Product Description

When no other combo will do it's time to turn to the Promethean. With the ability to remove the head from the 1x10 inch cabinet, this amp goes leagues beyond anything you can find in this price range. Leave the cabinet in your practice space and take the Promethean 250/500 Watt amp to your gigs to use with a larger cabinet, or take the whole rig and run the balanced XLR output into the board as a perfect live solution!

Ibanez brings you the Promethean as a boldly creative and defiantly original look at what bass amplification will become. The Promethean is here to deliver power, portability and high fidelity. With its standout fire-red finish and intuitive control design, features a built-in graphic EQ and the unique footswitch-accessible VIBE control for rapid changes between modern and vintage tones.

Light & Compact
The Promethean is considered a Class D amp. During the operation of a Class D amp, the circuitry is switched either on or off, rather than operated in linear mode. This technology allows for its light weight and compact nature, without sacrificing power. The P5110 Combo weighs only 27.6 lbs. The P500H head alone is only 6.4 lbs.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Ibanez products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Lil' Box O' Trix"
Sound: WHOA!! This little 10" driver is not only LOUD, but sounds good too?! WTF?! ;-) This is exactly the kind of combo amp that a real-world, working bassists needs in their arsenal. Small, portable, powerful, extendable with another cabinet, reproduces tones with only the coloration the bassist adds through the preamp section. Ibanez has outdone Markbass, Eden, and SWR/Fender with this little guy! I was playing this little dude at nearly full volume without it feeling boxy, bottoming out, or giving that nasty "woof" overdrive. Keep in mind, you bass players, you, that the amount of EQ and color that you add or take away from the signal directly effects the signal strength, peaks, and valleys. Start by making small adjustments. (psst, that was a TIP!!) Feature: Detachable head is a bit querky for me, but I see how that could be very useful for some musicians. I feel that buying a combo amp constitutes USING IT AS a combo amp. Anyway, simple EQ section is great; shelving controls for bass and treble, then 6 band graphic to get in the middle. The Vibe control totally kicks butt! Its kind of like rolling back the tone control on an old '60s Fender Jazz, where you have all the definition, but none of the buzziness or sharpness from the treble... Very cool feature! I wish this little guy had a built in compressor/limiter. It also would have been nice to have a level control for the XLR out that would run to the studio console or front of house. For lack of these features, I rated the Features as 7. Ease of Use: Totally easy to use! Plug in, power on, adjust a couple little things, turn it UP. Quality: Since I don't own it yet, I really can't attest fairly to the quality. Value: This is where I believe this combo shines. There are a gob of features packed into this lil' box o' trix, and a quality driver and horn. The box seems to be well built. If another "prestigious" bass amp company had thought of this idea, and executed it as well as Ibanez has, this guy would be double the cost if not more. Looking at the grand scheme of things, I do not believe this combo amp is overpriced. Manufacturer Support: Good experience with Ibanez support in the past. The Wow Factor: Oh yeah, I want this combo amp. Overall: Overall, this little combo amp kicks @$$. I look forward to the day that I own this amp, walk into a club, and the sound guy asks, "Is that all you brought?" Hehehe... "Um, yeah. This is it." :-) Great little combo amp. All it lacks is a compressor/limiter and a level control for the XLR output.

"I have several 100w combo amps, too bulky and underpowered! My little Promethean is half the size and twice the power. If you"
Sound: Through the 10" cabinet it's a little muffled... what you would expect with a 250W amp going through a tiny 10" cabinet. As a practice amp it's more than capable of getting you through a rehearsal with a live drummer. When you put the amp through a decent 4x10 cab or even a 2x10 it's MUCH clearer and louder. Since the head detaches with 4 screws you can mix and match your gear. Feature: I think mine should have come with a protective cover but didn't. No biggie, it's tiny but durable. There's an optional foot switch but I don't need it. It has a clean out so you can go to the board or record, there's a port for tuner out, headphones jack and MP3 player input. There's even a little bracket stand connected to the front you can extend so it leans back, I didn't even know about that til I saw it in a picture online... :) Ease of Use: The EQ, tone and "vibe" controls let you shape the sounds pretty well, but you'll notice the control more when you pump the amp through a 4x10 cab. You can't get as much variance in tone from the little 10" cab, not that you would expect to... Quality: They kept the cab small and light so I would not expect it to hold my car up but it seems very solid. I'm careful with my gear so I expect it to last. Value: This amp is pricey, but it's a combination of so many things, I think it's worth it. 1) tiny, ultra-portable practice amp that can still keep up with a live drummer 2) detachable 250W head that sounds great through a larger cab, 3) Bright and warm tones with a singe dial, plenty of EQ options, 4) MUTE switch, why don't you see that more often! Manufacturer Support: Have not needed support, sorry can't say The Wow Factor: Very high, it looks like a toy 35w amp until you crank it up and really get noticed. Soo easy to carry around and versatile sound, I just love this thing. Overall: I would replace it in a heart beat. I love everything about this amp
