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!

- Tony Iommi uses Laney Amps so I would guess they are pretty good.
The amp is really heavy for its size, but it's mainly because it is very resistant. The thick wood is covered by the leather finish (I suppose it is synthetic), also the handle is made of leather and wont break. The controls are on top so its easier to change your settings ant also save space. The amp is not distorted even if you max out the volume when playing on clean. The distortion can get really heavy but if you're playing metal you may want to get external distortions.
