    Laney GC120
    transistor amplifier 120w (mono)

    2 comes in (high / light) with light a priori (so you can not plug 2 guitars at the same time)
    effects loop in / out the rear

    overdrive and reverb type Accutronics (not the spelling)

    UTILIZATION

    The use is very simple, you plug, you play.

    SOUNDS

    Sound .....
    playing on the gain, the sound is clear trs good (for a transistor amp) you get close to having a small heat lamps ... BUT, the sound is the same regardless of the guitar top branch (j'exagre a little but say it is not transparant) it still sounds LANEY, fortunately, the current multi-fx amp simulations offer which gives a different sound amplifier. it is better to connect all the fx (the same distortion) in the effects loop, the sound is much better.

    the overdrive is crap so I do not even talk about ....

    the reverb is a rverb standard.

    power is HUGE is a true 120w transistor perfect for RPET and concerts (the volume of 2 ncessite an ear protection)

    the speakers are indestructible, they can push the amp, they are! ! !
    So the one who loves the sound will be pleased laney (7 / 10 because we do not sound lights .... but 3 x more expensive), who prfre sound fender must go his way.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good amp for concerts and RPTES if one is not looking too on the quality of sound (which is only correct if you like the sound LANEY).

    Rsiste amp that time (except that my rverb do more cutting on / off, luckily the FX 10 is 0) (my amp 15 years)

    HP indestructible

    Enormous power.

    Need a distortion / overdrive collection outdoor (because it is inside is zero)
    c'tait my first amp and I owe him my partial hearing loss .....
    I bought it in 1995 and handing me in this context, I do it again the same choice

    Start switch the reverb (the reverb is on his way to the 2 channels)

    - Chorus

    the distortion and reverb and chorus are footwitchables

    UTILIZATION

    The config is very simple, you connect, play. As expected, the high input saturates more than the low entry ...

    the sound is good right now on the clean channel.
    the distortion is older, very transistors.
    the chorus is not bad, not at a Valvestate 8240, but very usable.

    no manual.
    But it is available online:
    https://www.laney.co.uk/manuals/GC30-50-80-120-120C-GH120C% 20Manual% 20 -% 201994% 20 -% 20Issues% 201.pdf ( https://www.laney.co.uk/manuals/GC30-50-80-120-120C-GH120C%20Manual%20-%201994%20-%20Issue%201.pdf )

    This, he says does not matter ...

    SOUNDS

    With its metal look, it might seem built for big sounds, but it's clear that his is the most captivating, the distortion is moderate.

    Jackson played with a JJ4, you get clear on the jazzy sounds, slamming or, depending on the settings and microphones ...

    On the distortion, it was very dirty sound (it takes down the drive so that it remains operative). short, difficult to have a nice crunch. It sounds very transistors.

    The chorus is good politics.

    Note the clear sound is more beautiful than the GC120 on GC120C

    OVERALL OPINION

    A good amp, very (too) powerful but requiring distortion pedal.

    Note, it is rather heavy (26kg sure)
    the light is nearly at the level of tube amps I think ... So great is the highlight of the amp
    The distortion is rather disappointing, but we get by fiddling has sth of exploitable.
    [gc120]
    The amp is not for me, they lend it recently. However, given the exchange price at which these animals, if I find one I take, it's really terrible. In terms of distortion, the distortion a bulldog on it should put this amp has very good!

    Note, the receiver had not served for 7 years and after a bomb hit on the knobs, everything works: outstanding!

    EDIT: I found a GC120C in OCCAZ I bought.
