ZT Lee Ranaldo Club Amp

I always passed on a ZT in the past when the chance came up (hit or miss QC-wise, really), but props 4 Jasper Johnning this thing, as well as more solid state options that aren't the usual suspects.

Price is mighty high, however ($1499 street). :cry:

A Quilter head (or even a Crate Power Block, mmmhmm) & a 12" would be more affordable, though entirely less sexy (unless there were two of 'em). :snax:

Very cool. A little too $ but it definitely sounds like a Lee Ranaldo amp.

:lol:

pinstripedclips has been recording with a ZT Lunchbox for a long time and always sounds fantastic through it (even though fuzz pedals aren't generally considered to sound good through solid state amps):

I'm pretty sure you could just get an actual Super Reverb, like Lee Ranaldo actually uses, for less than that. I guess I never understood what the point of putting out gear that emulates the sound of a guitarist is, when that guitarist uses known, existing gear. I guess I've never cared about lightweight gear, though, or needed to play at low volumes. Is that the market this is after?

I always thought of Lee Renaldo as a "whatever works, as long as it's got enough headroom for my effects" kinda guy when it comes to amps.
I mean, didn't Sonic Youth used to play through Peavey Roadmasters for the longest time? :idk:

Pricey, but US-made stuff isn't cheap (especially California).

Basically, it's a case of "I have more money than the desire or ability to deal with a large, heavy thing of my choosing."

I could see this being attractive if one was regularly doing gigs in an urban hellhole (versus the taxi dance with big amps or amp+ cab).

Thurston’s definitely all about Roadmasters, but I thought Lee’s amp was a Super Reverb :idk:

Did they just take their old club amp design, make some cosmetic changes, and triple the asking price?

I love ZT amps, but that’s a really crazy price considering everything that’s currently available in that niche (loud af, lightweight, solid-state amplifier).

This has a 12” speaker, reverb, an effects loop, and a 3 band EQ. Not exactly features that set it apart from other combos, but not just a cosmetic upgrade for a ZT Club.

It has the exact same features as their now discontinued Club amp, except it’s more than double the price

I was thinking of and talking about the Lunchbox. Didn’t know that the Club existed. Looks like the only difference is a mid control.
