Variable Depth mod
Post by Ariel Pozzo on Feb 17th, 2004, 11:01pm

Hey, this is a GREAT forum!!! Nice to be here!!

Now, my first post: I have a HR100+ serial number 100069. I was wondering if anyone here knows how to decode Soldano serial numbers to know when my amp was made. I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the XL mod and I would like to add the variable Depth mod to it.
I emailed Soldano a few times but no answer yet...anyone here have the schematic for the variable depth mod? smiley

I can't help with the questions, but I'd like to welcome you to the forum. smiley
Glad to see someone else from South America around here. I'm from Brazil, btw.

I checked your site, pretty cool. Driskill guitars, eh? Fancy. cheesy
Cool gear. I'd like to know what you think of the Groove Tubes pre amp.
I'll check your songs later... 2:30am here! lipsrsealed

Regarding schematics, I think you can get them from Soldano. I had to email them twice to get an answer...
Sty1es is getting his HR100 modded by Bruce Egnater. He may be able to help you.

Hey man-

I'm having my HR100+ modded by Bruce Egnater...he's going to install his own custom "Density" mod, which by the description is pretty similar to the depth mod. However, Bruce's mod is a poweramp control, unlike the XL mod which is in the preamp. I'm not sure about Soldano's depth mod though....

The mod costs $100 (+ shipping if applicaple)...more than fair, IMO.

Oh yeah, by the way, I sent Soldano an email about a week and a half ago, and havn't gotten a reply yet. Someone mentioned that they are moving, so that may be why.
