Dr. Z Release DB4 Amplifier

Dr. Z Amplifiers have announced the DB4, a brand new amplifier designed in collaboration with Brad Paisley. Described as a "rich and warm sounding British-voiced amp", the DB4 utilises a 5879 U.S. made pentode preamp tube similar to the one found in the Gibson GA-40 Les Paul amplifier.

The DB4 will be offered as a head, 1x12 “Classic-Lite” combo loaded with a Celestion Alnico Gold, and 2x12 “Blues-breaker” combo loaded with two Celestion Alnico Blue speakers.
