9.8 of 10 Condition (1 long scratch in the tweed on the side)
This is the amp that started it all for Swart. 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. 5w of pure Class A tone with a breakup and natural tube distortion that is unequaled in modern amplification. Will play 6V6 and 6L6 and is Cathode Biased, so no biasing hassle. The ST-6V6se is now housed in an excellent finger-jointed cabinet covered with Lacquered TWEED. It's an instant Classic & Michael Swart favorite. Simply put, this is a KILLER amplifier. This circuit is the heart of Swart Amps: It's all about The Tone.
Take the original, ever popular, Class A, single-ended 5w ST-6V6se and pump it with steroids via another gain stage, killer tube reverb, and a 12" speaker and you have the new STR-Tweed, quite possibly the most FUN Swart amp to play yet. And the beast runs 6L6, too! This is truly a low watt monster and I cant stop wiping the grin off my face. Literally. This zero feedback circuit gets the added control of a switch letting you bypass the extra gain stage for more available cleans, and all with that great tube reverb that Swart has become known for. This truly might be Swart's most raw, big toned amp, all housed in our finger jointed pine cabinet in lacquered tweed (also available in optional Dark Tweed & original STR Cab)
