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

I previously gave this amp a great review; however, I have decreased the rating to a two star since the amp went out on me after 1 1/2 years of light use. The amp was never abused and never played at high volume.

I liked the amp very much while it worked but I feel an amp of this price range should at least last for 5 years with no problem. I have some old Peavy Amp that are 20 years old that still work.

I am really sorry this has happened but I will not buy another one.

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

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.

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

      This amp meets a unique niche especially for rehearsal when you want to travel light, get in/get out speedily and especially if you'll have to carry gear down a bunch of basement steps or other unfriendly-to-rolling-dolly terrain. Loud enough to keep up with other band members. Also, I keep this compact amp in my bedroom for rehearsal and spontaneous inspirations. It just sits on my dresser without overwhelming the room.

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

      I feel like I have been waiting for this amp since I started playing professionally! Its so nice to have an amp I can take on the subway and easily carry with one hand while my guitar is in a gig bag on my back. I have always been jealous of sax/trumpet players for whom transporting an instrument is never an issue, and it is nice to finally be able to function as they do.

      I have only played this on two gigs so far as well as a couple of rehearsals. Bandmates have commented on how it doesn't sound like I am using a smaller amp and how I still get a full sound. The tone is a very clean solid state sound. I'm not going to lie - I love the warmth of tubes, but I will gladly use this for its portability over dragging a back breaking tube amp around town. I'm using a reverb pedal with the amp to emulate spring reverb and I am wondering what the tone would be like if I got a reverb or distortion pedal that had a tube in it. I have also been using a total of four pedals which the amp handled like any full sized amp would.

      I have to wonder if this is the future of guitar amplification? I know we all have our favorite amps and tones, and I know it will take decades for many guitarists to let go of the macho need for a huge amp, but now that the technology exists for an amp this size to have this power, I hope more manufacturers will follow ZT's lead and build amps comparable to this so we can all have dozens of choices of small but loud amps. Honestly, with the right distortion pedal you could probably turn this up all the way and play thrash metal if you wanted to.

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

        This is the loudest amp for its size that I've ever heard. I used to play a Roland JC-77 and it was too big and too loud. I played a Fender Champion 600, not enough clean headroom. I used to use a Fender Princeton Reverb and the tubes were always making me worry. This amp was a perfect alternative and was the best birthday gift I ever got. Very loud, small, ultra clean and great tone used clean for jazz. Also, I have used a DS-1 with it and it sounds great.

            The loudest smallest amp that you ever need or used. Great for the road or shows, excellent for recording in studio as space is always limited. You will never know how loud it really is cause you never go pass half ways on the volume. Has a nice warm jazz, country, blues sound stock out of the box. If you add pedals you open the window to endless sounds and creations. A must have tool for any guitarist!

              It is an easy to carry, easy to use unit; it sounds like a hard to carry, hard to use unit. Interestingly, I use it with a blues harp in a blue grass band. I needed something to be heard among a loud 12 piece band. This unit is great for what I needed.
