Laney Ironheart IRT120H 120w Valve Head - Three Channels Of Raw Power And Screaming Tones
The Laney Ironheart IRT120H 120 is a monster of a metal tube amp, with Black Country heritage. The sound of the Ironheart is just as you would expect - loud, ballsy and without compromise!
Featuring the classic combination of ECC83 and 6L6 tubes and 120w of power, you won't be running out of gain any time soon, and at no point does the Ironheart get weak or buzzy - it is in your face for full frontal distortion, and has a huge clean to match.
Add in a flexible EQ, preamp boost function, reverb and dynamics control to keep your low end in check when the distortion almost becomes too much!
And until now, all of this would only be available in a tube amp that's too loud for home use... Introducing the "Watts" control which literally allows you to dial the Ironheart down from 120w to just 1w so you can get all that tone and saturation at a bedroom rehearsal level - a truly versatile British metal amp!
Here's what Laney say about the IRT 120H
Producing 120 watts of all ECC83 & 6L6 valve tone the IRT120H possess masses of gain and like its metal relatives – such as the Laney KLIPP and the Laney AOR hits you hard between the eyes like a power hammer from hell!
The IRT120H preamp houses three channels: - Clean, Rhythm & Lead all with independent level controls. The Clean and the Rhythm channels share a 3- band EQ with pull-push shift features on each control that gives you total control over your sound allowing you to dial in that killer tone. The Lead channel has an independent 3- band EQ with pull-push shift features on each control allowing for some radical lead tones.
Everyone has a favourite boost pedal you always seem to end up putting in front of your amp – well leave it at home! One great feature on the IRONHEART is the Pre Boost feature. This works just like kicking in your favourite boost pedal right before your amp. It’s available where ever you are on the pre amp and can be switched in or out via the supplied footswitch.
A standout feature of the IRONHEART range is the WATTS control in the master section. This allows you to really screw down the output of the IRONHEART’s 4 x 6L6 output section, down to less than 1 watt! Great for getting the sound of a full -blown metal head at bedroom levels.
Combine this with a Dynamics control which tightens up you low end when you’re playing a full power and you have a great metal tone at whatever level you decide to play at.
The Tone control works really effectively and allows you to make quick adjustments to your overall sound should you for example change guitars.
The IRT120H features a custom designed and specifically tuned reverb allowing you to add just the right amount of reverb wash over your tone. Adding additional effects via external processors is a breeze – the FX loop on the rear of the IRT120H has a switchable level control meaning you can easily switch your FX loop output level to match the ideal level for your effects gear.
The IRT120H’s simple preamp layout means you can easily dial your perfect tone.
Every IRT120H is supplied with dedicated footswitch, which enables you to switch Pre Boost, channels and reverb without having to use the front panel.
There is no doubt that IRONHEART is a serious kick-ass metal amp and much more.
