I have only just discover the ZT Lunchbox and I am rather intrigued! A tiny, lightweight, lunchbox sized (natch) 200w guitar amp with a 6.5" speaker.

I was just wondering if anyone had any experience of them?

I had one for a few months.
Wonderful build quality and really loud. Tiny and portable.
I never got a tone out of it I was happy with though.

Closest I got was putting a distortion pedal in front of it that had an octave built in.
The octave really beefed up the tone. Without it the sound was always too tinny for me.

They get lots of great reviews.
The 200 watts is peak power though, the RMS is a lot lower.

My band is backing up a guy tonight who will be using one of these. It sounded fine in rehearsal today in my tiny room. Will report back to see how it works at gig level, if anyone is interested.
He plays a telecaster with humbuckers.
Sniggering - auto-correct wanted to change humbuckers to hamburgers :)

Sounded pretty good on stage, but the guitar on the other side of the stage drowned it out somewhat (my Sessionette!). The fuzz sound through it sounded good, and was all there, but I think the amp was less than half up on the volume control. Would have liked to have heard it pushed a bit more.
During the soundcheck, the sound man said it sounded great, I think he took a direct out the back of the amp.

Nice to know it seems like a valid option! Ta.

There are some bits in this gig recording where the ZT is on its own, though he is using a Turbo Rat with a fairly spitty sound in front of it.
At about 20 minutes the tune coffee is only the ZT, and some of the intros are on it's own.
The more jangly clean sounds are the other tele through the Sessionette, the ZT is slightly on the right of the mix (recorded on a Zoom handheld H2)

Is another live recording featuring the lunchbox. There's less other stuff going on in this recording, so it's a bit easier to make out.
