Very practical, comfortable and portable. Good tone. Overpriced.

sasuke_bo, 30.09.2018
I play with a Epiphone Joe Pass and a Telecaster. Clean tone, sometimes a light overdrive with a Keekey red dirt. Mainly for pratice with a singer and a bass. Rarely with a percussionist. We play a jazz and blues. The tone of that small magic box is good! The 'Ambience' knob for me is not useful, I added a HOF reverb to give some 'air' and it's perfect. Everything is there: medium, highs and lows, yes even the lows :)

It's very portable, in a backpack, in the bus or in the bike basket: no more back problem with heavy amp. So, to be clear, the tone is _good_ but it's not the "super sound" that write the story of the music.
But sounds good with clean, overdrive and reverb and some other effect. Sometimes i use digital effects with a Zoom G3, no problem. With a Epi Joe Pass give a very very very good tone, not muddy (that i hate) but with a good balance treble and bass. With a Tele (original vintage pu) sounds good, need more energy on the mid-bass but the tone knob works very well. I'm very happy and satisfied form this box.

To be honest: before that I bought a Lunchbox Jr, and i have a bad experience for quality issue. Thomann staff refund me and after I gave second chance to ZT with this one. The building quality it's not on the high side, how the price could make you think, i think it's a little overpriced. To me appear not painted like the Jr but to me seem like a plastic film cover to the MDF body. The metal on the back is not 'shiny and clean' but there are some dark stains, like finger-gloved-prints. I try to clean it, lightly removed. Obviously, that's not a tech issue, it's only a 'feeling' with a small and very expensive MDF box that is not enough aesthetically build.
I wish give you some technical info that i asked directly to ZT:
- the back metal plate is the heatsink of the transistors: it becomes very hot, it's normal
- when switch off the amp it make a strong pop, like a high volume sound. i have had some other ss amp, the switch off pop it's normal, but this is the loudest pop i have heard. ZT reassured me that it's normal and if this sound it's annoying you can switch off the speaker before switch off the amp.
I hope my english it's enough to be understandable.

ZT Lunchbox - unbelievable!

Graham George, 21.10.2015
This is a no frills, but a lot of "thrills", amplifier.

This 120 decibels at 1 meter amplifier, packs a punch and cuts through the mix at a live gig like a knife.

It's compact size and convenient 4.3 kilos, belies its ability to scare the heck out of the noisiest of performers.

The amp will not be what you expect - it certainly wasn't for me, despite reading all the blurb and listening to everything I could find on the net.

It is a centered sound as you might expect, tight yet rich in mids.
However add a boost pedal with EQ Bass/Treble, and the bass warms up beautifully, but not woolly. Shift the tone control beyond 12.00 o'clock and you begin to turn your Strat' into a Tele'. Ear plugs recommended at this stage!

I prefer to use this amp as clean as possible - and there's plenty of headroom for that, but open up the gain and it gets dirty. Not that I'm using the gain for that, as I prefer pedals - which it accepts really well.

The 'ambience' works well between 9.00 o'clock and 12.00 o'clock, giving a more open tonal feel to the cabinet. This is what it's supposed to do, which is emulate an open back amp. After 12.00 o'clock it changes the sound too much but before that it works really well.

Fantastic value for money, compact, simple to use, although if you like effects pedals, it's a direct-in situation. Headphones/line out socket with volume control, which is a nice touch, and Aux/CD line-in. Additional speaker out and internal speaker off switch. For me . . . it's all there!

Lunchbox? more like a good meal!
