Joyo Zombie II Bantamp XL Series 20 Watt Tube-Hybrid Amp Head

It’s been 2 years since JOYO launched the BanTamP series, and received amazingly positive feedback. Many clients take them along for performances by connecting them with JOYO 212/412 cabinets where the little head takes you by storm. Joyo has optimized the BanTamP series based on customers’ feedback, and now they’ve developed the brand new BanTamP XL series! Retaining the original tones and functions, BanTamP XL series features a channel switching footswitch 6 knobs - 2 channels' volume, tone, and gain can be controlled independently! Well, BanTamP XL series is definitely a better choice for musicians who love to perform with these amps!

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 typically 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 makes a great companion for musicians at practice 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.

Little Monster from JOYO

By: on 6 November 2020
Build quality on this little monster is very good in my opinion. Nothing feels week or cheap. Its tiny, about the size of a half loaf of bread. The whole chassis is metal. Very easy to remove the top of the case of you want to change out the tube. Sound wise, take this with a grain of salt, as I'm using headphones for the moment, and that's always a very crappy way of reviewing any amps sound. So rather than any negatives, I'll post my positives thus far. 1: gain for days 2: EQ is responsive for each channel 3: valve takes maybe 3 seconds to start making sound 4: very sturdy feeling build quality 5: clean channel is crystal clean, though some might not like it like that. Personal preference. 6: foot switch feels very solid, and does not make any noise at all when changing channels. 7: the value for money is ridiculously good. No buyers remorse here. Just cant wait for my speakers to arrive from the US, as Im making my own 2x12 cabinet to suit :)
