Laney WS80R
Combo Amplifier 80 Watts transistors.
No effect.
2 caneaux: a clear, an overdrive. Each of the reverb.
Spring reverb.
In / out effects loop, headphone jack, Line Out.
Fottswitch to control the reverb and channel switching, or one or the other or both.
Possibility to make some buttons (push / pull) to boost the sound.


Configuration archi-simple style .. amp
This gives the clear sound very easy DSIR.
Section distortion is not great if one seeks a sound metal. The sound is modulated trs, but never become violent. However I got was adapted, in drop tuning. Trs good channel to rock to blues.


The clean channel makes sounds absolutely gorgeous. O caches are the lamps?
we can shape at will. It sounds like Fender's mid-range, but it's not Fender, but not least, it is much cheaper.
The sound remains clear even at high volume, which is not always the case.
The Distortion channel by not merely against mtalleux not, even if the Disto is hot enough, can be perfectly suitable for solos, fast or not.
Use 2 cranberry at the same time may fall within the gadget, but refining the sound you end up with other sounds alluring.
Shred saturated with my Master, I end up with a sound palette is quite extraordinary.
The reverbs are good trs, it is more enjoyable to be able to spare.

In short, to the old Bonner gugurre Peavey - Laney, the question to ask is: does it sound clear?
If so, choose Laney, if it is for buggers, choose a Peavey ... But if we can saturate the first with a good distortion pedals, you can not do anything for the second for clean sounds


I use it for more than 10 years. Being now a home studio (and dad), I do not go out only rarely. But he did a lot of concert, dj t "overheating", and the speaker is always l.
The report quality price trs interresting, as it seems to have hidden somewhere lamps, as it is versatile.

Laney WS80R
Transistor amplifier with a power of 80 W RMS with a 12 inch, 2 channels, each with control of the equalization, gain and volume.


The setup is simple clear sound (EQ, presence and gain), on the overdrive channel is more complex because buttons treble, midrange and woofer are each push-pull which changes the sound character.
It is powerful enough for the stage as the bar I think I never exceed half the volume in the clear or saturated.


It is an ideal amp for many styles of music. In his clear is properly defined, but it sounds no more, it is far from lights but for the price gonna bluntly, the advantage is clear which allows sound when pushed to model the dynamics rather soft kind , snapping up more grain kind od very light. For channel saturated, it's closer to distortion than overdrive, the push-pull will allow you to change all that but unfortunately it brings back a lot of breath, the sound that comes out in all cases will be suitable adjustment rock, blues and good fats to hard rock but no further. I used a lot of guitar type above strat low end epiphone sg or ibanez guitar style equipped with DiMarzio pickups and one thing is certain regardless of the guitar amp used is not transparent and its what keeps his to my taste is a big flaw.


I used it for 3 or 4 years and for the price (140euro) j'espime he did a good job even though the sound is transistor and a little bit messy in saturated but beware it sounds and spits AC, I have then replaced by a 50W marshall AVT.
I think for the price today (2011) should be found better.
