Awesome Soldano Hot Rod 50+ head in rare black and white boa with matching Soldano 2×12 cab.
(This item is located at our United States location)
With Mike Soldano retiring these amps and cabs are not being made any more and are becoming extremely hard to find. The black and white boa was probably the most popular of all the custom coverings that Mike offered and this is a great example with matching 2×12 cab.
Amp sounds tremendous and has new tubes. Everything is in killer condition. If you want an incredible sounding, collectable piece of Soldano history, this is a great one to pick up.
Get it while you can.
Classic American hot rods and guitar amps. In both cars and gear, pursuing the perfect look and performance can be time consuming and expensive. Where amplifiers are concerned, random tinkering doesn’t always produce perfection. The HOT ROD 50 PLUS gets you there right out of the box.

With circuitry based on the legendary SOLDANO 100w SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE, the HOT ROD 50 PLUS offers all the tonal range you want with all the mods you’ll ever need. And don’t be fooled by it’s 50 watt rating, this monster head packs more sonic firepower than you’ll likely need.

There are independent Preamp gain and Master Volume controls for each channel. Bass, Middle, Treble, Presence, and Depth controls provide the tone shaping.

All SOLDANO speaker cabinets are made with top quality 13mm and 19mm thin ply Russian birch plywood and feature solid single piece construction. There are no removable back panels or baffles. All joints are glued and nailed together. The grilles are attached with velcro and pull off for easy access to the speakers. Speakers are front-loaded and the cabinet front and back are braced internally for an extremely stiff, rigid box and tight, solid bass. The corners, side handles and jack plates are all steel, not plastic. Corners are available in either nickel plate or black powder coat finish. Our standard colors are Black, Purple, Red, Orange, Navy Blue, Regency (medium) Blue, Vintage Cream, White, and Boa (black & white snakeskin print). We offer many more custom-order colors, such as metalflake sparkle Naugahydes as well. Standard grille coverings are Black, Black Sparkle, Silver, and Oxblood. As with the cabinet covering, other custom-order grille coverings are available by request. We use USA-made Eminence Legend V1216 loudspeakers in all of our cabinets. We find this is an excellent-sounding, well-balanced speaker with a voicing that compliments our amplifiers beautifully. Cabinets are also available empty should you prefer to load your own speakers.
The SOLDANO 2×12 SPEAKER CABINET is a sealed back cabinet. Due to its large internal volume per speaker, this cabinet has extremely deep bass response and the “chug” normally found only in 4×12 cabinets.
