About Integrated Bass System amps...

The Integrated Bass System line of amps contains the...

3510 (100W) bass head
3520 (200W) bass head
3530 (300W) bass head
3540 (400W) bass head
3560 (600W) bass head

Now aside from the obvious power differences, I've seen photos of all these models of IBS amps and I've noticed that some have more features then others.

I've heard the 3530 and I love it, I want to get one but they're hard to find. I've seen the other models floating around so if they produce the same sound Im definitely going to get one.

So my question is do all the other models sound like the 3530? Or is every single one unique?

And if they are all the same, at what level does each amp break up? I want to get a mid ranged overdriven distortion sound, and to do that I need to get the amp loud enough that its no longer clean and breaks up. I want the amp to break up in a normal band situation, so 120db break up point is not ideal.

Any help at all is very appreciated. Thanks.

I am only aware of the mighty VBA and the MB series.

Re: About Integrated Bass System amps...

yeah, we're talking about Marshalls.

The Integrated Bass System series was part of the solid state amp line, they came out soon after the JCM800 series.They where like an evolved version of the solid state JCM800's.

There are 800 series tube amps and 800 series solid states. Tube came first though, pretty sure the solid states where less popular.

Re: About Integrated Bass System amps...

I had one of these years ago. I believe it was 400 watts, It was solid state. Had just an EQ and volume knob if I remember. I ran it through a pair of Carvin cabs,. It was loud and sounded great.

There are no JCM800 solid state amps.
I have a JCM800 Bass Series.
It's a great amp for both bass and guitar.

I didn't think JCM800's were ever solid state...

Re: About Integrated Bass System amps...

Hi, I really need some info. I am repairing an IBS 5510 for a customer. It's got a blown transformer (Drake 7-200/6). Since it's an 80s model, I need to find a suitable replacement.
Could anyone tell me the secondary voltage of the tranny and also the power rating required (VA)?

Appreciate any feedback and many thanks.

Well, since this thread is bumped, might as well join in...

From what I believe, the Mosfet 100 was part of the SS JCM800 line.

Re: About Integrated Bass System amps...

I've got a 3505 (microstack bass version-30 watts) and i can't get shit for breakup. it's cool for slaving a Lead 12 micro into so i've got more power, and ok for me practicing bass, alone, but great tone with gritty breakup? fogittabottit. if the ibs stuff is anything like this (looks about the same, has a 35xx model #, so...) then i'd say if you want dirt for your bass, get an ampeg svt.
