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!

- No need to say that for metal it sounds better than any other in this range!
I have this amp about one year and I mostly agree with what is said in the review. It's the beginner's best choice - small enough for home practice, but still with enough power to play with band, reliable, endurable. The only thing I didn't like was the drive channel. And by the way, I threw mine at the floor. Still works, like... not a scratch, if anything i think there might be LESS feedback than before. (I have a very short temper, got angry, and threw it at a concrete floor). Its a good amp, recommend it. \m/
