"this small & mighty wins a place in my keyboard rig"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'd buy it again; in fact I may buy another for changing my rig to stereo. Even with 2 of these, it's lighter than what it's replacing.

Was looking for a replacement for my 61 pound "off-brand Mackie450 clone" which I've been using for about 3 years for monitoring keyboards with my 5 piece original jazz/rock band the Urban Sherpas (plug). I haven't used it enough to say if one is better than the other, but I'm completely satisfied with the ZXA and it has plenty of volume for monitoring and as my main amp for small to medium venues. In the decision making phase of purchase, I was very concerned about bass response from the ZXA's 8" vs. clone's 12". I don't miss any bass at all from the ZXA's. I'm very pleasantly surprised. Electric and acoustic pianos (including left hand boogie bass lines), strings, B3 clone, synth pads and leads..all sound great

19 pounds and sounds great! Pole mount or monitor wedge placement. plenty of bass and volume for my needs. price was about 1/2 of QSC alternative. did I mention 19 lbs.? love it.

Ease of Use
highly portable. easy attachment of up to 2 inputs

With some trepidation, I took a chance and got a "blemished" from zzounds. Aesthetically it was perfect. At HIGH volume it buzzed. I took the speaker grill off and found that all 4 screws holding the 8" were read more loose. tightened'em up and it's now golden. Score.

oh yeah.

Manufacturer Support
I was not able to find ANY local dealers to listen before I purchased, so was banking on being able to return to zzounds if not satisfied (thank you, zzounds). I never had to do that..I'm keeping it!
