Your Ibanez TSA15H Tube Screamer amp head produces a bright and clear tone that cuts through air like a knife. Built with a genuine Tube Screamer circuit inside the head, this small but ear-shattering beast warms your sound and gives a noticeable crunch that breaks up nicely when pushed. Controls include a footswitchable 6 dB boost; Tube Screamer setting; universal bass, treble, and volume knobs; and tone, level, and overdrive knobs for your Tube Screamer circuit. See how much punch you can get from a 22-pound 15-watt head by firing up your TSA15H with the TSA112C speaker cab. Let the screaming begin!

See the Ibanez TSA15H Tube Screamer in action:


Built-in Tube Screamer Circuit -- No Pedal Required

You'll no longer need a separate pedal to get that Tube Screamer tone heard from the TS9 pedal. Your TSA15H's built-in Tube Screamer circuit packs punch, utilizing this head's combination of two 6V6 power amp and two 12AX7 preamp tubes to generate a warm and present tube tone. The Tube Screamer setting sports overdrive, tone, and level controls and can be switched on via footswitch or a switch on the amp's front panel.

A Small Head That Packs a Lot of Punch

Weighing in at only 22 pounds, this little monster can really dish out the decibels with only 15 watts of power. The Tube Screamer circuit will give you further projection and a wider tonal spectrum -- providing more versatility while taking up less room. If you want even more punch, you have a footswitchable 6 dB boost to push your sound even louder. The power from this small but threatening head will even work well for you in medium- to larger-sized venues.

Perfect Match for the TSA112C Speaker Cab

Try out your TSA15H with the TSA112C speaker cab. Your head's outputs include five speaker outputs with a 5-watt and 15-watt switch, and you have an effects loop to work in your pedals and other effects. Versatile sound, a lot of punch, and all-tube tone are at your fingertips when you plug in and push your TSA15H to "eleven" -- you'll get that bright and crisp lead tone that just can't be missed.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great sound; output transformer too close to power transformer"
Sound: I bought this amp head in conjunction with the TSA112C cabinet. At first I did not like the sound so much. Perhaps the speakers needed breaking in. At this point I have used it for 2.5 months and I love the sound. It is an open back cabinet. There is a soft, low level but constant hum produced by the power amplifier section. I checked the pre-amp output via the send jack, and there is no hum there. The hum seems to be produced by the proximity of the output transformer to the power transformer: they are nearly touching each other. This is a poor design, but the hum does not increase when you increase the volume, so you cannot notice it except at very low volumes. Feature: Most useful features are: tube preamp and power amp, send and return jacks, integrated tube screamer circuit (using the "correct" op-amp, according to purists), optional boost applied to send output, 5W/15W output switch . With the optional footswitch, you can turn the tube screamer and boost on and off with your foot. This amp is very loud at 15 watts. I cannot play it at loud volume, and I never noticed any power amplifier distortion. It is a very clean, round sound, working well with distortion boxes or the built in tube screamer. Ease of Use: All analog, so it is as easy as it gets. Put the amp into standby before switching the power from 15 to 5 watts, or you will get a pop. Quality: I had to make two changes. The volume control was scratchy, so I opened it up and sprayed some deoxit into it. That fixed it completely. The other change was a blown fuse. Fuse F6, for the preamp section, was 500mA and blew one day when I turned it on. I reached customer support, and they told me to put a 1 amp fuse there instead. There was a bit of sawdust inside the cabinet, which may have gone into the pots. I tried to clean it all out. Internally, the construction is good, except the closeness of the output transformer to the power transformer. The jacks are plastic and mounted on pcb boards, as expected at this price. The resistors are metal film, the capacitors carrying audio information are all film, from what I can see. To change the fuses or tubes you must remove 8 screws. Dis-assembly is easy. Manufacturer Support: I found the support phone number on a web forum. The support number was not listed on the Ibanez web site, which was annoying. The support people are very helpful and quick to answer. The Wow Factor: I would prefer a different color. But the sound is wonderful. It is as good as they say in the reviews. Overall: I bought this amp head in conjunction with the TSA112C cabinet. I have used it for 2.5 months and I love the sound.
Style of Music: Blues, alternative, rock, various.
