FS / SWR SM-1500 MINT
SWR SM1500 I bought brand new from Atlanta Bass Gallery about 2 years ago as open box. I did not get a footswitch or manual but was brand new. I use this in my studio and it’s always been racked in a G-Shock case with rear shelf bracket and never taken out of the studio. I use it for recording and keeping up with two loud guitar players and a heavy hitting drummer and it does it with a yawn. It never gets more than warm and I have never pushed it because it would crumble the building our studio is in.
Yes everyone is getting into micro heads and they are good for convenience and mobility and some sound great. This for me was for recording and getting any tone you could imagine at any volume you could imagine with a real 4 knob tube compressor and insane flexibility in the input stage and output. If you have a studio and need a head that can do anything tone and reliability wise and you don’t need to move it often it’s amazing. Not heavier than some tube heads I have lugged around in my younger years. 67 Lbs. I would sell it in the G-Shock case without the power conditioner. It’s mint and has never ever given me one issue it works and has worked flawlessly. Only moving to fund other gas that gasX isn’t taking away.
Asking $1,475 in the G-Shock rack (no power conditioner) shipped east of the Mississippi out to west coast must check shipping charges could be a little salty with insurance...
