Replacing my SWR

    I`m in the market for a new amp, replacing my old SWR SM 900. I want a little thicker sound, less hi-fi than the SWR.
    The new amp must be loud, and match my EBS 410, witch I love.
    Tried the EBS Fafner, and liked it.
    Tips, anyone?

    cheap fix which you may or may not like. try a sans amp BDDI in front of it adda a lot of girth and still lets you ue the eq and power section you are accustomed to. i use one from time to time with my swr for a much thicker "old school" tone. works wonders.

    another option worth looking into is using a preamp into the effects return of the 900, which will bypass the eq, but still let you use the 900's power section.

    Nice tip with the Sans Amp, but it`s the SWR sound that I want to move away from, and the noice of the cooling fan, and the looks, he he I`m tired of it you see.

    Tried the new Mesa amps?
