Laney GH30R Guitar Amplifier Head (30 Watts)

Amp tweakers delight! The Laney GH30R is a 30-watt tube amplifier head that features switchable cab emulation with preamp and power amp distortion blending.
The Laney GH30R head gives something back to the modern guitar player that for too many years has been overlooked. In a world obsessed by pre-amp distortion, the dark art of power amp distortion has been lost – until now. The GH30R delivers transparent, versatile classic rock tones with the ability to blend in the dynamic characteristic of pre-amp distortion and power amp distortion right there at your fingertips. Both channels on the GH30R produce the same tonal characteristic but how you set them up give you the subtle difference that tone hounds dream about. This is the ‘amp tweakers’ delight! Whether its funk or melodic rock, whether you’re a hybrid picker or a shredder, the GH30R delivers outstanding, dynamic, complex, harmonically rich controllable tone.

On-Board Reverb

On-board studio quality reverb. Reverb gives you a sense of the space that you are in. A dry guitar signal can sound a little dull. Adding the right about of reverb provides the guitar signal with ambience and brings it to life.


The XLR-DI out allows you to connect your amplifier to a PA system or recording interface, without the need for micing. It is fully balanced and features a level switch for -30dB (PA/Desk level) or +4dB (Line level) for driving powered cabinets directly. The XLR-DI out also features a ground lift switch is also provided for lowest noise performance. Unlike most other XLR-DI out, the Laney fitted XLR-DI out is post the output section of the amp.

Love the sound of this amp! This is the loudest 30watt amp I ever heard. The way Laney engineers setup the Master tone/output controls give you much more flexibility than all the other amps in this class. The handles make it much easier to carrie also. Where i purchased from (ZZOUNDS) also made it a great buying experience. I would highly recommend this amp amateur or pro.. Six out of five stars for Laney and zZounds!
