Soldano

Description

Soldano’s Super Lead Overdrive 100 (SLO-100) set the standard for modern high-gain amplification. The Soldano Super Lead Overdrive 100 delivers upon the SLO’s legendary reputation in both appearance and performance but with the addition of some wildly popular, player-requested features.

It all started in 1987, when Seattle-native Mike Soldano built one of the first high-gain amp heads with searing harmonics and the perfect balance of gain, sustain and tight touch response.

The SLO completely changed what players came to expect from amps. They shelved their old amps and replaced them with this foot-switchable 100-watt monster, loaded with player-friendly features. While the amp’s drive channel found it backing up renowned rock guitarists like Mick Mars (Motley Crue), Warren de Martini (Ratt), and Howard Leese (Heart), its clear and tactile clean channel and bluesy crunch also made the SLO the first choice for non-metal stalwarts, such as Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, Warren Haynes, Gary Moore and Lou Reed to name a few. Today, the amp’s tone and steadfast reliability remains a go-to for thousands of guitarists around the world.

The Soldano Super Lead Overdrive 100 delivers upon the “SLO’s” legendary reputation in both appearance and performance but with the addition of some wildly popular, player-requested features. The SLO-100 continues to be hand-crafted in the United States using only the highest-grade components and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
