I play Bass & Keys . I use it for both . Playing bass It's a great small size only around 25 or so LBS. , with good tones . I like the tilt back feature for personal stage monitor & line out for the PA board .
With my keyboards , it has great bottoms & clear highs & solid mids . I have a couple of other Key board amps , one is a heavy monster & , all in all , for personal around the house practice or on the road (running throught the board ) , this little amp has been great ! I actually had 2 of them when I was traveling , one on the bus & one at the house (I'm lazy tired & old , they sounded good & they were cheap enought to get 2) , And , after I got the 1st one I had to have a 2nd one for the road .
You can get the bigger ones but all you gain is show off rights , more weight to carry & a bit more volume which , If you not using it for your stand alone amp & not running through the PA it won't be enough in a live setting however , now-a-days , most all gigs , everything is through the board so , great for your personal stage monitor & line out to the board & let your sound guy do the magic for the crowd , that's what He's for !
I learned many years ago , "It's not what you got to do with , it's what you do with what you got " ! If you can afford it & you have a strong back go for that back breaking stuff . I've hauled twin 3,000 watt rigs around for show & for what I thought I had to have to be and be seen as good but , run me through a board & I get an even better crowd sound ! ( Thanks sound men ) ! Treat 'em right !
Basic needs , I like the tilt back for one stage personal monitor & the line out to the board is really handy .
Pretty tough , I've used it at home traveling on the bus ect. Had it for several years & never a problem .
Held up well , no problems to report , it's been hauled carried , dropped a few times . still solid & sounds like the day I got it .

I bought this amp 2 years ago and was really impressed with the tone for the price. Nice, punchy, well-articulated sound for a small amp. However, within a few weeks of playing, without even pushing the speaker too hard, i started getting a really bad resonant buzz on G at any volume, regardless of how the controls were set. I tried other basses and got the same buzz. when I bypassed the speaker, i didnt get the buzz, so I figured it must be the speaker or something in the enclosure. I took the amp back and swapped it for another one, which developed the same buzz within a month or two. Good tone for an entry level/practice amp, but quality/manufacturing is questionable and customer support is non-existent. Definitely not a long-term purchase, but works well with PA setups and is ok for practice.

Amp Sale!

By Steve-IQbUa

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

2 years ago I got tired of draging around big amps, so a friend talked me into trying the Ibanez SW35. I love it and the tone I get from it. It is amazing how loud and hard you can drive it. I use it as my personal bass monitor on stage, mic it to save that tone, and go through the PA. I have been playing professionally for 30 years. I currently own 5 top bass rigs (4 of them now for sale). The Ibanez is the only one I use now. My fellow guitarist in the band use even smaller amps. We go into the gig and often others laugh at us using such tiny amps. We then blow them away. I love that - Thanks Ibanez

Great for first real amp

By Mike S-BSIID

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I bought this amp about 2 years ago as an upgrade to a cheesy ten watt and i have to say it was one of the best buys around. You can get good tone but not the best and it can keep up with most guitars and overpower the loudest drummers. mine just blew out a week ago so its lasted a great while. Buy it as a first real amp if its all your budget can afford but if you can get expensive go with the 65 watt version of this amp.

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I love mine for practice & combine it with a sub using the line out for huse rocking thump without cutting off the speaker. Not as wide range of sound as my Ampeg 112 but just as much umph and a limiter too! Almost unbeatable practice amp that can gig a small venue.

Perfect for home or practice

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I've owned this amp for over a year now, and I still love it. This amp isn't powerful enough to use for gigs, but it's definitely an excellent home or practice amp. This amp gets such a good tone with my bass. I have a large amp that I use for gigs, but I keep this amp at home for practice. It sounds so good.

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I got this amp in 2005. It is really good practice amp for yourself and in the garage. It is not that great for real gigs. Another problem is it makes a lot of unwanted noise.

Perfect for anyone!

