The DB4 is the fourth col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Dr. Z and Brad Pais­ley. Pais­ley asked for a rich and warm sound­ing Bri­tish-voiced amp; Z started with a clean sheet of paper. The in­put of the amp uses a 5879 US-made pen­tode preamp tube – this was the tube se­lected by Les Paul to be used in his Gib­son GA-40 Les Paul amp. The full-bod­ied and silky tones of the 5879 are then driven into a ro­ta­tory fre­quency fil­ter. This con­trol se­lects be­tween jan­gly bril­liance, deep and full res­o­nant tones, and ev­ery­thing in-be­tween. To help fine-tune the hue of de­liv­ered fre­quency to the four EL84 out­put tubes is a cut con­trol; think of this as a tone con­trol for your out­put tubes. This orig­i­nal amp de­sign has its own voice – one that doesn’t sound like any EL84 amp you have ever heard. It will be of­fered as a head, a 1×12 ‘Clas­sic-Lite’ combo loaded with a Ce­lestion Al­nico Gold speaker, and a 2×12 ‘Blues­breaker’ combo loaded with two Ce­lestion Al­nico Blue speak­ers.
