Dr. Z has got themselves another winner here with the Cure! So much goodness from this little amp! First off the price point is something many will love. Now USA boutique quality and tone is affordable in a small package. The Cure is voiced around an American-inspired tone giving you big bold cleans, sweet light breakup, all the way to a big classic rock overdrive tone. The control layout gives you full access to control the amp from the preamp, power section, and even another level control that acts like an attenuator/power scaling. You can really dial in exactly how you want this amp to behave. Then on top of that you have an EQ-bypass Boost with a level control to add in just the right amount of boost to your signal. Don't let the 15-watts fool you, it's a big and bold 15. It will work for most gig situations and its right around 30 lbs! The Cure is another hit from Dr. Z!

The CURE is an amp that takes Dr. Z Amps back to its roots. Built on our 30 year foundation of delivering excellent, professional-grade amplifiers, it is designed using the highest grade components, totally hand-built, and available at a very reasonable price.
The CURE uses our award-winning Z-LUX as it’s starting point, but simplifies this formula by forgoing reverb and tremolo, yet retains the rich 6V6 “American” voiced tone the Z-LUX is renowned for. At the heart and soul of the CURE is a vintage-voiced output transformer hand-wound by Triad Magnetics, the company responsible for the transformers in the classic “tweed” amps of the 1950s. Saturating the amp into smooth distortion, the CURE is reminiscent of our THERAPY amplifier but in combo form. The CURE also features an effects loop, a full EQ with master volume, as well as a global output level control. It is housed in our compact, light-weight, yet resonant 1×12 “Studio” cab with our specially designed Eminence Z12 speaker(as featured in the Z-LUX combo) for maximum portability. Set your volume and master for desired clean or distortion then set the overall loudness with the Level control. I have also included our Variable Boost footswitch for additional gain to take your lead playing over the top.
A great “grab-n-go” package that will please even the most discerning tone aficionado, the CURE is as easy on the wallet as it is on your ears.
