It's a misconception that electric guitarists just play to look cool. Really, these musicians are gear-headed nerds who love to make noise. Dr. Z— aka owner Mike Zaite — is no different. Since 1988, Zaite's tinkering has led to more than 20 styles of made-to-order guitar amps and accessories.
Guitar heroes such as country star Brad Paisley and Kent-native and Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, who plays a signature Z-Mas-ter ($3,399), a three-speaker re-creation of the 1959 Fender Bandmaster that Walsh played with James Gang, prove these amps are made for the stage.
"When I hear him play the 'Hotel California' solo through my amp,I can't tell you the smile on my face," says Zaite. drzamps.com
