The Soldano Lucky 13 50W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp has two channels — Vintage Clean and Hi Gain Overdrive — both of which share the Presence control.
The Soldano Lucky 13 is a 50-watt all-tube combo amp. It contains two 12″ Eminence Legend V1216 speakers that are known for a British sound, with warm midrange and highs, and tight bass. The Soldano Lucky 13 is powered by six 12AX7 tubes in the pre amp and two 6L6 tubes in the power amp.
This amp has two channels: Vintage Clean and Hi Gain Overdrive, and there is an included footswitch. The Vintage Clean channel has Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble, and Reverb controls. There is also a “Bright” switch for a quick boost of high end. The Hi Gain Overdrive channel has Gain, Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble, and Reverb controls. Both channels share the Presence control. The reverb is a tube-driven Accutronics three-spring that simulates a more natural ambiance.
One of the most significant testaments to the quality of Soldano equipment is the fact that each amp is handmade from start to finish by one technician, in their shop in Seattle Washington. The amp is a little heavier at 75 pounds, but the dual speakers and 50 watts of tube power can fill a pretty big room, and some of the weight comes from the top quality materials and solid construction practices that they employ.
