Soldano Amplifiers & Effects
Looking to build up a towering stack of tone? If so, consider starting with the Soldano Avenger Amplifier Head. Single-channel with no effects loop, its barebones design makes things really straightforward. The result is pure tone, pushing the legendary overdrive of the SLO 100 through a set of 5881/6L6 power tubes. When you want an amp that's no frills and all bite, the Avenger absolutely delivers - and it works with 4, 8 and 16-ohm speaker cabinets, so you can make this beast howl through any drivers you like.
Of course, if you do want an amp with more features, the original SLO 100 can't be beat. This is one of the most sought-after amplifiers anywhere, and it's been put through its paces by guitarists like Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Eddie Van Halen and Lou Reed. The overdrive channel is just the beginning of what this classic has to offer: its sustain, jumps and tone (supported by four 12AX7 tubes) are all equally unbelievable. If you want to rock out on an amp that literally changed the industry, this is your chance.
Maybe you're searching for something a bit more low-key than a full stack. In that case, Soldano's combo amps are the way to go. Take the 44 1x12 Tube Guitar Amp for example; this compact screamer features a 12" Eminence Legend driver backed up by five (count 'em: five!) JJ12AX7 tubes. Blues City Music's Lynn Burke had a hand in the design of the Soldano 44, and the collaboration definitely created a winner.
The Avenger, SLO 100 and Soldano 44 are only a few highlights from the amazing lineup of amps and cabinets you'll find here, so go ahead and take a look at all that Soldano has to offer. Just try not to get any drool on your screen (though nobody will blame you if you do).
