Gearank Recommendation

The CUB10 appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Amps Under $300 from March 2018 until October 2018 when a price increase made it ineligible for that list.

Overview

The Laney Cub 10 is a streamlined 10W 1 x 10" tube amp, tweaked to be similar to boutique tube amps minus the expense.

It doesn't have much in terms of features, but it makes up with its impressive hardware specs, at the core of which are two ECC83 preamp tubes and two 6V6GT output tubes.

It follows after classic amplifier designs with its class A/B circuit that gives it a vintage voicing that many prefer.

Since this amp is designed to be portable and easy to use, controls are deliberately simplified, with just three knobs for adjusting, volume, gain and tone.
