Soldano Hot Rod 25 rigs are selling VERY WELL !!!

Hey guys,

Hope you are enjoying your summer.  BCM has been very busy in our shop with guitar, amp, and effects demos and sales.  The Soldano Hot Rod 25 head and/or cabinet has been selling very well.  Matter of fact, we have sold over 30 of these rigs and I PERSONALLY own serial #002 of this amp.  Mike Soldano kept the final prototype and serial #001, but I had to have the first production 25. 

Today, I had 2 customers spend about 3 hours with my Hot Rod 25 head in my shop.  Both are coming back next week to purchase their own rig.

ALL PARTS are in stock at Soldano so you can get yours too, and QUICKLY.  Last one I sold shipped to its customer in 10 days.  

Think 6L6/WGC full size ouput tubes, 5 - 12AX7 preamp tubes, Post Master Volume tube bufferered Effects Loop, Impedance selector, dual speaker jacks.  50 watt trannys would to produce 400 plate volts versus 480 so you get the M Brown Sound.  DC heaters on the output tubes so it's whisper quiet.

This is your amp.  You can run this rig anywhere.  Shred at home at whisper volumes or push a 4x12" at an outdoor gig.  I've done both many times.

Give us a call.  We can set you up.

LunaStone Overdrive pedals IN STOCK NOW !!!

Blues City Music is proud to announce that we have acquired an authorized dealership with LunaStone guitar effects pedals.  LunaStone is based out of Copenhagen, Denmark, with facilities here in the USA.  They make some of the most dynamic and natural sounding overdrive pedals I've ever heard, but you might ask, well what experience do they have?  Great question.  I asked them this very same thing when I was introduced to them at the 2017 LA Winter NAMM show. 

Answer:  Most if not all of the executive management, distribution, research, and development etc., is handled by LunaStone associates whom were also at one time former employess within the T.C. Electronics company, up to and including CEO of US operations.  This means they totally understand all facets and logistical issues of a boutique manufacturing pedal company which has been very successful.

For you our customer, you will find six different styles of LunaStone overdrive pedals, from the micro pedal "The Pusher" all the way up to the multi faceted "Three Stage Rocket".  Everything you've ever dreamed about can be found in these pedals. 

Distribution from LA means that if we happen to be sold out of your pedal choice at that time, we can easily drop ship it straight to you from LA without delay.  I received my initial order of pedals within 4 days.

Blues City Music is your stop for boutique IN STOCK gear.  Give us a try, you'll be glad you stopped by.
