NAMM 2024: Laney’s latest announcement marks something of a historic moment in guitar amp production, as it releases three new physical amps alongside an accompanying digital plugin version.

The three new BCC Ironheart amps appear to be replacing and upgrading the now discontinued IRT Ironheart range of tube amps and, like its predecessor, the range includes one 30-watt 1x12 combo, plus a 60-watt head and a 120-watt head. Now though, they are all produced in the firm’s UK Black Country Customs workshop –hence the BCC designation.
