It cuts, it crushes, it slices and dices........even the reverb sounds smooth and full without causing the "amp in a cavern" effect.
I'll let you know if I can find something it doesn't do. Hell, it can even be dark if you dial it in that way, no brittle icepick if you have the treble over 5
Wow, instant Iced Earth... Never knew you'd get that from a Laney.
Could be all the Alive in Athens I was listening to all last night...
Larry - RR + NE = Laney...
THE LETTERS, MASON! WHAT DO THEY MEAN!?!?!
Joking aside, it sounds amazing, and you have awesome taste in live albums.
Looks so cool, can't wait to try it. I have a GH50L that I've used for years with a strat it rocks, but doesn't handle my 7 so well. Would be interesting to see how much tighter the Ironheart really is.
Wow. Didn't know it could handle metal so well. Jack Thammarat was more of a rock player so I didn't have a clue it's that versatile.
I used to boost my GH50L with a tubescreamer(or similar), and add lows in the loop. None of that is needed with the Ironheart. I'm very impressed with it.
Could someone please post a review on the HH drivers in the IRT cabs and/ or the cabs themselves? I'm debating whether going 4x12 Laney or 2x12 Vader. I have the IRT120 and looking for a nice, well rounded tone because I have projects that range from Black Dahlia Murder to 1349 to Opeth tones (all separate projects) and I'm really looking for some drivers that can deliver all these different tones.
^Not sure about which drivers, but check out Emperor cabs. I use my VH100R through an Emperor 2x12 with Weber Ceramic 1265 speakers and it's really versatile. They're based in Chicago, too.
@Toshiro Thanks for the demos! That thing sounds (and looks) really killer.
thank you so very much good sir! im checking that shit out as soon as their site is back from maintenance.
Impressive how drastically my feelings towards Laney changed lately..from a genuine antipathy ( i HATE their site and find the product's names to be pretty silly and confusing) to a MUST-HAVE-ONE
just when I was set on a 6505 I see this beauty...can any owners comment on how good it sounds when using high gain tones with the built in attenuator? that is a major selling point for me.
Both those vids above have the "Watts" control on noon. I wouldn't squish it too much though, with the knob turned all the way down the amp loses something. Still, it's actually controllable, unlike some other amps.
I can see that. I would imagine that the best way to use it would be to set the post-volume to a level where the amp "opens up", and then use the wattage control to set the volume. As you say, the extra headroom found with higher watts may be desired with high gain tones.
Just read on the Laney website that KSE have signed an endorsement deal with Laney and both Adam and Joel will be using Ironhearts live and in studio. Laney News » Killswitch Engage Join The Laney Family Of Endorsees
Personally I think this is pretty cool and I hope it gives the company a boost as the Ironhearts a great amp and Laney make great stuff anyway but apart from the legend that is Tony Iommi I'd struggle to name any of their endorsees.
Yup. I'm getting this amp now.
wowowow! my friends are going to nut themselves. especially the dude who owns a VH100r, LOL
FS: Laney Ironheart 60, barely used. j/k
