The Laney Lionheart L5 Studio 5-Watt Guitar Amplifier Head combines Class 'A' tube tone with the ability to connect directly to your DAW of choice via Laney's unique T-USB technology. Whether you're recording at home, in the jam room or on the go, the direct recording abilities of this little beauty make it a gem. You can also connect to your favourite speaker cab for intimate live performances.
The L5-Studio is equipped with an impressive tube arrangement that consists of a trio of 12AX7 valves in the preamp and an EL84 in the power amp. Whether you're seeking crisp cleans or fancy cranking things up a bit, you can nudge the tubes into a hot sweet spot for dreamy overdriven beefiness. The L5-Studio boasts two channels for clean and overdriven tones, a Bright switch for emphasising high-end clarity, a shared 3-band EQ with Bass, Middle and Treble knobs, a global Tone shaping control and a studio-quality digital reverb.
The L5-Studio gives you to option of outputting 5-Watts RMS or 0.5-Watts RMS of sublime Single-Ended Class 'A' tube richness depending on your speaker setup. If you want to keep the volume lower but crank up the tubes, then more power to you!
Rear panel connectivity
Across the rear panel you'll find a plethora of both analogue and digital outputs including an XLR D.I output with switchable speaker emulation. There is a headphone connection which can be used either for headphones or to supply a stereo feed to a PA. The corresponding Level pot allows you to raise or lower the headphone volume level accordingly.
The FX Loop features Send and Return jacks as well as an Attenuation Switch with -10dB, 0dB and Bypass options to work in accordance with your FX unit level. The Remote socket allows you to connect the included FS2 footswitch for hands-free channel switching and activating/deactivating the built-in reverb.
The T-USB interface supplies both a dry and a processed signal that are split left and right respectively when passed to your DAW, enables you to manipulate your original recording with limitless potential without having to go back and re-track your parts.
As we've come to expect from the team at Laney, the Lionheart L5-Studio is as solid as they come yet looks delightfully elegant. Built using marine grade plywood with retro binding strip and a leather strap handle, it would make a stylish addition and take pride of place in any studio.
