It’s Silver Anniversary time! Yep, that’s right – on April 1st, 2012 Soldano Custom Amplification turned 25, celebrating a quarter century of building the world’s finest guitar amplifiers. To commemorate this occasion, we are pleased to introduce the SOLDANO HOT ROD 25. Just like the HOT ROD 50 PLUS and HOT ROD 100 PLUS, the preamp circuitry of the HOT ROD 25 is based on the legendary SOLDANO 100w SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE. It has a unique power section which utilizes two 5881 power tubes and a filter choke in the power supply – two features usually found only in higher powered amps – that enable this compact little 25 watt head to deliver much tighter bass and punchier low end than most other amps in its class.
The HOT ROD 25 also features a tube-buffered, post master volume effects loop and effortless channel switching via foot switch between the Normal and Overdrive Channels. There are independent Preamp gain and Master Volume controls for each channel. Bass, Middle, Treble, and Presence controls provide the tone shaping. A rotary Impedance selector switch allows for the use of 4, 8, or 16 ohm speaker cabinets.
