RRP: $2,899 (head) / $3,449 (1x12-inch combo) / $4,549 (2x12-inch combo) Xinc Au­dio | xin­cau­dio.com.au The DB4 is the fourth col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Dr. Z and Brad Pais­ley. Pais­ley asked for a rich and warm sound­ing Bri­tish-voiced amp, so Z started with a clean sheet of pa­per. The in­put of the amp uses a US-made NOS 5879 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 silky tones of the 5879 are then driven into a ro­ta­tory fre­quency fil­ter. This con­trol se­lects ev­ery­thing from jan­gly bril­liance to deep and full res­o­nant tones, and ev­ery­thing in-be­tween. To help ad­just 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’s of­fered as a head, 1×12-inch Clas­sic-Lite combo loaded with a Ce­lestion Al­nico Gold speak­ers, and a 2×12-inch Blues­breaker combo loaded with two Ce­lestion Al­nico Blue speak­ers.
