Okay, so I'll start off by listing what I use with this head. I have a behringer ultrastack cab and an epiphone LP Studio with an EMG 81 in the bridge.It's the first half stack ive owned and ive been playing it everyday for 6 months. This is a solidstate amp but it has a distinct sound. It's not out there, but its not quite like any other amps. If you have a 4 ohm mono cab you can get it to 120 watts, but if you have a 8 ohm stereo you can get it to 100 watts which is what i have and its loud enough for any show (even when not mic'd). It has more then enough gain to do metal easy. It has 2 features that i love and are hard to find which are: a presence control and a push/pull middle. the presence knob controls the very high frequences making it like a looseness/tightness control. so if you want it looser like haste the day you can do that or if you want it tighter like as i lay dying you can do that too(It really does make your tone sound apart). Next the middle push/pull knob lets you scoop your mids. i just play metal so i keep in pushed in, but if you want more distortion like death metal or something you pull it out and it really makes it heavy. Next is the cleans. I LOVE the cleans. A lot of metal amps have bad cleans, but the cleans on this are in fact better than the distortion (but thats just my opinion). This amp can be frustrating if you dont know how to set you tone, but when you figure it all out it really is a great amp. i suggest setting the presence and gain at 12 o' clock and getting the Treble, Mid and Bass set than going back and turning up the gain and changing the presence.Last and not least the boost function is awsome. its on the head and the pedal that comes with it and it allows you a little bump in volume to do solos or if you realize part way through a song your a little too quiet and want to hear yourself better.

First off, this amp has a sweet metal distortion. It is pretty versatile, but only for different kinds of metal. (which hopefully one would expect from an Ibanez amp) It feeds back more than any amp I have EVER played. I play my Spider 2 half stack with the insane channel gain on 4 or 5 when I play metal, because that is all I need. With this amp, the same could be said, but without the benefit of a built in noise gate. It was feeding back when the volume was at 1 so you understand. The reverb sounds like crap and is only there to make a first time buyer say "ooh, reverb." All in all, what I'm trying to say is that Ibanez are known for their guitars, NOT for their amps. I do not recommend this amp at all. Though I regret saying, a Behringer head would almost sound better than this thing.

This amp is by far the worst I've ever heard. I bought this because I was in need of a head quick since my Marshall broke, biggest mistake I ever made. This amp feeds back WAY TOO MUCH! The only thing that helped a little was the Effects Loop, which I cleaned out a little with my rack. But still, usually people don't have racks and equipment to kill noise, and that's the main problem. Too much feedback.
I've owned this head (and the cab, but thats another story) for around three years now. This thing has been everywhere with me. It's seen many hours of use (and abuse from time to time) and hasn't failed me yet.The head, alone, is a nice buy. It's dependable, pretty durable, and some of it's features are the reason why I've kept this head so long. I do agree with a previous poster; the BBE Sonic Maximizer (I have the 482i), a pretty decent graphic EQ (studio veterans will tell you... three bands are never enough when it comes to tweaking your sound), and a noise gate of some sorts (I'm using a Behringer Feedback Destroyer rack unit) will make this thing shine.Awesome cleans, nice and crunchy on the distortion channel. The boost is a lifesaver sometimes. The reverb - not so much. Effects loop is a good feature. Basically, it is my go-to head no matter the situation.The only thing I would really advise (from experience) is if you plan on recording with this head - use any sort of unit that warms the sound via a tube, even if you have the Sonic Maximizer. You will be glad you did.
I got this amp about a month ago and I couldn't have asked for more. The clean channel is perfectly clear and warm. It keeps its tonal integrity and remains undistorted even at full volume, which is loud enough to shake the floor. The overdrive channel ranges from a mild crunch to full blown distortion. The sustain is amazing, and it is easy to dial into your perfect tone. There is a "mid-shift" that cuts the mids and makes it sound perfect for today's rock/metal sounds. There is also a boost switch that uses another preamp to boost the volume by 6db. The boost switch also makes the clean channel sound like an old school overdriven tube amp. The only drawback I've noticed is that now everyone else's amps in my band seem to be quiet because the power this thing cranks out.
I bought this amp about a month or so ago. When I first got it and i played alone in my room i noticed a lot of feedback so i turned down gain. That really helped but now the overdrive channel barely has any distortion. The clean channel is average. When I started playing with my band again I noticed that it isn't loud at all. It really lacks power. I found out that I really prefer tube amps. I just bought the Crate Blue Voodoo tube amp and that is great. I recommend it to everyone.
Plain and simple this amp kicks ass for heavy metal! The distortion is brutal enough and the clean is clean enough. All i'm sayin' is if your a heavy metal guitarist looking for a pretty good amp for not alot of money atleast think about this one.
i have hda this amp for about two months so far it has not lasted through on practice i sounds better when a bass is played through it a guitar is not the right instrument for this amp it should be sold for basses only
This amp is good for the price. I played a couple of shows with it. It's somewhat gig worthy but it lacked in volume compared to the other guitarist in my group who was using a marshall all tube head. If your in a garage band and lack the money to buy a decent amp to gig with BUY THIS ONE!
This head is by far one of the greats for it's price. I use a digitech rp200 pedal and run that through the clean channel of the amp. This thing in great for metal cause of the hard thumping bass it has. the onboard distortion sucks, but if you have a pedal like me it is one of the best for some one on a tight budget. It is way better than the crate could ever be!
I own this amp, this amp is awesome. The distortion on the amp isn't great, but if you get a sweet distortion pedal (Boss Turbo DS-2 or Big Muff Pi) then this amp shows your audience who's boss. With the settings it has, you have such a wide range. It has a mid shift button so you can shift between a lower tone to a more higher crunchier tone. The mid shift is only good on the distortion. It's sick though. At times you can get some feedback, but it just depends on how close you are to the amp but even then, at the feed back is not bad, it can be really cool at the right time. If you want a stack thats not to expensive but has a lot of power. I highly recommend this amp.to stick with this.
The first time I plugged into this baby, I couldn't believe it was a solid state head. The sound completely blew me away. I've owned Marshall and Randall tube heads before and this sounds just as good or better than anything I have ever played. It has more than enough distortion for even the most hardcore metal, and the clean sound is absolutely terrific. You just can't beat it for the price.
