Go Metal or Go Home!

Laney's IRT60H Ironheart guitar amplifier head fuels your axe's signal with all the metal you could want. Four ECC83 preamp and two 6L6 output tubes provide plenty of warmth, and push/pull three-band EQ controls make crafting your tone easier than ever. This metal-minded amp head features clean, rhythm, and lead channels, a footswitchable pre-boost control, master volume, dynamics, master tone, and a variable wattage control so you can rock out with the full 60 watts, or dial it back to less than 1 watt for fat tube sounds at low volumes. Plus, the IRT60H adds Laney-designed digital reverb, and a variable level FX loop. The included FS4-IRT footswitch allows for seamless channel switching during your performance. It all adds up to a sick tube head for the metal guitarist.

Three Channels of Warm Tube Tone

Your IRT60H Ironheart amp head offers three channels of dynamic and powerful metal tone -- clean, rhythm, and lead. The clean and rhythm are more like two different modes of the same channel, sharing the same three-band EQ dials. The clean channel provides plenty of warm articulation, brightness, and all-around organic projection. Your rhythm channel brings in a little more brightness and tightness to your sound, and your lead channel gets heavy, with more body and breakup for wailing solos and ear-piercing riffs. The four ECC83 preamp tubes and two 6L6 output tubes give each channel an unmistakably British sonic force that'll steal your heart instantly.

Dialing in the Metal

This baddie is loaded with dials and controls that might seem a bit overwhelming at first, but you'll love the sonic versatility at your disposal. Each channel has its own volume control, and your lead and rhythm channels feature gain controls to bring in some breakup. The footswitchable pre-boost control allows you to get a little extra push on each channel for a distinct sonic shift, in essence giving you six different channels to play around with. Both rows of EQ controls boast a push/pull shift feature to give you even more tonal freedom.

Master Section Controls

On the right side of the IRT60H's front panel is the master section, featuring dynamics, tone, reverb, and watts controls. The dynamic control will tighten up the low end -- minimizing it when turned to the left and letting it flow in when turned to the right. The master tone control brightens or darkens your amp's overall output, and the wattage dial acts like a master volume control, allowing you to use this forceful baddie at bedroom levels if you don't want to wake the neighbors -- while still pushing your tubes hard.

Seamless Switching

The IRT60H Ironheart amp head comes with a FS4-IRT footswitch to let you seamlessly switch between channels and settings. This tool also lets you engage and disengage your pre-boost settings so you can get boatloads of control right at your feet. This amp head is an awesome cohort for lovers of rock or metal, and you'll be amazed at how much tonal variety this baby can dish out via a few simple tweaks of your controls and settings.

Product Description

From the brand that brought you the sound of Heavy Metal comes the IRT60H. Forged in the Black Country. Producing 60 watts RMS of all ECC83 & 6L6 valve tone the IRT60H 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 three channels on the IRT60H give you 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 IRT60H Lead channel has an independent 3-band EQ with pull-push shift features on each control allowing for some radical lead tones.

The Pre Boost feature is a great feature on the IRT60H. Pre Boost works just like kicking in your favourite boost pedal right before your amp. It's available wherever you are on the pre amp and can be switched in or out via the supplied footswitch. A standout feature of the IRT60H range is the Watts control in the master section. This allows you to really screw down the output of the IRT60Hs 2 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 your 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 IRT60H 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 IRT60H 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 IRT60H's simple pre amp layout means you can easily dial your perfect tone.

Every IRT60H 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 IRT60H is a serious metal amp and much more.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "One of the best Metal and Rock amp heads you can buy!"
Sound: The sounds you can get from this amp are great. I believe the amp could cover any style of music you want to play but it excels when playing Metal or Rock music. It sounds like a cross between a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier or Mark V and a Marshall JVM head. It's a darker sounding amp for sure when I compared it to an Engl Screamer 50 head. As far as tips to make it sound better you have to tweak it to suit the gear you're using with it. It sounds good at all gain stages but personally I would'nt use the gain maxed out on the rhythm or lead channel. This amp does sound the best when you have the watts control knob set at noon or higher and the channel volume for the rhythm or lead set at 5-6. The clean channel volume should'nt be set any higher than 5 or it will start to break up a little. You don't need a tube screamer with this amp to get a good lead tone just adjust the eq on the lead channel and you're good to go(bump the mids,treble,and gain little more than your settings on the rhythm channel). Use a good noise gate/suppressor with this amp for sure. Feature: This amp is chocked full of good features. Having three channels is the best feature of this amp I think. There are only two faults with the features on this amp. The clean and rhythm channels share an eq section which really does'nt bother me but could maybe be a problem for some people. The Pre-Boost seems to add a lot of noise to the amp and is only useable on the clean channel in my opinion. The Pre-Boost used on the rhythm or lead channel sounds like crap. Laney should redesign this Pre-Boost somehow. The pull pots on the eq are useful but I only use the mids pull pot on the clean/rhythm and lead channel. I would definately use an additional eq pedal or rack eq to enhance the sound of this amp or any amp for that matter. Red leds inside the head are the icing on the cake! Ease of Use: You will have to spend some time to get this amp to sound good with your gear just as you would with any other amp. I only scoop the mids a little for Metal music on the rhythm channel. If you're playing anything else keep the mids at noon on the rhythm channel. Quality: This amp seems to be well constructed for being made in China. I had a guitar/amp tech check this amp out and he said it was a well made beast! Value: I bought my Laney IRT-60 Ironheart head for $630 blemished here on Zzounds. I would have bought a new one too for $850 if I had to. An incredible value to buy this amp with so many great features for under $1,000. I compared this amp to some other ones that were $850-$1,400 and this one had the best bang for the buck period! Manufacturer Support: I have'nt had to contact the manufacturer for anything yet. The Wow Factor: Red led's look very cool on this amp head. That's what caught my attention to this amp. Then I found out how good it really does sound. Overall: See detailed sections below.
Style of Music: Metal,Rock,Hard Rock,Classic Rock,Alternative,and Punk.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good head"
Overall: I researched a ton before buying this amp. I found it to be the best value for the components. I'm not a gear head or a tone snob, but after many many years of just settling for the cheapest thing or just buying without researching, I made sure to buy only what I wanted. I sold my Fender Twin and had a set budget to work with. I learned all about tubes, channels, FX loops, etc, read many publications and reviews, played a few heads at a rehearsal studio with my band, and eventually landed on this head. I ranked it high in terms of quality for the money, number of channels, tone shaping control, and overall coolness factor. At this price, it was competing with the HK Tubemeister 18 head, the DSL 40 combo, and the Diamond Assassin. I also bought the Jet City USA cab with Vintage 30s in it for a great price. Those speakers seemed to sound the best to my ears after many reviews, and I couldn't touch any new 2X12 with V30s for less than 400. Both components were a steal.So I got my stuff 3 days after I ordered (TY ZZounds), and I have been playing the rig mostly without effects for about 2 weeks. Holy crap, the clean channel on this amp rivals my fender twin. The rhythm and lead channels are exactly what I wanted and the boost gives me 3 variations for each channel. It's got tons of versatility. I took it to my band rehearsal and plugged into a 1960 cab and it was epic, and so easy to use. Laney provides some sample settings in the manual for different types of sounds and those seem to be right on the money for me. Not sure about quality since I only have it a few weeks, but it's built solid. Extremely happy with my IRT60.
