Since they were formed in 1967, Laney Amps have been the go-to choice for rockers and metal pioneers who need that extra “push over the cliff.” Lyndon Laney designed his first amps in his Dad’s garage while playing with none other than John Bonham and Robert Plant in Band of Joy, fer cryin’ out loud. Those amps went on to define the sound of Heavy Metal when Black Sabbath used them on their first record. So, there’s your street cred, Jack. Since then they’ve been played by everyone from Randy Rhoads to Vinnie Moore to Warren Di Martini to Ace Frehley and George Lynch and whole scads of others. Get in to The Manor and add yourself to that list, hair farmer!
