The Laney LC15 is a 15 watt guitar combination amplifier that packs a big sound for such a small amp. It has EL84 tubes and has a single 10" Celestion custom designed speaker. It has two 1/4" inputs in the front for hi and lo input, as well as outputting options in the back for if you wanted to send this to a larger speaker cabinet, which is a really cool feature that makes this more than just a little combo amp.

UTILIZATION

I haven't found that using the Laney LC15 is hard at all, as the parameters found on the amp are ones that I frequently see on other amps. The preamp section has knobs for drive (and a button to engage it), bass, middle, treble, and volume, while the master section has further parameters for tone and reverb. As you can tell, there isn't anything out of the ordinary going on here, and the assistance of a manual is not necessary in my opinion.

SOUNDS

Undoubtedly, the Laney LC15 packs the most punch of any 15 watt combination amp that I've used. I've used the LC15 for recording with a Fender Stratocaster and a few pedals like an Ibanez Tube Screamer and a Line 6 DL-4. While I didn't send the amplifier of the LC15 to an external speaker cabinet, having the option is really awesome. However, I really didn't feel that I even needed to, as this definitely sounded loud enough to record with. I used a Shure SM57 right up on the speaker and I was overall very pleased with the end results. I don't know if this would be loud enough for all shows, but it is definitely loud enough for smaller venues.

OVERALL OPINION

The only downfall of the Laney LC15 (and it is a big one) is the price. It will cost you a seriously pretty penny for a 15 watt amplifier. However, you should definitely be considering that this can be used as only an amp head, which makes the price a bit more realistic without a doubt. If you're looking for a small practice amp though, I wouldn't recommend this one. It has an awesome sound quality and should really only be considered by professionals or for those looking for a small amp to also use as a head. Beyond the price though, the Laney LC15 is probably the best 15 watt amp that I have used for recording sessions.
