You people have some cool stuff

 

I have a Greg Bennet Electric Guitar

 

Boss ME-20 Processor

 

and a Cheap Marshal amp, I guess it costed me around $100 when I bought it 8 years ago


Izzy should make a band of his own, Axl can help on the vocals, Slash can do some guitar stuff, Duff can do something with the bass and Steven can be on the drums and can call themselves Guns N' Roses.....Oh wait....

Alright.... without further adieu:

 

Spoiler

 

I'm calling this the tone tower!  :lol:

 

It's a Soldano Avenger, 100 watt. I didn't great a lot of time to play with it, just 30 minutes or so, but it's awesome. Single channel, dual input, no FX loop. Bare bones. The seller told me it was the 50 watt version, but I opened the back to inspect the state of the amp, and there were 4 5881's, so it's definitely the 100 watter. And the fact that on the back of the amp it has a "100" written next to the serial number.

 

Not sure if I want to retube, currently it's all Tung Sols in it, 5881's and 12AX7's. I did not like Tung Sols with my Marshalls, but this is a different beast. It sounds freaking great though, great high gain tone, it's my first Soldano, but I can hear the Soldano sizzle and sweetness. It doesn't really need any pedals for tone shaping/more gain, but I did use a TS9 a bit as a clean boost to get it into serious metal territory.

 

The best part, I paid 3 digits for it..... the guy needed it moved fast! It was a fair bit under $1000, which is a sick deal for this head in this condition. Not sure what year it is and I don't think Soldano's serial numbers follow a specific formula, but I'm going to call tomorrow to find out what year it is, and whether it has the Mercury, O-Netic, or DeYoung output transformer.

 

I'll try to get some clips next week of this head and the Old Bitch, proper SM57 clips. Though no fancy interface, just a Tascam handheld connected to the SM57.

Nice the ME20 seems like it has some cool stuff in it. I only have nice gear because I put gear above food, shelter, clothes, etc. in my list of expenses.  :lol: Seriously though.

 

But I still love my Roland MicroCube, they're $125 new, I've had mine for 10 years, and I still haven't played a solid state amp I like better.

Nice score! I never played a Soldano but all the demos I've heard sound great, a different flavor of the Marshall tone. 

Many great players used the SLO100 (Lynch, Gary Moore, Mark Knopfler...) which is an amp I keep an eye on.

Bring those demos!

Yeah the Avenger and Hot Rod circuits are both supposed to be slightly different versions of the SLO lead channel. There's some debate though as to how much overlap there actually is, especially considering the SLO uses custom transformers, which are rarely found in the Avenger and HR, which usually have Mercury. Not that those sound bad. Just less SLO-like, which I don't really care about, as long as it sounds awesome I'm cool with whatever's in it.

 

I can't say I like it better than the Old Bitch, but I really think I like it just as much. We'll see after the honeymoon phase.  :lol:

Replaced the Black Strat I've bought 3 weeks ago for a 60 years anniversary Tele. The twang and tone of this thing is remarkable, i've never really thought I'd want one and it looks cool.
