    Does anyone know if there is any real difference between the older style of SWR Workingman's 15 and the newer style other than cosmetics? I have played the newer ones which sound great, but could likely pick up one of the older ones for a song...

    See attached images...(hopefully they have attached properly)

    I don't know about the new ones but i briefly owned an older one and it sounded like a sterile pos.i hated it and bought an ampeg combo.
  3. The newer one's have a bit more power. I believe the old model was 160 watts vs. 200 with the new model. The new one has wheels too though, they're still not that easy to move.

    It's a great combo.
