2x12 Interstate (2x12" Dr Z® Z Best V30)

2x12 Interstate, the Helix model of a 2x12" Dr Z® Z Best V30

The Z Best 2×12 closed back cab is an animal all its own. We have utilized a Theile Ported design which allows us to dial in the full frequency range of the guitar. Low end is determined by the port width, mid response by the shelf depth, and top end by choice of speakers. Placed vertically, the Z Best delivers a tuned, focused sound yet has the airy qualities associated with open back cabs due to the front port. When placed horizontally, you pick up more low end as the front port is then coupled with the floor. This is a long throw cabinet that will get the sound to the back of the room.

The cabinet modeled here is loaded with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers.

Killer Cleans

I just got my strat upgraded with Duncan SSL-1 pickups, and this patch is just amazing for it. Beautiful cleans and some optional Tube Screamer and Tape Echo to get you going.

Killer Reverb

Member Goo Fighters of The Gear Page had this cool suggestion, so I tested it on a patch and liked it thru headphones.It's an interesting method of stacking reverbs to get different ambient effects.

Lap Steel

Cool lap steel tone for country western or Hawaiian music. Sorry about the single coil hum in the demo, had trouble getting rid of it completely, even with the Horizon gate engaged.
