Tyler.'s review

Small transistor amp of 20W.
There is a between the instrument and possibly a CD player for accompaniment. Headphone jack.
The rglages are entirely conventional: volume, bass, mdium, treble, prsence.
The originality comes from the small button "boost" that allows a gain of 10db. Not bad when using a passive bass lacks a bit of EHJV ...

Relativizing the CHARACTERISTICS of this amp, and compared its price and its intended use I think it has done its rle. 10.


The configuration could not be simpler and I have not even taken the time to read the manual.
The midpoint of prsence facilitates "flattening" for those who do their prfrent rglage on the pedals or directly on the bass.

The nickname "default" to have only three bands legalization s'avre be an asset here, we spend less time moving everything to find good sound here is rather imm DAT.
I find that 9 MRIT on this point.


To be clear, this amp is for those who want to play at home or in an apartment without fear of its neighbors dbarquer! Obviously you can always try one with BPS if your drummer is not a fury ^ ^ because despite "only 20w" even when he one in the stomach, helping boost the 10bd greatly necessary.

That said you can do anything with ... I have personal jou both the pop / rock as mtal, the finger, slap, to mdiator it hassle free cash. even in the grave he is doing, the SI is serious plutt much restitution which does not seem a foregone conclusion.
I play both a passive and active that does not note the problem in two cases contrary to what might be ennonc below.
I sometimes use effects and even a good dirty fuzz has come out correctly.

My sound prfre is the one I use for the slap: a low mdium 3 0 prsence a treble but it's a personal taste ^ ^

Restitution is plutt correct overall, as I said it's perfect for home, I put 9.


I use it for several months rpter home. That's what it does and does it well!
The ratio quality price is good because trs in other brands we are left with plutt 10W for the same price.
It is frankly a good choice I would do without hsiter.

I believe that his mission amp home is perfectly satisfied. Ibanez Congratulations!

- Amplification Transistors
- 20W
- From Jack, RCA inputs (only for playback: it amplifies or modifies the sound input by the RCA), Stereo Headphone
-Rglages: volume, bass, mdiums, treble, "Prsence" and a button that provides 10 dB gain and more.


I AIM a line-out (ie other than the headphones that blows a lot) ... but it is true that on the amps of the apartment as they plutt is rare ...
For SETTING THE galisaur is more than enough. The knob "prsence" is a bit of ... He added the breath more than anything else. Peroit I do not really useful.
The gain of 10dB supplmentaire is nice. L also quite a few more blows, but to suggest the space of 2s with an amp that will dcoller walls ... even if it is not the case! punch but suddenly it's more beautiful trs. So not really useful, but it's fun. Be careful though not to use background permanence, you never know.


I use it with precision passive (entry level). I often add a compressor (MULTICOMP EBS), which adds a little punch. The cash amp without problem: aa really look tough.

The treble can be trs slamming, the bass is quite firm for this type of amp.
But watch out for low: basically I think it's risky. As I said, this amp is tough, but it is an amp rpter home, not a BPS too amplifies ...


I have for over a year, and I do it again this election, especially since I got it used (80E) almost new. At this price it's a real bargain. Ms. nine, the report price is trs good quality: this amp is really a thundering 20W, you can have fun with.

boismex's review

Very good little amp transistors 20w (HP 8 "+ tweeter coaxial) with:
- A mono input jack 6.35
- A 10 dB boost
- EQ 3-band bass, middle and trebble
- Stereo
- Headphone stereo jack 6.35
- 20 watts potato issued by an HP 8 "coaxial tweeter

It's been over a year and a half that I use every day at home to train and jsuis not really disappointed by the quality of this amp.


Very easy to use, thoroughly enough to send the amp to be heard next to a battery. By fiddling the knobs at least we get a look quickly. Personally I have never used the stage and I do not think it is to go on stage but it's a really good tool!


Touching a little every knob on the amp comes easily search to find the sound. I use it with a passive bass and I never was disappointed with the amp. Now I play it on a ashdown I immediately saw the difference in the quality of his work but at home it is really the perfect amp.

I used a lot of effect on this amp and it supports the very major part of them. no complaints for the price it is!


It's been a year + so that I use in my amp and Ibanez has fully achieved its mission. He was able to withstand many hours of training and a REPEAT few improvised in the garage. The sound is very accurate and with this little jewelry affordable price you can easily wake the house! After 5-6 months of use I had to buy an Ashdown 300W amp in order to make the scene but I still use the ibanez to train with me and I am fully concquis by the amp. If I had to buy it back I will not eSite!
