    Only downside on Ceriatone is the long lead time for a build, and they’re rare on the used market.

    Nobody sells them it seems, and if they do they want more than a new one! I just ordered a couple knowing I will be selling at least one. But at least with these I have no fear of sitting on it forever or being able to get all my money back.

    I checked with Nik. The SLO is still in the works, however they are so backed up they are ONLY shipping what they can right now. This is why I can't order my custom amp I wanted to try, but the King Kong may do it for me anyway. We were going to try making a complete 2 ch Chupacabra amp. As for the Molecular, it is a Cameron Atomica, not a Soldano.

    FWIW: (maybe nothing) but Randy at Phaez amps built me a low watt Mesa Dual rec clone, (which he claimed is an SLO rip off) Came out to be around 35w, I named it the "Nailbomb." Chassis alone cost me about $800, It's my favorite amp.

    Sourmash built me a headbox with no front panel and I made the panel myself, sort of a SLO/Single rec tribute.

    I can't afford a soldano. Always loved their tone. So, I bought two Jet City heads and cabs. The ones with the soldano name on on them and they are pretty close. Best thing is that each head cost me much less than an original soldano. These amps ( if you can find one) sound amazing to me. Great for metal, melodic metal, 80's hard rock and much more.
    You don't have to spend a ton of money on ney for a good sounding Amp.

    I see.

    Too complicated of an amp, that would not be possible done on turret boards like we do. Needs PCB designed very specifically for it.

    As a product, it will not be that attractive for us, business wise. There'd be a niche market for those who want it, but most wouldn’t want a 4 channel amp like that.

    Thanks!

    Nik

    Thanks for the email

    Sorry, nothing yet on the JVM

    As for SLO, we'd be releasing it soon, actually, within this year.

    Thanks!
