Over the course of the past thirty years, Ibanez have earned a reputation for building some of the finest jazz guitars on the planet. The superb George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Schofield models are great examples so, it makes sense that Ibanez have built a guitar amplifier of the same calibre.
Ibanez have learned a lot from the input of leading Jazz Guitarists.
The fact is that the Ibanez wholetone WT80 really does deliver boutique Jazz Amplifier tone and features at a price that only a company the size of Ibanez can deliver.
The Ibanez wholetone WT80 is a purpose-built amplifier for hollowbody jazz guitars and has been designed to deliver clean jazz tones to suit most performance levels. The WT80 does a fine job with solid-body guitars too.
Some Jazz Guitarists find it difficult to get that old style big bassy jazz guitar sound…clean, yet with a slight “nasal” or “honky” presence. Usually the secret ingredients that you hear on many classic recordings are the old unpotted humbucker pickups, very heavy flatwound strings and a boutique solid state amp. These amps are very expensive and not readily available.
The Ibanez wholetone WT80 with its custom designed 15″ speaker pumping out 80 watts RMS of power is voiced for hollowbody guitars and reproduces the lower range acoustic tone that hollow body guitars are known for.
The WT80 is all about TONE and HEADROOM.
As well as a powerful amplifier/speaker combination, the WT80 features a DSP-based precision limiter to ensure that your sound will stay clean – even at a high volumes. The tone is coloured to produce a sweet jazz tone and with the amount of Dynamic Headroom, each note sounds pronounced and quite punchy.
As well as the DSP Limiter, Ibanez have designed the power supply with large capacitor energy storage – storage which is used when playing dynamically and allows the power supply to deliver large, clean transit power bursts to the power amplifier. The Result? …Notes Stay Immaculately Clean.
Other welcome features include Chorus, Reverb, and 3-band EQ with separate Tone control all offering a variety of tonal options at your fingertips.
