The 100 Watt SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE set not only the standard, but the benchmark, for high-gain tube amp overdrive & distortion.
This is Blues City Music's biggest selling SLO-100 amp. It's the ultimate home, live, or recording amp.
While setting that standard (we’ve been told) we created a modern classic. Unchanged in over twenty years, the SLO’s remarkable sound, award-winning innovative design, and flawless construction make it simply the finest amplifier money can buy. And the SLO’s tone, construction, and reliability have made it the heart and soul of many of Rock, Metal, and Electric Blues’ most creative and celebrated players. It’s because of this that you’ve been hearing the SLO 100 on your favorite records since 1987. From Clapton to Van Halen, from Warren DeMartini to Lou Reed – and from you to Mike Soldano himself, the SLO is simply the player’s choice.
The SLO-100 offers two channels, Normal and Overdrive, each with independent Preamp gain and Master Volume controls. A footswitch is also provided for effortless noise-free switching between the two channels. The Normal channel has a Bright switch and a Clean / Crunch gain selector switch. Standard features include a tube-buffered effects loop and a slave output. Bass, Middle, Treble, and Presence controls provide the tone shaping. A rotary Impedance selector switch allows the use of 4, 8, or 16 ohm speaker cabinets.
As is standard with every Soldano amp, the SLO features a specially-designed transformer built right here in the USA, and is assembled using only the finest military grade components. We proudly stand by every SLO we build, this is why we offer a transferable limited lifetime warranty.
Warren Haynes option is a bright cut switch on the Overdrive Channel and only works at pregain settings less than 4. When you lower the pregain setting, the bright cut is more apparent.
The Scoop option is a 420 +/- hertz cut to the Mids only on the Normal Channel when using Clean or Crunch.
The Depth option is a resonance control for frequencies below the Bass settings and is available on either channel.
1/2 power switch changes the amp to either 50 or 100 watts output.
Effects loop bypas switch is located between V3 and V4 preamp tubes on top of the chassis. It engages or disengages the effects loop to or from the circuit.
