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.

Terrific!

By Harold Penson

from South Amboy NJ

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:

    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:

      I've spent about 5 months with this Cub. All I can say is "Get it!" (but I'll say more). Fantastic tones all the way around, clean to Iommi. Picked myself up a used Epiphone Les Paul Junior, 69 bucks. Cleaned it up, set it up, plugged it into the Cub. Oh my! Turned my $69 bargain into a flat-out rock machine. I've got other axes, all much more expensive, but this is my go-to rig. So all, if this Cub can make a $69, one-hummbucker, inexpensive used guitar sound like a million bucks, think what it can do for you. Highly recommended!

        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.

          It's a great sounding amp but it's a re-badged Asian made amp that's way overpriced by Laney. If money is a factor and you don't care about name brand, then get the monoprice version and save $250.

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

          Good light weight practice amp, build quality is excellent. Clean tones are good but limited volume since its a one channel amp, the gain has to be set fairly low , no higher then 2 -3 (out of 10) and the volume raised. Reverb is great sounding. The one watt feature is great, allowing you to get into the sweet spot without getting deaf or clobbered by the neighbors...
          Controls are basic but good, especially the Tone control is very helpfull dialing out any harsh sounds, its kind of a presence controll.
          The only Thing that needs improvement is the stock speaker. I was hoping it would loose some of its harhsness after beeing broken in, but still has those ear piercing frequencies, but those can be controlled via Tone controll.
          I use it in my stereo rig together with a Boss katana 50 w solid state amp, and the two complement each other perfect. Each adds to the mix what the other is lacking and the result is just amazing.

          At 64, it reminds me of the old Gibson and Siertone amps.
