    Tried the Yamaha THR10. It's a cool practice amp. The ability to plug an iPod into it and jam along, learn tunes, etc.. Is cool , but the sound is just OK to me. I knew the small internal speakers would be just for practice, but had hoped the headphone out would sound better run thru a PA.
    It did not sound very good at all. I have a pocket Pod that sounds as good or better.

    The Micro Terror does that too. And it sounds great.

    The ZT Lunchbox is a unique amp. There is nothing anywhere near it's size and weight that puts out a similar volume.

    I remember you have the Mustang Floor. Is there anything specific you change on the Mustang presets when running into the ZT?

    Not really, other than EQ tweaks to taste. In the Utility menu: Output Mono, and Output Voicing PA System.

    Quilter Micropro might. I never played the ZT but my Quilter gets very loud with only an 8 inch speaker and absolutely roars through my 1x10 cab.
    Granted there is a price difference, but the Quilter sounds so darn good I have no doubt it's worth it!

    It looks like a nice Amp, I'm sure it sounds great. But at 19 lbs it is double the weight of the ZT. The Lunchbox is tiny, it is slightly smaller than a Roland Microcube.

    Get a Peavey. They're not just cute gimmicky toys.

    So you are using PA output instead of Combo amp? I'll have to give that a try.

    Yes, it sounded better to me, anyway!

    Oh yeah you're right, I was thinking of the larger ZT club. The lunchbox is pretty tiny!

    ZT do the Lunchbox Jr as well, but not sure about that one yet...the size trade off might be too much.

    My guess is the Jr. is for situations where the volume is controlled where no drummer is involved, jamming with acoustic guitars, coffehouse/restaurant gig.

    Well...I am drummerless...just a few beats from a looper pedal. Could work!
