The fabled roar of a British Class A tube power amp in a premium-crafted amp.
It may look like a baby, but it sounds like a real mother.
The music scene is no stranger to British imports, whether they come in the form of chart-topping artists or amazing-sounding equipment. It's fitting that Laney amplifiers made their debut in the 1960s, the same decade as the British invasion. With amps of this caliber coming across the Atlantic, we just might owe the Brits a sincere "thank you" for more than just the Fab Four.Laney amps have an impressive resume, especially when it comes to Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath. With his own signature models in the Laney lineup and at his side onstage, Tony is one of Laney's biggest fans. A few other artists who have rocked these amps include Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel of Killswitch Engage, Ace Frehley, and Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits. A list of satisfied guitarists like that needs no further explanation to get across the message that Laney makes some seriously great amps.
One of the reasons for Laney's stellar sound and the reputation it's earned them is their classic tube-based amp design. Every combo amp and head on offer from Laney is stuffed with those warm, glowing masters of tone, from the Tommy Iommi Signature 15W 1x12 Combo Amp all the way to the IRT120H Guitar Amp Head, which pushes 120W of sonic bliss to your favorite cabinet. In fact, not only does Laney give you the best aspect of vintage amps with their all-tube layouts, they're also on board with modern tech. Check out the Ironheart IRT-STUDIO head, for example, which has a built-in USB interface so you can connect it directly to your software audio workstation. With the right balance of classic tube sound and digital age connectivity, this amp head makes jaw-dropping recordings a breeze.
If you want a matching cabinet to live beneath your Laney head, we've got you covered. The Cub Cab is a natural partner for the Cub head, with the same vintage styling as well as two 12" drivers. If you plan to take Tony Iommi's signature TI100 head for a spin, pair it up with the TI412S cabinet that's designed specifically to go with it. Or, for a versatile option that handles up to 160W of shredding power, check out the GS212IE, which comes packed with a pair of 12" Celestion Seventy 80s.
Whether you take home some of Tony Iommi's signature amps or branch out into the rest of Laney's lineup, you can be confident that you're getting hardware with a reputation as solid as the many artists who've used them. As if Tommy himself wasn't reason enough to love what British talent can do for the music community, Laney Amplifiers is one more name to add to the list.
