Hello: This is my first post. I enjoy this forum. Lots of great discussion here, so I'm hoping for some informed opinions from those of you who own or have used the Swart Atomic Space Tone. I want to buy a quality boutique amp. I am seriously considering the purchase of a new Swart AST but I have not had the opportunity to try one out. Everything I've read says they are great sounding amps and it fits my idea of style, size and output. I play bluesy & classic rock in a trio and practice jazz at home. Lately I've been using a Blues Jr. for pub gigs and home use. I mostly play a parts Tele with Seymour Duncan Vintage Mini HB at the neck and a Vintage Stack in the bridge. For the jazzy stuff I also have a Godin Montreal. Will I notice a significant change in quality of tone ($1500 worth) between the AST and the Blues Jr? Does the AST sound great clean, at living volume or does it break up early? Thanks in advance for your comments.
