Overview

The Laney Ironheart IRT60H is a thoroughly modern tube head capable of full on metal tones but offers you far more than other metal oriented amps. It's loaded with a pair of premium TAD 6L6 loaded tubes. The feature packed preamp is laid out logically and features three distinct channels (Clean, Rhythm and Lead). Each channel features passive 3-band EQ with push pull options for Deep, mid shift and treble shift which allows you to dial in the exact tone you are after. The master section features an overall Dynamics control which allows you to vary the interaction of the amp the drivers. Depending on the volume, an overall Tone control, a Laney custom Digital Reverb and a Watts feature allow you to dial the out put of the amp back to a whisper without destroying your tone.

One of the coolest features of the IRT60H is a switchable Pre-Boost facility which functions just like kicking in your favorite boost pedal in front of your amp. This gives your playing more dynamics and feel. The rear panel of the unit features everything you need to connect your outboard gear, a variable level FX loop, a variety of extension speaker sockets and the supplied FS4-IRT footswitch connection socket. You'll also find the switch that gives you the ability to change the output tubes from the factory should you like. Finished in tough black basket weave Tolex with matching front fret and brooding red glow, it looks as good as it sounds.

  • Footswitchable Pre Boost
  • Three channels: Clean, Rhythm and Lead

  • FSR-IRT standard footswitch
  • Variable FX loop

Comments about Laney IRT60H 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

A lot of reviews say that this amp is a Swiss army knife - this is not the case in my experience. If you play nothing but metal this amp is great, it is loud and has more than enough gain.

If you dial back the gain on the dirty channel the amp sounds lifeless and lacks definition. The clean channel also sounds dull and with way too much low end giving the amp the "blanket over the speakers" effect. The clean channel does sound ok with the built in boost function engaged but nothing spectacular. It does not take pedals well - especially dirt pedals. If you rely on pedals for your tone do not buy this amp.

The extra features are not needed and I find the led lights tacky (someone has told me that they are easy to turn off - I just have never got around to it). Keep the watts function on full and dial back the volume using the channel volume - using the watts knob to control volume will generate an unappealing fizzy compressed sound the more you dial it back.

Really not impressed. Bought it based on good reviews and my experience with my other Laney amp (LH50 now discontinued but its great). If you play balls to the wall metal and don't use anything but a boosted dirt channel you will be impressed.

    Comments about Laney IRT60H 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    So...one day my 100w head dies...hopelessly. In need to replace, I wanted a head that would have a nice clean on that channel designation. I searched. Never finding exactly what I had in mind. In desperation, I ordered the Laney Ironheart 60w (100 watts is just plain crazy). Of course when I began to really investigate this particular amp, I realized it was mainly voiced for metal. Well at this point I thought I had made a mistake. Within a few days the amp was at my doorstep. Ok...I'll give it a go. From the point I un-boxed it I had a great feeling about it. You know...a gut feeling. Well, I plugged in and was totally wowed! The clean was amazing with plenty of head room if you're not playing in a stadium. Then I tried the drive channels and was blown away at how good they sounded. In fact, it is easy to forget you own dirt pedals to accomplish the same. Another big bonus is that you can tame this amp to bedroom levels and keep your tones...and neighbors. Bottom line...I love this amp and glad I made the "mistake" of purchasing it.

        Comments about Laney IRT60H 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        Like many guitar types i have played and owned many different amps from Peavey (JSX, Satriani model) to Mesa Boogie (SOB, Dual Rec) to Marshall (TSL, DSL, JVM combo, and 800's) to some older rack gear, to modeling am even some boutique types that i tried out, and this amp is holding its own with all of them and im keeping this one!

