^So that right there is the 5E3? And you're saying your post is actually two seperate ODSs?

Edit: Nvm, I got your previous post sorted. What is that right there, then?

There are actually two ODS' there. An 80s low plate non-HRM and an 80s high plate HRM.
I also threw in a Tweed (5E3) Deluxe at the end.


damn, thank got i am not actually keeping track of all those. you have some pretty stuff there, is there an end to it in sight? and you do like making us figure it out don't you. i am paying more attention (instead of, you know, like staring at the sun and going blind) and all those last shots look like the same amp. i gotta be careful with you.

Look at the caps on the first couple pics you'll spot a major difference. On the last couple the tubes are horizontal to the chassis. I didn't spot it at a glance but now that I know its pretty obvious.

yeah, it was pretty obvious once he said it. once you pay attention it was real obvious. but i just 'identified' all of them with the one visible face plate the first time.

edit: btw CECamps(aka Craig) has a demo track of his suckerpunch on his profile. you guys should check it out. lots of promise there. he might even evetually make a demo with lots of distortion in there for the rest of ya.

and kurt's dumble clone is amazing, i am sure it sounds as good as your hankey, but he really went the extra mile on the front plate and all.

Mine does work, but it's quite far from finished.

^still tweeking around like Howard i suppose, no?

Yeah. Besides tweaking, I still have these things to do:
-add relay(s) for footswitchable channels
-decide what else should be footswitchable (boost? reverb? mid boost? etc)
-add reverb (I have most of the parts, but I'm putting it off for a while, since it requires some major surgery); then tweak it
-figure out what do with the last remaining preamp tube. Buffered effects loop is an option, but I don't know if there will be room for the circuitry.
-front and back faceplates

When that's all done, I'll do some reliability mods. For example; hotglue most/all components and wires; add heatshrink to most wires; maybe add a fan to cool the 'hotspot' near the power transformer and power tubes.

This may easily take another year.

I think it's a Lucky 13. They're all practically the same circuit anyways.

Layout's pretty different, but the circuit is similar. The overdrive channels are exactly the same except for the brand of parts they use IIRC. The clean channel and transformers are where the big differences are.

It's the combination that you see in MC's picture. The build quality is awesome. The amp literally hasn't changed in 20 years.

I mean I dunno if that's a good thing or not. I could do with a few or 12 more gain stages. But ya excellent board. I was just wondering if only the SLO100s are still built like that and everything else Lucky 13, Avenger, Deca are built with the newer pcbs

You're right. For some it is, some it isn't. I think that's why Mike expanded the line based on the OD circuit. Most people liked the basic sound but wanted a bit more flexibility, hence the Decatone. From what I've seen, he tends to experiment more with other amps and leaves the SLO alone. He knows that if he changed anything people would start saying the old SLOs were better and that his best work was behind him and all that BS.

ya definitely. I love'd his interviews with jet city on their youtube. Him and Andy Marshall are the craziest people. Real life mad scientists. I'm gonna return that lucky 13 and grab an avenger I think. Clean tones does not a soldano make.

Agreed. Both know how to do a PCB amp right. And I've never been a fan of Soldano cleans. They're acceptable and that's about it. The only thing is on the real SLO the Normal channel has clean and crunch and the crunch mode of that channel is my favorite sound from Soldano.

Trying to hide what he has cloned, eh?

Have you fiddled with the trimpots yet? It's a TMB stack for the OD channel.
