1988 Yamaha T-100 Soldano designed USA built $ 629|
Yamaha contracted Mike Soldano to design this amp for Yamaha USA this was before Soldano's SLO.... very similar design with very little difference except the price is about 1/3rd .....This cool little barn stormer of an amp is a 1-12" Combo with 100 watts rms and is a very well built and dependable all tube combo amp Marshall meets Mesa this is a great sounding amp! A little secret, that's not much of a secret. Before the SLO, Mike Soldano designed an amplifier for Yamaha. This T-100. pretty much the Same amp you can call the guys at Soldano, they will tell you about that its true. There is a $50 mod you can have them do to the amp to perfectly match the amp, but the tech at Soldano said that no one in their shop can hear the difference. "Choke Mod." The T-100 is the prototype for the SLO.
I had one for a long time. Absolutely was a great amp, and they can be found reasonably here at JVGuitars in combo form. Right on the back panel it says, "Designed by Mike Soldano."
You know the best tone I ever had was with that little bandmaster cranked to 10. Edward Van Halen, 1980, Guitar Player Magazine.
