I picked up a swart space tone reverb-tweed from guitar center about a two weeks ago. Now I got a 5 watt fender champion 600 for my birthday and thought volume wise it would be on par with that. After playing with it for about an hour I got to turn it lose I am telling you, no joke it was soudn wise in the same territory as the volume I have to play with my blackstar ht-60 stage. It is a truly incredible 5 watt amp. Mr. Swart you are awesome.
