A stripped down 50W tube amp head that produces nothing but killer tone!

The Avenger 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head gives you pure distilled Soldano overdrive tone. Period. If you want the overdrive of the legendary SLO 100, and that's all you want, this is the amp for you: a 50-watt head with the SLO 100 overdrive circuit, and no channel switching or effects loop to complicate things. Stripped to the bone, this simplified signal path also improves dynamic response for a punchier sound.

High and low gain input jacks provide the option of using the full SLO lead circuit or skipping the first gain stage for a darker crunch. In addition to the preamp gain, bass, middle, treble, master volume and presence controls, a depth control is included for boosting low end, and a rotary impedance selector switch allows the use of 4, 8 or 16 ohm speaker cabinets. The amp uses 5881/6L6 power tubes, like the SLO.

At Soldano Custom Amplification, they obtain the best parts available and then spend the time to carefully assemble these parts by hand to create the highest quality and most reliable guitar amplifiers possible. Their attention to detail borders on the obsessive. They don't have an assembly line, nor do they subcontract subassemblies out to 'developing nations'. Every amp is crafted at their shop in Seattle, and each is wired, start to finish, by one technician.

    Comments about Soldano Avenger 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This head sounds awesome. Everything you want in clear defined rock and metal tone. I'm blown away everytime I plug in, and while my last amp seemed to get slightly mushy and loose punch at high volume, this thing just sounds better and better as you crank it. My bandmates commented the first day I got it that they could hear me through the mix, the good, the bad and the ugly : ) You will hear everything. Pretty dry sound, the EQ works pretty well to dial in tone.
    You simply have to hear it cranked (at least 3 on the volume) to get an idea of how good it is. The low end is pretty big, I'm looking for a better cab to handle it. It is the best low end I've heard, it is really punchy and sustaining. I think having huge high quality transformers has something to do with this. It is also super thick and full sound. Also, SCARY LOUD! Plenty of power, especially for 50 Watts.

    I used to play on a 5150 combo, and although that was a good, pretty inexpensive, good value tube amp, I don't miss it! They don't even compare in sound quality. Sooooo good. The Avenger is good for 80's metal, but I think you could also use it for modern stuff too.

    No clean channel, but I have no problem with rolling back the volume, it cleans up really nicely.

    Also, I called Soldano to ask a question about the head when I first got it, and they were super helpful and patient with me. A+ service.

    If this is the sound for you, and you really only want one channel at a time (it does have low and high inputs), a full, loud, chunky, defined tone, check it out. Plus, it's built in the USA.

    This is a 50 watt head.

    Comments about Soldano Avenger 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This is not a 100w head. I received it 2 weeks ago. It was the best sound I've ever heard. I did, however, return it and upgrade to the Hot Rod Avenger 100w which costs a little more, but actually is 100w, has an effects loop, and 2 inputs (low/high). The sound is identical. The 100w is not a whole lot louder than the 50w, but I'll take what I can get. These amps don't have to be driven hot to sound good. A monkey could come screw with your setting and it would still sound great. Leads jump out. No need for volume pedal boost. This is huge to me. I like to plug straight in with no crap on the floor.
