Any footage of a Milkman or Swart Amp with a band? Tired of demos!

    I have a Swart STR now and it sounds great. I played a Milkman 5 watt amp recently at Southern Guitars in Cartersville Ga and was completely blown away. I just wish there were actual footage of folks playing these amps out in a live band situation especially the Milkman now.

    I know there's footage of Pedal steel players playing the Milkman amps and they sound great but I wanna hear some GEETARRRRR!!!!

    Anyone?

    I can't help you with Milkman, but Jeff Tweedy has played some Wilco gigs with a Swart AST. You might find some clips on YouTube.

    I saw a Milkman I think on a YouTube vid with Jim Campilongo and the Honeyfingers.

    Those amps are for bedroom players and YouTube superstars. Gigging players use Deluxe Reverbs and DSL's.

    Ha, that was trollish of me. Sorry. I'd love to hear one of those amps in a live band setting as well. :D

    Looks like two Swarts on stage here...I know, I know it is Katy Perry but at least it is a Queen song!

    Just realizing I accidentally posted this in the guitars section instead of the amps! Whoops!

    Sons of Bill live in a radio studio sans rhythm section, so sort of a band context, with a Milkman Creamer:

    Sons of Bill (again) playing "Big Unknown" (again) in a studio (not radio) also supposedly a Creamer, but you can't see it in the video, with a different guitar (Tele instead of an ES-335, as in the first video):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WoXzvilt5w

    He used to play Dr. Z amps, but has been playing a Creamer of late. They had to cancel the portion of their current tour that was coming near me, else I would have been able to confirm it firsthand.

    Good band that I just learned about. Tasty guitar work.

    I'd like to hear a Milkman in person, so I'll wait to pass judgment. But I can pass judgment on the Swart: I saw Buddy Miller a couple of years ago and he used two Swart AST Pros. I never heard a better sounding rig. Buddy knows tone so if Swart is his choice, it's certainly on my radar.

    The couple I have played, I wouldn't hesitate to gig with. Wonderful amps.
