Swart Space Tone 5-watt Combo:
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. The result is a stellar amplifier that surpassed ALL expectations.
The Space Tone amplifier is inspired by Classic designs from the single-ended ALL VALVE era 50's. The Circuit is a customized Fender Princeton 5F2/5F1 Champ derivative that borrows the best from both topologies. The tone and clean to distortion characteristics are excellent.
The Supro inspired cabinet, made by woodworker Clark Thomas, is finger jointed pine and covered with lacquered tweed with three vertical racing stripes.
The ST-6V6se circuit is hand wired, point to point by Michael Swart. There are no Circuit or turret boards resulting in the most direct path. Cloth wire is used for hookup. Simply put, there are no semiconductors or solid state diodes anywhere as the Space Tone is 100% valve powered. Tubes include the excellent JJ 12AX7, Electro-Harmonix 6V6GT, and NOS 5Y3. It's a Pure triode front end into the great 6V6 all cleaned by 5Y3 tube rectification. All-tube designs disappeared because of the extra expense and the emergence of ultra-cheap solid state diodes. The Swart Amplifier Co. feels that eliminating ALL solid state devices is necessary to get the BEST tone without the harsh, metallic sound of solid state.
Sound is amazingly BIG. Go from super clean to TUBE distortion with the turn of the volume knob.

HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/12/2006:
"I have been playing..... well way to long :-) As far as gear, its like one of everything. 12 guitars and 11 amps. I would get this again if stolen. I think it is the best of its type of amp even better than Dr Z's fine entry into this camp. I have the new Tweed version and I suggest that you get the same. Its a work of art and just a tone of fun to play. If you want a 5 watt amp you won't be sorry if you get this, especially if you use it with a boost. I now own this amp and its big brother the Atomic Space Tone, both amps are amazing."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 4/13/2005:
"OK guys this bad boy is AMAZING! Itís a 5 watt Amp that just sounds awesome! This thing will smoke anything else I have for pure tube sound and distortion. Its really a little killer! It just has this thick huge warm tone that has that old crunch. You wonít believe it...and itís quiet. This amp is perfect for recording because its only 5 watts, dead quite, but big and huge in tone, and is perfect for that Rock and Roll/Blues sound that all the rock stars pay for."
