Xadovitch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Laney CUB12
What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)? All-tube amp.

What is the power delivered? 15 or less than 1 watt

What connection? 2 input jack (15 or less than 1 watt), an effects loop, output to an external speaker (8 or 16 ohms)

What are the settings, the effects? Gain, tone, bass, mids, treble, volume.

UTILIZATION

Whatever the setting, almost all sounds are usable. The Eq is not very effective but are very musical pushed to the limit.

SOUNDS

This is an amplifier that meets the sound of the instrument and is especially great for clean sounds at low or "high" volume. The highs are especially nice (present without being aggressive). The entire spectrum is well balanced. The sound is rather "tight" but is growing once the amp is connected to an external enclosure type 4x12.

What's great is that with the entry - of 1watt, it is possible to saturate the power tubes while keeping a reasonable volume. The distortion of the preamp lamps is "not bad" but I think it is not his strong point.
However, it goes very well with the different pedals I've tried it.

I used to play funk. For this style is perfect and is also very good in a book jazz, pop or classic rock.
In any case, it buries all transistor amps I tried and did not blush in front of tube amps 2 times more expensive (p ex, I prefer the Fender Blues Junior).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months.
For the price it's a killer! With two inputs, this amp is designed for the work of studio recording.
I have a lot of stuff and frankly it's one of my smartest purchases.
The price is quite incredible. I guess they had to save money on quality control (the first one I received was defective but the second is nickel). As with all products made in China, I am afraid that I let go earlier than planned, but so far nothing negative to report.
