SWR vs. MESA (CABINETS!)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bellis1, Apr 15, 2010.


  1. Loving the way my Geddy Lee sounds through my SWR head. Just the right amount of mids, etc. However, I need a new cabinet. Already have a SWR 6x10 but I need something for my lows. I'm thinking either the SWR 2x15 and SWR 6x10 together, one 4x10 and 1x15 together.

    For my bass tone, I really like a clean, fat, tone. I like for the highs to be bassy, as well as everything else. However, alot of mid at the same time to cut through the mix. Almost like a reggae tone. But a tad more highs. What would be best for me?

    MESA cabinets OR SWR cabinets? Whats the difference, really? (besides weight and price) Your opinion?

    You can't go wrong with Mesa cabinets. Personally, I like the older diesel series for a thunderous, shake the earth with clarity sound, but they are very heavy. I've also played through SWR gear and they're fine but not as ballsy.
