The Laney Lionheart range takes everything that we love in a great tube amp - thick lead tone, warmth, dynamics and expressive breakup - and puts it into a British-sounding amp which stout character and tone.
This 20w combo might surprise you. The Celestion speaker has loads of bass and is responsive enough for dynamic lead playing with overdrive, huge-sounding for big clean passages, and has just the right break up point for higher gain rock and even metal tones.
Here's what Laney say about the Lionheart L20T-112
The L20T-112 combo features the same highly respected preamp design as the rest of the Lionheart range and consists of a clean and drive section with shared 3 band EQ, global reverb and an overall tone control.
The L20T-112's all valve power amp houses a road tested 20 Watt Class A parallel single ended EL84 equipped output section, not previously seen in a Lionheart 1 x 12 combo. This offers the player an increased headroom option in a combo whilst still giving masses of vintage valve tone in a compact stylish package.
The rear panel of the L20T-112 features a footswitch socket for switching channel and reverb with the FS2 provided, an FX loop for connecting external FX devices and finally an external speaker socket for adding an additional speaker enclosure such as the LT212. The L20T-112 also features the innovative folding tilt mechanism that has proved popular on the rest of the Lionheart range.
The L20T-112 can sound either vintage or modern depending on how you use the preamp controls - back off the gain, wind up the master and you're cooking up serious retro tone. Digging in hard produces extra bite, or backing off cleans it all up.
The Lionheart range is a significant amplifier in todays market offering serious tone that's often difficult to find even in products costing twice the price. Lionhearts are easy to use and most players will get a great tone out of them within seconds.
