New (small but powerful) Amp Day

Post by Sollophonic on Tue Apr 03, 2012 11:33 am

Been after one of these ZT Lunchbox amps for a while now, having tried one out, and I got hold of one the other week.

Used it live this last Saturday, with a large soul band I play in. Easily kept up with a loud keen drummer, four horns and vocals through the PA, keys through a 100 watt amp, and bass through a Trace Elliot and a 1 x 15 cab.

Was amazed at how much bass this 120 watt amp puts out through that 6.5" speaker, and how clear and loud it was, yet still bale to carry it around in a shoulder bag.

My gig rig from now on (+ a spare guitar of course)



Plus the nice thing about it is how it lets different guitars shine through as well.

Sounds great with a Westone too

Sounds like an extraordinary piece of equipment Sollo. Never heard of this one but I'll make a mental note of the name now.
I've waxed poetic also before about the tiny VOX DA5 which is another 6" speaker wonder machine. I'd never attempt to do what you did with it, but I have used it live in a trio with remarkable results.

Another amazing (but expensive) amp series to check out is the current Marshall 50th anniversary reissue series. 1 blistering watt, and loud as heck!

Good things come in small packages! That's what he said clown

Hey I have a DA5 too, a by now rather faded pink one Laughing

I have used it live too, lined out into a PA, when I was awaiting hernia surgery and couldnt carry heavy kit (besides I had sold my heavy amp by then anyway)

This ZT is a reaction to my heavy amp lugging days, no more heavy lifting of amps for me.

Hey I dont need to when I get the volume I need out of this little monster Cool Evil or Very Mad

+1 for the DA5
I also LOVE the Orange Micro Crush, especially for quiet living room playing, it also has plenty of power when jacked to my mixing desk! super cute too sunny
