Created in Black Country, England, The 30 watt Laney Ironheart IRT30 is packed full of features, amazing tone and a
thoroughly modern and aggressive look. The versatility of this amp is one of the many reasons it is one of the best metal amps, and has become such a favorite among heavy metal musicians.
At 30 watts, this three-channel guitar amplifier pumps out an impressive sound, but it’s not equipped to handle large venues. It does however deliver more than enough power for the practice room, or perhaps even a small venue. The vast range of effects and features is really impressive for an amp of this size, and no matter how bizarre of a sound you want, this amp is up to the task.
The Laney IRT30-112 also features watts control, which allows you to get the tone you are after at any wattage level, from 30 watts all the way down to 1 watt, without destroying your tone. Channel-wise, there’s the option of Clean or Rhythm, a gained-up lead channel, plus a switchable pre-boost, and the distortion on the Ironheart is truly monstrous. An included footswitch allows you to switch sounds, activate the boost, and turn the amp’s digital reverb on or off.
The all-tube Laney IRT30-112 delivers amazingly rich and organic crunch sounds, giving you the chugging sounds all metal guitarists crave. The rhythm tones are chunky and the leads are fat and juicy. No matter how high you crank this amp, the sounds stay distinct and clear.
