How do I id age of SWR head?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Wattoosi, Dec 5, 2005.

  1. There are a few "4004" heads around used, but with different face plates indicating different vintages. Anyone know how to tell which is the more recent one? Basically I am looking for a used head, around 300-400w, and on a budget.

    4004's? if it has some "arcs" and is blue/black its like 2002 up to present. if it has orange lettering, NO arcs and blue/black its like 1999-2002

    found this info on old "vintage" swr page

    older style fc_1.

    newer 01_12.

    I don't know what SWR had for "midline" before 1999.
