SWR micro amp?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by CaptainWally, May 1, 2009.

  1. The last amp that SWR introduced was a 70lb. monstrosity. With the introduction of the SWR GoLight cab series, I'm wondering if they also have a micro amp in the works.

    It seems like they are being left behind in the highest growth market in bass amps these days.

    Any info or speculation?

    I wish the had a micro head version like the original Baby Blue, but (kind of OT) they have a combo called the SWR Spellbinder Blue (used to be called the Baby Baby Blue). Its been available in different forms for several years. 27lbs, single 10", 160W.

  3. True, although not quite what I had in mind.

    Thinking something to go head to head w/ Eden WTX500 or LM2.

    Haven't really seen much from them since the Fender buy-out/sell-out.

    I have to agree. It seems like SWR has missed the mark on their heads. The rest of the industry is going to light, small, class D amps and they are cranking out the same old thing. I guess their newest product introduction is the Marcus Miller preamp and the goLight cabs. Players seems to be moving away from power amp/preamp units and going to small, compact all-in-one heads. In my opinion that was an example of missing the mark.

    Maybe their strategy is to just stick to what they feel they do best which is to make clean, reliable traditional transformer heads. In any case, it seems like they are kind of just drifting out of business or something. Maybe Fender is going to eventually shut the line down.
