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.

Ibanez TB100 Slant Cab HalfStack

By GuitarShredder7B

from Wilmington, NC

I have just purchased this amp used with the cab. I have to say it is a very good amp. The clean channel is awsome and the overdrive is ok to. The only major problem was feedback........ i would have to stand like 10 feet back with gain almost nothing at volume 8 to get no feedback. i mean what do you expect its a stage amp not somthing in a garage or shed. Its ment to be played in big areas. I think its up with the fenders and marshalls. I recomend this as a first half stack :]

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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.

Nice...

By Fast_Fingers_Dave

from Panama City Fl.

i am in a local rock band called imprint and i am the lead guitarist and i use this with a full stack, you just need to know the tones better, dont always go by the book, this is a nice head i recomend it, it shreeks a little but you will lear to change tone, and you will have no problem with it.

Quality components, Great price

By Paradiddler

from Minneapolis, MN

I am an amp and effects techician specializing in modifications of solid state effects peda. I am also a guitar and bass player. I have to say that for the money this head has alot going for it. First of all are the quality components within the amp; JRC4558 chips,metal film capacitors, high quality integrated circuits for the output section, and circuit design that is built on Ibanez's history as a pedal producer. Some say the distortion channel and reverb do not sound all that good. If one can resist turning the gain to 10 and uses a bit of restraint the distortion channel is really quite good when driven by a good pedal. The reverb is low cost and only provides good minimal reverb, but is adequate for most metal music use. I especially like the compression that both channels develop when being pushed by overdrive or distortion pedals. This compression is very natural and tube sounding, something you do not expect from solid state. I own three of these units and have only installed better reverbs in them. They work for all my music types; rock, classic rock, metal, blues, and clean playing styles. I would buy another without hesitating.

Great equipment.

By Tone Freak-lln-O

from Tyler, Tx

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.

not good at all!!!!

By cripple

from SC

ok i had just sold my peavey transtube combo and im buying new equipment t and i tried this amp out at a music store cuz its cheap and wouldnt hurt to try it out and when i did , i think i can find better distortion on a 30 watt amp this thing had horrible feedback, and just crackling and just overall not good at all, my suggestion go buy a marshall mg100 or a peavey amp or something not this

tone blaster

By soundheavy

from san antonio,tx

I own this amp with cab as well its pretty descent if u dont play hardcore or metal/core or if ur looking for that heavy sound unless u want to go out of the way and buy other pedals n stuff plus u get a lot of feedback my bandmate has a line 6 combo 120 watts and i still cant hear my self at times if u want a heavy sound get tube amps if u cant afford it the line 6 spider 3 is a good deal which i am aiming for.

not bad

By Thunderkiss365

from NH

Great head if you're matching it to a ibanez (or similar) cabinet. I'm running mine through a behringer cab and the ibanez just isn't putting out enough power for the cab, so according to my cab....its a weak head.
