I have had this amp since December 30th of 2005. It is right now March 20th 2006. I have played this amp for three years though. My fellow guitarist in my band has the Tone Blaster 2x12 combo, but he bought the Tone Blaster 4x12 cabinet and combined them to make 6 speakers. I own the slanted half stack. You can acheive anything with this head. Forget about the negative stuff that other people told you about this head. You must have the patience to sit and work with the settings to achieve the sound you want, just like with any other head. I have the perfect setting for me, and it only took a couple of seconds. The sound that comes out of this head is straight up HEAVY. They named this amp "Tone Blaster" for a reason. My settings are: Presence-10, Treble-10,Middle-from 0-2, Bass-from 7-10 and this is perfect for heavy rhythm-type playing, and if you want to bust into leads in a mere instant, all you have to do is hit the Mid button on the footswitch and you'll just cut right through everything. It has a nice, tight, bassy bottom end, and a crisp, bright top. I thought that the head sucked because I thought that because I was having feedback, but it was because of my other guitar's cruddy pickup. I personally think that this head sounds similar to a Mesa Rectifier, but remember that this head actually does have its own sound and isn't meant to imitate anything. Its nice and beefy, it has a nice, slicing sound if you turn down the mids. The clean channel is beautiful. I think there is one problem with the clean though: it's tha5t it's too trebly, and the slightest touch of the strings just blasts in your ears, but all I do is turn down the treble knob just a little and the problem is history. No other amp's clean channel sounds like it.It's a very nice sound. And that's just the head. If you stand in front of the cabinet with the boost on and volume on merely 3, you feel like you are about to go sterile! This thing is big and LOUD. It has a huge bassy tone. A lot of users of this amp say that it is perfect for metal. It doesn't only work for metal and heavy stuff. It is perfect for everything, it just so happens that it does indeed sound amazing with heavy stuff. I love this guitar amp so much and I will never play another amp. Great job Ibanez.

My friend left this half stack at the place where me and my band practice and I had an opportunity to test thing thing out. I wasn't impressed. When I played through it, I saw that he had the mid turned all the way down and the bass and treble up completely, so I figured that was the reason for it sounding so horrible. I fiddled with the setting for awhile and couldn't really get any kind of tone out of it at all. I should also mention that the sound projection from the cab is horrible. to hear anything you have to literally be parallell with it. I guess this would be okay for metal or something.

I have a recording & rehearsal studio.During the selection for the gear of my studio,I was focused on Marshall JCM2000-TSL100 but changed my mind when I saw this perfect amp.I have two halfstacks of these monsters and my clients are so satisfied with them. Excellent distortion & reverb, wide tonal parametrics,amazing durabilty with such a low price.I made a fortune via hiring them as backline equipments.If there is only one guitar player in the band,I connect the amps. tru send-return to make a full stack in the rehearsals.As a result,I think that this gear should have to be much more expensive...:)
I work at a music store where we own a couple of these stacks. I've played around on them and noticed that the amp has way to much high end! I messed around with the amp for some while and I juist think that the amp has poor sound... If your looking for a great cheap stack then go with Crate, but save your money and don't buy this.
This is all around ok. It's a bit expensive but don't over look it based on that. Short of a few feautes, but all in all, a beautiful sound and a beautiful piece of equipment
I got this amp on christmas, it is great, best amp I have probably played to date.
it will be even better if it has effects like (delay, chorus, flange, etc...) everything is just so perfect! you can't find a better one under $1000!!!
I play through an Ibanez SZ720 to the toneblaster halfstack... I'm likin it! Im not much of a gear head... but Ive got an ear, and the sounds are good! I've played out with it twice... I'm happy, my bands happy... life is good with Ibanez by my side!
You can not beat this AMP for the price. It's got a great heavy crunch sound, VERY HEAVY, from METALLICA to DISTURBED tones. Great for SHREDDERS, too, as it has TONS OF GAIN. My only gripe is that the amp is a bit noisy. But that can be overlooked for the steal of a value. The TONE is there, it's LOUD, and looks cool, too. I tried TUBE HEADS & other SOLID STATE heads, even the more expensive heads didnt sound this good. I would recommend this AMP COMBO for anyone not wanting to spend a lot of money just for an amp's FAMOUS NAME. Try out this one first, it's a great value.
this half stack is a good beginers half. if your a big giger i dont recomend it. the cab is tuff and handles alot. but the head , although it has a very good sound, it has that 80's butt rock sound to it. witch i love, just isnt very dependable. creates alot of problems over time. iv owned it for about 8 months. i loved it at first but then it sounded like it just started to lose pawer. and the clean channel over time started getting raspy.... cabs though...VERY good qualitie cabs. i dunno..buy it i guess if ur low on money , its good for poor people.
Wow, I almost threw away my money on MG series Marshall. I was going to mix match a Marshall cabinet and a Crate head. There's actually a review with someone who did the same thing (It's about the same price) I was going to do. They said it sounded muddy and that the head was fine with another cabinet. Anyway, about the stack at hand...it's power is killer I can rock out with my whole band at volume 5 if I do anymore I drown them out with them cranking it. The only thing it lacks is the third solo channel however I am rhytme and I have no use for it. I disagree with the other reviews on the overdrive not sounding good. Yeah, I use my on Warp Factor pedal cause I like a heavy distortion however I like to change it up so I kick the overdrive for a punk or alternative sound, it sounds perfect. Crank the bass, drop the Mid, and Crank the High...scooping as some call it. Amazing price, great sound, and the wonderful saying, "I own a half stack."
This Beast has the most beautiful tones i have heard in a long time. This along with my Fender M-80 acting as a monitor make for the greatest tones of all the amp combos i have ever played
