Laney IRT60H
The Laney Ironheart is an all-tube amp with a power of 60 watts (enough for a configuration rehearsal, studio and live ...). Power it has two 6L6 Ruby Ec83 4 (also known as 12AX7) preamp.

In the manner of a Rectoverb, it has a switch to switch EL34 power in place of 6l6 without needing rebiaser. Very handy! It has all the connections needed to plug into any standard cabinet.

The Ironheart is a three channel (clean sound, rhythm and lead) which can be controlled via the foot with his footswitch provides (I will return in conclusion ...). It has two EQing: common with clear sounds and rhythmic sounds, and dedicated solely to the lead channel. Where it can be very useful is that it has a boost function that simulates a pedal Overdrive type TS9 or Maxxon which gives an additional gain on each channel type.

Another originality of this head is that it has a button dynamically, and finally a tone knob "watt"

- The dynamics give more or less "safe" in his
- The tone refines its settings, more or less acute, which is convenient for live conditions without having to modify the equalizer. It also allows more or less out of the mix.
- The knob Watt is actually a power attenuator that allows for a good performance lamps at low volume. Ideal for domestic work without disturbing the neighborhood or family! This knob can be likened to a master volume.

Despite its reputation métalleuse This head provides good versatility in many styles of music!


The sounds produced by the various channels are very good on the first try, provided of course, we love the wheat from the amp! It also sounds great at low volume, which is not negligible compared to the renowned competition (Mesa, Kosh and Engl ... to name a few). The knobs for EQ respond well which allows for accurate and efficient settings.

The set gives you confidence. Indeed, this amp is very well finished and the knobs do absolutely no gadget as I've read here and there ... In conclusion, it is very well built!

One minus for manual ... Although it is clear and concise, the different settings offered does not do justice to the amp!


I currently play in a rock band / Metal ... I previously used a Mesa Boogie combo Rectoverb but its too stiff it was suitable pleased that I wanted ...

I'm tempted by the Laney for many reasons:

- I know the brand but I never had the opportunity to play on a good amp Laney
- Different opinions were mostly positive
- The rate for a three-channel 60-watt lamps all it does not grow on trees!

So I bought the net without having tried it first ... And I was impressed from the first notes!

The clean sounds are really good, warm, round and not screaming and activating the boost is achieved by a wink really a typical small overdrive Ibanez TS9 (I own too). Perfect for a little blues to Jimi Hendrix! The clean sounds are clear, high-volume ... really very good!

The Rhythm channel is also very interesting: the winning race is very good ... it can go from mild overdrive with a big trunk definite saturation that does not bleed. And this is one of the great strengths of this amp ... The sounds are very clean and do not drool easily! After all is a matter of taste you might say, but personally I do support the gaveux rained off some amps ...

The lead channel is a continuation of Rhythm channel with greater headroom and a sharper grain pile. One can easily spend a big style rock, hard rock, punk to a more modern style metal snap the boost, which confers very typical PalMute specific groups of current Metalcore. However, this head has not rained a reserve of infinite gain ... but more than enough to reach more extreme styles!

Finally, a truly versatile head that can take you into different musical styles while doing great! From the point of view of ergonomics, the footswitch is really handy! It controls in a snap of the foot all channels, reverb and boost! Comes with the amp, there is other prestigious brands (Engl for its entire range and Marshall for his series of FMV) should follow the example of such initiatives as having lengthened more than 100 euros able to control all channels in the foot, I think it's just a shame ... And we're not talking about the same price range!


I do not have a habit of letting opinions on products I buy ... But it is clear that Laney performs a tour de force by offering this Ironheart budding musicians! Excellent quality / price ratio, excellent versatility (I repeat because it is truly the case, despite its reputation) and sounds very good indeed! (Played primarily on Gibson SG Standard in my case)

It easily rivals the great tenors of the current musical world ... I have owned various Mesa Boogie (DC 20, and single Rectoverb Rectifier) ​​and a Engl Screamer. I had the opportunity to try to as the dates of the JVM, Soldano, Powerball, 5150, Engl Savage etc ... Do not be fooled by the "ridiculous" price of this amp!

