LANEY CUB 12R VALVE GUITAR AMP

Steven9531, 25.07.2015
Ok, I've had about 25hrs playing out of this amp so far over 6 sessions & it has been a right little gem...I just can't knock it, it plays really well with active transducer pickups & passive magnetic pickups, I use the 1w for the elec acoustic active transducer -epi Texan & 15w with my passive magnetic pickups on my other electric guitars being my casinos with P90s & this amp really has a nice tone lows mids & highs are all nice.

I can confirm that this amp is also very quiet when you switch it on so NO annoying loud hum or buzz, so all in all a great amp at a great price, ideally suited I believe to rock, pop, blues, country, & I expect it will cover most genres of music to include metal with the help of the appropriate pedal.

It did infact travel well from Germany to the UK as on delivery all I had to do was just re-seat the valves back in position as they had slightly dropped during transit but this is quite common in most valves amps when on a rigorous transit from one country to another particularly in the hands of a number of couriers etc, however the valves on this amp are probably the most easiest to access once the rear cage is removed ,of all amps I've owned in 35yrs, so this was not an issue.

One other thing to bare in mind is these amps from Thomann come with an EU schuko 2 pin plug? & UK is 3 pin so you will need to do 1 of 2 things request Thomann to send a Schuko to 3 pin Uk plug adapter (not their offering of an ss snake cable kettle lead will serve no purpose other than being free) the existing Laney cub 12 R is delivered with an EU schuko plug) the cable is hard wired or buy one off the net for about £5 as I did, you simply plug the EU schuko plug into the schuko to 3 pin UK adapter as simple as that & just plug the 3 pin plug it into the wall...done!

I can confirm that Thomann are currently the lowest price in Europe I could find at the moment for the Laney cub 12 r...So a bargain to be had...just make sure you allow £5 to get yourself an EU schuko 2 pin to UK 3 pin adapter, & ensure all your valves are plugged in all the way home before you switch on....& enjoy a lovely tone & power from a light to carry amp! so very easy on the back! enjoy!

versatile little amp

steelyDave, 09.10.2015
I tried out this amp on a visit to Thomann in Burgebrach as I was looking for a small, lightweight combo with 12 inch speaker. After trying out many amps, I settled on the Laney. However, I decided to change out the stock speaker to a Celestion V30. Since making this modification, the amp now sings!! I play through the Laney with pedal steel guitar and needed something for smaller gigs and for recording situations. I wanted a sound that could give a little hint of breakup when pushed and this amp really does the trick. The on-board reverb is not very nice though. It's a little sterile sounding and not very pleasant on the ears.
I've put this amp through its paces with a few different electric guitars also - Gibson Les Paul and an Airline 59 reissue - and it sounds great. All those vintage tones can be got with the turn of a dial. Especially with the Les Paul - it's real possible to get close to an early Led Zeppelin 1-era Jimmy Page tone - clean but with just enough power and grit.
The amp is nice and lightweight even with this speaker change which was my main motivation for purchasing. It also looks very cool - many people have asked what brand it is. I would really recommend this amp but would really recommend the speaker change. The stock speaker just didn't cut it. Very good value for money and can compete with the big guns!
