The Laney NEXUS TUBE pumps out 400 watts RMS of pure, uncluttered bass tone via a unique preamp and power amp package containing 3x 12AX7, 1x 12BH7 and 8x KT88 power amp tubes.

The NEXUS TUBE is designed and built to high professional standards using the best available parts. The Nexus all-tube bass head with its menacing "Terminator" looks oozes quality even before you hear its crushing bass tone.

The Nexus TUBE packs a high-tech preamp with over 24 features on the front panel alone. It might look complicated but it is laid out logically and can be tailored to your individual needs.

Internally, the NEXUS TUBE packs massively oversized torroidal transformers.


Valve-wise, the Nexus Tube comes loaded with 12x AX7s handling the gain side of things, a 12B7 handling the drive, and 8 rugged KT88 power valves pushing out 400 watts of bass punch and midrange crunch. Gold-plated relays and hefty grille protection give the Nexus a heavyweight yet beautifully constructed persona.

Increasing the "Terminator" feel of the Nexus TUBE is its internal array of LEDs that glow bright blue and red when in use indicating valve status. This extensive protection system also includes separate fuses per power valve to prevent total shutdown in the event of individual failure.

From vintage valve-soaked bass lines, coloured with tube distortion, to clean slap and pop with more treble, the ability to switch from/between/combine tube gain or fet gain means that the possibilities are endless. You can add more punch to your sound with the on-board compressor and you can add more bass with the on-board sub feature.

The supplied footswitch also gives you the ability to switch in and out the internal compressor and graphic and parametric EQ for on-stage control.

The rear panel of the Nexus TUBE houses everything the player will need when it comes to interfacing with outboard gear and cabinet compliments.

High-quality Neutrik combination Speakon/jack sockets give you cabinet options down to 2 Ohms, FX Loop, XLR DI out selectable Pre/Post EQ option and a pre-amp out/Power amp in loop give you everything you need and the panel is finished off with a tuner out socket and a port for connecting the custom FS5 footswitch supplied with the unit.
