Real Tube Screamer Sound!

The Ibanez TSA15H amplifier head combines real all-tube tone with the classic distortion and drive of a TS9 Tube Screamer pedal. A pair of 12AX7s and a pair of 6V6 power tubes drive the TSA15H, providing gentle breakup when pushed. For rich fuzz and gritty overdrive, kick on the Tube Screamer circuit. Dual operation (15-watt pentode or 5-watt triode) gives you even more flexibility, allowing you to dial in the headroom you need to play in many different environments. Matched up with a TSA112C speaker cabinet, the TSA15H has enough output to comfortably carry midsize and larger venues. If you're looking for a flexible tube amp head for a great price, then the Ibanez TSA15H is an excellent choice.

After having the amp for a month I want to update my review. After installing better tubes, anyone can do it, and putting a delay in the effects loop and finding the right settings for the tube screamer, I like all three knobs at one o'clock I honestly think its the best sounding amp I ever owned. I cannot believe the price tag, that's just my opinion though and it depends on what music you play but I plan on buying another one and just keeping it in the box. I'm actually afraid of it being discontinued.

Ibanez Hits One Outta The Park

Before purchasing the 15H I head read several product reviews on it. The main beef folks seemed to have was the sequence of the FX in relation to the Tube Screamer. I initially found this to be a bit irritating too. However, my solution was to put a gain boost in the loop (set pretty high) and not use the Screamer that much. I get a very natural tube breakup that way, which is exactly what I need! I can add fuzz, Screamer or whatever ITB when recording or at the end of the loop. Lots of options. This amp is a ton more usable than the Vox, Kustom and Line 'hybrid' amps I have owned. BTW I am using it with a 4 X 12" cab, and at 15w it's crazy loud! So much fun, and very flexible. I see myself using the Ibanez TSA 15H for many years to come. Thanks, Sean Geyer and Sweetwater!

TSA15H - Wow!!

I was hoping this would be something to run my Mustang Floor Through - it does work great for that, but I have been enjoying plugging straight into the amp and using the built-in TS! No regrets

Out Fenders Fender

Had been looking for the "Fender" sound. Actually initially bought a Fender Supersonic. The Supersonic hissed on the clean channel and if you turned the reverb up past 2, the hum was so loud, it was horrible, especially considering its over a grand for the amp. Had heard about the Ibanez TSA series of amps. Bought the TSA15 head & matching 1x12 cab. It's a 1 channel amp, with a Tubescreamer in the amp. The clean channel is warm, musical and quiet. I haven't used the onboard TS, as I have a pedal. At 15w, its perfect for home use, but could be used out if mic'd. The best part is it takes pedals like a champ. I am running a Wampler Tumnus, Clarksdale and Deluxe Plexi through it and they just sing. For 1/2 the cost of Fender, the Ibanez is a superior amp, IMHO.

Two things you should know

The two things you should know about this amp: 1. It produces a good, full tube tone at a volume level that can be controlled and comfortable. 2. It has lots of headroom, which is often overlooked and underappreciated; I run an OCD pedal direct and a TC Helicon through the effects loop and have yet to push the amp too hard. I bought this as a sub for my Traynor custom valve Blue 50 watt combo, which needs to be cranked to produce good tone. This Ibanez TSA15H gets the tone right without having to rattle the windows or irritate the neighbors. I have it set at 5 watts and it is plenty loud enough for studio use. At 15 watts, it could handle smaller venues, or be mic'd for larger gigs, or tick off the neighbors.
