Hey guys,

So a while ago some peeps recommended me to get a Laney VH100R second hand. Due to some developements I have a bigger budget and can buy new up until around 1000 € (roughly 1100$)

So is the Laney GH100R (and GH50R) the successor to the VH100?
Or is the VH100 an entirely different beast when it comes to tone, tubes and all that bajizzle?

I've done some research myself but it never hurts to get a second opinion before dropping a lot of money on something. This will help me decide whether to get a VH or a GH.

Cheers!

Dex

far as i'm aware the GHes are basically the VH100R's dirty channel. Or to put it another way, the VH100R without a clean channel.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

^I think he means the GHR range, which are new. The GH and VH have benn discontinued I believe.

Features and controls are different on the GHR. It's got a DI-out with speaker sim and something along the lines of VVR I think. I doesn't have the independant EQs like the VH, and the loop options are less extensive. Judging from demos, it's also got less gain.

The amp is probably alright, but I'd wager some shops will still have some VH amps, too. It comes down to what features you want (and which sound you like better).

wow i'm way out of the loop I didn't even realise they had a new amp on the way.

thomas.decort: Disregard what I said above, obviously.
