    Well I finally decided to get a new practice amp for my birthday. So I went to guitar center Danvers expecting to get some cheap little combo. As soon I check my bass in, what is sitting there right on the top of the stairs? THE SWR WORKINGMANS 1x10 I've loved for so long. And then I saw the price tag: $249 :eek: . I practically jumped on the thing, I didn't even need to try it out (I've played it so many times) I grabbed it, took it to the front, now its sitting happily in my room.
    Anyways, now on to the amp. This thing is just amazing. The tone is so flexible, every setting sounds good to me. Wether its slap with my dean, or smooth jazz on my fretless, this thing handles. And with power! Has so many features too, direct out, aural enhancer, ext. spk (100watt op.), 3 way speaker switch, effects send/return, and tuner out. This has to be the loudest 80 watts i have ever heard. I can easily get away with our monthly coffee house gigs. Not to mention It's only 32 pounds, and the size of a 3cd stereo reciever! This thing is built solid, and extremely portable. Great buy! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:
