Re: Laney VC50 combo - Need some comments about it
They are very good!!! The lead tone is their strong point. If you get to try one. Set the treble a little under half way, bass a little over half way, middle about half way and push the gain around to what you like. You should find (with humbuckers) you get nice round notes with lots of sustain.
Laney amps are let down by the cabinet design and could sound a lot better from stock. One of the best tones i have ever had was a laney gh50l head on a mesa 1x12 black shadow wide boy. It was REALLY REALLY good!!!! and both amps are pretty much one and the same, with the vh having a bit more gain.
This post only applys to the tone you asked about though
