The Laney A-DUO is a portable acoustic instrument combo with a range of acoustic-friendly controls and variables including digital reverb and chorus. Designed and engineered in the UK, the A-DUO calls on Laney’s 50-year history of amplifier building to provide versatility, portability, and reliability to all levels of player.
The A-DUO has two completely independent channel strips, both of which can accept either XLR or Jack inputs, provide 3-band equalization and feature a ‘Shape’ control for instant single button optimization. This flexibility allows for connection of a mic and instrument, two different acoustic instruments or even a blend of separate mic and pickup connections from the same instrument. Plus, with an additional Aux in connection for backing tracks, the A-DUO is ideal for live performances.
Both channels also feature their own Chorus and/or Reverb for further sound enhancement without the need for external effects units. Each channel’s Chorus is visibly engaged with a green LED light. This Chorus level can then also be adjusted by simply holding down the Chorus switch and turning the Reverb control pot. On letting go of the Chorus switch, the chorus level is stored and will even be recalled at the next switch on.
A simple but very effective Anti-Feedback button can be engaged to automatically scan for and then eliminate unwanted feedback. A Phase switch is also on hand to remove of destructive interference which can occur when a player is too close to the amplifier; a simple solution at the switch of a single button.
