[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81G9XWXrgBw]Swart Space Tone Reverb - Tweed with Les Paul - YouTube[/ame]

This is essentially the Space Tone Reverb, a circuit based on the little 5W, Class A, single-ended 6V6'R that started it all, but with new found bottom, and just amazing breakup (in my view, the BEST of the whole ST series). Of course, it has the same awesome reverb. In addition, the STR-Dark Tweed has a switch that brings in more cleans, taming the breakup a bit when you want to tone it down.

This amp is really a blast in "hot" mode. It really is a lot like that little ST-6V6 single-ended beast, but with that big 12" speaker, bigger cabinet vibe riding along with some Swart magic. This cabinet is actually wider and deeper than the AST, only losing a bit in the height department.

Compared to the STR, it's a bit warmer and bit hotter. This is not a subdued amp at all, sounding far bigger than you would think any 5 watts could do. And there is something magical about pure Class A single-ended, 6V6 watts, too. Lord, I love that SE breakup when everything kicks in.

This should sell really fast. I have a Swart AST amp, it`s probably the best amp I`ve ever had; my main amp both for live and studio work. If this one had been located in Europe I`d buy it immediately! GLWYS :)

I think that gave me wood

I'm broke - I already have 4 amps but if I could I would.

Someone buy this before I find $900

Nothing better than a Japanese wife! You can keep the little prick ( My Father always told me never pick a hobby you have to feed). You keep the $500 but your responsible for shipping the wife to NY. You have a deal. P.S. Does she have a master Volume? If shes to loud can I return her in 48 hours?

Would anyone trade a wife with a working master volume?

Great amp. Things are too tight for gear and I don't believe my neighbors are big enough fans of paying people for yard-work to make things happen quickly, LOL!

All the best!

You don't have enough posts to message him.

I'll send him a message (on your behalf) asking to return to the thread.
