Laney Cub 12

gimlub, 07.02.2014
Received the amp packed very well and everything was fine. Looks great and very compact, A comfortable handle to carry it around the house or go out for gigs. Good looking in the exterior.
The sound from 1w is the same of the 15w but in low volume. The quality is the same; great I have used both inputs and also the most important; the effects loop is special. I have try the effects in a clean channel I have in my guitar processor trying to reach a good clear tone full of blues, the music I play most. Absolutely amazing! All I can say about is that everyone should find his values but I wish to suggest these settings from left to right: Tone-7, Volume-4, Bass-7, Middle-6, Treble-6, Gain-2 or 3. With these settings, you will have a great clear sound I assure everyone who is looking to have. I played through Harley Benton L-450 Plus with that features Wilkinson humbuckers. Tubes are Ruby but I don't notice any change in sound and quality in comparison with expensive ones. The HH Laney loudspeaker is also brilliant. For the budget this is a great deal and you will have on your feet and ready to play loud if you want a very great guitar amplifier!

Small but loud.

John Ramsey, 25.01.2018
My first impressions of this amp were good as I opened the box to see it was well finished and seemed very sturdy. Then, I powered it up and plugged my guitar in and I hated it. The sound was bright out of control, strident, lacking personality, almost like a very annoyingly crispy solid state amp but distorting too easily as you push the volume up. I hated it so much, I almost returned it. Before making the decision to keep it or not, I decided I should look online and see if there was a fix and... There was one.
Turned out, the lamps were the problem. The ruby lamps installed on the unit from the factory are so poor sounding that they ruin the entire sound experience. After some research and some trial and error I settled on a combination of JJ Tesla and Groove Tubes that totally transformed my amp. Now it sounds clean and balanced. I understand that a choice of lamps is very subjective and that people may like the sound of the Ruby's but, for me, it was a necessary change. Now I love my amp to bits and would give it away for anything.
On a more functional note, I took this little guy on a good dozen small gigs (bars, clubs, small outdoor scenes), so far, and it does quite a good job keeping up with the big boys when properly set up. Plus it is a pleasure to carry it when compared to a full stack that will break your back and your spirit.
The <1w entry is great as it sounds just like the main channel but with neighbors friendly volume level. It is still surprisingly loud tough and I rarely pushed it past 3 when playing at home.
Conclusion, great little amp with plenty of power for a good price but you might wanna change the tubes.
