Soldano caused a stir back in 2020 when it downsized its much-admired SLO-100 head into a new 30-watt format, the SLO-30. Almost immediately, guitarists started requesting a combo option and now the US tube amp manufacturer has given in to demand, debuting the SLO-30 Combo.

The name is not that imaginative, we’ll grant you. However, the same uncompromising all-tube design that won fans on the SLO-30 build is faithfully adhered to on the new model, with five 12AX7 tubes in the preamp and two 5881/6L6 tubes in the power section.
