Gibson Lab Series L5 2×12 Combo w Reverb & Compressor; Clean!
Just bought a 70’s Lab Series L5 amp off Craigslist for cheap cheap cheap. I snagged an Lab Series L5 2×12 combo off Craigslist for next to nothing apparently their resale value is zilch. Brought it home last night and can’t wait to take it out on a gig. Nice snag!
L5 Series mixers are finished in a tough, easy-to-clean, non-chip white nylon coating. The flat base is covered by a removable non-slip mat, which is resistant to.
Check the Stairville and Flyht Gorilla lines from Thomann. They give the sizes for each model. Good point. I also like to arrive early. I need the time to transition from roadie to musician. It’s always a little nervewracking to park, load-in, set up and test the rig — I’m always concerned One thing I used to do when I was gigging was to arrive early to the venue, before anyone else to allow time to sort out the peculiarities of the location and to get fully set up with plenty of time I have an ES from I really like.
The thin body is very comfortable to play, and the available tones are nice. And most likely stamped T-Tops as opposed to the earlier stickered T-Tops. These can sound fine for jazz but are a bit brighter than 57 Classics or the Shaw PUPs that followed,. Blues Junior. At most jazz volumes they are clean enough and the tube break up is perfect for rock or blues.
Well, I hate to be over-simplistic although I don’t think it is really.

I was surprised after playing it to find that it was solid state. I had no clue about anything else on this amp other then a quick search on my phone to see what they normally sell for.

Email Sugaree Licks any additions or corrections to Versions. King and Ty Tabor like them, too! The clean tone is excellent. The built-in distortion is OK, but the amp sounds better with a good distortion pedal, or using a small, overdriven tube amp as an overdrive. The parametric mid on the second channel is very cool one of the better two knob parametric mid controls made , as is the built-in compressor. The reverb is pretty good except at extreme settings.

The MOD is loud, dynamic, and well defined. It has a defined warm crunch response to overdrive distortion. The stock CTS ceramic speakers on my LAB Series L5 were far from bad, but a little lacking in high end and with a little too much lower midrange for my taste. According to reviews and its frequency response chart, the MOD would theoretically cure these slight shortcomings.
The L5 is best known as BB King’s first choice amp on tour. And it has been associated with his signature sound from the s to date. Lab Series are built like.
The latest development in high shear lab mixing — the new Silverson L5M-A — is ideal for all laboratory work, research and development, QA analysis and small scale production in all industries. The L5M-A Laboratory Mixer is suitable for the widest range of applications — mixing, emulsifying, homogenizing, disintegrating and dissolving — with an efficiency and flexibility unmatched by other machines.
The multifunctional L5M-A lab mixer features touch screen control with digital tachometer, programmable integral timer and amperage display. This level of instrumentation is invaluable for applications where process validation and reproducibility are required. The high-speed rotation of the rotor blades within the precision-machined mixing workhead exerts a powerful suction, drawing liquid and solid materials upwards from the bottom of the vessel and into the center of the workhead. Centrifugal force then drives materials towards the periphery of the workhead where they are subjected to a milling action in the precision-machined clearance between the ends of the rotor blades and the inner wall of the stator.
This is followed by intense hydraulic shear as the materials are forced, at high velocity, out through the perforations in the stator and circulated into the main body of the mix. The materials expelled from the head are projected radially at high speed towards the sides of the mixing vessel. At the same time, fresh material is continually drawn into the workhead maintaining the mixing cycle.
A comprehensive range of workheads and screens is available for all Silverson high shear mixers.
