Laney CUB-HEAD Guitar Amplifier Head (15 Watts)

No longer available at zZounds
Access great British valve tone with this low-wattage amp head. It features a top mounted control panel with knobs for gain, treble, middle, bass, and more.

The Laney CUB-HEAD finally gives players access to great British valve tone like never before. The retro styled Laney CUB-HEAD features a top mounted control panel consisting of the following; gain, treble, middle, bass, volume, tone and reverb. Dialling in a great valve tone is simple - select your input - 15 W or <1 W : more on these controls in a moment, dial in your tone, add a taste of high quality reverb and away you go.

The Laney CUB-HEAD houses 3 x ECC83's in its preamp and 2 x EL84's in the power amp section, all hand selected to give the best valve tone possible. Lets go back for a moment and look at the inputs on the Laney CUB-HEAD. The Laney CUB-HEAD has two input options, one giving you 15W RMS of valve tone, the other giving you a huge valve sound, but cutting the output down to .75 of a Watt. .75 of a Watt might not sound like much, but it allows you to drive the output section really hard and generate some very pleasing power amp compression and pleasing break up giving you that holy grail of guitar tone!

The rear panel of the Laney CUB-HEAD houses two speaker out sockets in 8 & 16 Ohm options, a footswitch socket for switching the reverb and an effects loop consisting of a Send/Line out socket and a return socket. The Laney CUB-HEAD can be paired with any Laney cabinet but is ideally suited to the CUB CAB.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
With the gain dialed down, tons of clean headroom with no breakup, even when dimed. Takes pedals extremely well. Good crunch available with the gain at 6-8. Very Marshall-esque.
