Laney VC 30-212 Class A – all valve Electric Guitar Amplifier Combo
It’s a cold-hearted guitarist who’s hair doesn’t go up on the back of their neck when they play a power chord on their favourite axe plugged into a Laney VC30212 Class A combo for the very first time…a slice of sonic heaven. Vintage in attitude but packed with warmth, tone and enough gain to delight the most hardened Class A purist, the Laney VC30-212 covers vintage guitar tones with ease and absolutely creams the tones required for contemporary playing.
Britain is famous for its 30 watt Class A Guitar Amplifiers and although the VC30 has been hand built in the Far East, it has been built to the same high standard as the VC30s that had previously been built in the UK. Guitarists the World over are proclaiming the Laney VC30-212 the rightful heir to the throne.
If you are looking for pure, expressive, classic tone, you need to look no further than the Laney VC30-212. Running through a pair of 12″ Custom designed 35 watt drivers, the VC30-212 generates very little crossover distortion because it runs in pure class A mode. That unmistakable Class A sound and feel is there in spades in this killer amplifier.
The Laney VC30-212 is a very dynamic amp and its gain can be easily controlled by the pressure of your pick on the strings. Additionally, there are a myriad of tones to be found between one and ten on your guitar’s volume knob. From a chiming bright clean sound to the vintage caress of the creamy overdrive, whether its single coils or humbuckers…the VC30 delivers.
The VC’s clean channel is immediately impressive and wonderfully expressive, living up to its name and remaining clean almost all the way to the maximum volume, when it begins to break up in the perfectly pleasant way you only get from pushing an EL84…hard. Drive-wise the Laney VC30-212 has its roots in the bluesy side of things, but push the front end of the amp a little harder with a pedal and the gain really sings.
THAT SAME GREAT LANEY SOUND
The world is hungry for quality products that deliver on every level…but at lower prices! The only way that is possible without cutting corners is to build off-shore. The Laney VC30-212 has been hand made in China to the exact same specifications as the previous English made series and some might even argue that the quality control is actually higher. What cannot be argued is the tone…glorious class A harmonically rich valve powered tone!
The Laney VC30-212 is housed in a very ‘British looking’ and specifically, a very ‘Laney’ Black Basket Weave Vinyl covering, with a very classy black and grey speaker grille cloth accentuated with white piping. Rugged 100% leather handles and chrome finished corners complete the very purposeful, yet understated appearance.
Simple, logical and intuitive – just as the best guitar amplifiers should be.
