Lyndon Laney, founder of the company, was interested in electronics and tubes, and needed amplification to gig at night while playing bass guitar in Band of Joy. He couldn’t just buy guitar amplifier online as online stores didn’t exist, and he was a little short of cash - so he had to build them instead. Used by such stars as Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, Randy Rhoads, and Ace Frehley, you’ll be in good company if you’re using a Laney. If you buy musical instruments online, you’ll appreciate the tone and quality of Laney, just like Joe Satriani does. Buy Laney amplifiers online from Musikshack rather than trying to build your own!
