I just bought one, and immediately put my loved, though very heavy, Mesa Mark IV up for sale. This meets all my practice and gig needs, in one tiny little package! And, I will save a ton in chiropractic bills for no longer having to haul around a pound-per-watt archaic design. I play jazz, and what I want is a clean sound with lots of dynamic range. This amp has it. It gets a very nice dirty sound with the gain way up, if you want that. I play with gain at about 60%, and there it has a warm vintage clean sound with a smooth transition into dirty at the highest dynamics. Note, though, that you don't get 200 watts of clean from this amp. Maybe 40-80 watts, before the warm distortion kicks in. But, that's a real 40-80 watts, which is way more than I need for any gig I'll ever play.

Guess I was expecting to much? It's a very durable amp but to me the amp lacks tone since the treble and bass controls are on the knob control. The power doesn't seem to be near 200 watts since I have a 30 watt tube amp from GC that is louder than this amp. Plugging the amp into a 2-12 or 4-12 didn't seem to help this amp much. Guitar center does offer better potable tube amps that are louder and only rated at 30 watts. The amp cannot sound good with any distortion pedal, which is a shame because I own and tried 30 pedals. Unfortunately not one sounded good through the amp? If you want a basic solid state no frills guitar amp that has some power, this amp may right for you.

This little amp is beastly for it's size.

By Caveman

from Smithfield, NC

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

When I first saw this amp, I thought it was a joke. I plugged in a Fat Strat with humbuckers and a Boss ME-50 Multi Effect and I was completely blown away by the size to sound ratio. It is a solid state amp, but the response is articulate and highly dynamic. With the right pedal, go from jazzy clean to assblasting high gain deathmetal. The amp itself is rated at 200 watts, but how can it push such volume with a small speaker? It borrows from the home theater industry. Small speakers and large magnets coupled with sonic science. Believe me, jaws will drop to the floor once this thng goes to a gig. Have a bad back? Need a practice amp that sounds HUGE? Tired of lugging around heavy combos and stacks for small bar gigs? BUY THIS AMP NOW!! Your wallet and your back will thank you.

LOUD

By Jim P.

from Chicago, IL

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

If you need something cheap for onstage this is IT!! I haven't bought it yet but playing it at the local guitar center I was blown away. Unless you have pedals, you probably won't want to use it for metal, but for the blues or rock, TURN IT UP! The best part is, even though the amp itself is loud, it gets even louder (and gets more clean headroom) when you plug it into an extension cabinet. I wouldn't want to run it too high for too long just by it self because it feels like it's going to destroy itself, but if you have an extra plug-in in the back of a cabinet that you can use then by all means, plug it in and make it loud! I can't wait to get this and be able to make people jump from shock when they hear that big of a sound come out of that small of an amp. A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY GUITARIST!

This amp is great! I'm and old school big amp kinda guy and this amp made a believer out of me. Coupled with my Vox Tone Lab it's all I gig with now. I won't waste a lot of space trying to sell it. All I can say is try it and you'll buy it!

ZT Amp's Lunchbox

By Drake

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

I just got this amplifier two days ago and I can already form my entire opinion on it. Great Amp! It is crystal clear. There are only a few knobs to deal with and they are simple knobs to learn. The gain knob hardly distorts, but I'm not complaining about that because I like using my pedals. The only one thing I can complain about is that when ever I turn it off, it makes a loud tick noise, but I don't think that is too big of a problem. Thanks for reading. I hope this helps

just perfect responce

By David

from Estill, SC

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

Played with some old former pro's like myself yesterday. They all laughed at my lunchbox. After the playing started the jaws began dropping. This amp just cuts through...I had to turn DOWN! It seems that the frequency response of this amp is exactly where the guitar lives. It makes the guitar sound exactly like a guitar...I don't know how else to put it. It has Steven Stills/ Neil Young/ Buffalo Springfield tone. You CAN'T get a bad tone! I am going down to Guitar Center today to pick up a second one for stereo. I love this amp!

Power from solidstate seems to lack tone?

Tiny amp. HUGE sound.

By D. Waller

from Long Island, New York

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

I've been hearing about this amp for a few months - under 10 pounds, 200 watts. I had to try it. I went to the local GC and plugged in. Loud, relatively clean - this ain't a Mesa or Marshall by any stretch. But I use a POD XT Live through it, and it sounds massive. Even better through my 2x12" cabinet. I want another one so I can run the POD in stereo, and the price point may let me do that before too long. Try the Lunchbox. It'll eat your amp's lunch.

Okay for Clean stuff...

