Laney IRT-STUDIO Ironheart 15W Head
Featuring the same great IRONHEART tones as the bigger heads but in a low wattage studio package with some neat features added. Most of us agree that we'd love to record in a situation where making a lot of noise was not an problem but in most cases we're recording in our home studios and making a lot of noise is not always an option. So the Laney IRT-STUDIO IRONHEART has a couple of features designed specifically to allow you to get a great tone whether you are recording in the studio or recording live.
The Laney IRT-STUDIO features a USB Audio I/O and a RE-AMP send jack. The USB supplies both a dry signal and the processed signal split left and right to your DAW directly into either your PC/MAC or iPAD, which means that you can alter the guitar tone of your original recording without having to re-track anything!
The IRT-STUDIO has an internal dummy load so unlike a conventional tube loaded amp you don't need to connect an external speaker Which gives you truly silent recording!
The IRT-STUDIO also houses a high quality speaker-emulated record out immediately after the output section which means it delivers all valve tone to your DAW or PA or both at the same time for recording your live shows.
Check out Jack Thammarat showing us the awesome reamping features of the Ironheart Studio (IRT-Studio). The top half of the video is Jack performing the track "The Sky Was The Limit"...The bottom half is Jack ''Re-Amping" the dry track straight back into the IRT-Studio as the dry track plays back through the unit. Jack is using this plugged into a speaker cabinet for monitoring. Because of the built in dummy load, you can also run it without a speaker completely silently.

Good little amp but needs an EQ pedal to get the most out of it. Disappointed that it didn't come with its bag, and the label sticker was missing suggesting this was not a brand new product, but it was reflected in the price.
