Straight ahead vintage tone in a small package with simple controls.
The CUB12R houses a 12” driver, giving it an increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the preamp it’s clear that the CUB12R packs more into the amp than it’s smaller siblings. It features Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume, Tone and Reverb controls. The output section of the CUB12R is based around a pair of EL84 tubes giving it a more scooped tone than it’s smaller counterparts. Think smooth rich overdrive with bags of gain.
The CUB12R features two input sockets one-labeled 15W the other labeled less than one watt. Plug into the “less than one watt” and you get your great tube tone at a whisper. The less-than-one-watt option allows you to drive the power amp section really hard allowing you to really access the “dark art” tone of power amp distortion.
The CUB12R is a member of the CUB range which offers everyone the opportunity to experience the sound and feel of a good quality tube amp at what is an amazing price.

Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
There are many great things to say about this amp. Notes bloom nicely providing all the nuances of your playing to pop out from your fingers. It responds well to both humbuckers and single coil pickups. It is lightweight and portable. The speaker seems to hold up well with the amp cranked.At least short term. However the lack of a Pentode Triode Switch as found on other makers amps makes this amp a bit of a bummer. However, weight and size compensate nicely in the decision making process. I honestly feel if it were priced at 25% less I would have given it 5 stars.
