Find an old late '60s Laney Supergroup with NOS tubes and Partridge transformers and you have got yourself a '68 plexi killer: this baby sounds big, bold and heavy!!

The circuit of this super rare and very original 50W Laney Sound Supergroup LC-50 is 99% identical to a 60's Marshall 1986 50W Bass amp, just like the one Duane Allman loved to use to get his legendary tone.

Check out the Allman Brothers Band - Live At Fillmore East from 1971. That's the tone!

An also very cool and rare feature is that the 2x12 in this combo is mounted vertical, whereas most other 2x12 Combo's are mounted horizontally. Speakers are original Celestion T1221 Greenback 12inch G12M's, date stamped DF4 (4 March 1973) making this one of the last Supergroups ever built! The original capacitors all date anywhere in between 1971 and 1973 and the original Partridge transformers date to 1969 and 1971 as well. Laney started to produce the Klipp range by 1973 so this is one of the last old parts high quality Supergroup amps ever made...

In 1967 Lyndon Laney played in a local band, "The Band of Joy" with John Bonham on drums and Robert Plant as a lead singer. Lyndon quit the band to start building amps in his father's garage. In 1968 Lyndon builds a PA System for Robert Plant who started a new band with former bandmate John Bonham called Led Zeppelin for their US tour. In 1969 and 1970 his amplifiers gained popularity among British musicians among which Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath. Iommi used Laney's amps during the recording of the first Black Sabbath album which launched on Feb 1970 and played them live since. That album defined the new sound of heavy metal and cemented the Laney name along with it...
