Laney A1
First, it's amp is an amp and not an electro combo electric, I am surprised to find in this category.
It's a transistor amp, 60W with 3 separate channels including 2 pincipal (typically a channel guitar, microphone and line input for a CD for example) The first channel has an input jack, a compression Adjustable and switchable to an equalizer (with frequency of mediums), notch, phase ... the second channel (XLR / jack) volume and equalizer and a third volume. The first 2 channels can get an effect with level control (chorus, reverb etc ...) but the effect will be the same on the two channels (switchable individually having said that)


The grip is super simple, the DVD demo is interesting but the manual almost useless. The effects are nice, and sounds very good and flexible as desired. the celestion hp (severe acute) have a good record and good resistance to volume, more than enough power for studio or a small room. The amp is pretty compact and can be tilted in the manner of a return.


A little breath on the line input, the rest is impeccable, well-balanced.


A great little amp complete ...
Only regret: the effects are not separated for two channels, but at € 320 (in Germany) is an excellent product.

Between a super simple setup for my acoustic guitar is a Cort MR 710 F that sounds great, from a micro to a SM 58 and an auxiliary input on which one can connect a laptop for example and is good for this last is that the volume is indepandant.Les integrates its very convincing indeed very beautiful it acts on the 2 first entry not on the (what was his servant). the only negative point in my opinion is that the effect is the same for 2 channels, for example I love a little reverb to my voice and a chorus for the guitar but it's not a good amp 1500.
Otherwise the sound is great it is rel a pleasure to play and sing with this "little" amp.
I did not put up just to note the small negative point I citt above.


I'm not a virtuoso of the guitar I play mainly accopagnemant (rhythmic arpeggios) to accompany my pretty little voice lol, it Souvant The variety of French, Italian and Neapolitan. The sound comes out clear and chand has foix when I first connect the faith I have been surprised that so enjoyable little trick out a nice sound and even at high volume when the volume just a little sal or café no need to carry around a huge sonno it suffoit ample genial what.


I play with for 2 months and it was a pleasure rel chaqque faith I can not get enough.
It is small enough can easily portable and the sound is great.
I pay 400 there are ways to find a 350 in germany but I prefer to buy near moi.J 've esseyer else on the paper were giant such as the behringer acx 1800, which on paper is three faith more powerful and the effects are separate for each cannal but his can not has chevi of A1;
400 to conclude a great amp you can buy it eyes closed

Laney A1
Transistor amp sound

Announced power: 65 watts (I tested it without sound in a space of about 100 m2 closed my voice and guitar face another amplified guitar and a baritone sax: no power problem)

Effects: Many. strong point: one can affect the effects on channel 1 or channel 2 or both through a switch.

Another advantage: you can mute each input through a switch (convenient to tune on stage without risking getting feedback)


Inputs: a jack for acoustic guitar, another jack but high impedance for electric guitar or bass shared with XLR microphone voice for example (you can connect the 2 together, one does not negate the another, but aq is the same for both inputs) and finally an RCA input for any stereo device (example: ipod, cd player etc.)

Outputs: one output tuner (practice) that can also serve double outlet to plug into a sampler, recorder), an outlet to plug into a PA (mono XLR) and finally a headphone output (useful to play on mute or settle silently on stage)

The HP is 10 inches (Celestion) with a tweeter for the treble: the advantage of the HP 10 is that it gives scope to the serious (compared to 8 or 6 inches from other acoustic amps I tested (EAR, Marshall)

Another strong point is not too big and can get in "tiltback" as a stage monitor: the sound is spread much better than flat.

Covered with carpet type materials such as bass amp.

Warning: The above is the amp is aerated lets see the circuit inside a grid: cover on rainy days or buy a cache of amp (an English manufacturer of custom made models for all brands of vinyl amp, searching the net or on ebay)


Setup is very simple: with its perfect acoustics all settings neutral. We can then develop with the many settings offered. Its beautiful and full of hand. Light color very flattering (typed his "studio" as a disk)

The manual is very brief and largely sufficient

However, two criticisms:

The first concerns the microphone channel that I use for voice on stage: there is no phantom power, so that competitors have all but most importantly, we can not have a voice used by cutting almost totally serious acute and pushing. I have already spoken on the forum, but I even failed to return the amp when I received this as his seemed to have a defect (drowned her in a halo of low / mid karaoke set incorrectly and never used to use a serious stage. I ended up cutting the bass and treble at max and I finally got through, but it leaves no room for adjustment for voice. Too bad.

Another small flaw: it blows a little compared to the EAR to my partner guitarist but nothing rhédibitoire


(I have answered all these questions above)

With experience, I do it again this election, or possibly the Marshall AS100 given the multi-use instruments that I am (EAR perfect acoustics and voice but you can not plug a bass or a keyboard and has no RCA inputs)
