Hi all. So, long story short, I am upgrading amps and my shortlist right now contains only the Swart Atom Jr. I haven't played it but from what I've heard on youtube and people's reactions I think it's pretty perfect for me. However, I am a little disconcerted at the number of times I've seen people saying that the 8 inch speakers can't handle humbuckers and that it sounds muddy. I play a PRS Mira and love to play stuff by Phish, some Dead, Clapton, Allman bros, beatles, some Led Zep, etc...so however you would classify that. I like clean sound, not a lot of grit. But I'd love some overdrive. Oh and I'm a bedroom player all the way. Probably won't ever gig with this amp. Anyway, I emailed Swart a little while ago so I expect to hear back from them soon, but can the people that actually use these amps help assuage my concerns? Additionally, what are some alternatives to the Atom Jr? I am really not trying to spend over $1000 here, maybe (maybe maybe maybe) a little more if needed but I'd rather not. So, thoughts? Also, can anyone explain the difference to me between the STR and the STR tweed (besides that the STR is discontinued)? edit: I ended up getting a Carr Raleigh after trying out some Swarts for a few hours. Obviously the Swarts were fantastic amps, but the Carr really nailed the tones I was trying to get at the volumes I was trying to use.
