Laney Amplification unveil the brand new Tony Iommi Signature
Model Amp at the Frankfurt Musikmesse.
Celebrating the four decades since Black Sabbath first unleashed
heavy metal into the world, Laney have joined Tony Iommi on his
long journey as his amp of choice.
Previous Iommi signature models have included the GH100TI, which
was released almost 20 years ago this year. The new TI100
represents a dramatic leap forward for the amp makers.
"Born out of an exhaustive period of product development, carried
out hand in hand with Tony, with Tony bringing unique insight,
suggestions and innovations at every stage of the process, whilst
continually assessing and refining the sonic character of guitar
tone." Laney say in their announcement at www.laney.co.uk
Speaking about the TI100, the legendary guitarist says
"Almost 40 years ago I embarked on my musical journey with
Laney. My first signature Laney amp, the GH100TI came out
almost 20 years ago and it served me faithfully on the biggest
stages in the world with Black Sabbath as well as recently with
Heaven & Hell. I'm always searching for more out of my
tone, more flexibility, more dynamics and that's where my ideas for
the new TI100 came from. It took time and dedication to get
it right and I'm happy to say I was involved in each step of the
amps design, development & testing. The end result is a
signature amp that I am extremely proud of and happy to stand in
front of anywhere in the world. The TI100 represents
everything I've ever wanted in an amp, it's fabulous"
