I've owned many amps over the years... Mesa, Fender, Peavey, and many others. Some 'iconic' (such as an old 'block logo' 5150) and others hardly known. This is my favorite of all I've owned. The only minor 'shortcomings' I'd note are: 1) shared EQ, although, this amp sounds so good at any setting, it really isn't an issue; and 2) the reverb isn't the best I've ever heard. It's not bad, but not as good as what I had on my Mesas or Fenders. Also, Laney has a very limited presence in the US. So it's not like you can just drive to your local Laney dealer and drop it off if you ever should need warranty service (though I don't think you ever will). You'll have to pack it up and send it to a 3rd party, which kind of sucks. But I'm not even worrying about that. By the way, at 5 watts parallel single-ended Class A, let me assure you this amp is LOUD and can absolutely hang with a drummer in a 4-piece rock band. Headroom will be limited, but the tone is beautiful.
Long time player... occasionally play in band... mostly hobbyist.
Guitar oriented rock: Zeppelin, Stones, Cake, Social D, Clash, Black Crowes and lots more.
