    The reason you don't need an overdrive to boost it might be because it already has one, with the built in boost.

    I know it has the boost function, but I wasn't using it... It is just a really tight sounding amp which I love

    I've heard reports that the boost function adds mud, but I have yet to play through one of these. Depends on how the boost is EQ'd, if it's just a flat gain boost that would be bad, IMO..

    I tried out the combo today - I'm pretty impressed! Considering getting this to replace my 6505+ 112.

    Are there any other heads/cabs in this price range that i should consider? Looking at about £750 (60W head and 2x12 cab)

    is this supposed to be all tube? how is the price so low? apparently you can get vh100r sounds from this as well as all the extra stuff theyve added. doesnt seem right to me. either way, as long as it sounds good and performs well. but, im def not trying to just get another blackstar lol.

    Laney just isn't an expensive company. They're one of those few "big" gear companies that don't charge extra just because they're a "Legendary" company. :lol:

    I'm not saying they aren't legendary, because they (along with Marshall) are the companies that paved the way for modern high gain amps. They're just more "humble" then Marshall. :p

    I was really on the fence about getting a Laney GH50L, since I heard they can get massive gain, but with very flubby low end, but maybe when I get the dough, I'll nab the 60W IH. :D

    thats for sure on the humbleness. but it still kind of doesnt make sense. the vh100r is a really kickass amp. IMO, one of the best out there. they go for $1500~ it seems like theyve added A TON of features including an additional channel/gain voicing, wattage switch, built in boost, etc etc etc. this is going for 900~. i was thinking about the 60 myself, if it comes down to it.

    Hmm... Thats true about the VH100R. I guess they wanted to price it cheaper because the price of tube amps are going down.

    I just know if I ever got the budget for a tube amp, the Ironheart would be my first. :lol:

    It's made in China(like Jet City, 6505+112, etc), that's why it's cheaper.. :lol:

    Really? :scratch:

    Huh... never knew that. I thought it would be built in the UK like the other Laneys. :shrug:

    The parts are from China and the amps are assembled in the UK... I believe :)



    But yes, if these Ironhearts are remotely like the VH100R with these new features... :bowdown:

    I believe the UK guys might install tubes and stick the logos on, but at that price point I wouldn't count on anything else. :lol:

    Having owned a GH50L for many years in the past, I hope these are more modern sounding than the VH/GH series.. Which is why I bought from a retailer with an excellent return policy. :lol:
