Laney HCM65B
260 bought new at Total Music Paris

65 W RMS - HP HH 12 "- 2 inputs (passive / active) - Compression - 3-band EQ with sweep mdiums - Between CD - Line out - external socket HP-loop effect (to connect in / out effects and the amp not connect directly to the bass effects and amp effects) Headphone

Short as the useful even if there is no connectivity pltor qualizer and no graphics. Nor XLR ... but for that price is good and trs dj for an XLR power level could even seem to be too much, totally useless.

The rest is solid. The amp is "close" I mean by things not seen by the cabinet as derrire guitar combo amp on the Marshall, for example, the pots are good (for me at the pots is the buttons as you turn in a case where it is not clear). Mtal to the grid and a beautiful effect, the surface of the amp is as comfortable eye (bah yes there are amps that are ugly and that makes you not want ...) and it seems to me the body is made of wood (I have seen dj resembling rotten plastic). In short, a quality almost surprising for an amp made in China and this price range.


Use of this amp is really simple trs!

No graphic equalizer: one more for the beginners for whom notament Settings This will make it easier and more readable fawn (even if it is not clear trs knob first point of view re view), a least for the pros yet they will probably look more powerful, knowing that the model above 160Watts qualiser includes a graphic ... yet I know of professional bass players who have a holy horror of qualizer graphics.

Find its "sound" is relatively easy for the 65w Laney may be adjusted easily and allows the bass to sound as we see fit. The compressor is trs effective even if sometimes dreams of a limiter integr (the good one speaks of a luxury ... any Manir using a limiter really?)

Regarding the manual ... it is simple I have not had (my amp was the model of prsentation, I imagine they have the manual of any gar Manir there is no point TElement this amp is simple to use). But at worst it is available on the website of laney ( ).

So easy to use, but for real settings ... because some amps this price range are sometimes as simple ... but does not allow a truly reglagle personalis.

I use the Laney Custom home in my room to train. Daily use of this amp is really simple and nice.

So why not 10/10 ... may be somewhat limited perspective power ... but hey it's a 65w (and yes ... do not expect the Stade de France with ... LOL) and he is already well shake my ground (and a little more j'deviens deaf ...: s)


Good in terms of sound: no miracle. If your bass sounds like a plank of wood on which it would fix a bridge and a microphone with 4 strings on Laney will not "save your sound."

But the fact remains that it is largely see it beats, power amplifiers scabies but fare much as Peavey and Company lev ...

The sound is trs good, not too much noise (if your still following low but hey I'm talking about the amp no bass so we will tell you that my bass is very well: D, P ie Washburn XB400 here a versatile trs). The sound is fairly neutral, and relatively round as I do, with quite a wide range DEFINITIONS frequency drives that covers the amp. Nanmoins with settings on low you can go from a round the trs, trs funk and ska, sounds more crisp and kind mtalique keupon picks or strings to pull to rev low slap ... in any case he will resort perfectly the sound of your bass.

The range of the trs is vast, Laney by promoting neutral and roundness for incredible versatility.

I must admit that nanmoins to get the full potential (huge) of this little amp I can be a graphic equalizer AIM (but hey BOSS pedal actually ...) to really take advantage of all the noise s possible, and that would aid the game o Taping is sometimes complicated to have the right sound (right now I do not think that many bass players or followers of this technique).

In short the sound is always good in all registers (including mdiator and slap). My only regret might be the lack of serious DEFINITIONS in the taping ... But I'm also probably the first responsible.

So 10/10 sound point of view. He MRIT trs well!


After 1 year I am still happy! If I had to buy an amp tomorrow (if there was a fire at night and my amp was hero perish in my room fighting until the last breath) I buy what Laney (if I survive the fire I hear ...).

Seriously I have no major complaint to make. The sound is good trs, the faade includes settings and connectivity all fine.
I think other models in the range are as good. I am a small outdoor concert once with a 35Watt amp Laney Hardcore! trs and sounded good ... Once the PA branch (not because 35W with battery without the sound is not the same sentence).

In addition to its purely technical quality, the TLE also any PRICE concurence! I first power hsit scabies with Ibanez, who was returning in the same odre prices, but critics we'll fesait taient trs bad and the model found. And what Laney sounded as good or better than a Peavey much more expensive.

Then the point of view there were connections in the same price range with the Beringer XLR and a graphic equalizer, more powerful, with more than 100w (130w ?)... silent but the sound was worse than if sagit a guitar amp ...

In short this is a Laney Russianness. Great Performance / QualitPrix!
