Sorry this isn't a longer post, but I have been swamped at work and just haven't had as much time as I'd like with either amp. Swart AST: I love this amp! Some of the very best clean tones I've ever heard. I also really like the OD tones. It doesn't sound like anything I've ever owned before. A candidate for the perfect home amp IMO. I love my Strat into the low input and my Les Paul into the high input. I want a Tele so very bad to use with this amp. I think a Nocaster or Esquire + Swart would = sonic gold. I can only imagine the possibilities... My only criticism is that I wish it was louder. It's a fine line between not loud enough, the perfect volume and too loud. I like the Swart to be a touch louder. Matchless Clubman: this amp has an immense sonic footprint. It sounds absolutely HUGE. A brilliant mix of a Vox and vintage Marshall to my ears. Lots of sparkle in that amp! I am very impressed by the low end. I didn't know what to expect, but this amp has balls. The only drawback for me is the volume. It's probably too loud for what I need, but we'll see. I can't help but wonder what the Swart SST is like.
