thoughts on new SWR WorkingPro's 400

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Anarchyok, Jul 5, 2005.


  1. I've currently got an older Workingmans 4004, which is great but hasn't got the huge low end im after. After a brief try out of the WorkingPro, it seems to have more low end, esp with the bass intensifier circuit on. Any experience with these amps?

    i recently bought the full wp400 rig, head, 210 and 115. it's great, clear, punchy and great response. very versatile, but that's me coming from a gain, three band eq and volume!

    i would definately reccomend them.
     
  3. I have the 4004 as well, and its been great so far but part of me wishes I had done a little more research or spent a little more money (G-K, Ampeg, something like that) Anyway I had the opportunity to try out a WorkingPro head today and I think it was the 400. It sounded good and had decent volume, although I was playing a Modulus Q5 so that could have made it seem somewhat better than what I was used to. One of the things I don't like about the new SWR heads is they have too many bells and whistles built in; the higher end ones at least. I don't like how you can't buy a quality head from them without it having built in SubWave effects or overdrive or this "bass intensifier" thing. The Aural Enhance knob is enough for me. I guess im just ranting so nevermind... it sounded pretty good once I figured everything out.

    Has anyone determined what if any internal differences this new line has over the one it replaced? People say that Fender just did a cosmetic change and a more gender-neutral renaming, but not having seen the insides, I'd be hesitant to accept that.

    Thanks for any hard info.
