Drewiv is probably sick of hearing me say it...but I really love this Slodano module. Pete did an incredible job with this one. I'd still be pretty happy with the MTS series if this were the only module offered...that's coming from a guy with 30+ modules. Great job Pete.

Well, my love for this module played a big part in my decision to go out and get a Soldano SLO100 a few months ago. Although the SLO edges out Pete's mod...it is not by a lot. In fact, I think I will be recording (direct) with Pete's mod instead of the SLO100. I could certainly live with either tone.

Some observations :

a) the Slodano, like the SLO100, likes the gain between 6-7.
b) The Slodano does a pretty good job of cleaning up when the volume is rolled down on the guitar. It might not be quite as good as the SLO100 here...but you have to be splitting hairs to complain about the difference.
c) the SLO100 is a little quieter, though the Slodano is not bad at all.
d) The Slodano has a more "normal" eq. I leave the mids flat and give a slight boost to the lows and highs. Whereas, on the SLO100 I have to crank the bass, leave the mids flat, and cut the highs a lot.
e) Both do a great job of maintaing note definition at high gain...which is VERY important to me.
f) both do a great job of "thumping" some palm muted notes...another important thing to me.
g) both just "cut though" like mad.

I've actually considered talking to Pete about building me a 50 watt 1x12 combo amp with his single channel Slodano circuit in it...something for smaller gigs, rehearsals, ect.

Bottom line is : if you have only $300, get Pete's mod. If you have $3000, get the SLO100 AND Pete's mod.

How does the Pete mod stack up against the Salvation Salvado? Do you have any experience with that particular mod. I would like to get the best sound possible. I really like the midrange of the SLO100 it cuts and the lows sound so sweet palm muted. I got a Gigmods Twin a while back and it sounds absolutely clear and big. I have been looking for that perfect SLO tone. You seem very confident in the Pete SLO.

Well, I have the Salvado and Jerome has the Slodano. We have yet to put them up head-to-head and have been meaning to do this for some time now. Hopefully sometime soon (maybe after the holidays) we can get this done and report back.

Yeah, we need to get together to do that comparison. I've heard a lot of great things about the Salvado also.

We can do a lot of fun stuff. We'll have to get that practice spot for a couple extra hours next time and do some head-to-heads with a lot of gear we have. Salvado v Slodano v SLO100. Mamba v Cobra. Anyone have a JCM800 that we know?

I'm trying to push Randy to sell his Dual Recto head and get a JCM800 but I'm not sure if it will happen before then. I'll try my best though!

It would be awesome to hear the Soldano mods up against an actual Soldano, that's for sure!

I'm now finally getting around to learning how to use the Ecstasy. So we can do an Ecstasy vs XTC also. I did just recently pick up a JCM800 1x12. It's supposed to be the same amp/preamp as found in the 2203. If we run it into a 2 or 4x12, we can get a taste of the JCM800.

You guys are all from Chicago, so this is a doable thing. Cool...
You guys should get together and jam it up. I'm totally looking forward to your guys results. Sounds like a great time. Very Happy

We've all gotten together once before. Trying to get it together for another run. We had intentions of doing more amp and module checking, but it just turned into a big jam session. Which was a blast. We do have every intention of getting together and getting these comparisons done. Between us all, we have a lot of neat toys. Very Happy

I would certainly love to hear a more thorough clip of the Slodano in action Very Happy Maybe dial it in for some thrash, dial it down for some Clapton tones, etc. Smile
