Weï¿½re very excited to be stocking Swart amps. The brainchild of Michael Swart these small studio, home and gigging amps kick out some amazing sounds, great cleans and sweet musical overdrive.
Point to point hand wired tube loveliness.
Michael Swart, long time musician and recording engineer who owns and runs a 24 track studio located in Wilmington, NC has been using vintage tube amps of yore for live gigs and studio work.
Vintage Vox, Fender, and Ampeg cycled though. Michael always found something missing in a perfect small recording amp for studio and home use that exhibited great tone and distortion characteristics, all the while, remaining flexible (and quiet) enough for recording use.
Swart then started building custom tube amps to get the exact tone he wanted. The original SPACE TONE is as a result of this need for a small studio or home amp that could provide BIG tone with quality distortion when needed. The Atomic Space Tone followed and the rest is history.
These are now Michael's most requested amplifiers for studio and gig use. Each additional Swart amp has been building on this success. Indeed, the sound is only equaled by the amazing raves. Yet nothing in this text could prepare you for the tone. You're just going to have to try one and find out for yourself. You'll never go back...
The Swart STR Tremolo has the same circuit as the STR Tweed but with the added bonus of Tremolo. This is still in development and may well change slightly but here is what Swart say about it.....
People have been asking for this and now it's as good as here...
Yep, the STR-Tremolo will have the same soul and basic circuit as the STR-Tweed, just with:
The addition of a great tremolo stage (along with same quality Reverb stage)
The addition of a 3 way EQ Switch that makes the STR-Trem more flexible
As stock in the original STR 60s style cab & a limited run of AST Style Tweed cabs!
The STR-Tremolo will have just slightly less gain than the STR-Tweed as the Tremolo section will take place of the extra gain stage in half of the 12AX7. On the other hand, it will still have much of the STR-Tweed's great tone, immediacy, growl, and touch sensitivity. Drop in the Atomic Boost, and you get it back and more. I really dig this amp!
After sitting with it for a good 30 minutes and loving it, I personally played a pair of new STR-Tremolo in STEREO and was just blown away. One had a Celestion Gold and the other a BV-30. Moved them five feet apart and dickered with settings and for the love of St. Nick, could not stop playing the beasts. It was so compelling, I'm convinced we need to come out with our own Stereo Pedal just so we can facilitate running these beasts in pairs. I moved to one AST and one STR-Tremolo and was just as blown away, if not more. For those of you with TWO Swarts of any kind, running them in stereo is just amazing and highly recommended.
I tried the STR-Trem with and without an Atomic Boost and loved it both ways. Of note, the new cabs are a touch deeper to fit the Celestion Blue and Gold. There has been interest in the Tone Tubby Hempcone Alnicos as well.

Take it away is an Arts Council initiative designed to help more people get involved in learning and playing music. The scheme allows individuals to apply for a loan of up to £2,000 for the purchase of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly instalments, completely interest free.
Take it away is open to anyone aged 18-25, or if you are over 25 you can use the scheme to purchase an instrument for a child under 18 that is in full time education, but primarily designed to help those who might otherwise be unable to afford an instrument appropriate for their needs.
Offer subject to age and status. Terms and conditions apply. Take it away is operated by ArtCo Trading Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Arts Council England. Registered address: Arts Council England, North East, Central Square, Forth Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3PJ
First, find an instrument that you want to buy. If you don't know what you're looking for, call or email either store where we will be able to give you help and advice in selecting the right instrument for your needs.
Once you've made your decision, you can apply for a Take it away loan to finance your purchase. You will need to bring a credit or debit card with you in order to pay the 10% deposit. The application process takes no more than a few minutes and, if approved, you can take your purchase away with you there and then.
Loans are available up to £2,000, or as little as £100. The loan amount can be a part-payment towards an item that costs more than £2,000, or you can buy several lower value items with a combined value of up to £2,000 or more.
You will need to pay a minimum 10% of the loan amount at the point of sale. The rest is then paid back over nine months in equal instalments. There is no administrative charge or handling fee when you take out the loan, so you will never be paying more for your purchase than the ticket price.
