Great little head for the price ! This little gem (15w/5w 2x 6V6 / 2x 12AX7) replaced my Blues Deluxe Reissue (too loud and too heavy). I like how it sounds : The clean is really awesome, with lots of bass in it. It sounds thinner in triode mode, but really fat in pentode mode. I like the TS more in the triode mode with humbuckers. Give it a Strat' or a Tele and you'll be amazed !
I bought this amp in Sept. 2012. It's in white tolex. A 15 watts amp with a built in tube screamer circuit to push the amp into overdrive. It comes with 2 12AX7 preamp tubes and 2 6L6 power amp tubes. pretty loud amp for a 15 watt.
The TSA15H is as pretty as it sounds. It delivers really warm valve tone and is versatile enough to connect to a variety of cab arrangements, pumping out either 5 or 15 watts. Pair it with the Ibanez TSA112C and rock out!
This amp was a real dark horse. I went looking for a small head to downgrade from my 30W, found a couple of options and got this. The TubeScreamer circuit is before the built-in effects loop which I think is a poor design, but it is one less thing to carry if you are into the TS sound.
I don't care for the TS sound personally, and rely heavily on stompboxes to achieve most of my tones.
The amp's BOOST on the other hand, is a completely different story. By itself this amp has incredible clean tones (I'm using it with an Orange PPC112 closed back cab) and they only get better when you kick on the boost.
Overall a great choice for low volume stuff, but it'll compete with a band as well....probably not a metal band, but for a "music band" it'll be fine :)
I like the tsa15, recently got the head and the box. The idea of an 'onboard' tubescreamer was what got me into buying this one. What really surprised me was the very warm clean sound. it was definitely worth a buy.
This amp is an all valve amp with EL34s at power amp section which is my personal favourite. With the tube screamer circuit, you can achieve sweet bluesy overdrive tone easily, combine it with a post-boost function, soloing is not a problem as well. I run directly to it from a Les Paul and add a reverb pedal to make the tone wet, perfect from pop, blues, jazz to rock.
