    If The Doctor played guitar, he would own this amp. It's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Just got one yesterday, and played it for about an hour last night with a Telecaster. It kicks. I overdrove it by cranking the Gain and Volume, and also played clean by backing off on the Gain. Great sound both ways, and amazing volume for something this small and lightweight. I've had a Lunchbox for a couple of years, and LOVE it. This is half the size, and it still matters.

    Mediocrity at it's best...

    The Lunchbox JR looks absolutely beautiful. Metal grille, pretty knobs, pretty sparkly silver cabinet. ZT pays great attention to visual detail!
    Buttons turn smooth and durable power switch.No junk here!

    The Lunchbox JR looks absolutely beautiful. Metal grille, pretty knobs, pretty sparkly silver cabinet. ZT pays great attention to visual detail!
    Buttons turn smooth and durable power switch.No junk here!

    Nice portable size and can be powered from automobile cigarette lighter (12-volts)! I live fulltime in my car, so this works out perfect!

    Too bad the ZT Jr produces a lot of hiss when the volume is above its' 1/2 setting.
    The hiss is produced when powered from regular 120-volt electricity (in a building) AND 12-volt auto batteries!

    Turning the TONE control knob counterclockwise makes the speaker flop as a result of bass increasing while reducing the treble. When playing the guitar, this can be a problem, since the sound quality turns muddy.

    This amp is NOT high-fidelity.

    It is really loud (more than 35 watts), especially with the gain turned up. Easily loud enough to play in a small trio, with un-mic'd drummer.

    It makes really good rock-guitar sound.
    Jazz sound is not achievable with this particular amp (unlike the ZT Club amp; it just won't produce midbass (the circuitry and speaker cannot keep up).

    I ended up selling it, and bought a Yamaha THR10 & a Roland MiniCube (which is Louder than 5 watts and both amps will operate from automotive battery with 9-V transformer).

    Other than the hiss & other unwanted transients (such as low-fidelity), the Lunchbox Jr is a wonderful amp!
    I would recommend this amp to a friend, but with restrictions.

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox Junior Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've been teaching, recording and performing for over 40 years, and this little baby is the first piece of gear to make me sit up and take notice in a long time. At room volume, I use it for bass, keyboards or guitar, and am amazed at the tonal quality coming out of such a small package. The distortion leaves quite a bit to be desired, but the clean tone is amazing considering its size. For teaching, a coffee house gig, or a low volume rehearsal, the Lunchbox Junior does it in spades!

      Comments about ZT Lunchbox Junior Guitar Combo Amp:

      I've been playing nearly 50 years. I love light amps and am always looking for new formats. This one is top of the line, but it won't replace a 1X12 combo for general applications. On its own, it's a smooth-sounding low-volume blues or jazz amp -- perfect fpr a guitar-piano duo. The sound gets dirty much faster than 35 watts would suggest. You cannot use this in a band setting if you don't mike it or play overdriven. I use it with a ZOOM G2 to add reverb and modeling. With these effects it sounds great. The various features all work. Great little package, nice job ZT.

      Quality build, excellent sound for its size. Weighs more than you might expect, but still a champ in the midget power division.

            This amp is very useful for small practice sessions away from the studio, and has surprisingly good tone for a solid state amp.

            Great small size, has a nice full sound that is normally lacking in small packages. However, I have 5 Watt amps that are as loud as this 35 Watt rated amp, so I am dissappointed from a volume standpoint. It needs a 'Speaker Out' jack to make it more versitile.

              Comments about ZT Lunchbox Junior Guitar Combo Amp:

              I was well aware of the dimensions of the thing before it arrived, but opening the box and actually holding it is still pretty shocking. I found it to be small on a scale that it left it hard to believe that it would be functional for more than a practice amp. I accepted that the small size could be handy but expectation of sound quality was suddenly diminished.

              I stand corrected. The sound is excellent. It is definitely more than a curiosity that is smaller than a breadbox. It will put out a substantial amount of volume with a substantial low end range that was a tremendously satisfying surprise. For my modest needs, it far exceeds my expectations.

              I would like to note, for jazz guitarists I think you'll find this to be a surprisingly versatile and capable tool, not just a toy.

                I am a guitarist and teacher in Seattle. I walk to my studios on Capitol Hill, so I need a light amp with a good sound and a lot of power. This amp fits my compact/quality lifestyle perfectly. I am very happy with the style, sound and portability of this amp.
