Big performance in a small package.
The Soldano 44 is the brain child of Mike Soldano working with Lynn Burke of Blues City Music. Lynne encouraged Mike to develop a smaller combo-sized amp with 50 watts of power, a single 12" speaker, and reverb. The idea was to fuse Soldano tone and craftsmanship to create the ultimate gigging amp–a killer sounding, versatile workhouse that is more portable than a 50-lb. tube head with a 4x12 cab. And it worked: The 44 is extremely versatile and can get great blues tones with just the right grit, as well as a classic Nashville clean sound. The Soldano 44 features a volume boost activated by a footswitch.

Comments about Soldano 44 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
Oh man this amp is incredible. I bought one after I bought one to go with my Decatone. We're talking a small, very portable combo that is way loud.Killer crunch tone. Single channel, world-class reverb, and the tone is unparalleled. I love this amp in all of it's simplicity.This amp loves pedals. I put it through my Mesa 2x12 cab loaded with Celestion V30s and it's amazing.The only problem is when the gain is set at the highest ranges. It gets a little too buzzy. This is no problem because a light overdrive takes care of it. I set the gain to about 11:00 and use an overdrive to get me the high-gain stuff and it sounds incredible.It doesn't get that clean, but who cares. It's just like the crunch channel of an SLO. Fortunately it responds pretty well to the guitars volume control so you can get a pretty dynamic range of sounds from this amp.It's not super high gain but it has enough for rhythm and solo. Push it with a pedal and it can easily do hardcore metal.Amazing amp. Don't let the size fool you. It sounds HUGE!Soldano quality all the way. I'm very happy.
