These two amps are giving me GAS big time. Who's had 'em both? What did you think? What did like dislike? Which did you keep- and why?

Thanks!

Since I build the Goodsell, I'm not getting into "better"... Swart makes an excellent product, even better that his stuff can co-exist with mine, since there is virtually no overlap - addressing different uses/needs/desires...

An apple is not inherently better than an orange, and vice-versa.

In the broadest of strokes - Goodsell: EL84 Swart: 6V6

That's kinda the gist...

Two very different beasts. The Goodsell does its own thing, effective master, great sounding cab, mini marshall crunch and vox chime. The Swart is a great amp but firmly in the Fender camp. I still have the Goodsell

thats kinda what makes the issue hard. they seem comparable only in the fact that they are low wattage and combo amps (if you chose the combo version of each as i am contemplating). so its kinda as if you can only pick on, which to choose?

I had both.

Goodsell: Brighter, more grind, bigger headroom, vox/marshall tones.

Swart: Swampy/Fender tweed vibe, no master, great reverb and trem.
