Just wanted to say a few words about this gem of an instrument. Just like a great guitar, a really special amplifier makes you go places and discover colors you didn't know were there before. I live in an apartment and can't really wind this baby up too often, but just the clean sounds (and amazing reverb) have me almost not caring that I can't distort the beautiful voice of this amp. Though I will admit that the overdrive and distortion are wonderful as well. Springy, alive, articulate and rich. Guitar (preferably tele) > cord > amp. All you need with a Swart. In summary, play this amp if you have the chance.
