Dr. Z Route 66
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

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,

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:
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!"
