    Default ? about Yamaha T50C, T100C

    Anyone know about these amps? The Yamaha T50C or the T100C. I believe these were designed by Mike Soldano and are the same thing as a Soldana SLO, am I right or wrong? Any info would be appreciated, a guy locally has one of each for sale and I am going to look at them, wants $400 for the 50 and $600 for the 100.

    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately, they are not the same thing.

    It may be the same circuit (or close to it, but so is the 5150 and the Mesa Dual Rec).

    The SLO has military grade wiring/components, etc. & DeYoung Hi-Fi proprietary transformers. The T50s/100s do not.

    Not to say the Yamahas are not good amps, but nowhere near a SLO. Maybe more the Hot Rod Series.

    I'd definitely take a look at them at that price.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    I think the yamahas actually used a large resistor in place of a legit choke. I'm pretty sure Soldano will mod them for a choke.

    Yeah Mike Soldano designed them in the late 80ís. Itís basically the SLO besides that it was manufactured by Yamaha and to save money Yamaha used a different reverb and a resistor in place of the choke. I own one of the t50c heads and itís an awesome amp. Iíve had to have some work done to the pots though and I also had the choke change out which didnít really make a difference.

    If you would please post some info so that I can reach the guy who has those amps though. I would like buy one of them. Which ever you donít want that is.
