The Laney Cub 12r is rediculously good value for money. A great sounding tube amp that is amazingly versatile. Plenty of gain on tap but cleans up wonderfully with the guitars volume control.
The CUB12R houses a 12″ driver, giving it an increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the preamp it’s clear that the CUB12R packs more into the amp than it’s smaller siblings. It features Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume, Tone and Reverb controls. The output section of the CUB12R is based around a pair of EL84 tubes giving it a more scooped tone than it’s smaller counterparts. Think smooth rich overdrive with bags of gain.
The CUB12R features two input sockets one-labeled 15W the other labeled less than one watt. Plug into the “less than one watt” and you get your great tube tone at a whisper. The less-than-one-watt option allows you to drive the power amp section really hard allowing you to really access the “dark art” tone of power amp distortion.
The CUB12R is a member of the CUB range which offers everyone the opportunity to experience the sound and feel of a good quality tube amp at what is an amazing price.
