I play in several brands of amps because my college has different brands in their ensemble/practice rooms. I have recently found out that I am not able to get a nice tone out of an swr (blackbeauty mostly). Im not saying its a bad tone but the range of tones is way too small. Compared to the GK, ampeg, tc and even fender amps I can't play on SWR anymore. I thought it was just me or my bass but after spending a lot of time tweaking with it trying to find the tone I like I gave up on that brand. Is it me? or do SWR have a specific signature sound to it... to me it sounds waaaay too crunchy, too much treble (even with it down a lot). I can't get a darker mellow tone out of it. Im not flaming SWR, I know they are great amps because people like them a lot, I want to figure out if this is an SWR thing or is it something else?
