Beste 1x8" combo money can buy!

PeeVee, 01.12.2017
I play upright bass and used Ibanez's big brother P3110 Promethean for rehearsals and small semi-accoustic gigs but I did not like the sound of the internal speaker at all, very boxy. The P3110 is a serious gigging amp when connected to an external cabinet but when I need big power, I rather use my Ampeg PF-500 or Trace Elliot ELF head instead. So... I sold the P3110 but still had a need for a small compact and portable amp for rehearsals and semi-accoustic gigs. I tried the Hartke HD25 but found the EQ to be inadequate. The P20 however has a very efficient EQ that handles every input signal I throught at it, from upright bass to my '51 Pbass. The sound really fills the room and the clean (!) volume is impressive for a ¤109 amp with 8" speaker. Even though the HD25 is my only reference in small amps, I tend to say the P20 is much better, probably the best amp ¤109 can buy! Highly recommended.

a little new nice

17.09.2015
For years I have been struggling to find a small amp that is very transportable, but correct in sound, and that allows to beat the beef between civilized musicians (jazz, fusion, reggae, ...). I tried, bought, sold, defenestrated one (if, if ... but we will not mention a brand!), I even tweaked one, so that it corresponds better.
And then, suddenly as I began to despair, Ibanez leaves us, late summer, the little brother of the 3110 (which oriented my choice in part).
Small, compact, easy to use, surprising in capacities and not to spoil the flattering aspect.
The 20 Watts are there, the sound is quite neutral with an I do not know what immediately identifies the manufacturer (nervousness of sound, taste for the slightly metallic sound, slightly compressed sound ...).
Potters at noon on all sides it goes well, and it slap rather well in slap. We refining a little the settings and we easily find the sound that suits us, 4 bands is ideal on a small thing like that!
The HP very correct the master to the 3/4 without flinching, after .....
He restores elegantly what is balanced and surprises me at the level of the bass for his size.
The connection is laconic, but this is not the purpose, although a small line out and a removable power cord would not have been refusal
(if Mr. Ibanez has the ears that train!)
Special mention once again for weight and size.
Although the tollex is not the top-of-the-range brand, only the paint on the front panel can be perfected.
To conclude, you get what you pay for and even a little more (thanks Thomann), convenient shopping and no great risk for a beginner, or a nomadic amateur a bit fussy about the quality. The Ibanez sound on a small format, finally, and I wish the quality inherent in the brand in the duration ....... wait & see
