    UTILIZATION

    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 ......

    SOUNDS

    Rock
    Crystal on light
    Jazzy muddy on the saturated

    Shoot a fund volume it changes personality and great crunch!

    UTILIZATION

    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.

    SOUNDS

    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"

    OVERALL OPINION

    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 ....

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The general view on the matter of taste that is either in the presence of a superstar of the 60 great rules or that is plugged into an ordinary classic "30
    Always it is that when quality is to go, we must recognize the manufacturer's expertise and the work
    In my humble opinion Laney bcp does not win any money on such a product it is more for the brand to show its expertise via this anniversary series and climb within one product at major manufacturers amp matchless store type, Soldano, Mesa Boogie and co

    Compare this with a valve jr amp, a peavey, ibanez or something else amp child is a grievous mistake

    We like it or not could well be in the studio of a slash, a clapton or I do not know what a great musician
    After that is an amp you need to know to sing the guitars! I love it due! and me too!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 months and can not get enough, the sound of this amp are wonderful.
    These strengths are the quality of sounds, its versatility, power and vintage look too gnial.
    The only BMOL is the reverb. How can we produce an amp of this quality and to put a reverb that? Finally it arranges with pedals and it's killing total ...

    The report qualitprix is ​​more than adequate in view of these benefits sound and quality workmanship.

    I would do the same choice without hsiter, forget the other classic blues junior and 30, this amp is really top I forgive him the same bizarerie rverb that serves as his only weakness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I was looking for an amp lamps "small wattage" of quality for the home, while it takes several esprant DCEN without "stumbling."
    I t tempted by Blackstar, but the quality seemed a bit tight, and HP 10 "is well below that of the Laney 12". That said, the templates are similar but the prices will double.
    Before buying it, I cum opinions about this amp on the internet and it seemed to be flawless for Laney.
    For my part, I must say I had enough of t with respect to the quality of some matrial utiliss: potentiomtres quality of plastics, quality of coating ( blue), the plywood used for the structure ..., which may suggest, I think that the indoor of the bte, prices have also to be shot (at least in part) even if in some cases, efforts have rels t effectus: it is clear that for just 900 (including 538-port-o on the site I have bought it can not ask for the moon, even for a 5 Watts of twenty pounds!
    So the price quality ratio is good if you do not pay "full price".
    It is clear that this amp compare those brands such as Ibanez, Peavy and company is not really wise, has not really see anything but the most prestigious brands compare like Mesa, Soldano, Matchless .. . is not, I think he no longer objective.
    This is an amp that is between two worlds.
    Still, if you're looking for ultimate quality in an amp lamps, and you have what it takes in the piggy bank, go your way, there are many more ... for more.
    If like me, you just plutt your budget level, the coup attempt: I believe that for just 550, it is clear that we can not beat gure.

    Well, I tried it a few hours now.

    Aesthetically, it is really nice, good, must love the British style, but it has a pretty face. I like the knobs white, gives it a stamp.
    Dpliable that allows the foot to tilt the amp, even if everything seems a bte, is apprciable.
    Please note that the grip seems a bit feeble, too, I advise you immediately of being protected, by taping plastic around it.
    Ok, was not terrible, but has no risk of damaging.
    APRS, if you do not 'travel and keep it in the living room, this is not essential.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is it simple? Gets it easy to sound good? The manual is clear and sufficient? * ...
    This is an amp everything from classic, two inputs, poatrd volume of clean, switch to brightness, volume and level of drive, adjustable bass middle and treble, reverb and tone.
    In plug and play, no worries. If we add their effects pedals, requested a little time rglage. But hey, like all amps!
    All knobs are sensitive and you can really shape the sound according to his wishes.

    The manual, well it's 5 or 6 pages in English. At the same time, it is not really necessary.

    just missing a tremolo!

    SOUNDS

    Is it your style of music? With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play? What kinds of sounds you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", " ",....) fatty what are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest? *

    I have since last Saturday, I could test it for a few hours Sunday.

    Hop, came home, my strat direct connection, clear sound fabulous (c'tait a priority for me) the distortion really gniale English too, I really like this amp, besides its quality by the possibility to sculpt the sound!

    Deuxime test, connection of effect pedals, compressor, MXR M102, a TS808, a Jekyll and Hyde.
    Not bad, but I feel he resents the compressor, it hums a little time.
    To see ... I found that to be cushy, it was good trs plug the jack under penalty of buzz.
    I vir compressor, chang two cables with new ones, and no more buzzing. I'll go do some shopping the next move of cables.

    Troisime test the effects loop. And well ... it's really not that good must admit ... I have just one branch fulltonedeja vibe, and it is clear that the sound of the guitar when using no effect DGRAD is not bad ... yet it is endowed with a true bypass.
    So, I place in the chaining guitar amp, and looks even better when to go.
    APRS to see, that tinkering may be well the knobs, you can get something good by using the effects loop ...
    I have not tried with the delay, apparently, is a type of effect as the loop of Laney bear well (according to the manual).
    For me, it's not too teacher, I use little or rarely trs effects modlisation but if you have a set of 5 or 6 pedals, you really have to test them before the offer!

    Lareverb seems well made, although apparently, not everyone soitpas agree on this point. It is discrete, but all the same Submitted. For me, it is of good quality. Sure, there are better, but even when a password.

