A 5W Single-Ended - TUBE REVERB - 12" Speaker - 6V6/6L6 Compatible
Space Tone Reverb - Tweed (STR-Tweed)
ST-6V6se on Steroids • HOTTEST BREAKUP OF ANY SWART YET! Or Switch to Cleans!
Yet we still wanted the cleans option, or at least some semblance of control when needed, just to give it a bit of flexibility. And of course, it had to be a bone simple circuit, tone cut sans bass/treble/mid controls, something that let all the guitar through while also having a character of its own.
Well, I cant stop playing this damn thing and it's now my FAVORITE Swart amplifier, at least this month! Yep, it's the Swart Space Tone Reverb TWEED, and if it's not the most FUN amplifier I've ever played, then I don't know what.
This is essentially the Space Tone Reverb, a circuit based on the little 5W, Class A, single-ended 6V6'R that started it all, but with new found bottom, and just amazing breakup (in my view, the BEST of the whole ST series). Of course, it has the same king hell reverb. In addition, the STR-Tweed has a switch that brings in more cleans, taming the breakup a bit when you want to tone it down.
But to tell you the truth, I haven't been able to stop smiling enough to use that switch for cleans, that's how much of a blast this amp is in "hot" mode. It really is a lot like that little ST-6V6 single-ended beast, but with that big 12" speaker, bigger cabinet vibe riding along with some Swart magic. This cabinet is actually wider and deeper than the AST, only losing a bit in the height department.
Compared to the
STR, it's a bit warmer and bit hotter. This is not a subdued amp at
all, sounding far bigger than you would think any 5 watts could do.
And there is something magical about pure Class A single-ended, 6V6
watts, too. Lord, I love that SE breakup when everything kicks in. Who
needs a pedal!?
If you look at the specs above, you'll notice a lot of familiar attributes, such as cloth covered hook-up wire, carbon comp resistors, quality Mallory caps, and a circuit optimized with testing done by LISTENING....and MORE listening. Whether with the BV-30, this amp kills it..
And like ALL Swart amps, STR-Tweed utilizes the Swart philosophy of minimal controls for the least complexity, something we feel is instrumental in great tone. Wonder why we go with a simple "treble" cut in the circuit? There's the answer. You wont see a plethora of controls in the Space Tone series because we've found it compromises our #1 goal: The best tone out there.
with me that this new amp is just the most fun and our all out hottest
amp. I wouldnt let this photo sample model out of my house! You gotta
hear this thing.
