Talking New Amp Day Pics included

Hey everyone,

Well recently i picked myself up an Ibanez Tone blaster TB100R Amp. The local music shop had a sale on, and it was reduced by $400, so i decided i'd take it since i've been looking into a new amp for quite some time.

Just the specs of it:
Solid state
100 watts
2 channels (Clean, Drive)
2 x 12 inch speakers
Effects loop
Boost (adds extra output)
Reverb
Mid shift on the drive channel
4 button footswitch (for controlling: Boost, Channel select, Mid Shift, and Reverb)

Its freaking loud (as you would expect)
The reverb is very subtle, on 10 you can bearly hear it
The drive channel is awesome suits my playing perfectly
Clean channel is excellent (my old amp didn't have a clean channel so this is a big step up)

If you didn't know, The mid shift raises the mid range, so you can be playing some chords then kick the mid shift in and pull out screaming solos, not a bad little feature.

The good thing i like about it is that without the boost you can actually put it up to 2 without blowing your ears, so you can actually play late at night and have the amp to 1 and its a perfect setting. I've seen some 100 watts where you can't put it past 1, so i like it how this one kicks in round the 1.5 - 2 volume mark.

Sound Samples to come later....
Now the Pics (sorry for the large picture size and crappy quality in some) :

Re: New Amp Day Pics included

Hey guys yeah i would love to put some sound clips up for you's to listen to, but i don't have any recording software, the best i can do is record to my MP3 player and then upload them, ill do some tests tonight and see what i come up with

Also i'm not the best player, so the best i can come up with is some powerchords and some "Main stream" riffs and "Solos"

Hey i just tried last night with some samples, it really sounds s*** on my MP3 player , the microphone on the MP3 just dosen't pick up the amp well, too bassy and it doesn't highlight the true character of the amp so, i can run the recording through Wavepad and edit it to try and get the sound of the amp or very close to it anyway so stay tuned and i'll try my best.
