The Laney Story
Laney Amplification began in 1967 when Lyndon Laney, whilst playing in a local band, 'The Band of Joy' with John Bonham on drums and Robert Plant on vocals, turned his musical interest into amplifier construction. Initially working in his father’s garage. Lyndon Laney sought to design and build amplifiers with key 'tonal' characteristics that were unheard of at the time. Formed in 1967 by Lyndon Laney, Laney Amplification is a West Midlands based guitar and musical instrument amplifier manufacturer who were closely involved with Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath in the birth of the ‘Heavy Metal’ music genre. Since 1967, Laney Amplification has gone on from strength to strength and is now a multinational company that continues to design ‘tone’ solutions to enable musicians of all playing styles and levels to attain their ‘tonal’ ecstasy. Laney work with globally renowned musicians and bands such as The Prodigy, Killswitch Engage, Skindred, Black Sabbath and many more. Their design archive collection spans the music decades.
British Design and Engineering
Designed and engineered in the Black Country, Great Britain, the IRT-Studio Features the same great Ironheart tube tones as the bigger heads in a low-power, light-weight, portable EL84 all-tube package with some neat features added.
The IRT-Studio is the ultimate in portable amps and is supplied with a carry case and a dedicated 4-way footswitch. Use it in the studio, at rehearsal or on the road.
The IRT-Studio features a USB Audio I/O and a RE-AMP send jack. The T-USB interface supplies both a dry signal and the processed signal – split left and right to your DAW – directly into either your PC/MAC or iPad*, which means that you can alter the guitar tone of your original recording – without having to re-track anything! And do it silently.
A Real Amp
The IRT-Studio is not just a tube pre amp – it is a full 3 channel, all-tube Ironheart amp in a 2u rack. Loaded with a pair of EL84 output valves the IRT-Studio generates either 15 watts or <1 watt RMS of pure valve tone.

+Easy to use
+Reverb is beautiful
-It feels different dialing in compared to other amps (not really a con once you learn it)
-A decent amount of background noise, but in a mix its not super noticable
-Pre-boost is almost unusable because of the noise
-The clean channel breaks up pretty fast
Overall for the price its a steal. You get 3 channels, a digital reverb and a very awesome sounding amp. It can do anything from a subtle crunch to raging distortion. The only problem I have with this amp is it's noise and its clean channel breaks up really early (Not that its a huge problem as I'm using it in a studio session).
Also I find the amp simulator to be pretty useless. If you're just practicing through headphones that's fine; don't expect it to replace your amp in recording though. Also I wish the reamp function could be used by an xlr or 1/4 as opposed to usb.
I recently played this thing next to a Blackstar ht-20 and i was almost positive the Blackstar was going to shine over the Laney, but let me tell you, i fell in love with Laney even more sore after the comparison, Its just so nice and beefy, and has this electrifying overdrive to it, but the once downside is when you pull back the gain, that electrifying gain is still there this is a pro and a con i guess, if you want more crisp thick blues overdrive tones, i suggest a pedal for the amp which is what i did, a real tube overdrive preamp pedal, when i want something a little different.
The boost is freakin awesome! i dont know why people hate the boost, its especially nice to have you dont always have to use it. I dont know how people are using the boost but it definately isnt too noisy?!?! i mean if i have the gain at 7 and the boost at 7 yeah its going to get pretty messy but thats not how this thing works, i mean if the gain is at 7 i boost to about 2-3 and it adds such nice saturation, and colors all the notes even more. if i have the gain at 3-4 i can boost all the way to 7 , idk i thought this was common sense. i use a noise gate as well which is a must for any tube amp, so again i dont know why so many gripe about the boost, i love it, and couldnt imagine the amp without it.
Lastely 20w is freaking loud! i mean loud! 1w is even too loud for my bedroom a lot of times.
Had it for a year and still falling in love with it. only concern is i want the 60w version now :D
