Laney TI15-112 Tony Iommi Signature
Laney introduces the TI15-112, a small 1x12 15W combo tube amp that bears Tony Iommi's seal of approval.
This amp is a smaller and more compact alternative to Laney's 100W head Tony Iommi signature TI100, ideal for Black Sabbath fans or classic rock annd metal players.
This combo amplifier is designed to be Tony's backstage amplifier, a compact amp that carries identical high-gain tones as the bigger 100W Signature.
It is meant for guitarists that require Iommi-approved high-gain in a compact and portable package.
At the heart of this combo amp are three ECC83 preamp tubes and two EL84 power tubes, configured into a Class AB setting. The amp drives a Custom HH 12" speaker.
Getting your desired tone with this amp is simple and straightforward, you have a single channel with controls for volume, drive and 3-band EQ. Further tone tweaking is provided for by the amp's pre-boost, dynamics and tone knobs. Aside from basic amp controls, Laney gave this amp some nifty features like effect loop, mp3 input and compatibility with FS2 footswitches.
The TI15-112 features Laney’s unique dual wattage input option that lets you select between 15W or 1W. This essentially lets you get consistent tone regardless of the volume. You can push the EL84 output section hard and get 15 watts rms high-gain tone or plug into the “less than 1 watt” and get great sounding tones at practice friendly volumes.
Like many modern amplifiers, the TI15 comes with a speaker emulated record out, allowing you to plugin the amp direct to your mixer and still get sounds that behave like speakers.
Finally, all these features are packed into a compact and nice looking 1x12 combo amp configuration, featuring the same design elements as the Tony Iommi signature TI100. The finish reflects Tony's preferred black and cross theme.
The estimated street price for the Laney TI15 combo amplifier is a little over $600. For more information, you can head over to Laney.
