    Hi Folks,

    Here's a couple more Swart Atomic Space Tone mp3s...

    The first longer Mp3 is a borrowed PRS Mcarty humbucker guitar with just a touch of Boss Dm3 delay and the Swarts onboard reverb. The amp was turned up about 3/4 but I start the clip out with the guitars volume turned down to "5", then at 1:00 in I turn up the guitar around "8" and finally to "10" at around 1:30. At all times it was easy to control the mild breakup to more grinding tone by picking attack.

    Second Mp3 is my Fender Bajo Sexto Baritone and the swampy Swart tremolo and reverb with a smokier, darker tone dialed up.

    Very cool! I only got to listen to the PRS version, because the second link isn't working for me. It's all very cool, but at about 1:43 I began to smile.

    Awesome stuff, Greg.

    Great clips Greg. First one was lots of fun but I like the feel of the second one more. Sounds like it could go somewhere interesting. Great playing in both.

    I really like the sound of that amp too. All the clips I've heard from it sound fantastic. It sounds like it has a lot of personality.

    Thanks.

    Greg....very nice!
    How long have you had it....and would you gig with it, or at least haul it to a Blues Jam?
    Seems like a real nice (small) grab-n-go Combo with nice features....(including being small).
    Thanks,
    Mark

    Damn, Greg - we are not worthy! :cool:

    I have been on an amp spree (orgy?) recently. I've got too many really great amps, and I do NOT need any more, thank you. But that Swart...

    Oh my... :(

    May have to sell some pretty great amps and invest in one o' those little Atomic Space rascals...

    Sounds like an "X-Ray" style thingy to me, Dave.

    Best, Pete.

    Greg, great clips btw!
    Do you have any with a standard Strat type guitar, maybe with some quack going on?

    Thanks, Pete.

    Hey Greg,

    I love both tracks. Very tasty , wonderful touch.
    You know how to speak through your guitar.

    Thank you for sharing with us.

    Especially your baritone ... inspired me a lot.
    Thanks. I will play my Baritone guitar.

    Hey everyone, Thanks for checking out the MP3s, Cool!

    Hi M1911,
    Thanks, I've had the Swart on loan for over a month. I think the Swart is plenty loud with punchy midrange for many smaller club/jam needs as long as the drummer is not hitting too hard. It has some clean headroom, (not massive) and breaks up nicely for bluesy/rock tones.
    I agree it's a real nice small-size, full sounding grab-go amp for my needs.

    Hi Decay-O-Caster,
    Thanks, I know how it is about not needing (or not wanting more) more gear!! I've just been digging having lower wattage amps turned up real loud, fun to play and easy on the ears.

    Hi Bob,
    Thanks, Time to get a baritone, they sure are fun!

    Hi Trisonic,
    Thanks, Sorry no Strats around me. I play mostly Teles and even had to borrow a humbucker guitar for the clip above! I need a good Strat though...

    Hi Tomo,
    Thanks, I'd love to hear a clip from you on Bari! Your chord/melody approach would sound great, fire it up!

    Oh no... I placed an order yesterday... I don't know what came over me... It was dark, the tone was so big, I was so scared... :(

    :D

    Good Lord, somebody loan that man a Strat!

    David and Greg - You read the review in Guitarist of the Cornford Carrera?


    Best, Pete.

    Yepper, Pete - and damn, it sounded really sweet! But the Swart just grabbed me in all the clips I've heard of it. I'm really digging that sort of early Tweedy gritty thing I'm hearing in the Swart, the 65 London, and the Xray.

    David,
    Look forward to hearing of your complete experience of the Swart!

    Best, Pete.
