    Tone-Talk with Mike ongoing right now:


    -New transformers by Magnetic Compnents, as good or even better than DeYoungs they say.
    -New effects loop post MV. With level control. Bypass switch
    -Cabs will come with V30's
    -Sovtek 5881's
    -Channel switch on front panel.
    -Price will be less than before. $4k or most likely less according to Dave F.
    -Approx ship date, NAMM or earlier. 9-10 weeks possibly.

    Sexy peek from inside:

    Wow. I never realised they were up there in that price range.

    kind of surprised, I never thought those matched well with the Soldano voicing but I know a lot of people disagree.

    So was Mike himself when they tested cabs/speakers with it and they revealed his fave had V30's in it. :)

    If I heard right, you can order them with different speakers if you like.

    There are a few other takeaways I had (a lot of the questions were mine, which is neat).

    DC preamp heaters for low noise, with relay switching running from the DC heater supply.
    Same caps and pots as the Seattle Soldanos. Chassis mounted tube sockets and pots, same as before.
    Depth control is now standard.
    SLO30 is based on the HR25, but with the full SLO feature set and considerably cheaper than the 100. GTO OD pedal is coming back as a full-on 2 channel tube preamp pedal w/ tonestack.

    Wonder If they will make regular size 4X12's this time and offer cabs with a rear loaded speaker option .

    SLO and V30s work really well together. That's the Warren Haynes tone.

    After owning 2 soldanos, a clone and a couple jet citys, I came to the conclusion the V30s are the only speakers I really like with the soldano voicing.

    Those CDE orange drops are Chinese, different from the USA Mallory caps in Seattle SLO.

    The fact that it sounds "better" and less "spikey" with Vintage 30s suggests a darker sounding amp.

    What was the general consensus on SLO 100's speaker? Of course, except V30.

    the whole thing left me cold. Mike seemed relatively detached from the design process, he reiteraded several times he is retired while the guys at B.A.D. are redesigning the amplifier and that Soldano Amplification is closed. He goes sporadically and vets the design but isn't really involved to the point he didn't know many of the details... I don't know if I'd be temped to fork 4 grand for this, need to wait and see.

    They're the exact same CDEs that Soldano was using in Seattle.
