Ok basically on the UK version of Craiglist there is a Laney LC30 for sale............................for only £50 this is really suprising since I searched it and its going for over £420 new.

People say that 30watts is way loud, does this mean it is too loud to use at bedroom levels or is it just too loud to push the tubes into overdrive?
I.e. could I get it and just use an overdrive pedal to get overdriven tones?

I am kinda thinking of getting it and then keeping it in case I ever form a band or need it to jam with a drummer.

Or buy it and sell it on, do you think this would be easy and would I make money?


Thanks, hope this thread gets more replies than my other one (completely different subject)

Buy it anyway before someone else on here does :P

You can have as many watts as you want, so long as you have volume control it doesn't matter. You can just turn it down in your room, crank it up with drummers

It could either be horribly broken, or the guy is an absolute loon. IMHO, I would DEFINITELY try before you buy on this one. And yes, if it isn't broken you could get some easy coin on this, though I don't know why you would sell it.

buy it. make sure it isnt broken. jump on it.
dont take any guff from these bastards man

30 watts from a tube amp can be quite loud indeed.

You can easily get preamp overdrive but in order to push the powertubes into overdrive you have to crank the amp.

If that is your goal then either look to get a power attenuator or for possibly a 15 watt tube amp.

jump on that deal. i have a marshall tube 30 watt and while it does sound alot better at higher volumes it still sounds great as a practice amp

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

Ok on the ad it says that it is in full working order, I've sent him an email but he hasn't replied yet.

The uk version of craiglist is called gumtree.

agreed, that's in "too good to be true" territory. Likely to be a gip of some kind, unless you're just really lucky.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Which city of gumtree is it in? Sounds like a deal you should take up to me.

We have Gumtree and Craigslist here, but CL is crap for some reason. Probably cos it looks like I designed it - we like shiny stuff over here!

Any way - jump on it if it works. The LC series are master volume, and sound pretty nice even when running quite quiet.

we have CL?

i love gumtree

It says on the ad that it is in full working order and he says hes free all day tomorrow for viewings but he also says that there been a lot of interest in it so the best price will get it.

Not sure how much I'm willing to pay, but obviously if I do go and view it then I will try it out.
