Introducing the DR Z 35th Anniversary Carmen Ghia 1x10" Combo! Celebrating three and a half decades of excellence in the music industry, Dr. Z proudly presents the Carmen Ghia, a legendary amplifier design that has stood the test of time. From its initial release under the Dr. Z banner in 1988, this remarkable combo has become an iconic cornerstone of our product lineup. Through the years, it has solidified the Dr. Z name as a force to be reckoned with, earning a place amongst music's greatest amplifiers, both in the past and for generations to come. Now, in honour of our 35th anniversary, we bring you a special edition that encompasses all the magic of the original Carmen Ghia, combined with exciting new features.

In an era dominated by the relentless pursuit of "more," the Carmen Ghia dared to challenge convention. During the company's early years, Dr. Z would showcase the seemingly diminutive 18-watt amp at guitar shows across Ohio. While the market clamoured for higher wattages, multiple channels, and complex signal routeing, the Carmen Ghia stood apart with its elegant simplicity. With just two knobs and a single channel, it offered a pure, hand-wired signal path that captivated musicians and enthusiasts alike. Surprisingly, it was not the general public, but fellow vendors - jaded from years of exposure to countless amplifiers - who were enthralled by the Carmen Ghia's mesmerising sound. They recognised its ability to showcase the unique voice and character of the guitars they were selling, making it the perfect companion for their displays. This unexpected acclaim solidified Dr. Z's belief in the power of volume and tone, affirming that sometimes, less is indeed more.

Now, in 2023, we present the 35th Anniversary edition of the Carmen Ghia, faithfully handcrafted to the exact specifications that made it a legend. Every amplifier is meticulously assembled by our skilled artisans in our Cleveland, OH workshop, ensuring unparalleled craftsmanship and attention to detail. This year, we've added an exciting new feature: a post-phase inverter master volume (PPIMV). Carefully integrated into the circuit, the PPIMV allows for versatile low-volume overdrive, while completely bypassing the signal path at its maximum setting. This ingenious addition gives you even more control over your sound, allowing you to explore a range of tonal possibilities. Paired with our lightweight 1x10 cabinet, equipped with the remarkable WGS Veteran 30 10" speaker - a historic collaboration between Dr. Z and WGS - it delivers a harmonious blend of simplicity and sophistication. With its user-friendly interface and easy-to-dial-in settings, this amplifier is an ideal choice for intimate gigs, studio sessions, prayer/worship use, and at-home practice.

To commemorate our 35th anniversary, each Ghia 1x10 combo proudly bears a special 35th Anniversary commemorative badge on its distinctive grill cloth, signifying its exclusive status. Furthermore, to attest to the authenticity and originality of this limited edition amplifier, we have included a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity from the brilliant mind behind Dr. Z amplifiers himself, Mike Zaite, affectionately known as Dr.Z. As a testament to our commitment to quality and tonal excellence, we have carefully hand-selected our favorite EL84 variant, the NOS 6n14n power tubes, which have been meticulously matched and tested in our workshop. This ensures unparalleled rugged reliability and ensures that your Carmen Ghia will deliver rich, expressive tones for many years to come.

Join us in celebrating 35 years of Dr. Z's unwavering dedication to crafting amplifiers that redefine what's possible in the world of music. The 35th Anniversary Carmen Ghia 1x10" Combo is a timeless masterpiece, embodying the essence of pure, uncompromising tone, and serving as a testament to the enduring legacy of Dr. Z. Experience the magic for yourself and own a piece of history. Elevate your playing to new heights with an amplifier that transcends boundaries and inspires creativity. Order your limited edition Carmen Ghia today and become part of the Dr. Z family!
