    Got tone?

    By FretnBrian

    from Alabama

    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!!

    awesome distortion sounds!

    By charles

    from Miami, Fl

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

    I've been playing 20 years. Also have a Twin and a Marshall (now up for sale). If I lost the amp I would definitely replace it. I'm sick of complicated amps - I will never trade versatility for ease of use again. You can't get a bad sound out of this amp!! I play straight thru it, just a little analog delay and wah, and I've never sounded better. The days of effects boxes are over!! I tried some of the Fender reissue stuff, and some bigger Marshalls. They're nice, but this amp has a different voice. It's more $$, but you can't put a price on a good time. And I'm having a good time. The part that really sucks is that you can't try this amp out in the store. It actually sounds run-of-the-mill at low volumes. You have to try it with a band behind you. If you're looking for a living room amp, go somewhere else. But if you play out on a regular basis with a band, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Great Soldano tone AND versatiliy

    By Dave-DNA-ecMLJ

    from Milwaukee, WI

    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!

    Can't beat it!

    By BlackinBluhmMusic

    from Denver, CO

    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!

    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.

    Soldano Decatone

    By A Lesser Paul

    from IL

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

    Very user freindly, very well built, and absoutely awesome on tone. Everything from spanky clean to warm clean, plexi Marshall to a hot-rodded (and I mean hot-rodded) JCM-800, to harmonic overdrive that cuts in a band and would make a Dual Rec. cry. I use it through a 412 straight cab with Celestion Vintage 30's in it and mic through a PA with a Sennhieser e609, and play a Gibson Explorer with stock 498R and 500T pups. I cannot be happier with this amp. Well worth it when considering there's no doubt this will last the rest of my life and the level of customer support Soldano gives. I was a little apprehensive at first of the shared eq, but it doesn't matter one bit because the channels are voiced so well together. Also has seperate channel volumes to keep the master maxed for total tonal output at any volume. (This told to me by Bill Sundt, co-designer of this amp with Mike Soldano!) He or Mike answers all calls and questions! Hand built in the USA, great tone, easy to understand, and accepts effects beautifully. (Through the tube buffered effects loop). The clean isn't Fender Twin Reverb clean, but is very useable for such a high gain monster. After all, if you want Fender clean, buy a Fender. If you like to rock, and rock WITH TONE while having fun doing it, buy a Soldano. You won't regret it.
