Useful, compact little amp.

Keith9364, 07.02.2015
The Laney AH40 is capable of performing as a makeshift small PA system and handles microphone work well. It works acceptably as an acoustic guitar amp, doing my Alvarez AF66 with B-Band electronics no disservice at all. A solo singer with an electro acoustic could probably make good use of this in a small venue. There are two downsides that would, if I were searching for a product such as this, make me consider the AH80 instead. First, there's the lack of reverb, which the 80 has, and second, the sound quality when playing MP3 tracks from, say, a phone, is somewhat less than hi-fi - it's a bit boxy and muffled. I think the problem is that using the auxiliary input bypasses the EQ, so you can't really do anything to shape the sound. Having said that, it's acceptable and certainly helps to make long spells on my rowing machine or treadmill much less tedious. Basically, it's a versatile and useful noise-box.

Good amplifier for ben and for small gigs

Jan591, 27.05.2013
I got the Laney AH 40 primarily for practicing at home. Stagepiano (Korg SP500) via Behringer Mixer in active field monitors (Fostex PM 04) is not necessarily a permanent solution ...

In general, I am currently not really in terms of music on the road, so I could not make a hard test so far. But the processing leaves nothing to be desired, so I believe absolutely, so that even smaller gigs can dispute or use the device as a monitor. For this I find the chassis form practical.
To the sound: The equalizer does not regulate so linearly, I believe, it is always so and you just have to try out what pleases. In any case, I have the opportunity here to exert a not insignificant influence on the sound. The potis do not scratch, do not wobble. The cable sockets make an absolutely stable impression.

From time to time I pinch an iPod-classic to the mini-link to the Mitjammen; Sounds a bit tinny, but still fun.

Without a comparison with other devices, I am on the one hand difficult to pronounce an unconditional purchase recommendation. If you want, you can have different models come and send them back. I find the price of the performance more than okay.

By the way: shipping and packaging were as absolutely absolutely faultless, for this a thanks to Thomann!
