I think you guys know what these are like, but i'll do a little review..

So the DHL guy unloads his van, brings out a MASSIVE box with laney on the side, WIN!
On first thoughts from opening the box all i could say was it looked amazing, used from ebay, but it was only 3 months old and had the receipt enclosed
I only paid a fraction of what its worth new, as it ended at a ridiculous time in the morning when noone was on ebay, except the troll that i am, aha.
OH! and it's had it's speaker upgraded to a V30, extra win! it sounds lovely.

The clean channel:
If i'd mark it out of 10 it would be 9.5/10 easy, absolutely love this, i thought i was destined to get a HRD, but i'm so pleased i got this.
It has the jangly cleans like an AC30 and with the bright switch on it sounds fender'ish...
The best bit is when i cranked it to about 3 o'clock it still was clean and sounding lovely..

The drive channel:
Ok its nothing like my old blackstar which i sold, but it's a different amp, it has a lovely rich british over drive tone, which was exactly what i was looking for..
The 'tone' knob on the EQ affects the drive alot, in a good way
Obviously i'd need some pedal to get into 'TEH METALZ' if i ever strayed into that environment..

Overall i love it and i can't see me changing this for a long time... the speaker is a big plus to the overall tone for me..

Now ya just need to give it a lovely speaker swap and perhaps some new tubes and it'll sound even more fantabulous!
