About This Joyo Zombie Bantamp Series 20 Watt Guitar Hybrid-Tube Amp Head - Hi Gain

The JOYO Zombie micro guitar amp head blends valve and solid state guitar amplifier technology, resulting in a tiny amp head that can produce an immense high wall of sound. The JOYO Bantamp series is arguably the most feature rich & versatile mini amp heads available at this price in Australia!

The Zombie has a 1 x 12AX7 Preamp tube - The ability to reproduce the sound of the instrument was a key factor in assessing a tube for the JOYO Bantamp series. The 12AX7 pre amp tube produces the warm smooth overdrive tones that do not clip tone as a typical fixed state amp head would. The Tube Pre amp has the sonic focus of fattening tone stages and keeps your guitar sounding true to its original tone.

Clean Channel

With 2 channels flick the amp to the CLEAN channel and use with your array of guitar pedals. A two channel amp makes a guitar head twice as versatile as alternatives and a makes a great companion for musicians at practise or on the road. The zombie will keep it clean and puts everything in place for the drive of your life.

Distortion Channel

The ZOMBIE comes alive with its low gain settings, you may want to use your favourite overdrive pedals to push it even further into higher gain territory with your own unique flavour. Push the drive and you will hear the Zombie scream pure terror. You may actually benefit from an additional Noise Gate to control!

FX Loop

The FX loop on a guitar amplifier enables you to put your modulated based effects (Phasers, Flanger, tremolo and Chorus) after the Zombie delivers its drive magic. The FX loop keeps the modulated effects pure and will prevent them from becoming muddied from the amp gain.

Bluetooth Wireless Connectivity

Pair your Bluetooth device to the Zombie and jam along to your favourite tracks, connect your external device via Bluetooth and play your audio tracks cleanly through the amps Bluetooth receiver channel. We find that this is a great way to practice the guitar with and to learn new songs without a big tangle of wires.

Headphone Out with Built in Cab Speaker Amp Simulation

The amp has a speaker out rated at 8 and can also be operated at 16. Careful, the amp is small, but 20 Watts is loud and will deliver a handful. If you want to practice quietly, use the built in headphone out with speaker emulation, you get the same great tone as you would from a 150 watt mega amp.

Once you start working with this amp, you will soon forget its size. You will not forget the very affordable price and amazing tone it delivers. It will feel as if you are playing through a much bigger head amp and your audience just won't believe where your sound is really coming from. You can tell them, this is the new JOYO Zombie & there is no escape from the high gain sound of an undead boogie man.

This little amp sounded so brutal i just had to grab a second one to take on the road. Obvious advantage is the size but i never skimp on my live sound and this tiny fella delivers. Thanks to Joyo and Artist for the fantastic product. A definite positive reccomendation for anyone seeking killer Metal tones.

BLOWN AWAY!! This little beast sounds absolutely brutal. Loud enough to drive my 4x12 at a live show. Straight to the point, no messing around. Want a killer metal tone no matter what subgenre? Get one of these.

This amp is great, straight out of the box you have a high gain monster that you can shape the gain and the tone to what you need.... the clean channel is real clean and fabulous and even running a distortion pedal like the electro harmonix metal muff or digitechs metal master it really opens up to it and makes it sound better than any of my other amps....... i will give this a rating of 4 out of 5 since it is best run out of a 2 speaker cab than a 4 speaker cab i really do wish i could run it out of a 4 speaker cab and maybe an extra tube would not hurt it............ other than that GREAT product guys will also look at getting the meteor version too
