Soldano SLO guitar effects pedal

Soldano Super Lead Overdrive pedal

This pedal recreates the SLO-100 amp which is famous for being one of the most detailed-sounding high-gain guitar amplifiers of all time.

Here’s what they say:

Until now, it’s been challenging to capture the amp’s nuanced character in a pedal format. The new Super Lead Overdrive pedal changes that, with the perfect balance of gain, sustain, and touch response the SLO is known for.

High-gain legendary sound

In 1987, Mike Soldano created the now legendary Super Lead Overdrive 100-watt tube head. The SLO set the standard for modern high-gain amplification and nearly four decades later, is still one of the most coveted amps in history.

The SLO’s drive channel found it backing up renowned rock guitarists like Mick Mars (Motley Crue), Warren de Martini (Ratt), and Howard Leese (Heart), while the bluesy crunch channel made the SLO the first choice for non-metal stalwarts, such as Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, Warren Haynes, Gary Moore and Lou Reed, to name a few.

Crafted using the same cascading gain stages as the flagship amp, the SLO pedal is the perfect way to get that signature Soldano sound on to your pedalboard.

Controls

The SLO pedal front panel boasts the same controls for Gain, Volume, Presence, and a 3-band EQ as the 100-watt tube amp.

The side-mounted Deep switch nails the amp’s depth-knob low-end punch. These controls take you from harmonically rich crunch to some of the most famous high-gain in history.

Volume: Controls the total output volume
Presence: Filters the output’s high end
Gain: Adjusts the total amount of gain that is applied, turning this control clockwise will increase the amount
EQ Section: Classic Soldano three band EQ; adjusting each clockwise will increase the output of the relative frequency ranges
Deep: Adjusts the overall output low-end punch
