Selling my Swart Atomic Space Tone in custom Red/Silver Sparkle! The AST is Swart's take on the ultimate clubbing and recording combo - Clean, dirty, filthy, swampy, trippy and smooth, from jazz to blues and rock, and the 12" speaker gives it all the push and authority you need in a grab-and-go combo.
Build quality is second to none, and Swart uses only the best - Mallory, Sprague and JJ caps and carbon comp resistors. The custom two-tone sparkle finish is also incredibly well done, and somehow manages to look both classy and flashy at the same time.
As great as the foundational tones are, the reverb and tremolo are truly incredible. Swart's take on reverb isn't splashy or springy, it's very warm, round and 3D in the way it wraps around the notes. And if you've never heard tube-driven tremolo, you're in for a treat!
This amp includes the original light-up Swart footswitch for the 'verb and trem, a Swart footswitch cord and a padded Tuki cover. It's also been upgraded with Swart's Pro Panel and a set of TAD 6L6WGC-STR power tubes, JJ preamp tubes and a TAD 5AR4. This amp will also take 6v6 tubes without needing a bias, which offer slightly lower headroom and a different flavor of crunch.
Currently listed on Reverb (check it out for more pictures) however I'm offering to TDPRI members for $1500 including shipping to the Lower 48 or best reasonable offer.

Trades: I'm currently on the hunt for either a hollow body Gretsch - MIJ Pro line or vintage only, please - or a vintage Mosrite Mark IV. I would also be interested in a Jaguar - AVRI or vintage - in OTM.
