From Soldano –
“The REVERB-O-SONIC COMBO is a rugged, compact, and versatile two-channel 2×12 combo. Two 5881 power tubes provide 50 watts of power to drive two USA-made Eminence 12″ Legend V1216 speakers. The REVERB-O-SONIC COMBO is capable of creating a wide variety of sounds; from super-glassy surf tones, rich, warm blues edge to fat, grittyClassic Rock growl and much more – they’re all available simply by dialing in each channel’s independent Preamp gain and Master Volume controls. This 2×12 combo is extremely versatile and easy-to-use. Just plug in, dial a tone, and play – you can’t go wrong here! A footswitch is provided for effortless noise-free switching between the two channels. Bass, Middle, Treble, and Presence controls, as well as the tube driven six spring Reverb, provide the final tone shaping. Further tone enhancement can be had by utilizing the REVERB-O-SONIC’s tube buffered effects loop. This amp has two speaker jacks, so you can plug in an additional speaker cabinet if so desired.”

Some guitarists like the compact size and simplicity of a combo amp. The REVERB-O-SONIC is just that – a rugged, compact, and versatile 50-watt two-channel 2×12 combo with excellent reverb on both channels.
The Clean and Crunch channels are based on the Normal channel of the SLO-100, which uses a Clean/Crunch switch to select gain levels. On the REVERB-O-SONIC, these have been expanded into separate channels, each with its own independent Preamp Gain and Master Volume Controls. Rich, full reverb tone is provided by a spring reverb tank.
A line level series tube buffered effects loop is also standard in the REVERB-O-SONIC. Like all Soldano amps, this self-contained all-tube compo is hand-built in USA using only the highest grade components.
If you don’t need the ’over the top’ gain of the characteristic Soldano overdrive, and are looking for more of a classic ’high octane blues’ sound, this is the amp for you. It is a pro quality piece of gear. List price on these amps when new was $4500.
This Soldano Reverb-O-Sonic is in as new condition. It has been used but you can’t see any evidence of that – it has been well looked after. And it sounds the business – fat & punchy on both channels with lots of range to shape your sound. It takes pedals really well, with rich deep reverb on board. PLUS .… it’s dressed in stunning ruby red tolex, with no marks or blemishes. AND …. it goes up to eleven !
