New 2nd.
Post by nickyboy on Sep 16th, 2016, 08:28am

Well folks, I've owned the slo for 4 years and I love it.
I had no intention of buying another head...until my mate told me he was selling his Avenger 50.
He found it too gainy... and gave me the option of paying for it in two chunks. So I couldn't resist.

So this means I have the avenger 50, slo100, a 4x12 and a 2x12.

I really like the avenger...although a side by side comparison shows what a massive thump the slo has. I know the slo is 100 watts but it really feels like it moves more air.

I like that I can crank the avenger and I'd imagine that at smaller gigs i'll be able to open the avenger up - whereas I'd be making ears bleed with the slo.

I've yet to google the avenger s/n to check it's age but it has mercury mag transformers and is mint!

I loved the early avenger front plate...I wonder if I can get one...?

Sweet......not many things better than a good 50 watter....especially when it's a Soldano. Got any pics? cheesy