By Donny Payjack

from Austin, Texas

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

Tried it out at GC the other day... seems fairly loud, but it is all clean... there's a gain knob but it doesn't really provide anything more than a subtle overdrive. If you want rock guitar tones you'll need to use pedals with it.

Don't try it, cause you WILL buy it...

By Ric

from Vista San Diego), California

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

I headed over to Guitar Center after work yesterday, to see if they had a Roland BA330 battery powered P.A. I could test out. They had not even heard of them yet and were as curious about it's claimed efficiency as I was... BUT, they did have another piece of technology that sparked my interest. Introducing the ZT Lunchbox: http://www.ztamplifiers.com/products/lunchbox.html It's a 200 watt musical instrument combo amplifier in a cabinet the size of a lunchbox. I started jamming through it with some space aged looking axe they had on display close by. Then, one at a time I tried a Telecaster, Stratocaster and a Les Paul Standard. I played Dust in the Wind, Zep's Rock 'n Roll, House of the Rising Sun and Maybelle Carter's Carter Scratch Wildwood Flower to test the dynamics and articulation of the Lunchbox. Then for the ultimate test, I went out to my car and brought my Ovation Applause UAE20 acoustic/electric soprano ukulele inside and played Sophisticated Hula and Hanale Moon. That really drew a crowd. Several of the employees grabbed ukes of the wall and asked me to teach them the basics (Guitar Center is starting to carry severalmodels of ukuleles locally). I showed them the relationship, where the uke is like putting a capo on the 5th fret of a guitar - half of them started jamming instantly with that knowledge. Then I explained the reentrant octave tuning of the first string, followed by showing them several vamp progressions. This tiny amp will hold it's own with much larger 65 watt combos on a stage. If you ever need an amp to sit in with a band for a couple of songs, this is the ticket. The Gain is used to control the clarity and crunch and the Volume is used to control the sound level. The Tone is subtle and varies the bass and treble balance slightly. The Ambience is like a mild Reverb. There is a Speaker Out and a Speaker On/Off switch, which allows you to use several combinations of internal and external speakers. There's also a 1/4" headphone output with it's own volume control, for headphones or as a send to the P.A.. A 1/8" stereo input can be used to play music from an I-Pod or other stereo device. This also is a great setup for traveling. At 9.5 pounds, it won't take a lot away from your baggage weight limit. It has a switch on the back above the AC power plug for 115 volt/230 volt power, which is ideal for my travels to the Philippines and other countries where the higher voltage is standard. The small size won't take up much of the luggage space, either. Don't just take my word for it, get out and try one! Ric

By Cesar I Torres

from Miami,FL

Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

A friend bought this item and showed it to me, I liked what I saw and heard so I decided to buy one. I am very pleased with this little amp, it has incredible sound, it's light to carry compared to my other amp that is very heavy to carry. I am very happy with my purchase and recommended to anyone that is looking for great sound and ease to carry.

    Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I was tired of schlepping my original 65 Blackface Deluxe Reverb, so I tried this beast in Guitar Center and immediately bought the amp... It really sounded quite close to the Deluxe with less bottom end... So I contacted the manufacturer to get the Extension Cabinet - WOW... I have been using this amp as my GIG amp. I have used this amp, with the extension cab, in a 5 piece Nashville Country Group, a 7 piece Memphis R&B Group, and even in a Trio setting... I have NEVER run out of headroom or TONE... Amazing - and the pair fit in my small "roller" suitcase - snicker... Everyone always laughs until I turn it ON... Then they all want to know "WHAT IS THAT"...

    Do not buy this amp....

    By jay egeler

    from Jackson, Michigan

    Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

    Do not buy this amp if you don't want to blow your mind. Do not buy this amp if you don't want to carry around a 1000lb. tone in a 10lb. package. Do not buy this amp if you don't want to be the guy with 200 watts of power in the palm of your hand. Do not buy this amp if you don't want to be laughed out of the gig or practice until you turn it on and smile as their jaws drop and they wipe the saliva off their chins. Do not buy this amp if you don't want to be able to have your cake and eat it to. I have played or owned many amps and always been on that neverending tone search. Along with the many different situations I perform in, having an amp that can practically do it all is hard to find. I have for over 2 months run it though it's paces and can't say enough. My bigger gigs I'll use my Podxt Live, but for now I'm just using a Zoom MS50g along with a selection of guitars, Tele,Strat,Reverend,Parker Deluxe,PRS. This amp really brings the character of each alive. This weekend I ran my Strat with the Zoom and my Tritonle keyboard with a A/B splitter in a bar band and killed. My favorite run and go rig, is my Parker Deluxe, the Zoom MS50g and the Lunchbox. Folks I don't care how many amps you have or not, you have to have this one in your collection. This is a tool not a toy. This is of course you do not want to be the coolest dude on the stage.

