The reason for the small and compact chassis of the original design was that Dr Z had a habit of finding and repurposing tubes, parts, and transformers anywhere he could find them. While doing so, he came across a few old Hammond reverb units that had been discontinued and thought he could find use for them. He used these original chassis and transformers to build a unique tube guitar amp that had its own voice. After selling a few hundred units he realized that it was time to contact some local manufacturers to have exclusive parts made for this design. He kept some aspects of the Hammond units like the materials used for the output transformer and the use of a global negative feedback loop the same, and tweaked the rest of the circuitry, including the phase inverter and the EQ network, to give it an exclusive and distinct sound. The success of this amp allowed the company to grow and establish its core principles: making distinctive designs, with simple features, at an affordable price.
