Hi guys,

As some of you may know I have recently been on a quest for a new amp. I had a £500 budget and needed an amp with great cleans and awesome drive tones. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you my finding! Enjoy! £300 of pure used win!



Laney VH100R!!!











Groovy dust cover

My god, this amp is amazing! The guy who owned it dropped it off with me at around 7:00. He was an awesome guy. He explained everything about the amp to me and let me try it out for about 20 mins before buying it, even though he came down from stockport, about 200 miles from me!

The first thing I tried was the clean channel and immediately it was the clean sound I always wanted! Very bright and articulate sounding. Very precise. It sounds amazing! Maybe nearly as good as Fender Cleans! Definately the best cleans I've heard from a high gain amp.

After playing that for a while, I tried the gain channel and by god this amp packs a punch! Very tight bass, and alot of it! After messing with the EQ for a while I managed to get a nearly perfect Metallica tone from the Black album which is the sound I wanted to get. I also dialled in a good Master of Puppets sound. The amp is voiced on a british type tone and you can tell it is. I cranked the amp to about 6 or 7 on the volume and it sounded amazing! Even at really high volumes the clean and distorted channel still sound very clear and every string rings out and notes are clearly defined.

All I can say is, I love this amp!

damn, that's a nice score right there.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I may have to go on a Laney binge soon, I mean, the price they go for here in the UK is disgustingly cheap, They're well priced enough new as it is, but they al seem to go for around 40% of their new price used which is just daylight robbery.

Thanks guys! Played it a bit more today. Sounds immense! You can play it at very low volumes but it doesn't sound very good but once you get it past 2 or 3, it's just a beast!

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.

HNAD! You should do some tone clips


I would, but I have no recording equipment other than a crappy video camera

Couldn't stop playing it today it sounded so good! It's basically the sound I have been looking for. Very clear sound, good tight bass, amazing clean sound.

Thanks alot to anyone who recommended me this amp and helped me decide to go for it (Dave_MC, Ippon, coolstoryangus, SwampAshSpecial, beckyjc, Cathbard and others!)

HNAD!

A really cool band that I saw named Intronaut uses the VH100R and you can definitely get a heavy tone out of those amps. Very nice!


I love Intronaut...now that you mention it, the tones coming out of my GH50L are pretty close.

HNAD TS, I love my Laney and you appear to love yours.