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

This amp is great for many reasons. It has a great rich tone for any bass player. It has decent settings. The thing I personally don't like is the tilt thing, but that is my opinion. It is also very heavy, but you will get use to it. You are able to hear your self with a loud drummer and guitar players. Another great feature is the limiter, this helps you in many ways. I play with a fender Jazz bass and it sounds awesome. Overall this is great bass amp for your room and garage/band practice.

Nice Beginer Amp

By bandman269

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I like this amp a lot. I keep it at my drummer's house for use at practice and it works great for it. Definetly not too loud, dosen't work too good for a gig amp. You can't here it at all outdoors. I have been playing bass for 29 years now, and out of all the smaller bass amps I own, this has to be one of my favorites.

NO!!

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

Ok, I', tellin this to you cus i like you. This amp doesn't cut it. For one, it sounds like crap. as soon as you get the the higher volume levels (7-8), you get distortion, and not that good distortion i might add. you get a lot of hum and the tilte feature is pointless, cus if you try to use it as an active monitor, you get feedback. my advise: get a better brand, it might cost you a little more, but then you won't need to write a bad review about it later.

For the price, this amp can't be beat

By JonPCab

from S.F, CA

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I bought this amp on a whim, I didn't even know what brand it was until I got home!I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not a fan of Ibanez at all, but when I got home and plugged it in to test it and, for only 35watts, this thing has some power! It produces a nice, crisp, clean tone. Very punchy and a lot of bottom end for what it is. My Stingray actually sounds BETTER in it when I'm in my room or garage then my big expensive SWR rig! Does this mean I'll switch to Ibanez and dump SWR? NOT A CHANCE! However, for small jams and practices this little guy gets the job done. Also, it can lean back which is great, too, because now it works really well as a monitor when my band performs!

Great 4 Practice- Thats it!

By Imbesoul Bass

from L.A.

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

This was my first bass amp. It sounds great when practicing solo, but when I tried to play with a drummer, not so good. It has great features like the tilt back, great as a stage monitor, the cd input is great when you want to learn a new song. I like the quality and the sound, so I'm going to step up to the SW100.

great amp for band practice

By ibnz 300

from jacksonville

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

this is a great amp for pretty much anything except gigs. the only bad thing that i have experienced is a slight buzzing all you have to do to solve that problem is move it away from the place that its plugged in to and the buzzing stopped imideiatly. It tilts back which is a great feature. it also gets very loud for the size of it it made the windows in the room i was in rattle and no one else was there. (it wasnt just a little rattling either) all in all its a great amp for anything

perfect practice amp

By FatBottomEnd88

from Memphis,TN

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

this is the perfect amp for small basement and garage practices. it's great for bass players who play with a real beefy punchy kind of tone or for noodly bass players with really intricate bass lines. but if you want an amp for anything besides small venues or practices you should go with the 100 watt.

neighbor killer

By ampkiller

from new orleans

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

good amp for beginners or for a quiet jam. To loud and it gets a little hazy. The controls are easy and the kickback is very useful. I used my pre-amp with it to see if it would blow up and suprisingly it didn't. The best for the price, not a big gig sound but will annoy the nieghbors so i guess it does it's job.

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

This amp is quite cheap for 35 watts, and well built for the price, as well. I practiced with my band, and couldn't hear myself over the drums. If you want a good practice amp, this is for you. but that's just it.

excellent!!!

By KresoBassman

from Europe, Croatia, Zagreb

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

I use it for a backstage monitor and home practice too. In backstage 3kW PA system, during the live performance, it is loud enough. The best part is the 10" coax speaker, it gives you clear tone definition in very loud stage conditions!!! I play it with my Warwick Streamer Stage 1 and the combination is excellent.

heavy as crap 35 watt

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ibanez SW35 35 Watt Bass Amp:

It is a nice amp and it will handle everyday practice. But carrying it is another story. The thing weighs like 40 or 45 pounds. It is heavy. I had to carry it a block. But great bass.
