Product Description

The Laney Cub 12R features great straight ahead vintage valve tone with a splash of high quality reverb. The Cub 12R houses a HH 12 inch driver and pushes out up to 15 watts RMS of pure vintage valve tone, we say up to 15 watts RMS as it has the option of running at significantly less output but more on that in a moment.

Lets take a look at the preamp, this consists of the following controls from right to left - gain, treble, middle, bass, volume, tone and finally reverb.

The Cub 12R's valve complement consists of 3 x ECC83 valves in the preamp giving you the ability to dial in plenty of gain, and the output section consists of 2 x EL84 output valves, which give you that classic British tonality to the amp when they are pushed hard. The Cub 12R features a nifty output trick - if you look at the front panel you'll notice two input sockets, one labelled 15W, the other labelled <1W. If you plug into the 15W socket you get the full power of the amp, 15 Watts of wonderfully warm valve tone. Plug into the <1W and you get .75 of a Watt output. This allows you to drive the amplifier as hard as you like, giving you masses of power amp compression and a pleasing break up for that elusive DARK ART tone.

The Cub 12R's rear panel features everything you'll need, additional speaker outs with both 8 and 16 Ohm options, a footswitch socket for switching the reverb and an effects loop. The Cub 12R offers a welcome addition to the Laney tube amp range giving everyone the opportunity to experience the sound and feel of a good quality tube amp.

Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
Great Amp - definitely recommend
Your general opinion of this product.
I am very pleased with this purchase. The amp is versatile and can go clean, bluesy or metallic easily. I like the <1W, 15W input choices, which allow me to drive the amp, but not bring the police to my doorstep.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The quality looks good, and I like the feel of the knobs and the way that they are precise, but move fluidly.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The controls are easy to get to and are arranged in such a way that I don't need to read them to know what I am adjusting. There is a logical order to them.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is easily varied, and can grind, snap, whine, thump or sing. Celestion speakers are always a plus in this area. They produce great sounds.
How was the action out of the box?
Nothing has been required yet regarding the amps out of the box functionality. Works great.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Looks good. I originally didn't like the non-square speaker opening, but now I am thinking that it is distinctive.
How has it stood up over time?
I have had the amp a month. I have played a couple of hours most of those days and have had no issues and haven't found any shortcomings. So far I am feeling like I got quite a deal.
