Laney Guitar Amplifiers, All Amp Types

Laney Guitar Amplifiers

Laney Guitar Amplifiers are well know to guitar players being one of the first brands to appear on the market in the 60s. Laney Amplification was founded in 1967. The first laney guitar amplifier was a home made valve amplifier used by the group Band of Joy, by the inventor. As word spread of the great tone generated by this valve guitar amplifier, the inventor decided to sell his design to other local musicians, including Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath. This unique tube amp sound can be heard on Black Sabbath’s debut 1971 album. Once this album was released and Iommi was seen using the Laney Guitar Amplifiers on stage demand for laney amps took off. From the late ‘60s through much of the ‘70s, Laney focused primarily on their flagship LA100BL and KLIPP series of guitar amplifiers. The KLIPP series included a treble booster.

As the 1980s began, there was an increased demand for overdrive and gain and this made Laney guitar amps popular with rock guitarists including Randy Rhodes and Ace Frehley. In 1995 Laney introduced a Tony Iommi signature amplifier, the GH100-TI. See below our list of Laney guitar amplifiers.
