    I love my GH, it is a bit simplier of a circuit than the VH, but it still is a great amp.

    Alot depends on the price, but you gotta let your ears be your guide.

    If there is no pressure, play it again in a few days.

    The VH is a great sounding and versatile amp. IIIBoomerIII and I went to the shop today where it was and he picked it up for an incredible price. If he didn't get it, I would have.

    Congrats, Eddie, I love that amp, now.

    And that Vacarro guitar is ugly, but it sure did play and sound great!

    i had the vc50, the 50w combo version of the head you bought. its incredibly versatile and what even better, it sounds good!

    with 2 channels and a boost on each channel, you can cover lots of ground. flip to the back and check out the fx loop variety, you hardly even get those options on boutique amps. Id swear if you swap the laney nameplate for something like bogner, these things would sell like hotcakes.

    these buggers are loud though.

    This is definatley a great amp. I can not even begin to tell you
    guys how good this thing sounds. This amp LOVES my avatar
    my open back Avatar Cab. I was starting to hate that cab, now
    it sounds awesome.

    The big surprise for me has been that this amp sounds awesome
    at low volumes. For years I have sworn by 50 watt amps and this one is a 100 watt head. I can not not believe that I do not
    have to hit ear bleed volumes to get a great tone.

    I really am stoked about this head. I sounds much better than
    my boogie. Now I have to buy an Avatar closed back. hehehe
    it never ends!

    Yo Bob thanks for the help in researching this amp! I need to
    take it by your house in the near future so you can hear it thru
    your open back Avatar, like butta. thanks again bro.

    Every guitar sound on this track (except the acoustic) was done with a Laney VC50, even the archtop part in the middle, and that was using the Laney's own reverb:

    test.mikedodge.com/mvdmusic/Leurck/NugionMaster2.mp3

    The mix isn't the best but man, this amp can cover some territory. I've had it for 9 years now and it isn't going anywhere. VERY cool and very underrated amps, IMO.

    You got the joke!:dude It's kind of a cross between Ted Nugent and George Benson, so it's a fusion of sorts......."Nugion"!!

    BTW.....that's a really nice looking family photo! If you want to send any of the kids to Uncle John's house for the summer, you're more than welcome to!

    Thanks for checking out the track, and have a blast with the VH100. I think these are really awesome amps!

    Yo JL, what did you record that on? If it was a computer what
    program did you use and what mics?

    great score, congrats!:dude

    there's a trick you can do with the effects look to get better tone at lower volumes (effectively using it as a master volume)..... if you havent figued it out, i'll try to crack my brain to recall.

    Cakewalk Sonar 3 Producers Edition. To keep my wife and daughters from killing me, I actually tracked everything through a Palmer PGA-05 load box/speaker simulator. When I mic, I usually just use a SM57 halfway between the dustcap and the outer edge, angled slightly towards the dustcap. I can nail pretty much the same sound (maybe just a little better) when I bypass the combo's speakers and run this into a Vintage 30-loaded 2x12 that I have, but at the levels I was pushing the amp I would have been knocking bricks out of the fireplace! Oh, that track has the amp set up for EL34s. Shoot me a PM if you want more details.

    This is probably the one amp I have that is closest to doing everything I like right out of the box (i.e. no pedals required). Between this and my Flexi (which is a classic rock monster - just can't go into the gain territory of the Laney without a little external help) I really have most of my needs covered. The cleans actually sold me on this amp, and once I mated it with speakers that weren't as bright as the H&H stock speakers that come loaded in the combo, I fell in love with the lead tones this thing can produce. Man, if you haven't yet, get that power section cooking! This amp really comes alive! Again, congrats, I can't say enough how much I love this thing.
