Love this amp out of all the JCA's I have tried. The crunch channel can be backed of enough for a great clean tone (not Fender, Marshall) and the OD channel honestly screams. My favorite though is running a Fuzz or Rat into the crunch channel. Amazing amp.
Got it from a really sweet deal including the cabinet, 3-band eq, two preamps (clean/crunch and overdrive), has a great clean tone which can go to AC/DC kind of crunch with some smart knob tweaking, also the famous soldano overdrive tone, which is not exactly my cup of tea, but it's great nonetheless. 2 thumbs up!
Designed by Soldano - made in China. Great amp - usable right out of the box. Uses the same lead channel as the SLO100 (apart from a few values). Footswitchable channels with a very usable EQ.
Can be known to be biased "cold" upon shipping, making it sound a little lifeless and harsh. Don't despair (or sell it) - if so simply re-bias and you can also add a depth mod (ala SLO100) and can get quite close to that iconic SLO sound.
Great value if you can find one, I'll be keeping mine.