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Priorities. If size to volume ration is yours, then this is it. Works with modeling or straight into amp if you are using single coils and just need a little grind. Tele sounds fine. Big sound for the size. Puts out about the volume of a 20watt tube amp.One unanticipated drawback is the limited extension cab options. You can get theirs for a reasonable price, but your probably looking at a 4 x12 otherwise to cover that 200w rating.
      PICK IT UP USED.
      If tone to size ratio is your priority maybe for $500 you could do better for an additional 15 lb for a 20 watt tube amp.

      Great value good for rehearsal or live

      By Nigel

      from Ventura CA

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I got this in a Guitar Center sale for $175 and at that price it was too good not to get. I use a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe but didn't want to have to keep lugging that to band practice. The only reason I only gave it 4 stars was that I really need to use my Boss ME-70 multifx pedal modeling to get it to sound like a tube amp when I rehearse. But it does it so well. I am sure it would work great with any modeler. It is 5 stars for the value at the price I paid. I have to have the volume backed off or it would be too loud for rehearsal so I know I could use it live as a backup amp. It brought a smile to the faces of my bandmates when I first showed up with it but once they heard it they were amazed how capable it is. I have not regrets about getting this amp.

      Geat amp!

      By George

      from New York, NY

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I just used it in rehearsal with a jazz quartet (acoustic bass, drums, sax, and my semi hollow body guitar). Used with just a Holy Grail Nano reverb pedal for a little bit of reverb. Lovely clear sound. Deep enough bass too (not what I expected from this size at all)! I am happy with it. Fits in a shoulder bag easily, though my shoulders were still a bit sore from carying that and my guitar around the city for about an hour including trip there, to another session, than back home. Well worth it though. If I had a car I would probably use a bigger amp just for the added tone, but this is perfect for inner city traveling.

      The Amp That Conquered Mars!

      By Joe Giglio

      from NY,NY

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I LOVE the ZT Lunchbox!!! I originally bought the LB because it is a tiny/light/powerful/great sounding amp. I gig around town in NYC & take the subway, bus or walk, to most of my gigs. The LB has made the whole process easy! Carrying amps up/down subway staircases, squeezing into buses, carrying amps up/down stairs in East Village basement clubs, etc, was a nightmare, but not anymore! Now here's the kicker: I would have been happy if the LB was sufficient for the gigs - real happy, But I LOVE the sound - in addition to loving the size!!! It is my FAVORITE amp. I have many other amps, & have in the past owned vintage Fender, Gibson, Ampeg, Marshall, newer Mesa Boogie, Polytone, JazzKat, Roland amps...I play the LB on gigs, in the studio, at home, as my 'first call-go to' amp - stairs or no stairs, subway or airplane. Man these ZT folks are the real deal - THANKS!!!

      Holy Smokes!

      By John Clark

      from Keene, KY

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      First off; somehow the pictures led me to believe that the term "lunchbox" was an exaggeration, but after opening the box, and then another box and then another box, I was left with this little thing that is almost literally the size of a kids lunchbox. I thought, well this little thing is gonna be a disappointment, they didn't have to make it THIS small (6" speaker!, c'mon...) I plugged it in and started testing it here in the great room. The dogs ran for the exits and Kozmo the wooden Indian began shakin' all over. I never cranked it all the way up for fear of damaging the glassware. Unbelievable. A friend of mine is waiting for one of their "acoustic/PA versions" to come off back order at guitar center (and this thing makes me very curious about what one of those can do), but if you are looking for a little monster, go check one of these out.

      I recently bought the ZT lunchbox amp. I liked its small size. I figured I would use it for practice only. Little did I know that it is Great for small meeting rooms or large churches. I play for my church worship team,plus with a worship team that travels all over. I have been leaving the big combo amp I own behind. I use the ZT Lunch Box for any and all events I play.

      Not a good high-power backup amp

      By Chris

      from Auburn, WA

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox 200W 1x6.5 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I have a 60-watt Sovtek tube-amp and I thought this would make a great backup. It does have plenty of power to drive my 4x12 for clean sounds, but when pushed hard with a distortion pedal it adds its own unpleasant contribution, a trebly/hissy/splattery mush. Turning down the (master) volume fixes the problem but then its not very loud compared to my tube amp. I know its not a totally fair expectation, it is after all a solid-state amp and they're not known for sounding great when cranked. But this little guy is rated to put out 130 watts RMS into 8 ohms so it should have the raw power necessary to drive my cabinet without the tone falling apart so readily.
