Laney Nexus-SLS Studio Live Bass Head 500W

The Laney Nexus-SLS Studio Live Bass Head is a versatile Bass Amplifier Top that is ideally equipped for use both on-stage and in the studio. The Nexus-SLS Studio Live offers a wide range of sound options for any genre thanks to the Integrated Effects, whilst an ECC83 Tube is the central Driver before the Power Amplifier which gives the sound the typical Dynamics and Warmth.

Wide Ranging Sound Options

With its diverse sound options, the Laney Nexus-SLS is a true all-rounder that is at home in all musical styles from Pop to Metal. In addition to the 3-Band Tone Control with Semi-Parametric Mids, the Amplifier has a 4-Stage Shape Switch that allows precise sound adjustments. A Switchable Compressor and an elaborate Effects Section are also available. The latter offers 3x controls that can be used to recall the following Effects:

  • Space: Turned counter-clockwise, the Reverb Effect is added, clockwise a plastic Modulating Chorus.
  • Interval: Counter-clockwise, an Octave below the sound being played is added, clockwise, a 5th above the sound being played.
  • Focus: Determines the proportion of mixed Overtones.

A Serial Effect Path with Adjustable Level is also available for adding further Effects.

500W Class-D Amplifier

The Nexus-SLS is equipped with an ECC83 Tube, which is placed before of the Power Amplifier as a central Driver, for particularly harmonious Dynamic behaviour and the typical Warmth. In addition, the Tilt Equalizer (which can be used to emphasize either Bass or Treble to match the Room/Stage Acoustics) and the Touch Control (which influences the response) are located in front of the Output Stage. With 500W of power, the Class-D Amplifier also releases sufficient Volume reserves for stage and live use. Speakers can be connected via a SpeakOn/TRS Combo Jack with selectable Impedance.

Ready to Record

In addition to its excellent characteristics as a Live Amplifier, the Nexus SLS is also perfectly suited as a recording centre for the studio. The head unit offers a Balanced DI Output in XLR Format, whose tap point can be switched before the Gain Control (Pre), after Equalization and Effect Path (Post) or after Master Volume, Tilt EQ and Touch Control (Output). In addition, a USB 2.0 Port is available to connect the Amplifier directly to a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). It is also possible to re-amplify dry DI Recordings via the corresponding Connection. The Nexus SLS also features a Tuner Output, Stereo Headphone Jack and an AUX Input with separate Level Control.
