the round enveloped tone. The amp has piano-like clarity with endless sustain, even at low volumes. Its 32 watts truly sing when driven hard in a focused, thick distortion, with the tightest bass response you've ever heard.

The Route 66 received the first ever "Editors' Pick Award" from Guitar Player Magazine.

Here's what Mike Fuller of Fulltone Custom Effects had to say about the Route 66:

"Hey Doc,

When Jeff Jourard brought this Route 66 over I was semi-disinterested.....simply because, frankly, I've never played an amp made after 1971 that I could stand. So he plugs it in and $%#^.....immediately the jaws drop, and we start busting out old Strats, old Les Pauls, old SG/LP's ...didn't matter, they ALL sounded great, no, spectacular!. So much compression, sustain, harmonics, touch, AND when you turned down the guitar, that damned amp cleaned up without losing apparent volume to 50 fabulous shades of dirty to semi-dirty to clean.

Anyway, thanks for making the best New amp, period...certainly the Best amp made in at least the last 30 years, and one of the best amps I've ever heard!"
