For over 30 years, the Ibanez TS808 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 grille, 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.

The TSA5TVR is an all-tube, Class-A, 5-watt combo with a genuine TS808 Tube Screamer built into the front end of the amp. Accessible by a control panel toggle switch or an IFS1G footswitch (not included) the TS808 circuit is a perfect match for the 12AX7 preamp tube and the 6V6GT power tube. It's loaded with an 8" Jensen C8R speaker, selected for its excellent response to overdrive distortion and the built in Accutronics Reverb delivers the smoothest spring reverb in the industry. Also features an External Speaker out, Headphone out and a direct Line out.

      Comments about Ibanez TSA5TVR 5W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      Ibanez TSA5TVR 5 Watt Amp

      Hands down, the worst piece of musical equipment I've bought in my 50 years of playing! A total 'lemon', this amp stopped working within the first month. Turn on, play five minutes, the amp is done! My first one shut down and refused to play. After returning it to my local guitar shop, and a good shop it is, I got an even exchange for a new one! Great! After a couple weeks, this one also, began to sputter. The TS unit stopped functioning!

      I was so exasperated that I returned it. This time I never should've accepted the offer, but I did. I got a third Tube Screamer amp. Now, six months later, it looses power, gradually fades, becoming silent after a few moments. Switching it off and on again sometimes brings it back to full volume, but not at all today. Then, running at a quarter of its usual, even turning it up all the way, the struggling amp lost its reverb. This is too much!

      Three amps! All were sour grapes! I've tried everything, although there isn't much trouble shooting a person can do. I've left it on for hours. Often has reverb, often not. Sometimes it operates, sometimes not. Sorry Ibanez, you CANNOT build amps! Three strikes and you're out. FAIL ...!

        Comments about Ibanez TSA5TVR 5W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        This amp sounds Way Cool on the clean setting and responds well with my entire pedal board. The Reverb is Outstanding. And when I'm just plugging into the amp, the Tube Screamer section does an OUTSTANDING job of creating a wealth of sounds limited only by the number of guitars you own...each guitar takes on it's own characteristics with this amp and the amp loves them all. Plays great soft and LOUD. Quite powerful for 5 Watts. And, it's the cutest darn thing ever. I get LOTS of positive comments on its' looks.
