SWR Workingman's 15 Combo Reviews 5

Guitar Center for $639.99. It was a gift, but I know how much it's worth.

This amp is really good. It has a lot of ways to change the sound. A lot of settings and knobs and whatnot. The manual comes with 6 presets. Which are good, because they have them made so they have a higher resistance to clip. I play it with a Fender P-Bass. It has wheels on the back, so you tilt it back and roll it around on two wheels, instead of having four wheels. Packs a punch and is pretty powerful. It's 160 watts, and if you get an extention cab, it'll go to 200 watts. It has Passive input and Active input. Passive pretty much focuses on volume, and on Active, the volume gets cut in half, but the tone is different. It's actually a stack, but they have the courtesy to put it into one piece.

There's not much to not like about this thing. Except that it's hard to make your own tones, because then you get in a battle with the gain and the preamp clip. And if it clips too much, you blow the head.

This thing is a brick. Strong and sturdy. Sadly, it's heavy like one. That's nothing to complain about. It's 57 pounds, I think, but it has the wheels.

Amazing amp, definitely buy if you're in a band and you're starting to get really serious and you want to get rid of the puny 30 watt amp. Worth every penny
