MGR/Mike L's review"Ibanez 25R Tone Blaster"

Ibanez Tone Blaster 25R
I got this amp for $150 at a local hole-in-the-wall music store. The one I had before purchasing this one was only like 5 watts, so I needed an upgrade.

I like the over drive (distortion) and reverb that came with it. The distortion is kind of the grunge type which was pretty good for me because I play a lot of Nirvana and stuff. The palm muting isn't spectacular though with it on. The reverb makes each sound reflect and echo superbly. You can best notice the reverb when you are playing clean.

My Danelectro Distortion Pedal gives the amp a heavier sound, with the palm muting being very bassy and hard. It's better to play metal stuff with a metal distortion pedal with this amp because the on-board overdrive isn't spectacular for really heavy stuff. But, if you can't afford a distortion pedal then you can probably work with it, and it should work fine for you.

When volume is turned up a little over half way with overdrive, the whole case buzzes from the vibrations. It gets kind of annoying, and would seem emberassing if it were to do that at a live gig. I may just need to tighten it up somwhere, I don't know.

It hasn't fallen apart on me yet. The whole unit is fairly heavy, (maybe 20 lbs probably lighter) but it's not that bad.

All in all, it's a pretty solid unit for practicing with. Maybe even loud enough to go over drums and stuff if practicing with a band, although I haven't had a chance to try it out like that yet.

A "small 25W" transistors that comes overdrive, clean sound with reverb and equalizer.
Above in addition to the guitar between between there is a headset, good for those who play later in the evening or when the neighbors screaming;) and accounts for a footswitch (to switch to overdrive clean and vice versa without touching the switch facade). The enclosure uses is a Power Jam PJ30G


The rglages are Harchi-simple, requires few pots
I do not use any effects or overdrive, I took after having aquri a multi-effects pedal that handles give therefore only the best quality distortion equalizer serves me for more prcis rglage on the pedal

Then comes the only part that interests me in this little amp I have named the output power and quality of listening, and I'm just fallen on my ass to the point of wondering why people they achtent of 60W amps, it gives her a halucinante power, dare I hardly get to del with 1/4 of the volume, above my windows explode;) ... c ' it is the little critter eh potato, group or between ca friends will do nicely, add me as a good pedal and you have a system like in your dreams (can -TRE even better: D)


So well I my thing is metal, so big sound and precision are put in résumé this amp is for me the firm is really great and amplification steps.

Malgrs AC it is very versatile, it lends itself to mtaleux I'm the one who has the blues, pop-rock, rock, ....

I currently know it with a BOSS ME-30 gives me a breath of malgrs the pedal a very good distortion, worse than the pedals spares Vidament but still more than adequate especially ct the final price ....

That said I take a point as the original distortion is not as terrible as my pedal but it should amply the great beginner to novice


I personally played 4 hours per day on average (watch in hand, yes I know I'm a psychopath ^^) .... I, who loves to ride a little volume ca normment I like but I almost reproach him his power extent, this is to be taken lightly to turn the volume knob as a bad move and * boom * hapu eardrums hapu windows' (but hapu neighbor and long ^^

I bought it there c 2 days time, his former owner explained to me that sparait because he did not need as much racket even in group

If I would do this choice? Without hesitations, yes !!

Instrument input.

Reverb, distortion, 3 band eq .. has already been said or view special.


Manuel .. ah ...

Config simple.

Yes we get a good sound easy.

For home use, perfect attention to the volume anyway.

For rehearsal with battery co. not too bad if the room is quite airy, very well to start it anyway. He even small concerts where it was transplanted to PA.


Yes it was appropriate to the style of music (punk, rock, metal, pop, grunge and electro, experimental)

I used it primarily to sound with distortion and reverb, effects pedals more entry-level (3g korg, korg ax1g.)

I played with a guitar ibanez GSA60.

I loved the distortion more than the pedals mentioned above. More character, fishing, cutting edge, it's all subjective, but I have fond memories of this amp.

I did not like the clean sound without EQ or reverb, a little "box" but hey, widely acceptable for use with micro or central gsa60 the neck pickup.

For double distortion bridge pickup was perfect for grunge.

I hacked a lot of sounds from this amp .. as tune guitar and dub in a shure sm58 who sent it on low-end mix table samson amp sent to R600 with PA speakers low end even gave a wharfedale behind his demented, very heavy and greasy ... cool

I liked pushing the volume, reverb, gain, etc.. make feedback, not ideal for I think, but not bad, coming from the amp ...

I make him see all the colors, I've also spent a synth Bontempi child inside and that made the hardtek .. if so!

I put the microphones singing too ... not good ... to shout in with the reverb and the amp thoroughly interesting enough anyway when you start and you have never sung anything else and now I'm curious to do it again ...

Not recommended to me (for survival) Guitar If granted, or that sort of thing (drop D no problem) but if I think that the abyss if you push a little.

I loved the shake to get reverberated sounds very strange .. (Which inevitably ended up killing the reverb)


I do not use more. I used it at least 6 years without any problems. I then left to move.

I have abused me making it into account its "value" (bouncing around fallen, shaken, I went up top, played bass, guitar détunée 2 or 3 tones with volume, low distortion and bottom) .. . he ended up with various concerns, reverb which "jumps" or that no longer works, hardly adjustable knobs (volume goes from 1 to 8, particularly in lead mode ..), a parasite at a particular frequency in clean (I do not remember which) when I played some notes clean it produced a distortion of background ... very unpleasant) ...

Special I loved most:
sound, character, distortion and power for the range in which it is located.
storage possible behind the amp

I liked the least:
A single output (headphones)

I tried other amps of the same range (I forget which) at the time (now I can not say) and I liked this one for what has been said (to his distorted electro grunge hard metal industry, which trails well)
(But not for clean)

Yep, I do not regret this purchase.

M@souleo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez Tone Blaster 25R
Cest cequ'il There's just one amp is simple nothing is superfluous top
Incredible 25 watts
I put 10 for that price, I dfi quicquonque to beat.


Config simple, two volume knobs parallle, one for distortion and the clean channel, operable by a button on the front panel or a switch (not supplied) that connects also the face of the b te.

was a sound 15.26 sec watch in hand, it's not the mesa, but for the price it is silent.

only "shadow", the distortion is a powerful and plutt the apartment is quite rglage Minucia because between too much and not enough there's no half a millimeter. but hey, patience is a virtue, a virtue that I do not have o 9 / 10 but it's good for purists.


Well then this ki o want to rock the country and jazz, forget the tt on ...

by against the hard metal and it is a standard con seems what I say because it's a 25w p'tit and when I bought it I say the same thing but the thing is it sends the sauce, I use a ibanez boss ds1 distortion and two and mxr m-104 and a Boss ME10 plutt I use to amplify sound for quee its effects.
despite the fact that ca be a 25w as I said, I have pushed Jamai when we played in groups more than 4 out of 10.

May I clear RPET sound much more than acceptable qu'tant is colder than a marshall or a fender, but the distortion is well worth the latter.

it gives me the best investment that beginners can do for beginners, if he can not save more money.


I use this amp for 1 year and a half apart in groups and as it does both perfectly.

the ratio is unbeatable qualitprix 160euros!!
hallucinnent all my friends whenever I told them.
this amp is perfect for beginners and I see the RPET (yes I know has 30fois), despite its "25w" It is incredible power and can play in groups.
if I had the choice again I refer.

J'espre this article will help you make your choice.