    I play blues, blues rock mainly, and is nickel for a. The distortion really trs Led Zep sound when you push it well. I considered not using it that crunch, but ultimately, I think I'll use it grows well, and use the OD of the Jekyll and Hyde for the crunch, the TS808 as my booster. The distortion of the JH trs going well too, not too pushed, it gives her a banging and aggressive, hard kind that crunch!

    Apart from the effects loop, this amp lacks a tremolo to make it almost perfect!

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long you use it and what is the particular feature you like best and least? Have you tried many other models before acqurir? How do you report qualitprix ? With the exprience, you do again this choice? * ...
    I voualis a very versatile amp that can allow me to play first home and with my group if possible.
    I have been using trs little time, but have tried twice dj store (once for over two hours!), And 2 or 3 hours at home.
    I cum forums and advice for over a month, I tried several other 5 watts, which are generally incomparable in terms of price, quality or power ... (Fender Super Champ, vox ac4, epiphone junior ...)

    What is nice is that you can take home a small volume without rveiller neighbors o girlfriend with great quality sound!
    And at the same time, we feel that the BTE has in the stomach.
    For a repeated 'I am sure it goes without problem (Checker in September) for a scne, may go but I think that the transplant of a sound (via a microphone to enjoy the HP celestion) is ncssaire, especially for his clean, unless you only play stuff zen of course ...
    Or treat yourself to a baffle.
    Anyway, if it's convincing, I dbar my VOX AC30 CC2!

    Apart from the effects loop, weight (20kg), but it's bearable, and, as I'm boring if there was a tremolo effect on it, it's almost a no-fault for this amp is hand England.
    Ah, another little trick, when you switch the drive to the clean sound, if the reverb is active and the gain lev slap a little reverb for change. I do not know if I express myself well, but all fawn, nothing serious I think.

    I think I referrer this choice, this amp is almost unique in its range, and if I had to take something else, it would be a superior quality amp, so much more.
    Good qualitprix, although these can vary widely ...
    A try at least and if you fall in love, empty the nest egg!

    Edit: Ok, APRS a little practice, I admit that as some people say their opinion, how Laney was able to put a reverb as rotten as a receiver?

    The sound is very typical for me but I think it's okay. I put a little time to tame it but now I love it. Very mellow, So British! It reminds me of the 5051 TLAudio I use for my voice. Truly sublime when you love that sound.

    I have put my knob Duesenberg low enough for it not too Crunch. Volume at 5 watts it goes. I am solo on stage, on large trays I have a little in return, in small places, I must decline!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months.

    I tried just about all the small combo lamps. This is by far the one that suits me more. After that it should go to things bcp more powerful, expensive and bulky!

    Yes I would do without this choice points. And then on top of his, what face ...

    9 because I put that a bit more volume would have been nice ...

    Power: 5W Ben is just misleading, and this is my problem: too much for a play quietly in an apartment.

    UTILIZATION

    Can not get any easier as use.

    SOUNDS

    Rather warm and velvety tones for clean, very nice. We can make it more brilliant that said thanks to the key Bright, and / or tone, plus of course the equalizer. So it becomes quite versatile. For distortion, I think it's great too, she has character and is not garish, it's like the clean sound, it is warm and musical. For more cons is a good overdrive distortion, because the gain in depth, especially if you can not push the volume too much, it saturates little much, for the really saturated, I am obliged to put the Gratt......

For more cons is a good overdrive distortion, because the gain in depth, especially if you can not push the volume too much, it saturates little much, for the really saturated, I am obliged to put the Gratt position dual microphone, and possibly even trigger the boost (I have a little boost on my Blade, which boosts the preamp gain).

    ! Attention because this amp has a feature that was for me a very unpleasant surprise: the effects loop. This one, unlike any other amplifiers in which I played before, only allows to add the effect on the signal, it therefore does not divert the entire signal. So it's great if you want to use it to add a delay, reverb, or effect of this kind, but the rest is useless. Example: my pedalboard with volume pedal that I always connected in a loop on an amp, it does not work, the volume pedal does not handle the volume of the overall sound, but only the volume effect. For compression, the same, it does not work, wah wah, bof, distortion, forget too. In short, it is obliged to connect the pedal line between guitar and amp, which has a lot of drawbacks.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Ultimately I'm disappointed because it was my first tube amp, and after using it all day, we must go to the obvious: this is not possible to have such an amp to play apartment. 5W Yet, we say that it is very small, and testing it at the store, it seemed playable. But no. Of course you can play at low volumes, but here, honestly, the sound is not really interesting, and I am sorry to say this, but it gets worse as a good transistor amp, it can not have fun; it must be somewhat the same effect as driving a Ferrari on the caps of the ring road (well, I guess) So if we push the sound is ok, we realize the full dimension of this amp, and this lamps that provide, but it must be solved: it will never happen in my apartment that serves as my studio man, unless I agree to kill my neighbors so they never complain, and also to become deaf in a few months. On stage there, ok, it must be the super good time, but since I play more often at home for fun or to save that on stage is not the right plan.
    Added to this the fact that the effects loop is wired strangely and not suitable for my use, I'll make it tomorrow and see what cons I can exchange it, death in the soul ... Ultimately I thought I would make a great gift by offering me finally a tube amp, and although I was wrong.

    After it seems that there are reducing power, for example in VHM. A test then.
