This symphony of tones, crafted by the fusion of cutting-edge technology and time-honoured craftsmanship, is the epitome of sonic alchemy.

Dive into the heart of the 38 NR Mk.

The symphony of options includes Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Master, and the ever-evolving Cut control, beckoning you to sculpt your tonal odyssey. Venture to the rear panel, replete with a trifecta of 4, 8, and 16 ohm speaker outputs, a 1/2 power switch that unveils a world of power tube compression, and a buffered effects loop. The inclusion of the EQ bypass function, harmoniously danceable with a footswitch, ushers in a transformative lead boost, effectively rendering the 38 NR Mk. II a dynamic 2-channel amplifier.

The beating heart of this auditory marvel lies in its tube complement, a symphony of sound-crafting components. Four cathode biased EL84s, three 12AX7s gracing the front end, and a 5AR4 rectifier fuse harmoniously to bestow an unprecedented 38 watts of raw power at your fingertips. Immerse yourself in the expanse of sound, where every note unfurls with unrivalled clarity, allowing your guitar to claim its rightful place at the forefront of any musical ensemble.

The MAZ 38 NR, an embodiment of sonic supremacy, has been etched into the annals of amplification history, revered for its authoritative voice capable of commanding stages from intimate barrooms to sprawling stadiums. The testament to this legacy is witnessed in the continued evolution of the MAZ 38 NR, now bestowed with the Mk. II designation, a testament to Dr. Z's tireless pursuit of perfection and his unwavering devotion to the needs of discerning musicians.

Prepare to traverse uncharted sonic landscapes with the new and more versatile voicing, a tapestry interwoven with pristine American cleans, the chiming embrace of British overdrive, and the exhilarating crunch of unadulterated hard rock, all ensconced within a single, harmonious package. The post-phase inverter master volume, painstakingly tuned to orchestrate your sonic narrative at any volume level, renders even the most delicate whispers as impactful as a roaring crescendo.

Marvel at the ultra-light cabinet, a masterpiece sculpted from imported Italian poplar, setting the stage for tonal purity. The introduction of the 1/2 Power Switch catapults the MAZ 38 NR Mk. II into a realm where it seamlessly transforms between the realms of the MAZ 38 NR and the MAZ 18 NR, a testament to its unparalleled adaptability.
