The Laney CUB12R features great straight ahead vintage valve tone with a splash of high quality reverb. The Laney CUB12R houses a HH 12 inch driver and pushes out up to 15 watts RMS of pure vintage valve tone.
Let's take a look at the preamp, this consists of the following controls from right to left - gain, treble, middle, bass, volume, tone and finally reverb.
The Laney CUB12R's valve complement consists of 3 x ECC83 valves in the preamp giving you the ability to dial in plenty of gain, and the output section consists of 2 x EL84 output valves, which give you that classic British tonality to the amp when they are pushed hard. The Laney CUB12R features a nifty output trick - if you look at the front panel you'll notice two input sockets, one labeled 15W, the other labeled <1W. If you plug into the 15W socket you get the full power of the amp, 15 Watts of wonderfully warm valve tone. Plug into the <1W and you get .75 of a Watt output. This allows you to drive the amplifier as hard as you like, giving you masses of power amp compression and a pleasing break up for that elusive DARK ART tone.
The Laney CUB12R's rear panel features everything you'll need, additional speaker outs with both 8 & 16 Ohm options, a footswitch socket for switching the reverb and an effects loop. The Laney CUB12R offers a welcome addition to the Laney tube amp range giving everyone the opportunity to experience the sound and feel of a good quality tube amp.