I also want to spend a rant on the amps so-called "cheap" made in Asia ... All amps supposedly high quality, hand made and that cost two arms and a leg I've owned have ALL fallen failed at least once (for several times and the screamer Engl Rectoverb elsewhere). And these are not innocuous repairs in most cases! In short, all that to say that the verse of "Yeah it's made in Asia then this is the m ** of" slightly iridescent tend to my hair ... Especially as pundits fuck more and more consumers by offering overpriced amps (which is not justified in terms of sound sometimes ... Who said the JVM?) without offering the footswitch with the amp (more than 100 euros lengthen and that is just critical to drive the amp), I say loud and clear: It's pathetic!

Last point: The Ironheart amps are controlled in the United States before marketing ............. Anyway I am totally conquered by the world of Laney brand!

Laney IRT60H






[post, 23/12/2012]
I have 2 1/2 months, used for metal Si and more anecdotal to the rock Mi Is it because this is my first head, but the setting is a little long at the beginning ( rpt 3-4) ... not that sound that can be learned are bad, on the contrary (it is always "musical"), but the knobs are so precise that it is a little difficult to beginning to understand. Especially the push-pull system offers many additional opportunities EQ. So do not hesitate to spend a little time, one-half unit to the right or to the left and the sound is changed fairly straightforward. Same for the gain knobs.
It is sold as a metal and very large gain oriented head, but curiously, I do not think the level of saturation so exceptional. I do not think it would go for the death metal or some "Nordic". Compared to a 50 per exple Rectifier solo, it is less aggressive even pushed forward: a little softer. Suddenly the gain knobs are used throughout the course, the sound is always accurate. So far I have not used the boost too with large distortion.
To the question out of the mix live, no problem! : Bravo: Because we can do a bit of everything you want at the EQ and it has a lot of dynamic (!). Even in standard tuning with a 4.5 gain and cutting a little low (-2), the Dynamics button (just) at noon, slap it down well in attack as soon as a bit string.
Difference Ryhtm / Lead: The lead channel is higher in volume (with the same settings) and a little more in the medium. It is not quite the same grain. This is a design that suits me: it helps to have a different sound, ideally located in the spectrum relative to the rhythm, but remains consistent. This is in addition to the opinion of the engineer-in sounds live :)

Otherwise, in general:
- It's Chinese, so with defects like: std-lamp by which flickered at the beginning (but not affecting the sound, it did for 1 week and since it turns on properly), the pedal cable which plugs look rather fragile (one screw has already crossed ...:?:)
- The reverb is a pleasant surprise: a single parameter, but it is correct
- The variety of sounds: the slight crunch on a single handle with a gain to 2.5 (very warm) rock between 4 and 6, and from rock to metal begins to strive beyond 7, it really fate well in more styles that could not be expected.
- The clean channel is usable (again good surprise) even if sharing the channel EQ with saturated, so it limits the possibilities
- A lot of breath on the overdrive channel when the knob beyond 13h 'Watts', which does not include playing but can be annoying on the breaks. Do not hesitate to switch to clean to shut him up.
- The final quality / price ratio is very interesting!

[edit of 03/13/2014]
- Tested with an Ibanez with 2 EMG85 in neck and bridge (yes, really) on it, I rediscover his head a little, it's party time at Tatallica black album :) It responds very well to cutting edge EMG and compact.

But ultimately, it is not so metal that advertising would have us believe (it comes out perfectly anyway), in that it is very comfortable in a heavy rock or even register with a its not too compressed, nice crunch, when compared to a duplex or Engl, I find it offers less saturated.

Maxime-666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Full of surprises"

Laney IRT60H
The Ironheart is a laney amp lamp has a full power 60 watts but adjustable from 1 watt to 60 thanks to the knob "watts". There are 3 cannal the lead, rhythm and clean which is the same EQ 3, bass, middle and treble, the same setting as the cannal lead. there is a pre boost, reverb and a tone knob watts used for the three cannal.
For Connextion there is a loop effect, enter footswitche, speaker outputs and of course the guitar enter


The configuation is it simple?

You can easily find a good sound as clean as that in the lead, the tone knob is very convenient because you do not need to re adjust all

Gets it easy to sound good?

Yes, the knob are fairly accurate

The manual is clear?

Yes it is very clear, but it is in English, for all connections is so it will illustrate all alone in the manual, they offer settings, I do not like all of the, if not the utiliter know each knob not need to read the manual you quickly understand their utiliter


Be it your style of music?

