I have to say that most of my maps I use for recording or playing at home tend to be older Fender, Gibson and Vox stuff with the odd Gretsch, Dumble or Rickenbacker thrown in for good measure. That being said, for over 20 years (man, that's hard to fathom!) I have used an SLO-100 when I do tours or non-local gigs. When I got my first semi-high profile thing I managed to get my hands on it and I've taken it literally all over the world and have never had any issue aside from toobz and caps with it - and when I got it recapped it was more because it hadn't been more than it needing it. I have a couple other Soldano boxes as well, a 4x10 Reverb-O-Sonic that is kind of its own thing and one of the Hot Rod series. For a while I had two SLOs (one as a backup) but the backup literally never needed to be used so I pulled it out of my rig and would put a Plexi or Mesa or something in there for some variety. I have blown out three Mesas. I eventually sold my second SLO and got the Hot Rod and it's really nice. IMHO the Soldano is versatile. I mainly use the clean channel with a Klon, but I don't set it totally clean, although if you listen to Knopfler you can hear how good it can sound. I don't play metal but most of my touring has been pop rock kind of stuff and it excels at this. Many companies make great maps but IMHO if you're looking for something that sounds great and basically can survive most of what you can throw at it they're the best in the business. Anyone else using Soldano?
