Featured Amp: CURE


The CURE is truly a players’ amplifier. Stunning hand-wired tones ranging from blackface sparkle to grinding overdrive with seemingly endless sustain, the CURE is a grab-n-go amp with a small footprint but a massive tonal signature.

Cure Back

Outfitted with Eminence’s exclusive Z12 speaker(as seen in the award-winning Z-LUX), the CURE weighs only 33 lbs. and comes with a variable boost footswitch and effects loop.

Using a paper bobbin Triad output transformer manufactured in the US, the CURE is assembled and wired in Cleveland, OH and warrantied by Dr. Z Amplification when purchased by an authorized Dr. Z dealer. The CURE is reasonably priced at $1399 USD.

EMS “Bluesbreaker” Combo

The new EMS is now in a classic JTM-style “Bluesbreaker” 2×12 cabinet. Fitted with two Celestion Greenbacks, count on the ultimate in classic British gain. From “Beano” to “Back In Black,” the EMS covers it via two gain options, a “touch” response switch, and a switchable tube or solid state rectifier.
