    I'm thinking about a Sawart Atomic Space Tone mainly for solo (quiet and jazzy) playing.

    What about the noise in the Swarts? As I read from the webpage it's a rather vintage circuit. Is the noise level acceptable for not so loud playing?

    great great amp that runs really quiet...I play this amp by myself quite a bit and it is not a problem at all.

    If you want it to become more tweedy and break up earlier, definitely try switching the rectifier from the stock GZ34 to a NOS 5Y3. very cool range of tones in this amp...

    the cleans are absolutely gorgeous IMHO and work great for solo playing. The tremolo is the best I have ever heard and the reverb is great as well...

    the clips by Greg V on swartamps.com are absolutely representative...

    it has a great clean tone and I think it would be a great choice for you!

    Um, yeah...I would go ahead and give those Greg V. clips a pass...you'll be screwed if you listen to them too many times (like I have) :p
