Product Description

The Ibanez TSA5 combo guitar amplifier combines the genuine sound of an all-tube guitar amp with the classic sound of a TS9 Tube Screamer distortion circuit. The result: a super-portable 5-watt tube combo amp that gives you absolutely incredible overdrive tone. Plug in, fire it up, and prepare to blown away! Five watts may not sound impressive, but the TSA5's tone it absolutely HUGE! It's the perfect amp for recording or playing smaller gigs, where a full-sized monster amp would pummel your audience into the fetal position. (If that's what you're going for, you might want to check out the TSA5's big brothers, the TSA15 and the TSA30). What's more, the TSA5 features a genuine Celestion speaker, so even without the Tube Screamer circuit engaged, you've got yourself a truly classic-sounding tube amp. Get your Ibanez TSA5 tube combo amp from GearNuts.com today!

I'm still pinching myself.

The tube screamer gives a wide range of really classic sort of crunching sounds.

Has those tube tones that no solid state amp can produce.

I have no idea why these aren't completely sold out. This is the perfect practice/small space amp. I compared many other options- Orange Micro Terror, Bugera V5, VHT Special 6, Blackstar HT-1 and 5, Vox AC-tv 4, and a few others. You can't beat this for the price even if you are just paying for the tube amp itself. But you also get the Tube Screamer which is $100+ stand alone. And I got it from Geartree via Amazon and they threw in a Planet Waves tuner [$50] and a 10% off certificate. So basically I got a tube amp for $30. I'm still pinching myself. And yes, the sound is fantastic. Great mellow, classic tone all the way through crunchy overdrive as you'd expect. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

This is my first all tube amp! I play bass mainly and solid state amps work absolutely perfect for a gigging bassist. No complaints there... but then I started channeling Duane Allman and starting to learn slide guitar... I was in desperate need for a real guitar amp and full tube if I could get the right price. Let me tell you, many of the other amps under $300 (under $200 for this amp) claiming to be tube.. turn out to be only hybrids (which equates to a single 12AX7 at the preamp and having a solid state power section). Now let us do some simple approx. math... Planet Waves tuner ($50 value), build in TS9 circuit ($100 value), and then you are paying the difference of $30 for the rest of it... a white tolex covered w/ black grill cloth, 10" Celestion speaker, the tube chassis, 12AX7 (preamp), 6V6 (power section).. basically a working 5w all tube amp for $30.... this is a no brainer.. I am about to use my 10% coupon that came with it to by another one and run them stereo with a Morley switch pedal I have.

This is a great little amp! I will update this review if anything changes because I just got it today, but It really exceeds my expectations. I own a 50 watt 2x12 combo EL84 tube amp that is just way, way, way to loud to practice with. After reading some forums and reviews on other sites I decided to get the TSA5. Also, based on some things I read, I swapped out the stock Ruby tubes with a set of JJs, both the pre amp and power tubes. (The Rubys and JJs are definitely not the same tubes, at least in my case, as there is some discussion online that JJ's and Ruby's are the same tube re-branded.) Anyway, with the stock tubes I had a chance to crank it up with my tele. The amp was not as loud as I thought it would be. Still, the tone was nice, After I swapped out the tubes, the amp seemed to "open up" for me a little. I played with a 335 clone, but because it was late I could not crank it, but I could tell it would be noticeably louder. Regardless, I didn't buy the amp to be loud. I bought it so I could drive the tubes and not bother the neighbors or my family too much. There are a lot of tonal possibilities with and without the Tube Screamer engaged. I mostly play classic rock and blues and am getting into jazz. I was able to get some tones I really love! Up until now I've been using a Roland Micro Cube RX as a practice amp, and the TSA5 sounds so much better to me. I did my "research" on this amp, comparing it to the Vox AC4, Gretch version of the Champ 600 and the Buguera V5. Frankly, they all seem to be great amps, and there are several other nice Class A 5 watters out there. All I can say is I am stoked with my purchase, especially for the price and the fact that you get a 10" Celestion speaker and the TS9 circuit built around a Champion 600 designed Class A amp, then $30 bucks for the new tubes and 5 minutes to replace them. Thanks for reading.

Update, August 30. I have been able to crank the amp a few times. Love it.

Wow! As a previous reviewer stated, I can't believe these aren't sold out.

Genuine tube warmth and tone, and the Tube Screamer circuit is a real bonus. This amp is versatile, Delicious cleans and nice breakup when pushed. Has those tube tones that no solid state amp can produce. Plenty of volume for practice, recording, or informal jam sessions. I play Strats, and single coil pickups just don't sound right unless played thru tubes (should be law). I'm so impressed with this little amp that I'm going to purchase one of its bigger siblings for playing live.

Incredible value for the money- current promotion even includes a $50 tuner when you use promo code. Amp is made in Indonesia, NOT China (thank you!).

Well done Ibanez!
