Expensive, but....

Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

Man...this thing rocks. Very expensive however. I got it even though I could not afford it. My wife is very proud. Let me tell you I have absolutely no regrets, because this thing sounds better than any amp I have ever had the chance to hear anywhere. I run it through a Kustom-custom shop 412 with Vintage 30's. Tonal bliss. I gave it a 4.5 on the features because it lacks reverb which would seal the deal for best amp on earth if it had it. 5.0 on the value becasue like they say you get what you pay for. It's built like a tank...I don't think you could destroy it if you threw it as far as you could. And the attention to detail is crazy-amazing. NOTHING out of place or wrong on this baby. Three channels, perfect. The clean channel is awesome for such a high gain amp and the effects loop is user friendly so it's easy to add a pedal to it like reverb or delay. The crunch channel is better than any crunch I've ever heard, with great distortion that is harmonically rich from 1 to 11. Yes the knobs go to 11. Like a JCM 800 Marshall on steroids. Balsy blues to enough gain to please most metal heads on this channel alone. And the overdrive channel, forget it Mesa, Marshall, VHT, Engl, etc....you lose. Just super rich sounds out of this channel with note to note defintion with the preamp gain at 11. Hard to describe the distortion sound....it's all Soldano and really does not sound like any other amp. Plus the customer support is first rate...an actual person will answer your calls and emails and they actually know what they are talking about. Overall, this is expensive at first glance but if you think about it it's cheap in the long run if you never have to buy another amp because your tone quest ended here like me. And I'm sure this will last more than a life time. My kids will most likely have this someday as will my grandkids. One more thing....this comes with a footswitch that is built just as well as the amp. It's all heavy gauge steel and came with a lifetime warranty Hosa cable. And as for the one year warranty on this amp, Soldano says they are liberal with it and if you happen to have something go wrong with it and it's their fault, they will fix it even if it's out of warranty. Try to get that somewhere else. Hand built made in America quality....can't beat it.

Decatone Full Of Great Surprises

By Yngwee

from Houston, TX

Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

So I bought one of these over the Internet, not really knowing how they sound. When it came in and I unpacked it, I could tell straight away that this thing was the best build quality. Man, Soldano builds them the best.So the first thing I did was check out the clean channel and man that was the first big surprise. Oh it sounded so damned good. Fenders would be jealous of it. No kidding, the cleans are THAT good!Then I got to the crunch channel. You know how people say that Soldanos sound like you wish Marshalls could, well that was exactly my first impression. The most awesome crunch channel you can find.Boom, then the third channel. Oh man, high-gain bliss.This amp comes with 3 bright switches, presence (sparkle), depth (lows), and a shared EQ. Let me tell you, there is absolutely NO reason to worry about a shared EQ. I don't know how Soldano does it but it just works perfectly.I keep the bright switches on all the channels all the time. I use a 2x12 cab loaded with Celestion V30s and it sounds incredible.This amp is incredible and probably the best kept secret in amps. I thought I would still crave an SLO but this amp killed that craving. I've found my sound and I love it.

Got tone?

By FretnBrian

Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

Needed an amp that would cut through the mix. The Decatone has done that! Everything you have read is TRUE! This head has fantastic tone and is very durable. How many amps offer a lifetime warranty?? I play in a 80's type cover band. The 3 channel feature is what I was looking for. The Decatone does not get that shrill sound many Marshall's have. The amp is unforgiving, you will learn to play better because each note is heard. I bought this amp without ever hearing it. All music stores seem to carry is $300 multi simulators. I checked out a few Boogie's, they were not for me. I narrowed it down to Bogner and Soldano. Took the chance...and am VERY pleased!!Features I have given it a 4. I base this on one set of 3 EQ parameters that work on all three channels. For this price, you'd expect to see independent EQ's for each channel. However, it works!! The amp could have no EQ, it's that good. Also, you might expect to see on board Reverb. Funny thing is hat the head sounds better with less effects. Which brings me to the effects loop. This is tricky...regular pedals do no run well in the loop. I will totally drain the tone. The solution for me was to add a TC electronic Nova System. You need the +4db for the loop. I'm no expert on the science of why...I just know regular pedals rob the tone. Value - Without asking, I have had 3 sound men in the last month tell me the tone is great. Nuff said.Overall I would absolutely buy again if needed!!

