SLO-100 - Zikinf
SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE 100-WATT GUITAR (SLO-100)
AMPLIFIER MANUAL
Congratulations on your purchase of the legendary 100-watt Super Lead
Overdrive guitar amplifier. This self-contained amp head is the finest
hand-built, all-tube guitar amplifier available anywhere. Whatever your
musical style, the infinite tonal variations, ease of use, versatility, and
rugged, road-tested construction make it the ultimate guitar amp. It’s a
classic and an investment that will last a lifetime. In fact, the SLO-100 is
covered by a lifetime warranty.
The SLO-100 incorporates two independent preamps, Normal and
Overdrive, driven by four 12AX7/7025 tubes (five with the effects loop
option). It features individual preamp gain controls and separate master
volume controls with absolutely noise free channel switching. The
available options for the SLO-100 include a tube-buffered effects loop
and variable “slave” output.
The Normal channel offers a Clean/Crunch Switch. When set to clean,
the gain is cut, providing full, clean, undistorted warmth, which is
incredibly responsive and alive. When switched to crunch, the Normal
channel responds with higher gain and a tough, metal edged crunch.
The Bright Switch offers sparkling highs to the Normal channel adding to
its versatility.
Soldano products have a lifetime warranty on workmanship
(the SLO-100 warranty is transferable). Parts and labor are
warranted for ten years (excluding tubes, transformers,
damage, and normal wear and tear).
WARNING: NEVER OPERATE THIS GUITAR AMPLIFIER WITHOUT
SPEAKER(S) OR A SUITABLE “DUMMY LOAD” PLUGGED INTO THE
SPEAKER JACK(S). FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN DAMAGE
TO THE OUTPUT TRANSFORMER AND FAILURE OF THE
AMPLIFIER.
Operating Your SLO-100 Guitar Amplifier

4. Plug in the Power Cord. Turn the Power Switch ‘On.’ Allow thirty
seconds for the tubes to warm up. Connect a cord (either a speaker
cable or a guitar cord will work) from the Footswitch Jack to the
Footswitch box. If the light is not lit, the normal channel will be in
operation. If you are using the Effects Loop or Slave Operation, please
read the sections describing them thoroughly before continuing.
5. Plug your guitar into the Input Jack and turn the Standby Switch to
the ‘On’ position. Adjust the Master Volume, Preamp levels, and Tone
controls to obtain your desired sound. For best results when
switching channels, we recommend the Master Volume levels be set
as close as possible.
6. When shutting down, turn off both the standby and the power. This
can be done at the same time, as no waiting to cool down is
necessary.
EFFECTS LOOP OPERATION: Plug a cord from the Effects Send Jack
of the SLO-100 to the input jack of your effects unit. Plug another cord
from the output jack of the effects unit to the Effects Return Jack on the
SLO-100.
Note: If your effect has a switchable input or output, adjust the setting
to +4dB. Refer to the effect unit owner manual for specifics.
SLAVE OPERATION: The slave control is an adjustable low level output
taken from the output transformer to send the signal directly into a
mixing board or a stereo rack system. Speaker(s), or a suitable ‘dummy
load,’ must also be plugged in to the Speaker Jacks or the output
transformer may fail.
TUBES: Power tubes wear out. They should be checked and serviced
regularly and generally replaced annually. Our high grade preamp tubes
will often give years of trouble free service and need only be replaced
when necessary.
You may purchase Maximum Duty 5881 power tubes and 12AX7 preamp
replacement tubes directly from us for your amplifier.
Check our website for information on tube maintenance and how to
order replacement tubes (www.soldano.com).
