Memphis, TN, December 11, 2008 --( Blues City Music has teamed up with the leading guitar amp builder, Soldano Custom Amplification, to create an amplifier guitarists have always wanted. Within its compact size, the Soldano 44 will provide guitarists an unmatched assortment of tones, power, and versatility.

Founded on the principal of providing unmatched customer service and top shelf products, James Burke opened up Blues City Music in 2005. As a tone chasing guitarist himself, and after numerous inquiries from session players and working guitarists, James Burke contacted Mike Soldano about creating an amplifier that could deliver what guitar players have asked for all along…everything. Based on the compact size of the Soldano Astroverb combo, Soldano and Blues City Music have worked together to create the Soldano 44. Filling out at dimensions of 17.5” tall x 17.5” wide x 10” deep and at a weight of 48 pounds, this guitar amplifier will deliver 50 watts of power and performance without problem.

The Soldano 44 has recently been selected as one of Premier Guitar Magazine’s products of the year receiving 5 out of 5 stars for its overall performance and versatility. Reviewer, Mike Mueller says “the amps versatility ranks somewhere between unbelievable and ridiculous.”

Tommy Beard, of Fat Tone Pickups, had this to say: "I had the pleasure of housing the first BCM 44 amp at the Fat Tone Pickups booth at Winter NAMM 08. I have to say that it was built like a tank as well as being as portable as I have ever seen for that much power. I loved the Blue tolex as well. Cool and different.”

Gary Usher Jr. of Metal Blade Records says: "I like my amps Hot & Lean...The new Blues 44 takes me from 0 to 10 in 10 seconds...just the way I like it!"
