Amcasci's review"Laney Cub 12"

Laney CUB12R
I purchased this amp because it sounded great and the price was right. After a week or so the power supply would go off and on. I returned it and received another and the same thing happened. So I went with a Fender Super Champ X2. If this problem has been fixed I would rate this at 4 stars. It is a fine sounding easy to use amp but two strikes and out for me.

Laney CUB12R
One channel with two selectable inputs: 15 watt or 1 watt (great for playing in an apartment)
HP 12 "
All lamps: 2 and 3 EL84 ECC83
From left to right: Reverb, tone, volume, bass, middle, treble, gain
The reverb can be switched via a switch (not supplied)
Effects loop (silent :)
8-16 ohm output to connect an external firm.
Can slightly tilt the amp with a removable metal tab located under the amp that is very lightweight (11.5 kg).
not stand by, damage. (- 1)
All course details Laney site.


Manuel brief and useless. The amp is very simple to use. Finishes and cosmetic appearance are impeccable.
However, I had a small problem with power supply (-3) with at the beginning. The store was immediately traded me without problem. Perhaps the lack of standby there is something (?). Or components. The seller assured me that the distributor had hardly ever return this model. I trusted him because he is a very professional and very nice guy.
So I got used to all the knobs to zero before turning it off and turning it to avoid any incident.
RAS since.


Initially I had the idea to buy a Junior Blues to offer a little brother to my twin reverb. But I found it difficult to deal with a very fast aggressive sound performance. So I tried this little amp straight from China. My faith and he seduced me immediately. Good clear sound, nice reverb. We can do cruncher fairly quickly however, which is not necessarily displease me. Pushing the gain and lowering the volume we get a big crunch see a beautiful saturation, perfect for blues, rock and very big rock, very fat. The tone control can be very useful for fine adjustments. The volume is amazing, even with 1 watt input he surprised by its performance. I thought that the use rehearsal and finally I'm already served in the bar and I was not disappointed. Big plus: it loves pedals in front (boost, distortion or modulation) or in the loop.


Aside from the small problem starting, frankly for the price what more? It really is a nice little amp and endearing. Ideal for beginners as for experienced guitarists at home, in rehearsal, bars, small scenes. I think he will accompany me for a long time.
I put 8 in overall score (and I note severe). I did not know Laney and suddenly it gave me the urge to try other models of the brand.

baxbrin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" the famous "tone" button"

Laney CUB12R
Everything has already been said except that I want to clarify.


There's no easier, You just have to use their ears and fingers ... it is great.


Perfect for the full range of clean to crunh. Maxi with a large micro spitting: AC / DC debut. There must be a choice, now the pedals, it does exist and there everything is possible (without the pedal = more like a channel).


So to wring the neck of those who say that the tone knob is useless: try a sustained distortion (for this beast, I mean, gain beyond the half) and you will discover that it changes color the distortion significantly.

However, it is true, if we stay in the clean / crunch small, this knob has no utility.

For the rest, I take my foot every time I use this beast. I put an Eminence Legend HP (it returns to shoehorn and a little heavier gear) result nickel. In two years, relamping, I'll stick him more serious lamps, it should be perfect. Only problem: the electronics can not balance the lamps.

chavilbus's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent value for money for this all-tube amp"

Laney CUB12R
All-tube amp (2 x EL84 and 3x ECC83), see the description for which patterns. Remember: the HP 12 inch, digital reverb, two inputs and one 15W, effects loop. 15 watts are there, input 1 watt is very useful for recording or playing at home, the reverb sounds good, effective and progressive equalization for the tone control I do not see much use but I do not mind. The little crutch seems gaget but it is useful when it is placed on the floor for sound projection. The weight is reasonable in relation to power. Cons: only 1 channel, no standby


very simpla to use, no need for manual once we easily get the desired sound with three bands of EQ, I still do not understand the usefulness of the tone.


I made a little demo with my 4 guitars that better that long speech: (in sequence: TV bridge, strat neck, sheraton neck, Les Paul bridge). The sound is classic rock and blues rock, overdriven overdrive style, balanced frequency serious doing well with 12 inches. It is difficult to have against a crystal clear sound, especially with doubles. With the gain at 3 ca crunch already a bit. As against that responds well to blow mediator.


I bought it used 6 months ago, for the price of a transistor amp low end I have everything I needed to power and sound level, suddenly we can pass on the light defects: only 1 channel, not really very crystal clear sound. For blues and classic rock, the stones to AC DC is really perfect, I do it again the same choice again. I tried the fender blues junior but he was too strong (not limited entry) and not much better for a double budget. The black star 5HR is more versatile and with two channels, but much more expensive and more "modern", the lionheart 5W Laney is excellent but not all in the same budget
