How can an amp sound so good, at any volume, any setting, with no effort? Now I know why everytime I talk to Stu at Fat Sound, he is so giddy about this amp. The Swart sounds so good, so familiar, yet unique that it just makes you want to play all night. Not too loud, extremely full and ballsy, great cleans and great lead tones, super reverb and very hypnotic tremolo. Kind of Tweed/old Marshall tones, articulate, lots of highs, mids and lows, NOT ice picky, even with a Tele. Brent Mason meets Ian Moore tones. Reverb is different, more of a hall type, ducks well so fast picking never gets muddy, but when you stop there is a rich hall sound. So may love it, others will turn it off. I love it. I actually want to keep this in the house not in the studio. This is the perfect amp to just sit and play, though it is too loud to be a quiet bedroom amp, unless you have a rockin' partner! I've been offered to buy my old Deluxe Reverb, now I have no reason to keep it, except for investment purposes. I would imagine that two of these in stereo would make an incredible live rig for everyone except metal heads. Those of you who know me know that I have several cool amps but this is the sh*t! You do not need pedals, plenty of natural, singing, articulate gain. My Johnny A. sounds great through this amp as do Strats, Tele, Pauls and P-90 guitars. Most of you will love this amp. I'll be the first in line when Swarts make a Nuclear Sapce Tone 40 watter!
