question what amp would you play if soldano didn't exist?
« Thread started on: Jan 18th, 2008, 1:49pm »

For me probably a Bogner Ecstasy or back to my old Marshall Anniversary LM. Or maybe a Cornford.

Of course if there had been no Soldano the course of rock amp history would probably be different... maybe that's the subject of another thread!

Cheers.

Probably a Splawn, VHT, or Diezel

But now that I think about it... I would probably still be lost, searching, and unsatisfied for who knows how long if I hadn't come across the Soldanos.

Every high gain amp I played, during my search that eventually led me to Soldano, didn't really to it for me. I'd would have to hit the stores again and go back to playing everything I could.

If you're talking low-gainer amps......I would love to have a early sixties Deluxe Reverb or another Twin Reverb from the same era. A 12000 series Plexi would be cool too.

'Course the amp I use now, a '66 Fender Bassman, as back-up to the Soldano still raises the hair on the back of my neck too. It's no high-gain, crunch monster like the HR, but it's got plenty of tone.

Boosted JCM 800 I think .
Or maybe a THD.

Or one of each!

Actually I could play through a Bogner if they would make a high gain single channel amp. I'm not a big fan of amps with lots of knobs.

Egnater MOD 50. Hands down.

Bogner XTC is also great though and Cameron has potential if he can get his act together.

Wizard Modern Classic 50. One day I will own one. Good enough for Malcolm Young, good enough for me. Apparently they're like an awesome Plexi on the 'clean' channel and soldanoesque on hi gain.. I could handle that.

If Soldano did not exist, I would not know how great the SLO sounds anyway. huh

That being said, I would probably still be playing my '64 Fender Super Reverb. It no where near sounds like my SLO, but with the volume on 10 & a Klon boost, it is a tone machine. I would possibly go back to a Dr. Z Route 66 (also boosted with the Klon of course).

If I ever hear that Soldano is going out of business or selling out, I'm going to buy about twenty SLO-100's because you know those babies would later be worth mega bucks.

Hmm.
Talking of "high-gain" amps...
I've been through many "high gainers", and would have to do another search and try out something new.

So, if the SLO would suddenly not exist, my first step would be to go back to my old Marshalls. Then get a killer OD to push the front end of an old plexi.
I guess I could live with the "next best thing" for a while. wink

If I had never heard the SLO, I would have probably settled on a Bogner Shiva and saved myself some money. That being said, I still have my old JCM-800 with a Barber Direct Drive pushing the front end that still sounds great, just not an SLO. If I had to settle on the Bogner, I'm sure I would have constantly been looking for more. The Cornford Richie Kotzen model sounds absolutely beautiful, but costs more than an SLO and I still prefer the SLO!
