Overview

The CUB12R houses a 12" driver, giving it an increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the preamp it's clear that the CUB12R packs more into the amp than it's smaller siblings. It features Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume, Tone and Reverb controls. The output section of the CUB12R is based around a pair of EL84 tubes giving it a more scooped tone than it's smaller counterparts. Think smooth rich overdrive with bags of gain.

The CUB12R features two input sockets one-labeled 15W the other labeled less than one watt. Plug into the "less than one watt" and you get your great tube tone at a whisper. The less-than-one-watt option allows you to drive the power amp section really hard allowing you to really access the "dark art" tone of power amp distortion.

The CUB12R is a member of the CUB range which offers everyone the opportunity to experience the sound and feel of a good quality tube amp at what is an amazing price.

Features
  • Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume and Tone controls
  • FS1 footswitch (Not Included)
  • FX loop
  • Reverb
  • Two EL84 tubes
  • Three ECC83 tubes

    Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Nice rich tones for such a small amp. The 1w input is nice for living in an apartment! The reverb is not great but a pedal can really help. Seems to respond well to both clean and distortion. Tone control as well as bass/mid/treble is nice.

      Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I needed an amp for home use, I have very little space and I didn't want too many pedals all over the floor. The compact design of the CUB12R with built in reverb, gain, tone, eq and attenuation is perfect! I have owned other small (5watt and under) valve amps, but they just could not deliver the "warmth" you expect through their tiny 8" speakers. The CUB12R (15watts/12"speaker) however does it brilliantly, the 1watt channel is externally well geared to deliver gain at reasonable levels.
      The amp is fine (great even) in small gig settings, but I imagine headroom would become an issue fairly easily as the amp is designed to break up.

        Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        This is top quality at a nice price. There simply is nothing but good to say about this amp. I had a friend try it out at a small gig himself who has been playing the northeast for 45 years and he loved it as well. It has great valve sound for Blues or Rock. It may not be the best for Metal.

          Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I spent quite some time researching small tube amps that would provide warmth and richness with a touch of edginess. My local dealer recommended the Laney Cub12R and I am so happy he did. It took a little while to get but the wait was worth it.

          Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          Was lucky enough to be in-store while this amp was being put through its paces by advanced local player. Cleans just crystal, grit added in a linear manner. Just a sweet sounding amp that's easy to move about. Reverb is particularly sweet and very well moderated by switch. Amp itself has a subjective feeling of quality that just begs to be played. A very welcome addition to my family of tube amps.

          Comments about Laney CUB-12R 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          There are many great things to say about this amp. Notes bloom nicely providing all the nuances of your playing to pop out from your fingers. It responds well to both humbuckers and single coil pickups. It is lightweight and portable. The speaker seems to hold up well with the amp cranked.At least short term. However the lack of a Pentode Triode Switch as found on other makers amps makes this amp a bit of a bummer. However, weight and size compensate nicely in the decision making process. I honestly feel if it were priced at 25% less I would have given it 5 stars.
