Here are some cool pics from the Soldano factory visit I had this week. My BCM Face Book page has about 50 pics over there, but I didn't want to bore you here with them all.
The Tweed SLO is 90411. That was SRV's. The black SLO with masking tape IS #1. That is the final prototype he named MR. SCIENCE. The car is Mike's baby. It's a 1932 Model A. The museum picture shows Clapton's full stack chrome croc. covered SLO-100 that he used at the "Cream" Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. The "Bread Board" is the jig that Mike used to design the SLO-100. Enjoy.

Notice the radical EQ settings on Mr. Science , probably untouched since he last fired it up . Has the mids around 8+ , treble maxed , and the presence around 7+ . Now that's R-N-R and not being afraid to open up the EQ settings to make the amp bark and roar.
Not that far off from my settings:
OD gain=5 Bass=5 Mids=8 Treble=7 OD MV=5 Presence=8
I also use rear loaded M style 4X12 cabinets with greenbacks . Would love to hear Mr. Science fired up and with the old glass in it too.
