More compact and lighter in weight, with more tone control.
The Ibanez SWX65 is a 65W bass combo amp with a 12" speaker. The SWX65 bass amp also has a piezo horn tweeter for extended frequency response as well as an active 3-band EQ for dialing in your sound. Other features include a tweeter on-off switch, effects Send and Return, a tilt bar for better monitoring during performance, and a line out.
Internal auto compression circuitry, one of the features found in all the SWX Series bass amplifiers, minimizes distortion and keeps the sound clean and powerful. The Ibanez SWX65 also has a HUE control that adjusts overall tonal character. A Bright switch changes the sound from that of a passive bass to that of an active bass, while a Shape switch gives you a high and low boost and mid-cut sound.

well, i'd like to say i got this amp to try and get a fieldy sound from korn, i just randomly got it because of the tweeter(which fieldy uses), i guess to me i feel like i get clicky sounds to it. Then later like about 5 months later, i used a pod 2 and my Rg7321, and bam!, i made an awesome pantera sound, so if your a guitarist looking at this, get it if u have a pod because it sounds really good. and it kinda makes a meshuggah tone, in a way.
Awesome amp,our band uses it for everything from rehearsals to live tone and the quality is just pure genius.we've hooked up tons of different basses to guitars,vocals,keyboards and plain mp3 output - sounds great and the horn does an amazing job.we recommend this amp for anyone that fits the budget.
Haven't played bass for years and decided to get back into it. Was out auditioning basses in the local music shop and found the combination that clicked for me.This amp is amazing, the tone shaping lets you go from clean to totally wild, the compression circuit keeps the distortion you want and gets rid of any accidental noise in your sound. Bright and shape buttons make huge changes in the sound and the three band EQ lets you twist and mold the response curve from flat to sick... with the "hue" control changing the tonal coloration at the end of the preamp adjustments.If that's not enough you can do things like switch off the tweeter and use just the 12" driver.I picked up the Ibanez GSR200 bass as well, with an active preamp/EQ, independent adjustments on both pickups, and a "Phat II" Base Boost... They complement and work very well with each other.I'm looking forward to relearning my bass chops and getting a lot of enjoyment out of this gear.BTW, plugging in my HSS Strat and experimenting with the possibilities of the Bass Amp/Guitar combo is even more fun. That piezo tweeter and huge driver support a nearly flat response from the lowest bass note past the 20th fret on the Strat...I'm gonna be getting an A/B switch and be able to swap the Bass and Guitar to take advantage of the amazing sounds available.
This is a great amp for getting your sound. It's so simple, you just dial the settings in, and it just does the work! It's like a second voice. Great punch and response for slap 'n' pop, but is still well rounded at just about everything else. It is a little big for me though, because I've got little upper body strength and it makes it harder to carry. The tilt stand is sturdy and reliable, just don't use it as a handle. Also the tweeter works well. My only complaint is that I have a Valve Junior Head (Tubes can work for bass too!) and the cable from the speaker isn't long enough to reach the input jack on my Valve Junior.
I got this amp last week (Ibanez SWX65 65 Combo). I was debating whether or not to purchase this amp because there were only two reviews written about it, and I haven?t heard anything about this amp. But I decided to get it because Musicians friend gives forty-five days to check it out, and if I don?t like it I?ll send back. So I ordered it. When I took this amp out of the box, I fell in love with the Amp look. I couldn?t wait to hook up my five string bass and play through this amp. I was impressed with each dial tone sounds. With other amps I own (over a span of twenty years) in the past, once I get the sound I wanted from the treble, mids, lows, and highs I normally don?t change from it. But with this amp there are so many sounds that I love. I can?t make up my mind what sound I want to use when playing because I like the different tones. This is a good problem to have.
Many good tones to choose from. Not quite as bass heavy as some of the dozen or so other amps I tried from the SWR 10 to a Markbass but overall I prefer the Ibanez' tones to any of them. It has near-perfect tones for both my Warwick Corvette and my fretless Jazz. Best value I've encountered in 35 years of equipment purchases.
