Post Laney VH100R
Who here has one? I just bought one. if you own one, what tips do you have to keep it in good health? (do u have to turn off standby and let it sit for the tubes to cool down before totally turning it off? ) What knob settings do you prefer? Any advice would be appreciated

I don't know much about standby and tube cooling, but I DO know that you just bought a VERY nice amp. Congrats.

I have a Laney all-tube combo, the LC-15R. The tone is fantastic even at bedroom levels. I think Laney makes great products for the money.

I’ve had my VH100R for about a year now. It is a great amplifier! You should always utilize the stand-by switch with a tube amplifier (or so we’re told) if the amplifier has a stand-by switch. It protects your investments—amp and tubes.

What knob settings? Well, that’ll depend on your guitar and pickups. With my Charvel with the Live Wire Metals in it, the settings are different as compared to my RG7460 with TZ7 in the neck and the Evo7 in the bridge. Whacha running into the VH100?

I swapped out the stack EL34s for JJ E34Ls and ECC83S—courtesy of www.eurotube.com. The tube change gave a little more ‘darkness’ to the overall bright sound of the VH100R.

Also, invest in a power attenuator like the Hot Plate. It is worth its wait in platinum. There is nothing better than running my VH100 @ about 1 o’clock, getting that power tube saturation and still being able to carry on a conversation without screaming!

I’m goan drop a Paf7 into the neck and a TZ7 into the bridge of my ESP M207, I’m sure that’ll sound sweet with the VH100R. I just had an Air Norton 7 & TZ7 put into my S7420 (AN7 neck and TZ7 bridge) and it is a great combination. I tried it through a Crate Blue Voodoo 120 head that simply rocked. I had to make sure that I was playing through a Crate!

An attenuator simply is a requirement to get that drive outta our 100-watt heads without removing the hearing from our craniums! I saw an 8ohm Hot Plate on Ebay that has a start price for $50.

I’m sure that you’ll love your VH100R. It has a great voice, something that is quite powerful yet distinct.

Correction from previous post, I have an RG 7620, not an RG 7460.

You like the TZ7? I don't really like the one I have in my seven string. To mem it sounds pretty much different than the six string version. Of course the guitar body, hardware and stuff is gonna alter the sound somewhat, but I never imagined they would be this different.

I'm thinking of swapping it to a Blaze 7 or a Evolution 7.

I actually like the TZ7 a lot. It is a little different sounding then the 'regular' TZ, but still pushes with a lot of authority. It has the grit of rock, but still can sound refined without any gain.

I really am not that impressed with the Evo7 because it is a bit 'brittle' sounding as compared to the TZ7 that is the neck of my RG7620. Without gain the Evo7 sounds even more 'brittle', but I rarely use that guitar on a 'clean' channel. The few times that I am using a clean channel with that guitar, the TZ7 in the neck sounds amazing.

FWIW, the Air Norton 7 in the neck and TZ7 in the bridge of my S7420 sounds absolutely stunning. I was in shock with how good that combination sounded through all the amps I tried it through (the aforementioned Blue Voodoo head, my Tone Blaster 25 @ my girl friend's place and my TT50). I can't wait to try that bad boy out @ rehearsal through my VH100R!
