Laney Cub 12R – Thomann United States

We’ve added some “new” guys to the moderator crew. All are longtime members that stepped up to the invite to 21r out by volunteering their time and effort to help the membership experience on TGP stay on the even keel. A special thank lwney to the ‘new’ guys that helping out. Sep 17, 1. I’m looking to buy an all tube amplifier.

Does anyone have experience with these amplifiers and if so, is Fender Blues jr.

Laney CUB 12R vs Fender Blues jr.

I know I should try both amplifiers out then decide, but I am buying online so I have to rely on reviews and you guys. Sep 17, 2. Sep 17, 3. Owned both, recommend the Blues JR. ESSep 17, Sep 17, 4. Owned both, recommend the Cub 12r.

DrainBamageSep 17, Sep 17, 5.

I like the cub 10 but not the Getting ready to try a Blues Junior again after learning some set up tips. Sep 17, 6. Sep 17, 7. I’ve been researching the Vox AC Have you looked into that?

SciFlyerSep 17, Sep 17, 8. Sep 17, 9. Sep 17, Yes the Cub 12r had a much smother harmonic rich gain structure that can get pretty hairy. It can do classic gain very well too by just turning the gain knob down. Its a typical laney circuit that is based around a hot rodded jcm preamp if you familiar with that amp. Sep 18, I don’t know what speaker comes in it lane but the cun mine had had to go.

Get a Green back and its a excellent grab and go amp. DrainBamageSep 18, I’ve owned two Hot Rod Deluxes and wanted something a little more portable. I played both the Blues Jr. I sprung for the Monoprice, did my usual tube rolling and speaker try outs, and am now very happy with what I’ve got.


In short, I liked the tones from the Laney better than the Blues Jr. I bought the Monoprice 15 version of the Laney Cub12R and I’ve got a nice sounding little amp at a great price. RickmanSep 18, My question lajey the OP is what type of music do you want to play with the amp? Is is for home playing or with a band? With pedals or grab and go? What type of guitar are you primarily using – single coils?

Both amps have strengths and both have weaknesses For what it’s worth, I play in my home, so nothing too loud if the wife’s home. I find the Laney delivers the classic British Marshall-inspired dirt just as it is. Its cleans are OK, but not the amp’s strength. I tend to play my Les Pauls more than my Strats and Teles, so my bias is to humbuckers.

As for the BJ, I have owned all incarnations, 1 thru 3. I have parted with them and kept the llaney NOS tweed type version. As you ask specifically about version 3, I can tell you it is a fairly bright amp. BJs are also primarily clean amps that can add a little dirt of their own.

That said, all BJ models like pedals. I like the tonal variety, and laugh when I read some other forum bashing the humble BJ The 3 gave me everything I get now, except the speaker change makes the NOS a tad smoother Again, I stress you are not hearing the word boxy, harsh, or under powered applied to either amp because I am Cuub trying to play a club with them, or push them with death metal.

That’s why I have both. When I am in a low wattage Marshall-with-reverb-no-pedal-needed mood- I play the Laney. For a little more variety, I play the BJ. Tweak a version 3 a bit and you get close to my NOS. Both are fine amps The lanfy we find out about all amps in our quest for tone If it’s all about a price, grab the Laney, and enjoy. It’s a good amp. Pay more for what I feel 1r2 a slightly more versatile pedal platform, and enjoy the BJ. Since this is 12d, be me and own both.

David VeeSep 18, Maganus and loziodavid like this. Cub 10 is better then the 12, i had the cub ten its a nice amp but it needs a speaker up grade, I sent it back i should have kept it.


Sep 19, I tried the cub12r in a shop but didn’t care for it that much.

To me it sounded rather boxey and loose in the low end. I remember seeing a thread on here about someone doing speaker and tube changes. That supposedly made lansy dramatic difference.

You might try a search for cub12 mods. AlpoSep 19, Stock, the amp sounded stiff and bright. Couldn’t get a good overdriven sound from it. It sounded mildly fair for clean. The stock speaker was merely okay but horribly inefficient, being 95 db 1 watt.

It might not be the ideal speaker for that amp but it sure made it louder, cleaner and the tone was more complex. Anyway, took the BJr back.

The 12t has a kinda Marshall thing going on but not full on plexi tone. It can be clean if you turn the master all the way up and keep the gain down. It has much more of a juicy, harmonic thing going on than the Fender BJr. It’s also a much smaller cab and lighter in weight as well. I thought the Laney looked a bit wimpy construction wise, but I have taken it to dozens of gigs and jam sessions and it has never failed.

It has some unique features, like the global tone control which is post pre amp and right before the power amp section. Also lanfy a 1 watt attenuated input, plus the full 15 watt input. The reverb is average sounding, being digital, but you don’t have to worry about a reverb pan exhibiting a loud crash if the amp gets jarred in a performance. I’ve used it with mymy Tele and my strat, and it sounds pretty dang good with any of those guitars.

Of course, the humbucker equipped drives the amp harder, so it’s easy to get a creamy overdriven sound. That’s something the BJr couldn’t 12d at all. When driven hard, the BJr exhibited a farty, harsh broken up sound. Very annoying sound IMO. Might be good for guys wanting a clean blues, jazz or country sound, but for rock, it didn’t cut it at all. Just a juicy and organic overdrive.
