You seen this yet? Ibanez Tube Amp
I hope they put all the money into the interior components, because the exterior design doesn't look all that impressive.
I've heard about them for over a year now and wanted to try them out. I will have to get a hold of Ibanez and find out the scoop.
Yeah I'm curious to try this amp out as well. Though I must say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Peavey Joe Satriani JSX head!! SWEET SHIT!!!
Well I was invited down to the Ibanez L.A office to demo this amp today, and was really surprised at the tone quality. It has 2 channels one classic and one modern.
The first channel will go from sparkling clean to a gritty Marshall Tone and do both well. It has your usual EQ, Gain, and Volume, and adds a three position bright switch that works really well.
The second will go from gritty to heavy gain and has a very Dual Rectifier sound about it. It comes with the usual EQ, Gain, Volume, and adds a damping switch witch compresses the sound a lot adding more gain.
If I had to sum this amp up I would say it sounds like a Dual Rectifier with more gain, and a better clean channel. While this amp doesn't break any new ground it does offer someone on a buget a good sounding tube amp and a great price.
But is it better than the 15-watter at the studio? That's what I want to know!
comon now!!!! Nothing is better than the 15-watter! Ahahaha
Great hearing that Mike Taft and the gang at Ibanez are taking excellent care of you! Being asked to demo the new amp head must've been a treat! I get my turn to demo it in October for my next clinic here in NJ!!
