This seems to be the case. I can't get a direct answer. Anybody know?
Yes, this happened around 5 months ago (If I remember correctly).
Happened awhile ago...do a search
Fender Bought SWR
Jeez, what planet have you been on?
Fender acquires SWR
Yes, we know it 2 here in Europe
The new Fender Bass Amp is taking Q's from
It's only a matter of time before there will be
no SWR brand as it slowly becomes only Fender.
I think there are quite a number of amps out there that:
Have a semi-parametric eq section
compressor built in...Mesa, Eden, H&K, etc.
IOW, whatever Fender has done with the Pro800 is simply catch up to what some in the industry have been doing for a while. I don't see how they could have integrated SWR's ideas in such a short timeframe.
I do think it is entirely possible that the SWR line will be subsumed into the Fender brand.
He shouldn't feel too bad. California is a planet.
But the governor is a Terminator from out of space
The SWR name still holds significant brand value- part of what Fender paid for. Of course, its up to Fender to preserve that value. I'd be surprised if they bought SWR in order to acquire proprietary technology or to eliminate a competitor
I agree 100%. The cachet of the SWR marque is much too valuable for it to go away.
Just like you won't see Eden amps eventually badged Washburn.
I figured even most eremites had heard about Fender buying SWR by now.
