Fun little amp

I play metal. This is a tiny Mesa Boogie clone. It plays metal too.

Obvious jokes aside, this little thing is awesome. It's not a straight-up clone of the mkV. More like an ideal mix between a few boxes. Overall distortion has a boogie character but is tighter than you would expect. It really benefits from hitting the front with a boost. A clean boost preferably.

Materials feel sturdy. Nothing feels cheap ( except the comically large BT antenna I guess ). The serial FX loop works as expected. The direct ( cab emulated ) out sounds ... good enough. A raw output would have been nicer than an emulated one but it's built for headphone practice, not recording directly, ultimately.

It sounds fabulous on a Benton v30 and even better on more serious cabs.

Where it fails, and why it gets 5 stars for sound is how it handles harmonics. If your playing benefits from a ton of well-defined squeals and/ or natural harmonics, I'd recommend you stay away from this box. Can you pull them off here? Technically yes but they will sound somewhat underwhelming. No amount of eq will change that significantly.

I was entirely fine with pinch harmonics on all the amps I've had so far ( and on most direct out cheapo preamps too ) except this. It could always be that I got much worse at them but I doubt it since natural harmonics don't shine as they should either.

All-in-all I am loving this tiny lunchbox and don't see myself parting with it any time soon.

Personal prefference of course, but there is a point that is never described on youtube reviews.
The clean tones of this head are 100% decent.
- Warm and deep bass response?: CHECK.
- Rich mid tones?: Check
- Clear high frequencies?: Check.
- Clean Gain? CHECK.

Obviously, it relates to a MB headand therefor the overdrive distortion channel does what its supposed to. Heavy tones that can be modified with the Tone knob to bring up the treble or the bass. ITS EXTREMELY LOUD (I use it with a Harly benton G112) and it provides more than enough for a 30sqm room. Im using it on the 1, maybe 1,5 on the volume knob otherwise, its just too loud.

I have tried the Meteor on the same order (Orange) and I have decided for this one on every tone possible.
This one has a much more "Presence" on the tones (Clean and OD)

Cannot complain about the missing EQ knobs, as its lunch box head and i knew it didnt have those in advance, but it could be great to use an EQ pedal (yet not necessary at all to be perfectly functional)

TLDR:
-VERY USABLE CLEAN TONEESSSSSS
- Powerful gain and distortion channel
-Extremely loud.
- Cute to see over the amp.
- Low price for the quality
- More than enough to be used on a practice room and im sure in the open aswell
- Bluetooth connection

"Negatives" that are not really a negatives:
-The clean channel its just a bit less quieter than the overdrive, but that can be fixed by simply turning the volume knob by a millimeter.

- It might be that the Zombie 2 its a bit more practical as its has a double channel with a foot switch and independent knobs, but this could be only preference. This one its just more than enough.

Small package & huge tones

This little Zombie head maybe small but it has lots teeth and produces a deadly bite.
I bought this as a travel head as my band jams are a fair distance away.
So, using public trains to transport a full size head is a no go.
Light in weight and small enough to fit in the gig bag, no dramas.

Clean channel very pristine and useable not much else to say there.
The gain channel in incredible.
I was absolutely blown away with this little head.
Through a 2x12 or 4x12 this little monster can compete with a full band. Retains it's composure well and does not flub out when pushed hard.

I've also used it in my home studio too, from the fx loop send to my interface and using IR's to great effect.

My only gripe is the loud pop it sends through the speaker when you turn it on.
Not sure if this issue has been corrected in the Mk2 version.

Fantastic little head I would highly recomend it.

Good things come in small packages

This little heavy metal tube amp has a big sound. It's incredibly easy to use, has little noise, even with the gain cranked to 11. It also sounds great (played through a Celestion V30). I love that the clean channel gain can almost be cranked to max without breaking up. That's great for putting my own OD or distortion pedals into it.

All the features work well and are easily utilized, save one.

The speaker cab emulation you get from the headphones sounds boomy and brittle. Definitely not the nicest of sounds, but reasonable for practice uses.
