    I just received my Ibanez TS 15 Head, after trying it out for a while. I put the amp on standby, waited a few seconds then turned the amp off, and it did this loud pop when I turned off the power switch. It can be returned real quick as a defective product, so any replies from TS15 head owners would be appreciated..

    Yep that works, but man is this amp bright way too bright for my taste. I may have to put a graphic EQ in the efx loop and cut everything down above 800K to zero. I have the bass on 12:00 position and the trebles on about 8:00 position, and it is still far too bright for my taste. Maybe a tube change is in order, and when I put a tube distortion stomp in front of it, it gets even brighter and grainier. Not my favorite tone at all. I can get the thing to sound OK mind you by adjusting the tone controls on the tube stomp a bunch and using the tone pot on my guitar. It may just have to go back also. It don't seem right to me......

    By the way, I just turn off the standby switch and wait about 15 seconds and that works OK, I also hit the standby switch and play a chord and it discharges any stored power in about 3 seconds. No pop at all.

    Mine isn't excessively bright. I would suspect the speaker(s).
    And BTW, there is no true efx loop as is common with most amps. If you look at the block diagram of the amp, you'll see that it allows insertion of effects after the on-board tube screamer but NOT between the preamp and power amp. Insertion of effects between the guitar and input puts them before the on-board tube screamer.

    Even allowing for different tastes, the amp is not overly bright. See if you can try it through another speaker....what speaker are you using?

    As long as you did not buy it from a forum member and the store has a return policy, what the heck.
