Been on the quest for a small bedroom tube amp. I had a Fender Super Champ X2. It was good sounding on CH1, but Ch2 always had the modeler fakeness I couldn't overcome. Found a good deal on this Laney VC15 on eBay. It came in and looks showroom new. Still had Jensen speaker tag and even shipped in original box. I put some new JJ's I had laying around and fired it up. Has a real nice clean channel. Smooth and has that slight tube bloom to the notes. Cranking it up gets you into edge of breakup tones when you dig in. Drive channel is very mild, only gets into classic rock cranked. I haven't had enough time yet to fully figure out the best settings, but I can set the Drive to a nice bluesy tone that cleans up well. The reverb is digital and very mild. Has a short decay and you have to turn it up most of the way to get some deeper verb. Appearance. It's beautiful in the Old English White tolex. It's kind of soft touch too, has a real premium feel. It feels premium as compared to other $500 amps. Not sure if the cab is plywood or mdf yet. The speaker is a Jensen C10Q8. I'm not sure about this choice. Because it is tiny, the sound is a little focused and boxy.
