I have owned my TB25R for about a year and a half now. Pro's: You can definitely crank the volume way up for a 25watt amp; The reverb and the equalizer is a nice touch, both work fairly well; When activated, the overdrive produces a nice tone (for a solid state) Con's: Very hard to control overdrive. Unless you have an external distortion producing pedal, this is not an amp you should use for anything except practice, unless you don't plan on using a distortion at all; It is an Ibanez-- Their guitars are off the hook, but the company just doesn't have the experience that other companies like Marshall (!!!) or Peavy or even Fender has. Overall,as far as jamming in your room by yourself this is a great amplifier. Great for college students with not a lot of $$ or room to spare.

I suppose you could say that this is an alright amp for beginners, for the money. The clean channel is really pretty good, you can get some nice sounds from it. Quite unfortunately, the overdrive channel is really bad. It's ridiculously hard to control, and the feedback is outrageous. To get good distortion you'll have to get a boss pedal or something, but even then its hard to deal with the feedback. The reverb effect is pretty good. Also on the flip side, this amp will get REALLY loud for a 25 watt. Once again, this is a decent beginner amp for the money

The Little Amp That Can

By EcIsGod45

from Chicago, IL

I've been practicing, and even playing some small gigs with this little amp. The clean channel comes out with a nice thick sound when turned up. I can't say I've ever really had a problem with it over the last six years. The crunch can deliver a pretty good blues drive, although I generally run an effects pedal through it to get a solid sound. Fun for practice and possible small stages.

This amp is good enought for practice but if you you want to play in small gigs or your friends is not enought. But has a great tone for practice and the reverb is better than other amps. Just good enoght to sustain you and excelent overdrive chanel.

This beast is LOUD! I jam with my drummer friend and with this amp on 75% volume we can both hear my guitar loud and clear (and we're about 6 feet away from each other). Not great for gigs, but it has a great tone. The overdrive sounds really similar to the BOSS SD-1, but its hard to control. If your looking for a great practice amp, or an amp to mic and use as a moniter, this is a great choice!

The Little Monster

By GuitarShredder7B

I believe this amp was my second amp I ever owned. I remember HATING it because I was a distortion junky, and the overdrive did not cut it for me... But I threw a Eminence Ram-Rod Speaker in it and also bought a Metal- Muff, and look 8 years later, it sounds BETTER than when I bought the thing o.o It really is a great amp... Untouched, the clean channel is beautiful, and the overdrive is good for blues... Still not loud enough to play over my drummer though.

Jeez I have had this amp forever now (6-7 yrs? maybe 8), it's my second amplifier (first I bought myself). I have never had a problem with it , I have done soo much with this little amp. Everyone else is right too , it's fairly loud for what it is. I still play this amp all the time . Various tonal capability, very decent.

Awesome little amp

By Reject

i've had this little amp for nearly 4 years now and it's still awesome loud as hell. The distortion sucks pretty bad but a Boss pedal or somthing can fix that.. but overall has great sound and is built like a tank it fell over in the back of my dads car really hard and still works to this day soo if your stuck to a budget i recomend getting this amp!

Being a family man, I'm limited on the funds, and this provided more bang for the buck that I could actually get past the wife. I recommend it.Great for just jammin' and getting the wife out of the house.

no amp is perfect but this is close

By Goochy-D4V.b

from Dirty South Louisiana

See all my reviews

This little amp can put out some serious power. The size and price of this thing is way underrated. I would pay much more for this amp is a second. I started playing guitar and all i had was some piece of junk silvertone and a wanna be multi-effects pedal. My neighbor lent me this amp and i will always admire that. It puts out more crunch and kick that anybody would beleive even with the guitar i was playing it with. The distortion is alright i guess but i would prefer a boss pedal with it but be careful, this thing will kick some nasty feedback if your pedal's distortion or treble is too high. Buy this amp if you're a beginner, it's the best combo amp i've ever played, and that's comparing it to my buddy's marshall. Don't hesitate to buy this amp...

alright amp

By Kev-mo2xT

from New York, NY

See all my reviews

I tried this amp from my friend and it's sounds great for a 25 watt, the distortion is a little choppy but I'm a picky person anyways, only problem I have is the feedback problem, it does that alot and I usually need to keep a 3 feet buffer zone from the front of the amp, this problem can be reduced by eliminating the reverb, but overall this is an alright amp.

Ibanez Tone blaster 25R

By ToastyTofu

I actually quite liked this amp. It is an awesome practice amp for its price with great features including a 3 band EQ and spring reverb... Although it has broken down only once in the past once in the last (almost) 3 years...

This amp is one of the best amps I have ever used.

By JettBoy911

from Boothwyn, PA

I have used many different types of amps, such as marshall's, crate's, and some others, and this compares pretty well with them. It is definately better than the smaller wattage marshall's such as the 15 watt and the 30 watt. Although the crate's have a little bit of a better sound to them, the price on this blows them out of the water. Buy this amp

Awesome Deal

By Ryanjon5150

I've had this little amp for six years now and i've kranked on it alot with no problems. Great for practicing. This thing is LOUD for a 25 watter. Clean channel is really great and the reverb feature works well. The only bad thing i have to say is that the overdrive isn't very flexable. A cheap Boss Distortion pedal fixes that for less that $40. Great Deal!!!

Great Amp

By I_like_it_loud86

from lake charles, louisiana-The LC nigga

the only reason i agve the amp a 5 for features is because it just has distortion and reverb, but that's all i really use. i don't use the onboard distortion, but it's amazing. it has a nice sharp metal edge to it. i can't use some guitars with this amp because of too mcuh of a bassy sound-but this amp is great for small gigs. it's a durable as hell amp too.

Very nice. For such a little amp, this thing puts out soooo much power. If you can buy it, do so. The overdrive is great, and it really brings out the tone in your guitar. Beautiful.

I have had this amp for 3 months now and it suits all of my needs for small gigs. Would be better if the speaker cab didnt rattle so much with the bass turned up
