SWR Users. Your thoughts on the 350x amp?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by BrentSimons, Apr 10, 2009.

  1. Hey Guys,
    I've using a GK400RBIV but I've been thinking about changing my tone a bit. I'm really into progressive rock. Rush, Dream Theater,etc.Do you think the 350x would give me a warmer punchier tone then the GK?. I realize the 350x has a tube and the GK doesn't but I've read a bunch of posts about SWR's not being the "warmest" of amps. How is the subwave effect on the amp? Does it track well? Any reliability issues?
    Thank you.
  2. Get the Redfaced SWR Basic 350. The 350x is a sorry excuse compared to the original. It's certainly not punchier then the GK, but I did find the tone to be a bit warmer. Slight scoop to it. My personal favorite amp overall. Wish I still had mine. :meh:
  3. Hey Sundance,
    Thanks for the reply. Could you explain the difference in sound between the Red face 350 and the 350x to your ears? What didn't you like about it?
