Ibanez have been showing their TSA5TVR, an all-tube, Class-A, 5-watt combo with a genuine Tube Screamer built into the front end of the amp. They say that, accessible by a control panel toggle switch or an IFS1G footswitch (not included) the Tube Screamer circuit is a perfect match for the 12AX7 preamp tube and the 6V6GT power tube. Ibanez tells us that it's loaded with an 8" Jensen C8R speaker specially tuned for Ibanez, selected for its excellent response to overdrive distortion and the built in Accutronics Reverb delivers the smoothest spring reverb in the industry. The amp also features an External Speaker out, Headphone out and a direct Line out.
A spokesperson had this to say...
"For over 30 years the Ibanez Tube Screamer has been one of the most popular overdrive pedals in the world: a perennial favorite, famous for its warm, creamy tone and unequivocal responsiveness. Now the iconic pedal has found a new home in the TSA5TVR combo amp. This isn't the first time the Tube Screamer has been integrated into an amp, but it is the first time it has ever looked this cool! Decked out in cream and sea foam green vinyl, set up on console legs with a TV screen shaped speaker grill, this little amp has got style and attitude to spare. The retro-60's vibe will look great in the office, family room, studio, or well... just about anywhere, but ultimately, it's all about the tone and this tiny titan is packing the goods."
