The Laney CUB 8 features a classic single-ended Class A design, and is loaded with a single ECC83 in the pre amp section and a single 6V6GT in the output section generating 5 watts RMS of vintage tube tone. The CUB 8’s control panel is simplicity personified – a tone control, a volume control, Hi and LO input and that’s your lot. The CUB 8 houses an 8″ Celestion driver.
Using a CUB 8 is straightforward, plug in, dial in your tone and wind the volume up a little and the 6V6GT’s respond in a bright, bouncy and brilliant fashion. Drive the output section harder and the increased 2nd and 3rd order harmonics give the tone a pronounced bottom end and a lovely lower mid.
