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.

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

Great cleans, trully greats jazzy cleans (a little hard to get at high volume levels)
Love the sound when it start to break up also, plug a nice overdrive in that moment and you gonna be in the blues heaven.

About pedals: I use a JHS Morning glory for boost that sound that I mention, and a JHS Moonshine for more overdrive sound.
I also tried sometimes a TC electronics rottweiler high gain distortion and other similar pedals, and I can tell that the lunchbox take it very well at low volume levels, but amazingly with a 2x12 cabinet.

      In a band consisting of drums, keys, bass and horns, it cuts through the mix by itself. Using a separate 2x12 speaker cabinet is even better but not really necessary. Light weight and powerful. Recommended...

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

        This is what I was looking for. The older I get, the more I look at the weight of an instrument, as well as its quality. I rehearsed in a 5 piece band with this device, and it was great. I could actually use it live for small venues. The only thing I added was a Boss/Fender reverb pedal, but will use an entire pedal board if I play live with it. For me, the 9.5 lb. weight is the most attractive feature.

          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.

              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.
