Great recording/practice amp
By: Chris Lund from Mountlake Terrace
Your general opinion of this product.
The Laney IRT Studio has amazing tone, both clean and high gain, and is perfect for recording or practice.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Just got it, but can't see any issues coming up. Very strong construction and the rack ears fit perfectly.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
All controls are smooth and void of issues.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Again, this is made for metal and the tone is perfect. The EQ pull-knobs really allow you to dial in a tone that suits you. Additionally, the digital reverb is very nice and sounds on par with very good stomp box varieties.
How was the action out of the box?
I'll say the "action" is the footswitch here, and it's nice. 4 buttons, lead and clean, reverb and boost. Easy to use and again, built well.
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
As a fixture in my studio for years to come, this unit will occupy my favorite spot in my rack unit.
