Reviews around state (5.00 of 5)

  • It has tube power in 10 lbs with solid state flexibility
  • In fact, the 12 watt (solid state) practice amp has about the same useful volume as the LB and sounds much better
  • Having said that, it IS a well made speaker, well built solid state amp housed in a well built cab that is extremely portable
  • there is a drawback - $300 for a solid state amp that really needs external pedals to
  • This solid state amp runs class AB and produces 200 watts of power

Reviews around headroom (5.00 of 5)

  • I have been using it as a practice amp as well as in a band setting
  • I agree with another reviewer who said that this is best thought of as a loud practice combo and an excellent, powerful head with tons of clean headroom.
  • Received into a home of professional musicians in which is to be found over 40 different amps, this powerful and lusty-voiced little appliance has loads of clean headroom, wonderful tonal range, a little-old-lady friendly weight and enough power to force the dog under the bed
  • Then I was amazed at how LOUD it could be and still have clean headroom

Reviews around feature (5.00 of 5)

  • u use, but it's awesome trough a 4x12 MesaBoggie cab, and trough a 4x12 Marshall
  • I have been using it as a practice amp as well as in a band setting
  • the ambiance was a better feature than newer verb processors
  • Personally I love that feature because you can also use the phones jack as an output to a PA with the amp's internal speaker still active
  • Some of the nice features of the Lunchbox include a headphone/DI out (perfect for when you want to run through the board), a speaker on/off switch, an Ambience knob (open-back cabinet simulation, sort of like a room reverb), and Speaker out (if you need to power a cabinet @ 200W).

  • The Lunchbox produces enough of a clean tone for my practice needs.
  • I've had my Lunchbox for a few years now, and I love it just as much, if not more now

  • The overall sound is a bit artificial, and while it might sound good at low volumes, there are MANY other amps in this price range which are small, but have much better tone, and don't misrepresent their power

Reviews around review (5.00 of 5)

  • There's enough reviews on here that state the obvious
  • I just bought this amp based upon the amazing reviews both here and on other websites.
  • I came close to buying the THR10 because of the favorable reviews, but at the end of the day I wanted a little more boom which a six-inch speaker can easily produce, while the Mustang I was just too big for a lunchbox solution.

Reviews around zoom (5.00 of 5)

  • Zoom pedals work excellently, Line 6 POD works very well, and Digitech does not work well

Reviews around volume (4.26 of 5)

  • The speaker/cabinet seems to be able to handle only about 3/4 the available volume (Gain at 5:00, Volume at 12:00) before it begins to buzz noticeably, even though it is built very solidly (the whole amp seems very well made, especially for the price).
  • With the volume and gain up at 50%, the Lunchbox was able to hang with a Marshall stack, a 4x12 bass cab, and a loud drummer
  • And volume enough to piss off your neighbors!Simply put, you won't be disappointed.
  • If you are after clean volume you might be disappointed.
  • In fact, the 12 watt (solid state) practice amp has about the same useful volume as the LB and sounds much better

Reviews around sound (3.55 of 5)

  • I played with it at a performance in a small church hall and the sound was loud and clear.
  • This amp sounds amazing and is loud enough for what I need.
  • The amp has a nice clean sound, and is certainly very loud.
  • Clean, low noise, I'm used to the controls and love the sound of it
  • Players that use a lot of distortion (e.g., Metal) will get a lot more out of this amp than players that need cleaner sounds at volume.

Reviews around pedal (3.53 of 5)

  • The "ambience" setting adds dimension in a subtle chorus or delay manner, but with a decent digital reverb pedal, it' might just be the lightest, cleanest and best go-to jazz gigging guitar amp yet.
  • I have been using it as a practice amp as well as in a band setting
  • Some pedals and guitars are picky about what amp they plug into
  • The Lunchbox, when accompanied by a decent pedal set up (I'm using a Digitech RP355) is perfect for small venues, and capable of filling a medium size venue
  • Zoom pedals work excellently, Line 6 POD works very well, and Digitech does not work well
