    Anyone have experience with the SWR LA 8?

    Looks cool...kinda expensive ~$220, but small....
     
  2. My practice Amp Gave out recently and I brought an LA12.

    I'm Completely happy with it but yes, it was fairly expensive.

    I brought it simply because compared to other practice Amps in the shop it felt quality.
     
  3. I recently bought an SWR LA-8. Couldn't resist it - it was so cute... Used it with my DB at a practice (friend's house, 2 guitars) and it sounded really good. I also have the SWR WM-10, and the LA is even smaller and lighter, but the sound is excellent for such a tiny amp, and the construction is good. As you say, though, rather $$ - but quality!

  4. They're probably one of the best practice/entry level amps out there. Its nice to see a high end maker like SWR introduce something like the LA Series and have it up to par with their other products.
