The Laney Cub 8 is a brand new, all tube guitar amp with its roots fairly and squarely back in the very beginning of tube amp production. The design ethos behind the Cub amps is 'Small is Beautiful!' There are plenty of situations when small is king and having an amplifier like the Cub 8 allows you to get 'THAT' vintage sound.
The Cub 8 features a classic single-ended Class A design, and is loaded with a single ECC83 in the pre amp section and a single 6V6GT in the output section generating 5 watts RMS of vintage tube tone.
The Cub 8's control panel is simplicity personified - a tone control, a volume control, Hi and LO input and that's your lot. The CUB 8 is fitted with a custom selected driver – picked to produce the best tone available from the unit and is finished in a retro styled brown and tan cosmetic. Giving it a very smart, attractive appearance.
Using a Cub 8 is straightforward, plug in, dial in your tone and wind the volume up a little and the 6V6GT's respond in a bright, bouncy and brilliant fashion. Drive the output section harder and the increased 2nd and 3rd order harmonics give the tone a pronounced bottom end and a lovely lower mid.
