With the original Tube Screamer components built directly into the front end, the new TSA30H offers a beefier version of the 15 watt TSA15H. Independent level adjustments for both clean and overdriven channels allow for extreme fine tuning, while a selector switch from 15 or 30 watt settings help the amp handle any room. The TSA30H’s two 6L6 output tubes and two 12AX7 preamp tubes produce warm, crisp tones when played clean, and the venerable Tube Screamer crunch when the on-board Overdrive and 6 db Boost switches are engaged. The optional foot switch makes navigating channels even easier.
“The TSA30H is an opportunity for players to pair it with their favorite cab,” says Facciolo. For those who need a cabinet, Ibanez offers a match—the 8ohm TSA212C cabinet boasts a 12” Celestion Seventy80 speaker set with an open back to maximize tone and clarity, but the TSA30H’s five separate speaker outs for ohm matching to nearly any cabinet.
Facciolo’s final comments perfectly summarize Ibanez’s marketing thrust behind the TSA30H, “Tube amps and the Tube Screamer circuit are considered must-haves by so many players, and this unit offers both with amp head flexibility, and beefier output.”
