I love my SWR’s
They were bought by fender, then closed later on,but
they were the standard for recording and for live shows before they his the combo size amps, and they are awesome.
I have a workingMan 15 which is 180w with a 15" speaker, but don’t let that fool you, that baby is loud AF, and if you get an 8ohm add on speaker cab, it is 240 watts.
I also have a Workingman10, which is 80 watts with a 10" speaker. Also very loud, and if you add a speaker cab to it (8ohms) it is 120watts
They have a mid range which is the WorkingMan12. it is a 12" speaker and is 120watts or 200 with an add on speaker cab.
I have the 15 and I bought a cabinet withs is the WorkingMan 4x10, so it is four 10" speakers. They are both light, have wheels and are mobile, and they kick ass, and have a great sound.
I bought the 10", because for at home practice, I wanted a 10" speaker. I like them, they are punchy and I think are a great size for a combo amp, with either one or two 10" speakers
I am really happy with them all, and the best thing is, I paid $300 for them all.
I got some seller deals, and paid $100 for each unit, but you can find them for $150 to $200 for the 12 or 15, or $100 to $150 for the 10.
They have lots of options, they all have fx loops (that was a SWR signature feature FWIU, reading the history of SWR) as the Aurial enhancer which is a way to dial in the frequency range that you want to adjust your mids about.
Plus they have a presence before the master volume, and some have limiters (compressors) built in them also (but I have seen those more on the bass heads.
There is a great Workingman 4004 Bass amp head being sold by a church in my area, and they are selling for a super reasonable price, and I would love to get it, but I am not able to spend, even the $100 for it, right now.
I have to sell some things first, which I am doing, but nothing has gone yet.
Not much is moving on Offer Up right now. tax season, the 2nd stimulus check, the holidays just past, etc… Yeah,I am watching things get dropped down to stupid prices, and not much is moving.
So, it is a buyers marked on the 2nd hand scene, so be sure to check that out
If you want more info on SWR you can google SWR Sound Engineering I beleive, and you can still find all themauala, and read the history of the guy that started the company, back when there was no good option for bass amps, and he created something for the recording studio, that enede up becoming the staple, and then it progressed into big amp and cabinets for live performances cuz artists were wanting to take that sound from the studio on tour with them.
Anyway, I really like mine, and I never broke the bank to get them, and I have small enough for practice at home and plenty enough for small gig’s, so I won’t grow out of it anytime soon.
