OVERVIEW

Small amplifier with a big sound.

Boldly creative and defiantly original, the Promethean delivers power, portability and high fidelity. The Promethean head features a built-in graphic EQ and the unique footswitch-accessible VIBE control for rapid changes between modern and vintage tones.

The Promethean is considered a Class D amp. During the operation of a Class D amp, the circuitry is switched either on or off, rather than operated in linear mode. This technology allows for its light-weight and compact nature, without sacrificing power.

With the simple removal of four screws, you can detach the head completely from the cabinet, for a completely transportable amp head, small enough to fit in a briefcase or backpack, so you can plug into a bigger cabinet somewhere else. Always have your sound with you.

The Vibe control offers tones found on vintage passive basses. With this control, you can engage a crisp edge, and keep the fat mid sound pumping through. Plenty of presence and clarity can be achieved with dialing in the vibe control. This gives you the ability to use all the other EQ levels independently and then add a little top-end sheen or a thick, meaty low. Weighs in at just under 55 lb!

    Comments about Ibanez Promethean P5210 500W 2x10 Bass Combo Amp:

    This combo really blew me away with the power and hi-def sound of a bigger rig. Too bad they are hard to find. Ibanez stopped making them. They never put them in stores for bassists to try out!! The only way I found out about them,is a friend bought the 1-10 combo over for me to try!!! I was amazed at the warm bottom and crisp highs for thumping. The Vibe knob lets you go from vintage to modern sounds. You can add another cab to increase the output!!! I wish the could have had a side handle to make it easy to carry. This is the lightest and best sounding two ten combo, I've ever played on. If you can find one,buy it quickly!! You will be so happy playing it in small to medium size venues. It fits in small trunks. Love this rig!!!

          Comments about Ibanez Promethean P5210 500W 2x10 Bass Combo Amp:

          This amp not what it is avertised to be. It is the weakest 500 watt amp I have ever heard. If the volume is turnned up on either the amp or guitar it makes a popping noise. I sent it back!
          I don't know if it was a mfgr defect or just the amp itself. Don't waste your time or money.

          Ibanez 5210 Promethean bass amp review

          By Vic

          from Cambridge, Ontario , anada

          Comments about Ibanez Promethean P5210 500W 2x10 Bass Combo Amp:

          Without getting into too many details about all the features. This amp amazed me by how the it project such a huge articulate sound from such a small rig.You can download the manual of the net for all the features. All the sliders and knobs seem to be of good quality. The clip/gain works great for getting your levels nice and clean.It is also dead silent sitting idle,nice for recording. Truth be told, I never would of thought that Ibanez would come up with such a nice product with this much punch in such a small rig.Real happy with this. It even fits in my trunk.

          Loud and powerful in a solid cab.

          By IanRc

          from Puerto Rico

          Comments about Ibanez Promethean P5210 500W 2x10 Bass Combo Amp:

          I have to say that this amp packs a lot of power in a compact and solid package. The construction is solid and rattle free sound. They spent some time designing the cab and the amp.You can notice the 500 watts with little volume settings. I use a BTB bass and it feels like they are made for each other.The only reason I gave a 4.5 is the wood finish.. Although it looks nice, it has no protection qualities.. Small dings will be there for life. No corner protectors will guarantee worn out corners fast. It should have side handles in addition to the single top one. The cool thing with the top handle is that it hides bellow the wood and let's you sit on top of it or place any gear safely on top of it.The promethean head is very capable and with a lot of juice to power bigger gear like my 4 Ohms 4X10 cab. Removal is a breeze thanks to the 4 thumb screws easily accessible.Perfect balance between volume and size.Highly recommended for the working bass player with a small trunk space!
