Super Lead Overdrive
|After several years of
severe jonesing, I finally pulled the trigger on a brand spankin' new SLO. There really
are no words to adequately describe the tone and touch responsiveness of this amp. I've
heard it called three-dimensional, but magical is more like it and that doesn't even do it
justice. Simply put, until you play one for yourself, no words will properly prepare you
for the experience.
|I opted for a bone stock
version - no mods, with the exception of the IEC power cord option and black alligator
head shell. Why mess with perfection?
|All I can add is this -
if you have not played through a SLO, you owe it to yourself to try one on for size.
Nothing else even comes close to the SLO.

|The 100 Watt SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE
set not only the standard, but the benchmark, for high-gain tube amp overdrive &
|While setting that standard (weve
been told) we created a modern classic. Unchanged in over twenty years, the SLOs
remarkable sound, award-winning innovative design, and flawless construction make it
simply the finest amplifier money can buy. And the SLOs tone, construction, and
reliability have made it the heart and soul of many of Rock, Metal, and Electric
Blues most creative and celebrated players. Its because of this that
youve been hearing the SLO 100 on your favorite records since 1987. From Clapton to
Van Halen, from Warren DeMartini to Lou Reed and from you to Mike Soldano himself,
the SLO is simply the players choice.
|The SLO-100 offers two channels, Normal and
Overdrive, each with independent Preamp gain and Master Volume controls. A footswitch is
also provided for effortless noise-free switching between the two channels. The Normal
channel has a Bright switch and a Clean / Crunch gain selector switch. Standard features
include a tube-buffered effects loop and a slave output. Bass, Middle, Treble, and
Presence controls provide the tone shaping. A rotary Impedance selector switch allows the
use of 4, 8, or 16 ohm speaker cabinets.
|As is standard with every Soldano amp, the
SLO features a specially-designed transformer built right here in the USA, and is
assembled using only the finest military grade components. We proudly stand by every SLO
we build, this is why we offer a transferable limited lifetime warranty.
