Purple Soldano Hot Rod 50+ Tube Guitar Amp Head.

No longer made, this was a Mike Soldano vintage rather than the newer stuff.

Great amp, basically the SLO lead channel and then a clean channel, the Hot Rod Plus is a 2 channel amp rather than just one channel like the regular Hot Rod model.

Amp is in very good condition, especially for its age. A few tolex marks here and there, but as you can see, very clean.

Sounds killer, like all Soldano amps.

Comes with footswitch, tho not the original Soldano one.

Grab this one while you can!

The Hot Rod 50 Plus is a 50 watt 2-channel guitar amp head, with independent preamp and master volume controls for each channel. The normal channel is similar to the SLO’s Crunch mode, with clean sounds available at lower gain settings. The Overdrive channel is identical to the SLO circuit and gives awesome sustain even at moderate settings. The tone controls shape the sound of both channels and are interactive-meaning each control will effect the others. This gives you the flexibility to dial in all the unique and subtle tones you’ve been searching for. The Soldano Hot Rod 50 amp head also has a global presence control that lets you add high end sparkle to both channels. Other features include a line level series effects loop, a speaker impedance switch and a channel footswitch.
