About the Laney CUB12 amp:
Straight ahead vintage tone of the Laney CUB12 in a small package with simple controls.
The Laney CUB12 houses a 12″ driver, giving it an increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the preamp it’s clear that the Laney CUB12 packs more into the amp than its smaller siblings. The Laney Cub 12 features Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume, Tone and Reverb controls. The output section of the Laney CUB 12 is based around a pair of EL84 tubes giving it a more scooped tone than its smaller counterparts. Think smooth rich overdrive with bags of gain.
The Laney CUB12 features two input sockets one labelled 15W the other labelled less than one watt. Plug into the “less than one watt” and the Laney CUB12 delivers great tube tone at a whisper. The less-than-one-watt option on the Laney CUB12 allows you to drive the power amp section really hard allowing you to really access the “dark art” tone of power amp distortion.
Designed and engineered in Great Britain, the amp delivers 15 watts power and tone via a pair of EL84 power tubes. In addition, a less than 1-watt power option can be used, giving the same power tube tone at lower volume levels. Using 3 x ECC83 pre-amp tubes the CUB12R goes from warm cleans to rich crunch.
Features of the Laney CUB 12:
- Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume and Tone controls.
- FX loop.
- 3 x ECC83 preamp tubes and 2 x EL84 power tubes. One of the preamp valves should be balanced for the V3 position.
