Gear: Laney Lionheart L5T 112 class A review

Let there be blues!

An in-depth demo of Laney’s great sounding Lionheart L5T – 112 class A tube amp.

After comparing the audio quality of this Youtube vid {In 720p HD} to the original file on my PC, it is quite clear that Youtube’s compression techniques take away some of the audio quality.

I hope you still get a good idea of how the amp sounds… The character is still there for the most part… But you really need to go play one in a shop to hear how great this amp sounds as these vids don’t do it justice – no matter how much effort went into getting the sound right.

Split into 4 parts:

Part 1 – Demo of the clean channel

Part 2 – Drive channel

Part 3 – Sound clips of both channels without backing track

Part 4 – A closer look around the amp

I’ve just improvised over the backing track so you’ll have to excuse some sloppy playing! It’s a demo of the amp not me!!!
