I've been through way too many amps in the past year and nothing really gave me the tone I had in my head. Also, some of these amps sounded great but were very one sided. Then, finally I took the plunge on the TSA15 head and cab. So glad I did. This amp is a 6V6 dream come true. Fantastic cleans and nice slight breakup when dimed. Warmth and sparkle at the same time across both the 5 and 15 watt modes. The Tubescreamer is awesome in this circuit and IMO is better than a stomp version because its literally hard wired to the preamp. I'm using mine with a Line 6 M13 in the four cable method and its perfect. I mainly use a Telecaster and the amp is super quiet. Why don't you see these amps on more stages? I think its because many of us equate Ibanez with "shredder". Not the case. This amp is the biggest sleeper on the market. My friend bought one right after I did. Sam Ash was great to work with.