When I ordered this head I was a little afraid that lack of gain for my style of music, metal core, death core but it is a great surprise it has more gain than I thought so yes, it is suitable for my style.

With what I play guitar?

I play with a ibanez RGA72TQM up with bare knukle Warpig to play drop B and washburn rx 30 to play drop C.

What kind of sound?
I want to clarify that I use a baffle 2x12 blackstar HT

To clean: I do not use it but otherwise almost nothing to say, its beautiful

For rhythm: the one starts already have a big sound, a lot of gain, very precise, we feel good heat lamps in the

For lead: The one I use the most, there are plenty of gain, mine is a 7 and 7 a boost, already obtained a very very big drop in its sound and C already saturated. I put in drop B gain boost and a 5 to 6 if it is not accurate because there is too much gain, you must also change the EQ as a tuning has another sound is different. Caution must be put volume for 4-5 Gain (at 1 watt)


It's been 3 days since using it, I'd try other amps a lamp, bugera 333, orange dark terror, lagoba the beat, peavey 6505 + 112 and many other heads a lamp, I had never esseyer before you buy, ca was on a whim and after seeing the video.

-The price (599 euros)
-The footswitch included
The knob-watts, reverb and boost integration

-The weight (16 kg) but we know lorqu'on ca buy has a big head lamp

With experience, is that I do it again this choice?

Yes, without hesitation especially for the report qualiter / price (have the time)

Nikowwww's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Interesting"

Laney IRT60H
Tube amp mounted with 4 ECC83 and 2 6L6 (interchangeable via the bias), class AB amplifier. <br>Power point of view I'm on the 60 watt <br>Adjustment level was a 3 channel amp with 2 separate equalizers for&nbsp;the lead and rhythm&nbsp;the other for clean. To the rhythm channel it's on or off the lead and clean channel simultaneously. <br>The bass and treble and middle&nbsp;have push / pull pots&nbsp;(to bring out what you prefer) <br>Each channel&nbsp;has a separate volume, and rhythm and lead cannel each have&nbsp;a gain knob. <br>Add to this that the&nbsp;amp has a boost activated via footswitch, a way to&nbsp;increase the dynamics, the wattage of the amp (<br>For this I give&nbsp;a 8/10 because of fiddling with the buttons, it is often difficult to activate what we want and must&nbsp;adjust the knobs&nbsp;to get there, and we regret the absence of a master volume


Config level, this is special, as stated above must&nbsp;adjust and know there a minimum, so the configuration is not that easy (after all,&nbsp;it's kind of my first amp so that it could be my lack of experience) <br><br>Regarding the manual, it is clear as spring water but not that useful (settings they offer are poor) <br><br>Its level can get the type of sound you want, no matter if your taste changes (in December I had a sound, now I have change for a sound that suits me more) <br><br>So for all that I put a 7/10


I mostly play metal, this amp is a Hi-Gain so that necessarily suits my style of music. <br>I play it with a Jackson RR3M mounted with Duncan&nbsp;SH2 and TB4. The distortion&nbsp;sound is sharp if somewhat mushy, and clean with some reverb is really beautiful. The sound is quite crystalline and is very good for an amp&nbsp;of this&nbsp;type and the metal tone is the&nbsp;big thing about this amp. <br>From time to time I plug in&nbsp;my Whammy DT, and it works well too. <br><br>The sound that I prefer is distortion&nbsp;from the 6L6 tubes&nbsp;is less runny for my taste (still a little but this gives some problems getting a clean gain sound) and clean sound which is very good.&nbsp;<br> I hate that this is too mushy&nbsp; with a bit too much gain.


So I've used it for almost six months before I tried a&nbsp;marshall amp, Laboga, Engl etc. ... but I did not like the idea of ​​single-channel equalizer for three different channels, and as soon as you&nbsp;put in the double equalizer they were maddening enough, they blow when&nbsp;the laney came out, it allowed me to find a good compromise of quality / price. <br>The feature that I like most about this amp is the ability to regulate everything from A-Z whether the dynamics through the tone and the wattage. The first boost is nice too! <br>At least, that's when I palm mute to make transitions on a note not palm mute it to a huge spike in the bass that stiflles everything. (But I think the speaker also comes into play) <br><br>The Value for money is good but I regret not having waited&nbsp;to buy the EVH 5150 50w. <br><br>With experience and the output current in terms of amp I know I would hesitate a long time that's for sure.
