SOUNDS

I tested it in store, I just fiddled the knobs, but I have not had time to go. Anyway the little I have heard I was not convinced at all ...
Either the sound is not bad, the sound is quite nice and warm. But everything is a little deaf, and drowns the bass and mids in a boiling unpleasant, especially in chords or arpeggios.
The dynamics of your game is too soft for my taste, as if smothered.
I do not see too what else that can play jazz on it, because we find this sound with limited medium like so many jazz musicians, but his lack of dynamic condemns certainly be quickly placed into oblivion.

OVERALL OPINION

I have a T.20 I find admirable, and I wanted even more powerful group to play ... But I was disappointed. The S.80 retains this heat (but I found it less attractive all the same as that of T.20) but the dynamics are "deaf" and the sound is unclear, arpeggios sound a bit messy, even playing with settings anything done. Therefore impossible to use the S.80 group in my opinion, the frequencies of other instruments certainly will eventually drown the sound in a slurry unlistenable. In the limit if we do that solo, it can happen, and yet, as I said the momentum is too "eaten" by the speaker.
So, I kept my T.20 for possible acoustic gigs and home use (its power is perfect for this) and I dropped him to the S.80 preferred a less warm but marshall AS100D much more effective (not the same price either ... almost double).
I have not tested enough amp in this price range, but for me and amp is unusable as a group, what it appears to have been made.

Magic! (Ibanez - T20)

By sydn, 04/07/2012
20W transistor amp.
A jack classical guitar with EQ (bass, treble, mid-frequency adjustment with midrange-), Flight, Chorus (Phaser) (to trigger on the amp, no switch included).
A microphone XLR input with Tone and Volume.
Master Reverb and applying the two channels.
Button "shape".
RCA auxiliary input for CD/MP3.
headphone output on the back.

UTILIZATION

By setting all the middle to start testing the beast, I've been surprised by the sound, and digging the best option, there really are opportunities!
The manual is perhaps a bit simplistic, but at the same time not need many words: the interface is very intuitive.

SOUNDS

Incredible!
Such a sound in such a small thing!?
It is superb, the sound is warm, beautiful, perfect for jazz or folk. May be less effective for the country because too round, but I was really impressed by his smooth suave of this amp.
The sound is colorful but respects the particularities of each guitar (I have a Variax, and the amp perfectly follows each change).
The chorus is a chorus-phaser than a chorus, which may displease me I'm fine. The reverb is OK, but intended to give depth, if you push too to give a hovering effect, it is less pleasant.
Button shape is useful (but to enable on the amp), to have more rounded edges (but personal, I think they are enough without him, so I almost never use it).
His power is limited and can not play with a battery, only sound I tried to push the volume, we really pert as after a while, the sound becomes loud enough, we feel that the amp is running out ...
Nevertheless, if we stay at a reasonable power, the T.20 has a deep, warm and precise, which maintains a dynamic decent and the signal of each instrument.

OVERALL OPINION

I had the opportunity to test his big brother, S.80, to play in groups with the same sound and I was disappointed. The S.80 retains this heat (but I found it less attractive anyway) but the dynamics are "deaf" and the sound is unclear, arpeggios sound a bit messy, even playing with the settings there is nothing. Therefore impossible to use the S.80 group in my opinion, the frequencies of other instruments certainly will eventually drown the sound in a slurry unlistenable.
So, I kept my T.20 for possible acoustic gigs and home use (its power is perfect for this) and I dropped him to the S.80 preferred a less warm but marshall AS100D much more effective (not the same price either ... almost double).
For the price and type of use for which it is intended, hard to beat! As I said, it is perfect folk and jazz, for those who love the sounds that have typified the mouth and the softness of both.

Good amp apartment (Ibanez - T20)

By Mourakami33, 13/09/2012
20W transistor amp

jack guitar with 3-band eq (presence of significant medium setting and not so common) flight control and chorus
XLR mic and tone control flight
RCA CD/MP3
6.35 jack for line out or headphones (mutes)

Master Reverb and applying the 2 channels.
Shape mode.

UTILIZATION

The manual is very simple but at the same time there is really nothing to say about the beast. It's simple ergonomic (except the line out jack).

Start with a setting at the center and it sounds good.

Little more, the box for laying cables (it's own in the living room when the machine is not used for a small or transport.

SOUNDS

The sound is fairly balanced at low to medium volume, I have not really tried to push the beast (my neighbors may be grateful). The sound is pleasing, homely little being a tad greasy but it works well with my dryad who has a very clear sound.

Against by the chorus does not have one. I'm not sure exactly what it is actually like effect and at the same time I do not use and the mode shape.

So I use mostly the reverb (approx. 1/4) which gives a little depth to the sound.

OVERALL OPINION

3 weeks. I tried AS50 but the format of the troubadour in addition to these other qualities has finally prevailed.
This amp is very accessible financially, especially as I had used less than 100 €.

Excellent! (Ibanez - T80N)

By greg0477, 14/04/2013
• Power: 80W
• HP 10 "coaxial tweeter
• 2 independent channels
• 2 instrument inputs (6.35mm jack), 2 mic XLR phantom power option, one auxiliary input (mini jack 1/8 ")
• Headphone output, line output
• Reverb and chorus controllable independently for each channel
• controls low, medium, acute
• phase inversion, notch filter and mute
• Tilt Cabinet

Config very simple, clear manual
Very easy to use it is a treat,
I love this amp that n'à nothing to envy of much more expensive amps and subtlety which does not justify the price difference
Nothing to say about the effects it is very transparent and the reverb is beautiful

In terms of style I play pure blues and jazz da variety thus
great versatility, and no more constraints lamps so no risk for transport ...)

UTILIZATION

I use it with 2 guitars and a Taylor C410 Taylor gs mini (yes I like Taylor)
Do not forget that if the guitar is bad the sound is very bad!
therefore testing with minimum average ranges of guitars (ie above 500 €)
or who have a piezo tiend the road.
sounds are very clean and clear, the guitar fit perfectly into the mix as well as microphones and bass are always delicious.

In rehearsal, I'm always surprised by the sound quality!
-In concert resumed on a sound and it is a treat when there is no sound there is enough powerful with 80 W so it Roll!

What is best to have two separate channels in (2 XLR jack and 2)
In the more entrèe with separate volume is a real asset which makes it 3 channels!
If you want the same thing in AER must add over 1000 €!
So the amp to an extensive connection!
In terms of pedals I need because the sounds of the amp suits me perfectly, I use the reverb and chorus of the amp and it is spot on!
I just kept a boss blues driver for light crunch
and a tuner pedal

SOUNDS

Really cut out for the stage rehearsal and I also used my home, even with 80 watt it is quite possible to manage the volume

OVERALL OPINION

So you understand I am very satisfied!
