Laney Amplifiers were born in the West Midlands in 1967 by Lyndon Laney. The West Midlands was UK industrial heartland and Lyndon who was playing with The Band of Joy which included John Bonham on drums and Robert Plant on vocals wanted to design amplifiers that sounded different from what was commercially available.

The West Midlands has given us some of the greatest bands and most talented musicians that the UK has ever produced. So it is no surprise that Laney has grown into a multinational company with a loyal and strong customer base.

Laney can be rightly credited with the design of amplifiers that founded Heavy metal as Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath has been a lifelong user of Laney amplifiers. Today, Laney Still works with Black Sabbath and modern artists such as The Prodigy, The Foo Fighters, and Skindred. Laney are the jewel in the crown of UK amplifier manufacture as they continue to product a range of well-designed good sounding amplifiers. These upgrade kits are designed to help you get the best out of these British designed Amplifiers.
The Laney Cub 8 Classic H&K Sylvania full revalve kit is designed to give you an instant upgrade over the standard Chinese valves by improving a number of important characteristics.

This is done by using modern day production ECC83 Harma Retro valve which is traditionally voiced to sound as close to the original Mullard ECC83 in the pre amp section. In the output stage we use an original American military grade made Sylvania 6V6GTY branded Heintz & Kaufman.

This combination removes the High end fizz and rather dull distortion characteristics which is the most common complaint levelled at this amplifier. This combination brings the amplifiers sound back to life.

The Sylvania 6V6GTY H&K is considered one of the best valves of its type for clean or overdriven sounds. You will get improvements in the distorted sound as the valve has an early warm break up.
The top end has more extension and punch with a nice openness which is lost on the stock valve.
The Sylvania has a nice tight a full blown bass response with a nice fat sustaining midrange

This combination gives you the classic blues warmth and extra sparkle in the top end that is not available when using modern made 6V6GT
