Laney Amplification was founded on September 1st 1967 by Lyndon Laney who started building amps for his friends in his parent's garden shed. Some of Lyndon's first customers were local Birmingham-based guitar players such as Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath.
Since then Laney set a new standard for Metal sound. Soon all those who wanted, a more Heavy Metal guitar sound than other popular amplifier manufacturers offered turned to Laney.
Laney's artist roster features some of the most prominent names in the Metal genre: Tony Iommi, Sharlee D'Angelo of Arch Enemy, Mercyful Fate and Witchery, Kiko Loureiro of Angra, Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel of Killswitch Engage, Linde of HIM, Mattias 'IA' Eklundh and many more.
The band would like to take this opportunity to send warm regards to everyone at Laney and their Croatian distributor Music Centar, especially Mr Igor Bistrovic. Thank you all for your confidence in the band and demonstrated support!
