Combo equivalent to Laney GH?

I really fell in love with the sound of the Laney GH amps after hearing them on Paul Gilbert's records. But since I don't gig or anything, and a half stack is far too big for my room. Is there a combo equivalent from Laney? Or something very similair?

The Laney VC50 is supposed to be quite similar to the GH50/100L. Unfortunately they are discontinued, but being in the UK you should be lucky and be able to find a few.

Re: Combo equivalent to Laney GH?

like phantom says, the VC50 will give you the sound you are after, its actually a combo'd Vh100R - has two channels, both with their own OD or boost and sounds the nuts... well, I would say that cos ive got one

I actually found a NOS VC50 in the UK recently, it was about 750, but if you dont want to pay that there is one on the bay # 290231071391 for 320.
I cant recommend them enough, the only things are its and incredibly bright amp and I reckon the speakers need changing from the HH stockers to V30's or something.
