Soldano Super Lead Overdrive (SLO-100)

Soldano 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.

From the Soldano Website:
The 100 Watt SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE set not only the standard, but the benchmark, for high-gain tube amp overdrive & distortion.
While setting that standard (we’ve been told) we created a modern classic. Unchanged in over twenty years, the SLO’s remarkable sound, award-winning innovative design, and flawless construction make it simply the finest amplifier money can buy. And the SLO’s tone, construction, and reliability have made it the heart and soul of many of Rock, Metal, and Electric Blues’ most creative and celebrated players. It’s because of this that you’ve 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 player’s 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.
