    SWR Workingman's 12

    Construction: 5. Cream of the crop. Loaded with top-notch components and assembled with great attention to detail. Tough steel grille and plywood construction equal a light-but-tough rear-ported package.

    Electronics: 5. Simple EQ and aural-enhance circuit get the job done effectively. Passive and active basses (including piezo-equipped acoustics) really shine through the Workingman's 12. A DI, stereo headphone jack, separate power cord, and high-frequency tweeter-level switch add to the value.
    Portability: 4.5. Top-mount handle in the right spot makes it easy to carry the amp with one hand and your gig bag in the other. Not as light as the Trace—but close.

    Sound: 5. Pro sound as soon as you hit power. Limiter stays active during slapping but stays clean without chopping out the lows. The best amp for those who play electric and acoustic. "Versatile. Really comes alive when you dig in." "Tighter than the Ampeg—more modern." "That 'finger on string' sound." "Needs some tweaking when played against two guitars." "Fairly transparent sound with a P-Bass." "Top that stings!" Drummer comment: "The upright feels more like acoustic bass."

    Value: 4.5
