15W • Push-Pull • Twin EL-84 • Tube Verb/Trem • Tube Rectification • GLORIOUS!!!!
Space Tone 6V6se
5W Class A • Single-Ended • 6V6/6L6 • Tube Rectification • Pure Tone Goodness
This is the amp that started it all. The Swart Amplifier Co Space Tone 6V6se arose out of musician/recording engineer Michael Swart's attempt to get the most tone and soul from a small, easily manageable package for home/studio use. 5w of pure Class A tone with a breakup and natural tube distortion that is unequaled in modern amplification. Will play 6V6 and 6L6 and is Cathode Biased, so no biasing hassle. The ST-6V6se is now housed in an excellent finger-jointed cabinet covered with Lacquered TWEED. It's an instant Classic & Michael Swart favorite. Simply put, this is a KILLER amplifier. This circuit is the heart of Swart Amps: It's all about The Tone.

5W SE Class A • Tube Reverb • 12" Speaker
6V6/6L6 • Glorious Breakup w/Cleans Switch!
Take the original, ever popular, Class A, single-ended 5w ST-6V6se and pump it with steroids via another gain stage, killer tube reverb, and a 12" speaker and you have the new STR-Tweed, quite possibly the most FUN Swart amp to play yet. And the beast runs 6L6, too! This is truly a low watt monster and I cant stop wiping the grin off my face. Literally. This zero feedback circuit gets the added control of a switch letting you bypass the extra gain stage for more available cleans, and all with that great tube reverb that Swart has become known for. This truly might be Swart's most raw, big toned amp, all housed in our finger jointed pine cabinet in lacquered tweed (also available in optional Dark Tweed & original STR Cab)

5W SE Class A • Tube Reverb • Tube Tremolo 12" 6V6/6L6 • BV-30 or Celestion Blue - SWART TONE
This is our new favorite go to option, the latest amp that is causing all the buzz and intrigue, so much so, it was back ordered before #1 had even left the shop. And who wouldn't want all the amazing tone and compelling breakup of that Swart single-ended, low watt STR glory with all tube reverb AND tremolo? Indeed. Bottom line, it's another great little amp with excellent swirling cleans moving into that great breakup and sweetness all the Swart amps are known for. This is essentially much of the 5w, single-ended Class A STR-Tweed circuit with a unique 3-way EQ switch that is very handy along with this tube tremolo so addictive in the AST. Yep, it's Cathode Biased for no users adjustments with tube sub/rolling. Like all Swart's, can run the 6V6 and 6L6. Bring in ZERO NEGATIVE FEEDBACK for that open, quick, touch sensitive sound. Don't forget the 5AR4/5Y3 Tube rectification for the amazing lack of harshness combined with the wonderful sag and compression when needed. Comes with the Mojo BV30, one of our favorites but LOVES the Celestion Blue Alnico, too! And for a limited time, available in the original STR Tuxedo 60s covering OR the AST style TWEED with dark sides.

The New AST PRO
The Ultimate AST 6V6/6L6 for the Gigging PRO
Swart and Greg V have teamed up again, except this time in the Design Studio. Introducing the Swart AST PRO, the answer to the professional musician's need for the AST with a nod to life on the stage and road. Take the amazing AST circuit and drop the beast into a cabinet with a bit more depth for some extra bottom, a recessed chassis for knob/switch protection from mishaps, and a bit more room for more speaker options. Then add the new larger port for more breathing room and the addition of an on-the-fly switching external output on back, making driving another cabinet as easy as plug in, and you have the amazing AST PRO, the new Swart offering ready to take you beyond. Comes with your choice of speaker, including the legendary Celestion G12H Heritage UK or the knockout tone monster Celestion Gold 12 Alnico. Pair this monster with our 2x12 cab and you have a host of options that would stir the head and the soul...

Bypassable Master Volume - Tube Reverb/Trem
18-20w ~ 6V6/6L6 ~ 1x12
Also known as the AST Mk II Combo. The Master is essentially the AST Head Mk II chassis and circuit placed in a custom 1x12 cabinet (2x10 driver on special request). Like the AST Head MkII, the AST Mk II Combo has a defeatable master volume and can run the stock 6V6 and 6L6. Can be fitted with a variety of 12" driver options. This is a very sweet setup with a bit more fullness and bottom than the AST combo although a touch hotter setup as well. Retains head's ability to run 4-8-16ohm loads and comes with two outputs. Can run INTERNAL speaker along with an EXTERNAL CABINET.

AST Head Mk II
& 1x12 Cabinet
ALL Tube Verb/Trem - Master ~ 6V6/6L6!
The AST Head MkI Limited Edition sold out in a record 45 days. What to do? Get Michael working on a second version, this time designed from the ground up to be run as a head, with the added advantage of a MS designed defeatable Master Volume that can be bypassed for the purist! This is the FIRST Master we have liked in a combo as it does not leech the tone and bottom end. The new head can now run 6V6 & 6L6. It's the same great AST circuit that has brought accolades from around the world, except now more flexible than ever! The AST Head II can push 4/8/16ohm cabs and has two outputs. The matching 1x12 cabinet comes stock with the Mojo BV-25 but can be purchased with speaker of choice. As always, the finger-jointed, lacquered tweed, pine cabs are first rate. This is destined to be another classic. More below.

ALL NEW ALTAR TO TONE ~ NOTHING LIKE IT !
Super Space Tone 30
Tube Head & Cabinet
Tube Reverb/Trem - Master Vol - 4x6V6/6L6 ~ 30W
You loved the AST Head, so much so, we sold out of the Limited Edition run before we thought we would. After a line formed, asking us to extend the run, we told them to be patient. Michael loved the Atomic Space Tone in both the combo & head version but felt the need to up the stakes one notch, adding another pair of 6V6, the tone~soul valve of choice, this combined with a Master Volume and a number of tweaks to the circuit. Enter the all new, totally unique, Super Space Tone 30 head (SST-30) and matching, custom tweed 2 x 12 Space Tone Cabinet, possibly one of the neatest cabinets we've seen, housing two Celestion "Creambacks" behind the vintage grill. The combo is a knockout but each stands equally well alone. We've found there's a "Hear it, gotta have it" thing going on. Don't say we didn't warn you...
Custom Hand Rubbed Tweed ~ TOTALLY UNIQUE

It's finally in production after the long wait but like a fine wine, it's more than worth it. The all new SPACE TONE FORTY-FIVE, or ST-45, is a first for Swart Amps on a number of fronts. It's our first 45 watt amp that is built and dedicated to the 6L6 tube, this via our first production Fixed Bias circuit to get the MOST out of this great tube. It's our first offering with separate bass and treble controls. Bottom line, this amp just has STELLAR CLEANS, so sweet and alluring, with no trace of the mechanical. Picture an AST on clean steroids. This amp really nails that elusive harmonic richness while still sounding open and transparent. The real kicker? It's actually as beautiful as it sounds, with another first for us, a full convertible HEAD cab that can be removed to show this beast off in full glory. IT's an aesthetic masterpiece mated with the easiest access to tube rolling fun you'll ever find. The cab is secured with four heavy duty latches. This amp made Buddy Miller reach for ye olde checkbook after only a few minutes playing at NAMM. Can be paired with matching 2x12, 1x12, or 1x15. The 2x12 with CREAMBACKS is a winner.
Offerings Discontinued but not forgotten...
