Laney L5T112 Lionheart

Guitar Combo

The company Laney has been around for a long time, but has somehow never quite managed to get out of the shadow of a certain company starting with a big M... It's only in the last few years that success has come with amplifiers that follow their own particular modern concepts, and endorsers who really play their promoted Laney amps convincingly.

Small (to the smallest) tube amps are on the rise. In the past, the motto was more "the bigger, the better", putting many an ambitious young guitarist into debt, only to later realise that he could never get his mega stack out and into any venue, not least because the combined volume of one's co-musicians, the audience, and oneself don't really go all that well together. Thanks to Master Volume, this is now easily gotten to grips with, but 'the real thing' still remains the power amp distortion. And even with amps with well-tuned preamps, it does not hurt if the power amp is allowed to pump at least a little bit.

So what could be more logical than to build smaller amps, which can be ripped into during rehearsals in the studio or at home? The Laney Lionheart is an adult amp with a persuasive sound - only the 5 W power amp keeps it in the 'small-howler' category. With the 12" Celestion Heritage, you have an equally adult loudspeaker on board. Such a shortcoming of many a previous small amp, is not to be expected here. The sound control is, likewise, quite mature. There are two channels: one for clean(er) sounds, and the other for creamier distortion sounds.

Good quality tube combo, not too loud for home practicing

John Pumpkin, 09.11.2015
Not many are familiar with Laney amps. Even not many know that Lyndon Laney, founder of Laney amps, in 60ties formed a band with Robert Plant.

Amp is very solid, good cabinet, good speaker, 2 position footswitch and amp cover are included. 5w doesn't mean it is quite, it can be very loud.

Clean sounds are fantastic, very punchy, good middle eq. Really good value amp. I tried different amps in the shops with my guitars before picking up this one because it has high quality build and sound that I was looking for.

Overdrive gives some very nice tones, especially with my Gibson SG Special.

production moved away from the UK

03.01.2016
Good little champ, however only noticed after my purchase that the production for this particular model was moved to China along with changes in reverb circuit, other vital components and the speaker. So if you're wondering how you're being offered a PTP english-made tube amp for this price, actually you're not.
Still a solid choice for the price range though!
