Laney L5T-112
This amp is 5watts class A and issues a clear its huge crunch and distortion. The reverb is not bad, only the size and weight of the amp can be a pb
But for the price around 900 euros, this amp is excellent.


Very simple amp to use


Suitable for any style except large metal sound

Laney L5T-112


No, the filter is very surprising. It is believed that the standard adjustment is at noon, and n is not, c is a fund right that must be started and then filter by removing the treble ......


Crystal on light
Jazzy muddy on the saturated
No strong saturation

Shoot a fund volume it changes personality and great crunch!


4 years
Great for home, small Repeated, and recording
Cheap secondhand

While it is advertised as a 5W tube Class A, but it's just amazing to hear the reserve volume it below the elbow. In an apartment home, I pushed 4 MAXI order to play good volume without alerting the neighborhood (I have very accommodating neighbors too) but it sends severely. For standard use, do not exceed 2 or 2.5. I insist on it because the amp is just monstrous. And its dimensions as it is not far from a VOX AC15. So we immediately forget the comparison with the FENDER CHAMPION 600 or GRETSCH G5222 which 5w but also do not play at all in the same court, both in its size and power level.
My model is used and equipped with lamps Tube Amp Doctor that the former owner has taken care to put in place of the original lamps. So just on that, my opinion is a bit biased because I do not know the sound with the original lamps.
If not for the look, I love the old blue vinyl, it has a very vintage look and really feel that it is an amp built to last, the building looks really great. To see in time, I've had three days but I'm not worried, I play already Laney at the base.
The tilt system is very welcome too. A small + compared to the competition, you really feel that Laney wanted to make a beautiful piece and do not forget anything.
on the other hand, 20kg wholesale for a 5W, as saying that the watt heavy.
In short, beautiful and complete, we forget the weight of the blow.


While the sound,
Well say that even if we are dealing with a very amp plug and play 2-channel sounding vintage, the control panel is already well supplied and we can find carefree sound that fits. We have two Hi and Lo inputs that differ in their level of output. Personally, I prefer to connect me Lo, the already substantial volume for 5w, it helps to manage. Moreover, the sound is better, all shades of games are better transcribed I think.
The clean sounds very creamy I must say, it is far from the Fender slap sounds, we like it or not. I love both but I have a soft limit for Laney, ideal for jazz among others but not that ... I'm pretty rock orientated and clean going really well in this registre.A also know that the more you push the volume, the more it begins to gently cruncher. Finally must still be 6 or 7. And given the mess he made 4, we do not want to go away from home. The BRIGHT switch is very good too, it accentuates the high frequencies. With my Les Paul, I leave engaged.
Equalization is effective, it really is possible to cut the sound, but there is no exaggeration, for example, in the sense that the bass are not too far back or too accentuated if ever the knob is rotated left right. ditto for the mids and highs. the effective range of each frequency is not super wide but sufficient and more, with the Tone knob, which actually makes the final color equalization, you can really do what you want. Equalization is common to both channels, Personal does not bother me at all. The reverb is also attractive, and progressive music. I'm not too fussed on it but it suits me for what little I use it.
The crunch channel is really excellent and also progressive. It starts cruncher from 2 of the gain and we can go carefree tickle good heavy rock, but not to the metal (the same time we do not buy it for that). But for anyone who wants to play, jazz, blues, variety, funk, rock Beatles Foo Fighters or RATM, this amp is really doing well. It sounds british sure. Arpeggios crunch still very defined and the amp has a huge dynamic. Even with the gain to 7, if you attack the strings, one always returns something "almost" clean, a little dirty. The amp responds very well. After in regards grain crunch, I would say that is between VOX and with ORANGE on the other hand, something good vintage. But hey, I do not like these comparos because for me who loves this brand more, sounds like LANEY LANEY point.
From my side, I also added a pedal MOJO JTM I intend to let light into a permanent base sound, the gain set to 1/4, it allows to have a clean crunch that just as soon as an attack little. And to the crunch, it makes me a mini headroom and more. Happiness knows more when quality pedals MOJO.
HP 12 ", and although it is just excellent. I did not much point on it by comparison against, but it fills me completely. Moreover, it is rare to see a Bowl 12" mounted on "small" 5w tube amps. Generally, it is 8 "or 10"


For value for money, in okaz, important not hesitate. A 400-450 € is a godsend. New, it is at about 750-800 € at the moment that can make a bit expensive watt but I think it is worth it because it sounds beautifully. I got mine to 400 € in almost Mint condition and comes with the footswitch and cover Lionheart, so what more. I bought it mainly to make the sound studio at home because I was tired of going through my computer which, while they troubleshoot, never replace a real amp plugin. I intend to do as small scenes (caf 'conc, bars, restau ....) and it will do well on PSN.
Otherwise, it is happiness. The only downsides are minis I think his big power which we do not operate completely apart and may be sensitive to its weight back.
Apart from that, FA-BU-lous
Anyway, I bought an amp ....

Laney L5T-112
Combo all tube 5w, HP 12 inches.
2 channels: Clean and OD.
Reverb and bright to clean.

Shared EQ for two channels.

2 inputs Hi / Lo, and a master volume for OD channel.

One foot in the amp to tilt


It is a plug and play amp, super easy to use.


The sound is typical british. Qd was even a very clean lens but quickly crunch (normal: 5 watt amp!). Impossible to get a clean sound for a rock band repeat example (with drummer bass singing etc ...).

But I never use the clean, I bought this combo for crunch: either clean thoroughly (10/10) on the drive channel 5/10, with adjustment of the master.

In 2 cases, there is a sufficient volume WIDELY rehearsals / concerts / big scenes.
The amp has a great dynamic, very easy to get a clearer sound by attacking less strings for example.

Grain crunch is quite open (not tight), but not as much as a plexi example. Presence is impressive, the amp does not sound dark at all, rather it is very sharp, typical british sound. In the amount of gain with humbuckers, one arrives at a kind of overdrive solo lead. You can also put a good OD pedal in front of the amp, cash superbly, and it adds a third channel amp.

He collects as well Octafuzz my and all my other effects connected directly in front.

There is in my view a video on youtube that shows quite accurately that the amp in the gut (despite the sound quality is not transcendent, it does not matter, I think we feel good about that video you feel when you play the beast. The beginning of the video is that the crunch was on its clean, more on the OD channel, we see that the grain of the clean channel, crunch when it is much more airy than the OD channel).

A true rock'n'roll machine.


I love this combo, it is exhilarating to be. Necessarily a bit expensive, like € 600 for nine 5w ... OCCAZ but it becomes affordable, and you can play in a group without problem if you are not attached to its clean. Otherwise, it will afford the big brother 20W (€ 1,000 new).

Before I had a Laney LC30 good amp too. The brand attracted me for its reliability, but the sound was a little too right, even if I kept it for several years.

With this one, I do not think changing amp for a while!
