    I went in today to see if I could get a little practice combo and my Bass Department guy steered me onto this instead. It was Memorial Day and they were closing this one out as they were dropping the more expensive "Professional Series" SWR models from store stock.

    68% off list, brand new, full warranty. Oy, how could I go wrong?

    Man, this is such a quiet amp! No tweeter hiss, idle hiss, nothin'!

    Here it is.
     
  2. That's a pretty big "practice" amp. Are you playing with other instruments?

    Fantastic amp and fantastic price!

    No kidding. I just realized I did my back in getting it unloaded at home. :meh:

    Ninety-five pounds!

    Yeah, and $1200+ at a lot of other "discount" places. Quite a deal.
