Solomon SR-965 Soldering Iron

About This Item

Durable • Reliable • Great price!
The best economy-priced iron we've found for guitar and amp soldering jobs.

It heats to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C), and at 40 watts, is a step above short-lived 15-30 watt megamart irons.

    Features include:
  • Affordable price, exceptional quality
  • Durable stainless steel shank sleeve
  • Comfortable cushioned grip
  • Long-life non-corrosive 1/32" fine-point tip
  • 4-1/2 foot cord
    We recommend:
  • Order a chisel tip for soldering connections to the back of a control pot or grounding a wire to a tremolo claw. It's also handy for steaming out wood dents with a damp cloth.
  • The adjustable Soldering Stand is a must-have for convenience and safety.
  • Use #0505 standard 60/40 rosin core solder with this iron. Lead-free solder is not recommended due to its high melting point (above 420°F).

#0502 is a 110-volt AC electrical appliance, 60Hz. It has a U.S. standard Type A plug with two flat parallel prongs, ungrounded.

#0602 is a 220-volt AC electrical appliance, 50Hz. It has an international plug Type C (Europlug) with two round prongs, ungrounded.

I'm really liking this soldering iron so far. Tip gets up to heat quick enough. Balanced well for easy control to do guitar wiring effortlessly. Great price and performance!

Hot, but very end isn't as hot as the rest

By

Verified Buyer


This soldering iron is pretty great. It heats up fast, feels great, and is really nice to use. However, the very end of the iron tip doesn't get as hot as the sides a couple millimeters up, making it a little difficult to use precisely. I'm not sure if it's just the tip, or the unit itself.

Hot Iron

Simple, and effective, and able to get into tight spots. I suggest buying a soldering iron stand along with is iron and the chisel tip. Works great and highly recommend it if you do electric guitar wiring.

Does the trick perfectly

I use this for occasional soldering jobs. When I was professional I had a much more expensive station but this one heats up fast, has a nice balance/weight to it, and so far has not failed me on the few jobs I have done. I use this maybe 1-2 hours max a weekend, so we will see how long it lasts.... but for me it I perfect and at an excellent price, I can buy several for the price of one of the professional stations. Add the stand and it is almost as convenient too....

With the chisel tip and the fine tip it can handle any guitar work- from soldering sensitive caps to attaching pickup covers.

Great for guitar wiring

I used this to re-wire my Stratocaster and transfer the stock chrome pickup covers on my Casino to some aftermarket pickups. It worked great on both jobs. I bought the chisel tip, which worked really well.

Works like a dream

Soldering typically gives me fits, but working with the SR-965 has been almost a pleasure. Takes the initial tinning well, heats fast enough... well it does what an iron should.
