The 5w Laney L5 Studio Head is perfect for those seeking lovely breakup and British Tube Tone at lower volumes. Play at home and enjoy real tube saturation. It can handle the average rehearsal, and with a strong cab you could have classic Laney fat tube sounds at a stadium gig. Small and punchy this is a great head and it's portable enough to take wherever the music leads you
All that is added is a spring reverb for authentic tube reverb tones. Everything else is designed to give transparent Laney tone through and through this awesome little amplifier.

Here's what Laney say about the L5 Studio Head:
Designed and engineered with pride in Great Britain, the L5-STUDIO is the first – and only – Single-Ended Class ‘A’ tube amplifier that has the ability to interface directly with any DAW, across any platform, using Laney’s unique T-USB technology.
The L5-Studio is ideal for home and studio use, it can be run silently using the high-quality internal dummy load which means it can be used at any time day or night. The L5-Studio delivers an amazing array of clean, crisp, dynamic and open guitar tones. Whatever your style, play through a Lionheart and you’ll be amazed at how it reacts to your touch.
Internal Dummy Load
In order to let you operate your tube amplifier silently we have included an internal dummy load. This means that you can use your amplifier without the need to connect an external load (speaker) to it, without fear of damaging your amplifier.
Single Ended Class A
Single-ended (SE) power output stages are probably the simplest form of power amplifier design and usually used for relatively small amplifiers, e.g., less than 15W. SE can only operate cleanly in Class A mode and produce an output rich in even harmonic distortion.
The T-USB interface supplies both a dry signal and the processed signal – split left and right to your DAW – directly into either your PC/MAC or iPad.