Best Amp Ever

By AARON-7V3pB

from Bismarck, ND

Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

I have played this amp for 4 years and it is the best sounding amp I have ever heard. I have heard AC 30s but you have to crank them, they blow marshalls out of the water. This amp sounds great on all channels at all volumes. Whatever style you want to play it will work. I play mostly rock, but it sounds good for hardcore, blues, and almost anything else you want. BUY this and you won't buy another amp again.

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    After years of not having the chance to play a Soldano, I found one used in a local shop. It was AMAZING the complexity of its tone and its range of voices sold me. Too bad the price drove me away. If I have the money I will seek out one of these amps someday.

    Quite a step up...

    By Kendall Weaver

    from Hendersonville, NC

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    After coming off of several "name brand" amps I decided to look into something a bit different, and it's quite the decision of a lifetime. Too often high end amps are rated according to what other amps they sound like, in this case the Decatone sounds like a Soldano. Rich distortion, thick cleans, note definition with the preamp gain at 11. It has a shared EQ for the three channels, but that's not a bad thing. All channels are voiced close enough together that channel switching is never a musically harsh transition. I love the adjustable impedance and the variable effects loop, but the big issue is the depth control: adjustable bass response with the turn of a knob. I should also mention that this thing is built like a tank.My advice to anyone looking at one is not to play it until you have some money saved up, it's addictive and you'll want one.

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    I don't own this amp, but I wish I did! My teacher uses this amp and he always said it was a great amp and he wasn't lying. My friend just purchased one and I played on it and it blew me away. Every note comes out, tapping comes out beautifully, and it is loud! This amp is a must have if you want great tone. It may put a big hole in your wallet, but it is well worth it! This amp blows any Marshall, Mesa, Randall amp and makes them sound like a cheap amp you buy at a pawn shop.

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    I have owned mine for at least 7 years and I still love it. I toured HARD with it for the first few years. Didn't even have a road case for it and it never let me down. I have toured the Soldano factory and seen the way these are built. ( like tanks ) The tones out of this amp are amazing and the EQ is so smooth and accurate. Sure its expensive but you will never have to buy another head as long as you live! It sounds best through a soldano cab but I use mine through a marshall and it still rocks!

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    I fell in love with Soldano tone when they released the Avenger head about 10 years ago. The Decatone is a great do-everything head with more options then the higher priced SLO. This head has the SLO sound, is footswitchable to clean, and has an added boost channel for soloing, not just a button.All boutique amps are pricey, but Soldano is rather reasonably priced compared to high-end Marshall, or other small companies. And Soldano builds these by hand. Even the effects loops are all-tube!

    Best/Last amp you'll ever buy

    By River-qfaBh

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    This amp is amazing, you will absolutely love it. I've owned my Soldano Decatone now for about a year and can say it is the best sounding/performing amp I've ever owned or played through. Dont let the price push you away, you get what you pay for with this amp. Until you play through one of these, it cant be fully apprecited. Do yourself a favor, and check one out!Seriously... amazing amp. I've owned 3 different marshalls, a laney, 2 crate amps, one roland, and played through about every imaginable combination of tube/solid state amps out there (including hybrids and rack pre-amps)This is the best and last amp you'll ever buy.

    Soldano makes some of the best engineered and tonally superb amps. The price isn't cheap, but this amp can stand head to head with a lof of botique amps that go for a lot more.

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    Very good amp. All 3 channels very usable and sound very good. Can be a bit buzzy in the low end at times, but the amps eq works well to cure that and the overdive is excellent and the clean good. Good overall value, it even has a depth knob for some real thumping lows.

    One of the best head you can buy

    By lanesblitz

    from Genoa Italy

    Comments about Soldano Decatone 100-Watt Triple Channel Amp Head:

    Not many features but it is an extremely well balanced instrument. I feel the lack of a spring reverb. Talking about the sounds you can get they are endless and all good, anyway the basic three are: Channel 1 (clean) sounds like a Fender twin (cranked), the clean in this channel is far superior to any other HI Gain head out there. Channel 2 (crunch) a fantastic singing, creamy crunch, you can record an entire blues album with this channel alone. Channel 3 (overdrive) SLO-100 overkill but more flexible.
