Laney LA30BL

Tube Amp Head for Electric Guitar

The LA30BL was a prototype from 1968, which had the same preamplifier circuit as the LA100BL with a 2x EL34 Class AB output stage with 30 watts RMS. With relatively low gain within the amp, the LA30BL is very open and dynamic, providing a great platform for effects pedals. Ideal for the modern trend of combining relatively clean amplifiers with pedalboards and stacking distortion in front of the input.

Willie G, 12.01.2020
very happy in general with thoman - everything went quickly and cleanly - shipped quickly too - 10/10 - the amp itsself is fantastic - it looks great - sounds great too - its not for everyone tho - if your into modern extreme metal amps - with bells whistles - multi channels - this is not the amp for you - not a high gain monster - if your into late 60s / 70s rock its perfect - its not bedroom friendly either without a power soak/attenuator - but its a beautiful piece of retro kit - probably bought mainly by iommi fanatics like me - youll need a drive pedal too to get the best out of it - i love it - laney should be applauded for putting this out for under a grand its a bargain - great looks great tone - many similar boutique retro style amps are selling for treble the price of this - all told im thrilled with it - its a great piece of retro kit - if you can live with no master volume - 1 channel - treble boost pedal in the front - attenuator lowering output to the speaker its great - if not look elswhere - 10/10 bargain of the year - go treat yourself

Schöner Amp !
Martin Ro., 27.11.2018
Da hat Laney einen in meinen Ohren sehr gut klingenden Amp auf den Markt gebracht. 30 Watt Clean mit enorm Druck dahinter ! Übersichtliche Anordnung der Potis; sauber verarbeitet ist er auch.

Ein Blick ins Innere: Einen laut Artikelbeschreibung "Custom Made Vintage Design Ausgangstransformator" hat er nicht. In meinem steckt ein "Made in China"-Standard-Ausgangsübertrager drin :(
War in dem Punkt enttäuscht ! Hatte der Beschreibung nach eine Partridge -Trafo-Kopie wie in dem neuen LA100BL erwartet.

Was dem Amp fehlt ist a: ein Effekt-Loop und b: ein Master-Volume.
Da ich nicht unbedingt ein Effekt-Loop brauche und nur an einer 16 Ohm-Box (4x12er mit Celestion G12H 75 Heritage) spiele, habe ich den 4 und 8 Ohm Anschluß intern abgeklemmt, 2 Kabel umgelötet, 1 Kondensator eingelötet, und schwupp: kann ich mein Pre-Phase-Master-Volume-Poti an die 4 und 8 Ohm Anschlüsse einstöpseln ohne den Amp optisch zu verschandeln und habe Black Sabbath-Paranoid-Sound in akzeptabler Lautstärke hören.

Danke, Laney, für diesen tollen Amp !!

Nachtrag 11.03.2020: Bin keine Nicht-Fachkraft, sondern Kommunikationselektroniker Fachrichtung Funktechnik und somit des Lötens mächtig :)
Und von dem Amp bin ich immer noch begeistert !! Ist quasi der LA100SM in der Mini-Version ;)

C'est un 20/20.
SGJGibson, 08.05.2018
Une longue attente depuis le NAMM 2018, mais une attente qui valait le coup.
Prévu pour combiner un gain relativement bas sur l'ampli et accueillir de la saturations venant d'un pedalboard, il est parfait pour le stoner doom et psychedelic rock. Un treble booster, un volume élevé et c'est Black Sabbath. Remplacez le treble booster par une grosse fuzz et c'est Electric Wizard.
Le seul petit défaut (qui n'en est pas vraiment un au final) est le manque d'un master volume. Défaut facilement solutionnante après un passage chez un technicien ampli pour un petit mod.
Pour ce qui est de la qualité de fabrication, Black Country Customs ont fait un boulot incroyable. Le tolex est très bien appliqué.
Un ampli valait tout à fait le prix.

Groß - aufgeräumt - unbestechlich und laut!
Thomas529, 22.02.2019
Der Amp ist wie die Box absolut super verarbeitet mit einer tollen Optik wie Haptik. Es ist ja mittlerweile raus: handverdrahtet im Sinne von manuell verlöteten Bauteilen ist dieser Amp nicht! Kein Mensch kann das für den Preis, wenn er davon leben muss - im Innern ist eine gut aufgeräumte Platine mit z.B. den Potis in Printmontage! Das macht alles einen sehr soliden Eindruck und ist mir viel lieber als schlampiges Herumgelöte von unterbezahlten nicht Fachkräften.
Ich habe mich noch nicht mit den vielen klanglichen Möglichkeiten der vier Eingänge samt Berückung etc. befasst: Was ich bisher gehört habe ist über alle Zweifel erhaben. Die Klangregelung ist effektiv aber nicht aufdringlich und ab Lautstärkestellung 1,5 - 2 klingt er voll und dynamisch aber halt auch schon sehr laut (vielleicht als Plattform für Pedale gerade so noch erträglich im Heimbetrieb) Spätestens wenn man versucht ihn ab Reglerstufe 4 anzuzerren fallen die ersten Bilder von den Wänden :-) In kleineren Räumen geht da ohne Attenuator nix.
Eine Offenbarung war die detailreiche Räumlichkeit und Dynamik (da bleibt keine Spielschwäche unerhört) und dass der auch ohne Hall gar nicht so trocken klingt.
