Super-Versatile Laney Amp Head for Stage or Studio!

Get ready for a versatile amp head to deliver the goods -- the Laney Ironheart IRT Studio Guitar Amplifier is ready to fuel your signal with power and superior all-tube tone. With a no-latency USB audio I/O and re-amping send, three channels of tone, three-band EQ controls with push/pull EQ shift, Laney-designed digital reverb, an internal dummy load, a high quality speaker-emulated record out, and a long line of controls to manipulate your signal, your IRT Studio amp head will bring pristine tube tone to your recording studio or live rig.

Zero-Latency USB Output of Dry and Processed Signal

Your IRT Studio amp head comes ready to connect to your DAW in no-latency fashion while delivering real all-tube tone. Your USB connection provides both the dry signal and the processed version -- split left and right -- into your DAW system. This allows you to alter and tweak the tone of your original recording so you don't have to go back and do a re-tracking of everything again.

Three Channels -- Lots of Tonal Options

You have a lot of tonal options when reviewing your IRT Studio's avenues of sound. This baby provides three separate channels to play around with -- clean, rhythm, and lead channels. Your clean offers that warm color you'd expect from an all-tube head. Your rhythm breaks up your signal a little, providing nice percussive crunches, and your lead channel brings in a searing distortion. The tones achieved through this head have the range, sustain, and definition for lower-ranged instruments -- like seven-string guitars or detuned guitars -- as well.

Mad Controls for Tone Freaks

Along the front panel of your IRT Studio head are two rows of nicely laid out controls. You have clean volume, footswitchable pre boost, rhythm gain, lead gain, rhythm volume, lead volume, dynamics, tone, and reverb controls. Three-band EQ controls with push/pull EQ shift are also at your finger tips. Your clean and rhythm channels share the top row and your lead has its own EQ controls row below it.

Internal Dummy Load and Speaker-emulated Record Out

To keep your signal truly silent, your IRT Studio head harnesses an internal dummy load which, unlike most tube heads, allows you to bypass the implementation of an external speaker cab. Immediately after the output section is a high integrity speaker-emulated record out which allows you to project that all-tube tone into your DAW, a PA system -- or both -- for either recording sessions or live shows.

- Two 1/4" input jacks -- one at 1 watt, the other at 15 watts

Product Description

The Laney Ironheart IRT Studio Guitar Amplifier Head features the same great IRONHEART tones as the bigger heads but in a low wattage studio package with some neat features added. Most agree that they would love to record in a situation where making a lot of noise was not a problem but in most cases this is not always an option. The IRONHEART IRT-STUDIO has features designed specifically to allow you to get a great tone whether you are recording in the studio or recording live.

USB Connectivity -- No Latency

The IRT-STUDIO features a USB Audio I/O and a RE-AMP send jack. The USB supplies both a dry signal and the processed signal -- split left and right to your DAW -- directly into either your PC/MAC or iPAD, which means that you can alter the guitar tone of your original recording without having to re-track anything!

Internal Dummy Load

The IRT-STUDIO has an internal dummy load, so unlike a conventional tube loaded amp, you don't need to connect an external speaker. This gives you truly silent recording!

Silent and Emulated Record Out

The IRT-STUDIO also houses a high quality speaker-emulated record out immediately after the output section which means it delivers all valve tone to your DAW or PA or both at the same time for recording your live shows.
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. "An amazing amp!!"
Overall: It has been about a month since I purchased this amp. I am very satisfied with this amp. I don't usually record, so I just use it as a practice amp. But it can easily be a good live amp as well. Don't let 15w fool you. IT IS LOUD!! Especially if you use 4x12 cab. I usually play with my headphones since I have an infant at home. The sound you get through headphone is amazing as well. A lot of people say that the boost control is useless, but I find it quite useful actually. As long as I don't go beyond 5. If you watch a youtube demo done by Ola Englund (IRT120 I believe), he uses it and gets a great tone. I know the recording is not a raw recording, but I tried setting my amp the same as he did and got a great result as well. Very good strong construction for the money. It is Chinese made, but still a very good quality except for the pedal. When I press the clean ch. button, sometimes it makes popping sound. not always, but still kinda annoying. But I don't use clean ch. much, and I did buy it for the great dirty ch. so doesn't matter. This is a one great amp in my opinion. I know there are better amps out there, but what you get for the money you really can't beat IRT studio.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ironheart kills it, but needs a little help from its friends...."
Overall: I bought this head to add to my studio rig. I was using an EVH 5150 III 50w with a load box and cab sims for amazing direct in sounds, I decided to get this to replace the EVH because I didn't own the EVH =\. At first I was not blown away with the sounds I was getting but after hitting it with an EQ, Keeley comp, and a gate the thing sounded wonderful! I was getting tones that could compare to the EVH sound. A big selling point with the built in load box.I played this through a Mesa 4x12 with my pedal chain at the 1w and 15w, sounds great. I would like to get the 60w version in the future. Overall: I would recommend throwing an couple nice pedals in front of it to get the super smooth and raw KSE tone. I'm not a big fan of the built in pre boost. I feel that it only sounds good on the clean channel. I give the clean channel w/ compression 5/5 stars.
