    In these virus times, you do not have much to do, sat and watched Blocket in Sweden (much like cragslist in US)

    Then this Laney LT20-112 showed up for about 320Usd.

    The man who owned it had bought it new in 2016, he's actually bassist, tested the amp with guitar, but realized after a couple of hours that he wasn't.

    Packed it and put the amplifier in the box and forgot about it.

    And now it was time to sell off the guitar stuff.

    I live only 15 minutes away so went there right away and bought it.

    There wasn't even dust on the amplifier

    Now I been able to play it for a few weeks, it sounds amazing, Very like Vox until you plug in the Drive channel, a middle between early Vox and Marshall.

    The clean channel is fantastic, Among the best I've heard

    Love this amp.

    I think they make the same amp in a 2-12” also (20w) It comes with a V30 and a G12H, I use a V30 and a G12H 75CB and it seems to work good with everything. Great score, I always think of these being similar to Supro amps.

    I almost bought a used one off a local guy last year. It had been that price I would've. In the end he offered to swap it for a guitar I was selling. I really should've taken it. I think they are a really great bit of kit with a flavour that's different but very cool. I was still getting into my DSL 40 CR at the time. I'd heard the laney first things might have been different. Needs to be pretty loud though to sound as good as it can.

    The L20T sounds pretty good in TV-Volume also, but when it´s pushed a little, the magic happens :)
