This is the legendary Super Lead Overdrive tone built in our 20 watt chassis and transformer set. Designed in Seattle, the preamp is a spot-on recreation of the 1987 high gain SLO benchmark used by countless pros. Improvements made are replacement of the original's antiquated channel switching with modern relays, heater routing to reduce noise, and integration of all components to a single PCB.
The harmonically rich, touch responsive and smooth high gain of the original is here. Assembled in Northern California from US-made and imported parts. Each amp is built one at a time and hand-serialized.
Because we use the same acrylic overlays for all amps, optional switches are not labeled on the front.

Hi Doug. The 5LO Rocks! I'll sum it up with two adjectives: exhilarating and inspirational. Versatile as it complements my playing style perfectly. In other words, I can play straight in (no pedals) and cover a lot of ground such as 70's rock, cleaner dynamics, and bluesy tones on channel one. The rest 80's-90's full throttle hard rock on channel two. (all done with the use of my guitars volume and tone knobs) The attack and touch sensitivity are really nice as well. Great amp - sounds/plays better than amps I've unfortunately owned costing 3x as much. Nice job Doug - thank you!
The entire process from order to delivery was very positive. My 5LO order was completed a week and a half early and arrived very well packaged. The product itself looks, feels, and sounds many price points higher than I paid, not even counting that it was custom made with my colors and options. 100% will order again. In my opinion, the clean/crunch switch is a must have add on.
