ZT Amplifiers has announced the release of the newest member of the ZT Lunchbox family of amplifiers, the Junior. It's even smaller and lighter than the ZT Lunchbox, weighing in at a mere 5 pounds, or half the weight. The Junior is also smaller than the ZT Lunchbox making it truly lunchbox size at just 6.5" x 7.75" x 5.5" inches with a 5" speaker that puts out 35 watts and peaks at 80 watts. The Junior can also run on 12V current, making it suitable for use on a boat or RV.
I've got a ZT Lunchbox that I keep in the trunk of my car for whenever I need a portable amp. While the tone of the Lunchbox is not exactly a tube amp, it's a nice clean sound and when coupled with an overdrive pedal it can be quite versatile. I'm looking forward to checking out the Junior and putting it to the test. With a street price of around $150, the Junior looks to be a great addition to the ZT Lunchbox series.
