What a complete disappointment. I ordered this amp thinking it was 200 watts with a DI output, a woofer specially designed to handle large excursions for high volume applications, and a natural acoustic sound. The amp I received had none of these. I measured the amp power at about 130 watts RMS. The output jack that is labeled DI is anything but that, neither balanced nor transformer isolated. The paper woofer has a pressed paper surround not even a butyl rubber surround for response linearity as the volume goes up. And the sound? It's a modeled pre-amp stage but with no user access to the modeling parameters. I hear a guitar sound that some talented software engineers created to their liking in Berkeley CA. I don't hear the sound of my guitar as it sounds unplugged or through good acoustic amps that sound transparent.

ZT is misrepresenting this product in their marketing and advertising -- not a 200 watt amp, no DI, no linear woofer response with increasing volume, and a contrived modeled sound. What surprises me most is that the professional magazine reviewers haven't picked up on any of this, except for a few who have pointed out that the amplifier is not as powerful as ZT says it is.

Well.... You have probably heard a lot about ZT amps already right? This one(Lunchbox Acoustic)lives up to the ZT name and delivers! I tried it out with my brother, he was on guitar, I was singing. It was crankin'. We didn't have a drummer around at the time, but I think the volume would of been plenty loud enough to compete with your average drummer. No problem. The controls are straight forward and very usable. A lot of options on this little thing! Phantom power! Sweet! Reverb on both channels....etc...etc... I have talked to people who have said with a bigger speaker this amp really cranks! I have yet to try it, but with it's built-in 6.5" speaker I have no complaints! The portability factor alone is awesome! One thing I did notice, if you want a super clean sound, crank the gain up really loud and then use the volume for the overall "volume" of sound. This is an awesome amp!

Wow, this little amp is receiving a lot of unwarranted hatred here. Let's try to make a few things clear. If you are going to expect the same volume from an acoustic amp you get from an electric one with the same wattage, you'll be bound to end up disappointed. But then, you'll be the kind of person who's disappointed all the time, because you haven't heard of expectation management. This is not "falsely advertised" as an amp that can fill a medium sized venue with rich, powerful sound. Do yourself a favor and hook up the Lunchbox to an external 8 Ohm cabinet. It doesn't have to be equipped with a Hifi speaker, any old guitar cab will do. The sound is very specific, and if you don't like it, no amount of tweaking will change that. But it's silly to blame the amp for that. Anybody with experience in acoustic guitar amplification will tell you that there is always (and I mean always) a degree of compromise involved. Don't rely solely on piezo pickups, get a system like the L. R. Baggs Anthem or a Fishman system which also has a microphone. I have used the Lunchbox successfully as a combined DI box/monitor speaker in live situations. It fed the PA with a good, rich sound that had great reverb already in it, and everybody was happy. But mostly this is an amp for intimate living room concerts, for giving your voice and/or guitar just enough of a lift to compete with someone playing the piano or softly played drums. Start at the source and improve the sound of your guitar and your PU system, and you'll get rewarding, rich results. If you want loudness, without feedback problems, pretend you're Dylan at the Newport festival and go electric.

Probably the best option of this type. Small enough to fit in a backpack, with power for a small club. Probably 200 watts is a little exagerated, but this guy will be heard for sure... also, if you have an overdrive pedal, you can get some Decent transistor Rock Sounds. In the acoustic/ jazz field really shines. Try one...

We've been doing acoustic house shows for years & occasionally use amplification. Have tried numerous "small" p.a.'s, most costing more & all doing lots less than this unit.
Gives you the ability to dial in just the right amount of vocal & guitar. Have used this very low at times & very loud at times. Very pleased with sound & love the ease of operation. Dial in reverb,etc. for each channel to match your taste.
Have sold 2 pricey p.a.s since purchasing this lunchbox.
A must for any singer-songwriter that plays small venues at times. Most coffeeshops, etc i've been to have subpar sound systems. Bring your own lunchbox & you know the sound will be good. Any house concert, coffeeshop, small venue owners, pick one up. You will not regret it.
I may not be an expert on sound but do consider myself qualified to some degree. My home system consists of Bryston, Classe, PS Audio, Benchmark, Musical Fidelity & Martin-Logans. So I do know good sound when I hear it & am disappointed at the sound in many smaller venues. If they all had ZT Lunchbox gear then I would know the sound will be satisfying(that is if the artist is good!)
5 stars for sure, do yourself a favor & give one a listen.
