Laney's name is often associated with its most famous endorser, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, and the Ironheart IRT15H head is a worthy inheritor of this legacy of doom. It's a 15-watt, dual EL84-powered beast, and though it produces a wide range of excellent tube tones, it is very well suited to aggressive, high-gain sonic destruction in a way that the rest of the amps on this list are not. The IRT15H has a tremendous amount of gain on tap (more than most players will ever need), and its tight bottom end and extensive tone-shaping capabilities allow it to achieve some frighteningly abusive metal tones, even when plugged into its 1-watt input. This diminutive Ironheart will bring the pain at any volume level, making it a great all-around thrash monster for the studio or the stage.
