120 Watts of Heavy Metal -- with Ample Tone-Crafting Tools

The call of metal has pushed amp manufacturers to outdo each other in a quest to create the heaviest, most powerful metal amp of all. With 120 watts of all-tube fury and three channels that reach molten levels of gain, consider the Laney IRT120H Ironheart amplifier head a bold entry into the arena.

Check out this Laney video and hear the IRT120H in action:


Three Types of Stellar Tone

The Ironheart is a three-channel amp offering independent volume controls for each. The clean and rhythm channels share a three-band EQ and the lead channel has its own independent EQ. On the clean channel, you'll hear a range of clear tones that are responsive to your pick attack. Rhythm makes its home in the realm of vintage tube amps, serving up authentic classic rock tones with ease. The faint of heart should exercise caution before switching to the lead channel, where the Ironheart truly comes to life with hellish amounts of fluid distortion. Between the EQ controls, master tone, volume and dynamics knobs, there is plenty of tone shaping flexibility here.

From Whisper to Roar

The Ironheart's 120 watts of power certainly qualify it as heavy weaponry in any metal guitarist's arsenal, but it's also suitable as a bedroom amp when needed. The amp's master wattage knob lets you select power levels anywhere between 120 watts to less than one watt. Such low levels enable you to crank the amp for rich tube sound without raising hell for those around you. Variable output wattage makes the IRT120H a killer amp for studio recording, too!

Laney also has players covered who want extra kick from their amp. The Ironheart's pre-boost function acts much like an overdrive pedal, adding variable amounts of boost to create tube breakup on clean channels and push distorted sounds over the edge.

The Power of Tubes

The biggest contributors to the Ironheart's vicious roar are its tubes. Four ECC83 tubes run the preamp and are known for their clear tone and ability to handle low-end frequencies. The power section includes four 6L6 tubes, regarded for overall balance and versatility.

A player-friendly feature is the included FS4-IRT footswitch, allowing you to quickly switch between channels and toggle the reverb and pre-boost functions on and off. A variable level effects loop makes handling multiple pedals a breeze.

Features:

- 120 watts (variable down to <1 watt)
- Three channels: Clean, Rhythm, and Lead
- Two sets of three-band EQ (Clean/Rhythm and Lead)
- Pre-boost

- Dynamics control

Product Description

Producing 120 watts RMS of all ECC83 & 6L6 valve tone the Laney IRT120H possess masses of gain and like its metal relatives such as the Laney Klipp and the Laney AOR hits you hard between the eyes like a power hammer from hell!

The Laney IRT120H preamp houses three channels: - Clean, Rhythm & Lead all with independent level controls. The Clean and the Rhythm channels share a 3- band EQ with pull-push shift features on each control that gives you total control over your sound allowing you to dial in that killer tone. The Lead channel has an independent 3- band EQ with pull-push shift features on each control allowing for some radical lead tones.

Everyone has a favorite boost pedal you always seem to end up putting in front of your amp well leave it at home! One great feature on the Laney Ironheart is the Pre Boost feature. This works just like kicking in your favourite boost pedal right before your amp. It's available where ever you are on the pre amp and can be switched in or out via the supplied footswitch.

A standout feature of the Laney Ironheart range is the WATTS control in the master section. This allows you to really screw down the output of the Ironheart's 4 x 6L6 output section, down to less than 1 watt! Great for getting the sound of a full -blown metal head at bedroom levels.

Combine this with a Dynamics control which tightens up you low end when you're playing a full power and you have a great metal tone at whatever level you decide to play at.

The Tone control works really effectively and allows you to make quick adjustments to your overall sound should you for example change guitars.

The Laney IRT120H features a custom designed and specifically tuned reverb allowing you to add just the right amount of reverb wash over your tone. Adding additional effects via external processors is a breeze the FX loop on the rear of the Laney IRT120H has a switchable level control meaning you can easily switch your FX loop output level to match the ideal level for your effects gear.

The IRT120H's simple pre amp layout means you can easily dial your perfect tone.

Every Laney IRT120H is supplied with dedicated footswitch, which enables you to switch Pre Boost, channels and reverb without having to use the front panel.

There is no doubt that Ironheart is a serious metal amp and much more.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Rough start, bright finish!"
Overall: I picked up this head after my line 6 spider valve hd100 quit on me, I was very sad to see that amp go! After researching recommended heads within my genre I had narrowed it down to the peavey 6534 and the laney irt120h, played side by side, the laney was clearly the winner. The note articulation is far superior, clean channel is simply amazing, built in boost gives it the right amount of extra gain to Achieve the sound I was going for. The amp carries and sustains as well as any others, the presence knob is very responsive and the dynamics control can really tighten or loosen the bottom end. The reverb is the only thing about this amp that I do not find desirable, but I don't use reverb much, if at all. The irt120h features a bias option which I quickly utilized after receiving it, I switched the tubes from the 6l6 to el34's and it did wonders for the sound. The push/pull eq knobs really let you dial in the tone from modern "nu-metal" sounds to vintage 80's type iron maiden. Overall I was disappointed in the amp to begin with, but I kept doing what I had to do to dial it in, and once I got the sound I wanted, I haven't looked back. I would definitely buy laney again.

Overall: I bought this back in March, thanks to the play as you pay plan I had it in my hands in 3 days. I played with the settings for a few weeks and finally dialed in a sound that I love. This is my first tube amp, and what I fell in love with about this thing is that it lets the character of each guitar you play shine through. All my guitars have EMG's in them, but there are different wood combinations, and you can really tell a difference between the guitars when I switch them back and forth. The clarity and punch this thing has is AWESOME. Tons of gain on tap. So many features that actually work and shape your tone. I am 100% happy with my purchase and when my friends listen to my guitar tracks, I make sure to tell them that my tone is from the Laney Ironheart. This thing is a BEAST for the price. You can't beat it.
