I saw this in a local mom-and-pop store, and was pretty intrigued by it. They don’t seem to be widely available at the big online retailers yet, although the 112 version is everywhere. I got this for a couple bucks less than the regular price of the 112. Haven’t really gotten to light it up yet, so the jury is still out. I’m liking what I hear thus far. It is a single channel amp, with a 15 watt input and a .75 watt input. You have to tweak the volume and gain knobs to dial in the sound you want. Standard three band equalizer with one additional “tone” knob for a little more control. Digital footswitchable reverb. Has a built in stand on the front bottom edge that lets you tilt it back a little bit, nice touch. Pair of EL84’s, three 12AX7’s. The speakers are Laney branded, I thought they were Celestion Rocket 50s, but upon closer inspection, maybe not. I dig it.
The Cub 12 circuit is similar to the drive channel on the VC15, so it can't be bad
The stock speakers in the Cub are special made by HH, a company who have made speakers for Laney in decades, and is said to be owned by Laney.
Congratulations and happy NAD
