An array of bass player-friendly connections is straight at hand: Normal or High jack inputs can be selected depending on the output of the bass used. A balanced XLR D.I. provides direct, mic-free mixer connection when recording or performing live. An Aux input allows play-along to a backing track. A headphone socket allows secluded listening to your sounds when the need arises. An FX loop allows connection of external effects. The R500-115 is fitted with Speakon connectors to the rear panel, giving secure and safe connectivity to your chosen extension cabinets.
OWN YOUR TONE
The R500-115 combines flexible tone-shaping with simple interface: Set between conventional Bass and Treble controls is a 10-band Graphic EQ featuring a wide range from 30Hz to 8KHz. This is also coupled with Laney’s unique ‘Enhance’ control that dials in increased low-end definition from a single turn, plus a selectable on-board compressor. The R500-115 lets any bass player own their tone!
