I played a Soldano Reverb-O-Sonic amp yesterday that I'm thinking about picking up but I wanted to do some research (I was very tempted to just walk away with it). I've tried to find this particular amp on the Soldano website, eBay and Gbase with no luck. The one pictured on the website and the ones I saw on ebay were not constructed the same. The major difference was that the one I looked at had top mounted controls and I can only find ones that have front mounted controls. Also, the one I looked at had metal handles on the sides and the only pix I can find have a handle on top. The cab is larger too and looks exactly like the 2x12 extension cabs (metal handles). I'm wondering if this was a special order with the larger sized 2x12 extension cab to accomodate the extra space needed to top load the amp or maybe it is an older model? Hope my explanation is not confusing? Any ideas?
