    Swart!!! Late to the club, I suppose. Watched this demo of the STR Tweed and had to pull the trigger. Supposed to be here Wednesday. Sounds pretty killer.

    I just got a used SRT Tremolo for a great deal. A fantastic sounding amp! I love it.

    They are a great amp. The volume comes on easy. you have the two inputs which have good contrast as one is clean and the other is dirty. The reverb can be a bit much but the natural overdrive you get is just awesome.

    I don't even have it yet, but I already want an STR Tremolo to run in stereo with the Tweed. :D

    Make sure you try a Tele through your STR! Match made in gear heaven.

    I get pretty close to this tune with my 335. The setting he's using on the clip, is volume and tone at 3:00, and hot switch on. I also like to turn volume and tone to 3:00 with hot switch off, with the Gibsom. I had an old USA Tung Sol 5881 that I use for an even bigger sound. And I use it at smaller gigs, where not alot of headroom is needed.

    Just got the Swart Stereo Master 20. It's the bomb. Just rocked it out at volume with friends and we were all floored. I've owned the amp you got and only sold it to get this one. He is a master of his craft.

    I have an ST-45 head and use a 2x12 Swart cab with it. It's heaven. Such a great amp. Build quality is unmatched.

    Swart amps rule! The STR Tweed is a badass little amp. Flip that hot switch on, wick it up and stand back. Remember to use a helmet and eye protection. Safety first...

    Love my STR and AST. Simply great amps.

    I have a Celestion Blue in mine. The mojotone is no slouch though.
