About Swart Amplifiers
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...
Swart AST Pro 25
Here's what Swart say about this little beastie......
Designed in conjunction with guitarist Greg V, this is the no holds barred answer to the professional musician's need for an AST built for the road but without any loss in Swart style and ï¿½lan. Introducing the AST PRO, which offers everything the AST is famous for, plus the following mods:
Deeper Cab w/Recessed Chassis for Protection
Chassis Elevated to accommodate Larger Speaker
Rear Panel w/Switchable External Out/In & Enlarged Port
NEW! Rear Panel now includes Night Light Input!
Dark Lacquer w/Dual Piping & contrasting Light Grill
Extra Large Rubber Feet for Vibration/Protection
15 1/2" W x 10 1/8" D X 18 7/8" H ~ Weight @ 31lbs
So what does this all mean?
Well, sound-wise, you're looking at the move to the UK "Heritage" version of the Celestion G12H-30 or the G12H30 Anniversary. The UK version brings a slightly more refined top end then the Mojo with subjectively more extended bottom. The Anniversary version seems not quite as stiff with perhaps a more pronounced top end. It's a matter of preference. The AST PRO sounds a tad "bigger" than the AST. The cab is 3/4 an inch deeper to allow the recessed chassis for additional knob/switch protection. This might add just a bit more heft to the bottom as well. The enlarged port in the PRO panel, now standard on all AST, gives a slightly more open sound. And the new switchable external output makes it easier to drive another cab, bypassing the internal speaker (8ohm output).
