The features have been pretty well covered in other reviews. This amp may be where the future of amps are headed. Even having owned this for a month I am still dumbfounded that a 6.5" can produce this much sound
I was trawling the amp section of my local guitar store, when I saw this thing sitting a shelf, surrounded by Voxs' , Fenders and Oranges. What is it? I went over to check it out. Ok, it's a cute little 10 watt practice amp, with a kind of sparse, silver metalflake cabinet. It's probably marketed towards woman. Then I picked it up. Heavier than it looked. I checked out the controls: bare bones. Then I saw the price tag. This price for a 10 watt shoebox by a company I'd never heard of? The guys who make this must be nuts. The guitar salesman - a friend of mine - had been watching me check this thing out. He told me to look at the back. Ok. Headphone jack, headphone jack volume knob (that's unusual), Voltage switch, On/off switch for the speaker (that's unusual too), and an external speaker jack. "What's this for?" I asked my friend. "An external cabinet" he answered. I gave him a 'What?' look. "It's 200 watts" he said. "What?".... That's right 200 watts, 10 lbs, seems like it was designed for pedal freaks and loud enough to peel off your wallpaper. Just like I thought, the guys who make this are nuts.
I haven't had this long enough to give it a 10. But so far it has performed very well with no issues.
Well, the holy grail of amps is 'small, light, loud with kick butt sound'. This little gizmo is a giant step in that direction. Will it replace a Marshall stack? No. But it wasn't designed to. For what it is, at least for the present, it is it's only competition

This is a good little product. I don't write many reviews but I have something important to say here. This is a loud amp. You could use it for a band rehearsal or a small gig. It is also light and readily portable.

The negative about this product is the tone. Not only will it not sound like your beloved tube amp (I wouldn't expect that) but the tone is very flat and one dimensional. This is because there is no reverb and only one tone knob. If you plan to plug your guitar straight in, you won't like the tone.

Here is the secret. If you connect a pedal that has eq and reverb, you can get a nice warm sound out of this thing. I use a zoom ms100bt pedal as it gives me both eq and reverb in one small unit. There are other such devices but you need eq and reverb before this amp will sound good. Please give it a listen before you buy. I hope this was helpful.

Great Little Amp!

By John Barbanti

from New York

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

I bought this on a whim based on some of the reviews I have read. I've had it now for a few weeks and I have to tell you, this little thing holds it's own. I brought it to band practice the other day using it with my Boss ME-70. The Lunchbox had no problem keeping up with the other guitar, bass & drums, and the band can get loud. The sound was great also. Since I am getting older, the size and weight along with the quality is a godsend. I don't have to lug around my Fender or Egnator to practice. Also, I hook the unit up to my Egnator Rebel extention cabinet at home nd the sound was even better! This could be used at a gig.............

I recommend this amp to anyone looking at a compact unit with big sound!!!!

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

Title says it all. I normally play through a Bogner or Two Rock. No the Lunchbox isn't as good, but it is incredible considering it's size and price. Way better tone than I expected. Think I'll have to try the Club.

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

    I am a college student studying jazz guitar. This amp is so convenient for travelling; it can go anywhere (especially with the handy, optional gig bag).

    This amp is clear and loud enough to hang with the band. It does not have distortion and it does not sound like a meaty 12" speaker. What you do get is a tone that does not fart out, with an emphasis on the mids that helps you cut through a mix. If you need more balls, you could run this amp direct or into an extension cabinet.

    This amp is for players that get their drive and effects from their board, or for players that just want the sound of their guitar amplified. With a versatile board and an extension cab, you'd have a very versatile rig ready for any size venue.

    For the price, it's really hard to beat and just too cool and convenient to pass up.

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

    This is a great club amp. Seriously, it'll replace your average 1x12 combo. I used to play a Dr. Z Carmen Ghia. Now I use the Lunchbox, and I haven't looked back. The tone is actually about the same. Okay, maybe it doesn't have the farthest reaches of the tonal spectrum, but it does the job on the gig. I play classic rock/blues/country in small to medium venues, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it on a very large stage miked. For the price of a nice boutique overdrive pedal, you can't get this amp. Get it. ONE CAVEAT: PUT IT ON THE FLOOR! It needs to be grounded for its full tonal spectrum.

    Feisty little bugger!!

    By krebstar

    from Knoxville, TN

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

    It is definitley loud enough and tonally worthy of playing with a full band (with drums, bass, other guitars, etc.), but sounds much fuller and thicker with an additional cab. I'm sure the Club model ZT makes can hold its own a little better, without another cab, but for something super small and light (and a great price), this amp does the trick.
    This amp is quite impressive, not just for its price and size/weight, but overall. I would have to chime in with some of the others, though, and add that, as surprisingly loud as it is, it doesn't quite have the warmth, beefiness, and umph of a nice big tube amp, even one of significantly less wattage, such as a Peavy Classic 50, Fender HotRod Deville, etc. But with an exention cab (the matching one ZT makes or any appropriate cab)," you can get pretty close. I'd also have to agree with those who have said that the ""Ambience"" knob is somewhat useless. It is NOT by any means reverb", but merely a slight adjustment in tone, similar to a slap-back echo type effect. Interesting, yes, but not reverb. Reverb is the one feature this amp inexplicably lacks that would have been such an easy and essential one to add.
    But for the price, it is of great quality.

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

    I love this amp, it's like something from the 22nd century, or a scifi novel. Not only very light weight and loud, but you can play it through external cabs. Someone who really thought about what a guitar amp combo should be like designed and built this. My hat is off to ZT.
    Just the right controls, simple to operate, LOUD but clean, very light weight.
    Master volume and gain knobs are reversed, but that's trivial.
    Speaker kicks butt.

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

      I have been a musicians for over fifty years now. I have always preferred tube amps and frankly, still do. The problem is that this old man is having a hard time carting around fifty+ pound amps. Having this amp has made life much easier on the road. I was happily surprised at the great sound this little thing has. I used it on jobs during the past two weeks (small venues) and it performed very well.

      The amp has amazing clean power and once you get the gain up around 3 o clock it seems to have a sweat tube crunch. This amp is not for metal players but great for everything else.