        The amp has 3 channels (Clean Crunch, Lead) and delivers great tone in each channel, built in reverb (I use it sparingly but it sounds great) a built in attenuator that actually works for lower house playing. (Yes it really works!!) It has a easy bias switch on the back to go from 6L6 to EL34s i want to try this out soon. The amp also has a dynamics knob (makes the amp tighter or breath more) sorta like compression, i like my amp to breath and bloom a little.. Tone is subjective but i LOVE the tone im hearing after all these years of playing (playing 24 years) it just feels great when i play and it responds to you picking, slapping strings and volume knob, great response to playing it. No mud, no noise, nothing just clarity and warm tube tone at any volume

        I have played for 24 years and currently play in a cover band playing things from 70s (Zep, Deep purple, acdc) to 90s and modern (Foo fighters, Lenny Kravitz, Tool, modest mouse, STP) and it covers all the music with ease.... want a old school rock sound? its there, a clean jazzy sound? its there - modern metal? its there, and it does it well,.I cant say how much i love playing the amp and the interaction i have with the head, my cabinet and the guitar with me, it is a sweet amp and i truly cant say anough good things about the amp. I have owned the 60 watter for 9 months and its been a fixture on my cabinets

        I Highly highly recommend this amp for anyone looking at a amp that sounds awesome, has great useful features and slays/sounds great in the house, in the studio or on the stage. Laney TRULY hit a home run with this amp, go try one for yourself i cant recommend this amp enough

        Jack of all trades, and master of all

        Comments about Laney IRT60H 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I purchased this head recently, after getting a used Laney AOR 50 that I had to return due to tube issues. The tl;dr, this head is a beast. All three channels are very usable, and I have yet to get a bad tone out of any of them. I'm running it with the stock 6L6's, but plan on switching them out to EL34's, and I'm currently using a '03 Epi LP Custom loaded with SD '59's, and a Peavey 412 with Sheffields. Clean channel: I had previously used a Peavey Delta Blues 210, so I have high standards for clean channels. This did not disappoint. The clean channel is bright and articulate, but when cranked, goes straight to plexi territory. The tone is comparable to a couple of reissue JTM45 heads I've played. It's very bluesy, and with my 'buckers in the middle out of phase position, can get me very close to vintage Peter Green tones. With the "Watt" channel turned to about 12 o'clock and the clean volume cranked, it gets the power tube melting tone you'd expect from classic rock albums. With the boost engaged, it's like putting a tube screamer in front of it. Rhythm channel: This is where I am 99.9% or the time. I play heavy rock / sludge in the style of Sleep, Mos Generator, Lo Pan, Wo Fat, etc, and the rhythm channel is right in the classic Laney AOR vein I was originally looking for. It's crunchy and articulate, in the 800 realm, but with it's own personality. Lead channel: This is where things get pretty rowdy. The tone here will put you into Crowbar / Down / EHG, LOG, or any modern metal territory quick. For my taste it's got a little too much gain for what I like, but for leads it's perfect. That being said, it does seem like the lead channel would pair well with pickups more in line with EMG's, SD Blackouts, or any of the newer Lace Hemi series. Something that will let the amp scream, while retaining clarity and articulation. It's not mushy like a Rectifier, just gobs and gobs of gain, while retaining a similar tonal quality to the rhythm channel. As far as looks, this head is well sexy. The red LED's and viewable chassis being a very nice touch. The build quality seems durable, with the bonus being the recessed handles on either side, allowing for a more ergonomic lifting of the amp. If I needed to, I would buy the heck our of this amp again.

        Comments about Laney IRT60H 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        Well...This amp is awsome. the cleans are nice and crisp or nice and dark what ever you want....the gain channel is not muddy sounding and it can be acdc gain or metalica gain...i mean this amp will do it all...a very very tight sound with nice bottom end and not mushy at all.. i use the crunch channel for my high gain distortion and the lead channel to boost my leads and i use the pre boost for my clean boost...works awsome. over all the amp is very loud or very low how ever you want it...built like a tank...very nice giging amp

          Comments about Laney IRT60H 60W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I've had this amp since last November, and i have been completely blown away! Lets start with the clean- it is one of the best clean sounds I have ever heard, so don't think it is just for metal and can't get a clean tone. you can crank this channel and get a great AC/DC type sound.this is where scaling down the watts is very helpful!Next is the rhythm channel. it has an amazing tone for hair metal all the way to modern death metal. I personally love adding the boost,which gives it an amazing saturated overdrive. You will have more gain than you could ever use on this amp. The lead channel is amazing as well, pretty similar to the rhythm channel but with a little more gain. perfect for shredding.
          I cannot think of a single sound that you can't get from this amp, and it sounds amazing with each. I play jazz, blues, classic rock, hair metal, thrash metal, metalcore,and Christian music all on my Les Paul and it blows me away. Buy this amp and you won't regret it!
