Description
Up for sale, a Dr. Z Route 66 boutique tube amplifier head in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. This compact and intuitively designed head shows only light wear on the corners and a couple edges of the black basketweave tolex, and all functions work as they should with tubes that have a healthy glow and plenty of life left.

The Route 66 is an all original Dr. Z design based on the incredible KT-66 tube originally built by Genelex. This tube generates the “Milkshake Thick” tones, as heard on John Mayall’s “Bluesbreaker” album featuring Eric Clapton (the “Beano Album” as it is known to many). With that said, this is not a duplicate of the Marshall JTM-45, but a completely original spin with new tonal end results. The Route 66 has an EF-86 front-end, and for those not familiar with this tube, it is a 9 pin pentode that offers incredible gain and input dynamics. It is normally used in high-end stereos (and also the original Vox AC15), most often for its accurate transfer of input signal, balance, and headroom.

The Route 66 features a deceptively simple tone stack, consisting of Volume, Bass, and Treble, which feeds a non-negative feedback phase inverter, for true harmonic content and full output tube dynamics. The amp also boasts a GZ34 tube rectifier to complete the round, lush tone and give the amp that signature "sag." Even at low volumes, the amp has piano-like clarity with near endless sustain, and the Route 66's 32 watts truly sing when driven hard in a focused, thick distortion, with the tightest bass response you’ve ever heard.
