Get Soaring Lead Guitar Tones With The Soldano SLO-30 Custom Super Lead Overdrive 30W Tube Head
Onboard the SLO-30, you’ll find the same Normal and Overdrive channels - including independent Preamp (gain) and Master controls - that we've all come to expect from the SLO name. Even the Normal channel’s mini voicing toggle switches are present and accounted for. Turn the amp around, and you're greeted by a tube-buffered FX loop and variable slave output, just like the original.
Historically, one of the most popular SLO "mods" is the addition of a DEPTH control to the amplifier's power section. The Depth control is now standard on the SLO-30. The combination of the Depth and Presence controls provides a powerful EQ section that goes well beyond a typical tone stack, enhancing the tonal possibilities of the amp’s sonic character.
Improved Noise Floor
The new SLO-30 features modern grounding, a DC based filament circuit and circuit separation to avoid crosstalk between the channels resulting in an excellent signal-to-noise ratio without altering the amp’s pure amp.
Versatile & Transparent Effects Loop
The newly designed ultra-transparent tube-buffered effects loop handles anything from vintage pedals to high-powered rack units.
Front Panel Channel Switching
Players familiar with the original SLOs will be elated at our inclusion of an onboard channel-select toggle switch. Perfect for applications such as studios, where you don’t want to rely on a footswitch.
Handcrafted In the USA
Just like Soldano’s flagship amplifier the SLO-100, the SLO-30 is created to be the best. That’s why each one is handcrafted in the US, using the finest military-grade components. If you want to add the SLO’s groundbreaking voice to your rig without the size and ground rattling power of the 100-watt version, the Soldano SLO-30 is the amp for you.
With Soldano's transferable limited lifetime warranty, they proudly stand by every SLO they build.
