I think of Laney more for a Rock/Metal sound, and Vox for chime. Don't get me wrong, Vox can rock, but it's a different voice. The Laneys were originally designed in a time when guitarists, and bassists, wanted more power and more volume, emphasis on 'more'. They never quite achieved the brand recognition of other British amps like Marshall, Orange & Vox, but they were good quality amps. Bear in mind, my opinion is based on my experience with the Laneys of old, not the recent reissues, although it seems that their current marketing campaign has embraced the association with the Metal sound.
