    Up for sale is my beloved SWR Super Redhead Combo bass amp. It is used but in magnificent condition as it spent the past few years in my house as a practice amp. It was kept in a climate controlled smoke free environment and has never been "pushed" to the levels it is capable of. It has never been gigged as it was used for home practice purposes.

    For those that are not familiar with SWR products and in particular this model, it has consistently been hailed as one of the top five bass combo amps ever made. I'm asking for $700.00 OBO so feel free to throw a respectable number out. I would prefer local (18036), but if you cover insured shipping charges on your end, I will box it up and send. Feel free to contact with any questions!

    Front Panel Features:
    Hi (active) and low (passive) sensitivity inputs
    Gain control with LED peak clipping indicator
    Power amp LED peak clipping indicator

    I STILL regret selling mine, but I needed the money.

    Every show I ever played with this was amazing. I never had to crank it up all the way and all the guitar players were jealous that my set up consisted of removing the front cover.

    Best sounding amp ever.

    I am contemplating selling mine too. Why I have no idea since I love the sound and versatility of this combo. Hell John Paul Jones toured in 2004 with one of these and paired it with a Son of Bertha extension cab. Good enough for him is good enough for me.

    @themacinator,

    it really is a great piece of gear with versatility and tone. i'm always amazed to find out more about it's history/legacy and had no idea jpj rocked one :bassist:

    if it wasn't for my move across country and return to my 400+ i would stay plugged into her!

    @themacinator,

    i thought this beast would sell itself but that link to one of the bass god fathers might be the tipping point :cool:
