After eight months of development, the latest greatest beast by Swart has arrived and it's ready to rock. We're fired up about this new amp!


So take some of the best qualities from the MOD84 and mix it the highlights of the AST with that venerable 6V6/6L6 3D holographic, ethereal voodoo... What do you get? Frankly, it's like no other Swart while being like EVERY Swart. It's the


ANTARES


It's more than an 18w AST on steroids, more than an AST with top mounted controls. It's the Swart Magic worked on twin, push-pull 6V6 with a bit bigger reverb, deeper bottom-end foundation, with a new custom output transformer borrowed from the MOD84 Lineage. It has Swart's killer three-way EQ ala STR-Tremolo, a single-ended favorite. Toss in the AST's all time favorite, über sweet tube bias tremolo and you have the makings of an addiction. And yes, it does have top mounted controls for easy access. And to top it off, it's all housed within an all new Pine cab with tilted back baffle. The pine cab actually plays a big part in the tone of this amp. If you're looking for a versatile all tube amp with a great tone that works on a stage or in the studio, look no further!
