Laney has revealed new IRF-Dualtop and IRF-Leadtop amp heads for their Ironheart Foundry amp range. Aimed at being flexible and powerful, making them perfect for studio and live work.
The Laney IRF-Dualtop is a dual-channel compact amp head with 60 watts of power.
Channel 1 has independent gain and volume controls and a triple-mode clipping switch that allows users to alter the nature of the gain. With Bright, Natural, and Dark modes to choose from.
Users can use the A SIM mode for a more compressed sound.
Channel 2 also has independent gain and volume controls, along with a triple-mode EQ switch.
This model comes with a foot-switchable Boost, a 3-band passive EQ, and an FX loop.
Plus, an on-board digital reverb- based around the Secret Path algorithm, and a handy switchable IR-loaded speaker-emulated XLR DI output.
This DI out has two switchable IRs for a 1 x 12 and 4 x 12 cab. There is also a cabinet-emulated headphone out, and an Aux-in for use with backing tracks.
MSRP – GBP 259
Next up is the smaller IRF-Leadtop model which was designed to be used as either a desktop amp or as a small live amp.
It still has 60 watts of power, but is a lot more compact.
This model is a single-channel amp and has a foot-switchable pre-boost feeding a channel that can be run in clean or lead modes.
Controls consist of gain and volume, plus a triple-mode EQ voicings switch and a three-band passive tone stack.
Finally, this model has a transformer-isolated effects loop which also doubles as a line out to a PA, and a high and low power mode switch to run at less than 1 watt of power.
This is a great little all-rounder and perfect for recording and playing live.
MSRP – GBP 169
There is also a matching GS112FE cabinet which can be purchased with either head as a limited-edition rig bundle.
