Soldano SLO-30 Guitar Amplifier Head (30 Watts)

The SLO-30 captures the classic Soldano SLO sound at volumes optimized for today's players. This 30-watt head includes a footswitch for channel selection.

The 30-watt Soldano Super Lead Overdrive (SLO-30) sings and roars with the same voice of its iconic bigger brother, the SLO-100. It's a harmonically rich character that remains at the forefront of modern high-gain electric guitar amplification. But this 30-watt, all-tube head is optimized to today's studio and stage applications.

Onboard the SLO-30, you'll find the same Normal and Overdrive channels -- including independent Preamp (gain) and Master controls -- that we've all come to expect from the SLO name. Even the Normal channel's mini voicing toggle switches are present and accounted for. Turn the amp around, and you're greeted by a tube-buffered FX loop and variable slave output, just like the original.

Depth control:

Historically, one of the most popular SLO "mods" is the addition of a DEPTH control to the amplifier's power section. The Depth control is now standard on the SLO-30. The combination of the Depth and Presence controls provides a powerful EQ section that goes well beyond a typical tone stack, enhancing the tonal possibilities of the amp's sonic character.

Improved Noise Floor:

The new SLO-30 features modern grounding, a DC based filament circuit and circuit separation to avoid crosstalk between the channels resulting in an excellent signal-to-noise ratio without altering the amp's pure amp.

Versatile & Transparent effects loop:

The newly designed ultra-transparent tube-buffered effects loop handles anything from vintage pedals to read more high-powered rack units.

Front panel channel switching:

Players familiar with the original SLOs will be elated at the inclusion of an onboard channel-select toggle switch. Perfect for applications such as studios, where you don't want to rely on a footswitch.

Just like Soldano's flagship amplifier the SLO-100, the SLO-30 is created to be the best. That's why each one is handcrafted in the US, using the finest military-grade components. If you want to add the SLO's groundbreaking voice to your rig without the size and ground rattling power of the 100-watt version, the Soldano SLO-30 is the amp for you.

With a transferable limited lifetime warranty, Soldano proudly stands by every SLO they build.

"Great amp but terrible shipment."

Overall: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Good: First and foremost, this is an incredible amp with great rich harmonics and gain.The So-so: The Overdrive channel is very noisy; you will need a Noise gate for sure.The Bad: The white front of the amp looks kind of cheap and at $3k it should be much better. The Ugly: The top of the amp had a white scratch on it and 3of the controls had ink on them from the document sheet the was stappled together and looked like it been through the wars. The Bottom line: While it is possible the amp was a demo and or used at some point, it sure looks like little care went into the packaging or checking that everything was correct. I think both Soldano and zZounds need to do a better job in in checking what is being shipped. I will keep the amp because it sounds the way I want but I am on the fence about buying it again because the lack the quality control in the shipment.
