Ah, excellent! Thank you for clearing that up for me

People recommend them a lot. I haven't had any hands-on experience and I'm not too confident in some of the demos I've heard.


depends on the model i think. i've only tried the 50 watt head, and to my ears it sounds kind of soldanoey- kind of marshally (so fairly bright) but a fair bit smoother, more compressed and modern sounding (but still a sort of late 1980s high gain sound rather than a modern high gain sound).

the 50 watt 2x12 combo has a fendery clean channel i think and the crunch channel from the higher gain ones.

i think the lower gain 20 watter has a different voicing as well, but i could be wrong.

The Picovalve was based on the THD Univalve (but a little different)

The JCA20h is based on the Astroverb without the reverb (except the combo)

The JCA5212 is based on the Soldano Lucky 13

The rest are based on the Soldano HRA+ not the SLO

That I have no idea, but I do know it is supposed to have a good clean and mid gain

I have toured for years (17yrs) and honestly I have never seen anyone using a real Soldano live

I had a friend that had an SL60 head that was really nice, but GC and everyone has went crazy in pricing lately. I saw one recently for $2,100 and that is a $800 used amp at best

I thought I read that somewhere but I might be misremembering (the twin-style clean channel).

I have. Not many, but a few.
But a good portion of my early - mid 20's was spent in nightclubs on the sunset strip and other places hair metal bands congregated.
But man, I made shit tons of money selling coke.

Let's try to keep this to the initial plan of one response per question. To that end, open-ended or questions that need some discussion should get their own thread.

Also, if you don't know an answer, just don't post. This was meant to be a WTLT response thread, I don't want to have to make that a hard and fast rule because people respond with non-answers.

i have a korg pitchblack, and it has a power out jack, can i just use a cable from my isoblock supply to power an OD?

it has enough output to work without issue according to the manual. main question is if i can use that specific barrel plug cable.

My Boss TU-3 has the same feature.
I use that plug to power my Boss PS-5 Pitch Shifter.
Works fine as long as you stay under the maximum mA rating.

Or am I misunderstanding your question?

for some reason i couldn't phrase it right.

are the little jumpers (barrel plug on both side) that came with my pedal power supply ok to use to go from the power out plug on the tuner to an OD? i don't see why not, i just want to be careful.

Power out plug from power supply to a power out plug on the tuner?
Is that what you are saying?

Or, power out plug on power supply to power in plug on tuner, then power out plug on the tuner to your OD?
If so thats fine as long as you have the mA to handle it.
When in doubt, read the manual.

wall>adapter>korg pitchblack power in. power out (through a power cable with a barrel jack on each end)> OD.

i checked the manual before the post, my main concern was using the cable from the BBE supa charger (the thin lead with a barrel jack on each side). i just wan't to make sure it is safe.

i just want the OD power to be plugged into the tuner.

this cable http://www.voodoolab.com/shop/image...able_legend.jpg

Make sure the polarity is right as well with the mA and volts. Cable should be fine as long as your cable isn't reverse polarity.
