BAJAAO India introduces the new 2009 Laney Prism P35, which has lots of features that'll excite the tone-conscious guitarist, going from clean to extreme settings and capturing classic guitar amp sounds, and looking at the whole picture rather than just concentrating on one aspect of a player's tone. Great for brand practice or even gigging in small venues.
The P35 is packed full of features and follows the new Laney philosophy in Digital amp design - Gone are the days of simply approximating the sounds of other amplifiers.
Lets take a look at the P35's pre amp from left to right. The left hand side of the pre amp houses the AMP settings and the mode selection switches and onboard tuner, the centre of the pre amp features the conventional amplifier controls and the right hand side of the pre amp is devoted to handling the effects side of things and the overall master volume control.
The P35 can be used in one of two modes - HERO & LIVE. Simply press the corresponding button to select the desired mode.
HERO mode comes pre-loaded with 11 inspirational guitar tones from "Clean to Extreme" which take their inspiration from the different amp and effects combinations used on classic guitar recordings.

Dialing through each of the HERO modes will also show you the cool LED visual recall - for each mode the position of each of the P35's controls is shown by LED indicators around each knob showing you exactly what each value is. GREAT FEATURE!
In LIVE mode the P35's controls function like a conventional WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) amplifier, but with the cool feature of being able to use one of the 11 different AMP setting as a starting point for producing your own tone. Simply select the AMP mode you want, adjust the controls to suit and the add the effects you want - more on that in a moment - and then store the end result to one of the four user channels on the amp by simply pressing and holding the desired channel button for 2 seconds.

Any of these AMP modes can be selected and then modified and stored along with the effects you want to one of the four user defined channels.
The P35 also features a variable BOOST function, which can be assigned to any of the AMP modes, adjusted to suit your needs and stored in one of the user banks for later recall.
The P35 houses a comprehensive multi-FX Palette consisting of 11 carefully selected effect combinations giving you access to all the classic studio quality effects you?ll need. Each effects selection is fully editable with all the key parameters accessible by the TAP and EDIT control functions and combinations of the TAP, A, B & bypass buttons, all of which are fully explained in the manual.
