Hey, i had a brand new GH50L that i was forced to sell, but let me tell you if u can, pick up a GH50l or 100.
The 50l is so loud in my friends band who now owns it, on 3.5 - 4 , he is drowning out a reworked blue voodoo that is up on 6 ...... while he is using a attenuator !!! They are loud and so beautiful sounding, the footswitch adds gain so it will not go to clean unless you dial the gain/boost all the way back. However you get a beautifully clean sparkling tone by rolling you're vol. back on you're guitar while having the gain and boost up.
They really do sound like what u hear on get out of my yard... as long as paul lets u borrow his hands.
Hope this helps.
-J

if its any use to anyone, I disconnected my combo H-H speakers and used a marshall 1922 cab last rehersal and i was loaded with G12-75's
the sound was much, much better.
much less brittle but it was also quieter and thats not a bad thing for a VC50 ;)

I also tried it with a THD hotplate with pretty good results because ive been drowning out the drummer with the amp on 1.5.

sounded great with the valves actually having to make an effort !

Thinking about selling my Laney GH50L.


For $500. It's kind of old, but still works fine. Might need new tubes but that's it.

What do you guys think? Good price? yeah? no?

I'm considering the same with the GH100L, my VC50 does everything the GH100L does and more :)

$500 seems a bit steep to me, what's the condition?

Very average. The black cover is ripped a bit on a part of the amp. I don't want to go below $400, cause the amp goes for quite a bit already. I made a new thread about it so that people will look at it more.

Ant, I know $500 seems expensive for a Laney here but they cost a great deal more in the US...

Well I'm changing it from 400-500. Yeah, the GH50L go for about 700+ here. Thanks for your guys's inputs. :) . Although I don't want to rip someone off, I am still trying to make as much as I can.

Hey guys I just bought a laney GH100L, and I have a problem. When I play it gives a buzzing ear piercing sound. It doesn't sound good at all!! I got a few things that may be causing the problem:

- My cabinet can't take it( but it works with my behringer LX1200H °
- tubes may be broken( the previous owner hasn't played it a long time)
-I'm clueless?

Please help me guys I feel so stupid atm cuz I just got a new amp and can't enjoy it:(.

Thanks in advance

with the amp turned on and the valves exposed so you can see the glass, tap the valves with a pencil (lightly) this should not be heard through the speakers but if you can hear a noise through the speakers then the valves that are generating that noise are knackered.
I would do this test of all the valves, the pre-amp valves will likely be the culprits and when you find the problem change them all rather than just the ones that are microphonic.
I have JJ's in mine and they are great all round tubes.

I tried one of the 30 W tube combos ( I forgot their name) and I kindda liked it. Are they as good as the GH50Ls?

You turn the amp on, but leave the Standby switch off for a few minutes. it lets the amp warm up so the tubes dont get a shock from being cold to hot quickly. Helps the tubes last longer.

I retubed my GH50L and went from stock to high-gain JJ EL34s (the have a kit you can buy). I can tell the different in tone. The new tubes are a little smoother and fatter sounding. I also bought a weber mass from eurotubes. Weber mass + the new tubes made me love my amp.
