The Morgan SW22R starts with the circuit from the SW22 and then adds three spring tube driven reverb. The SW22R offers the same tonality of the SW22 including its ultra-sensitive pick attack and singing sustain. The SW22R reverb is also run parallel to the original tone stack. This means when the reverb is not being used it is totally out of the circuit unlike most other guitar amp reverbs. Intentionally designed to be the loudest cleanest it could be with 2x6V6s it is still capable of producing a warm compressed natural overdrive.
The SW22R utilizes a special level control. Its job is to control the amount of gain available in the power section of the amplifier. You will notice after about 3 o’clock on the level control you are adding overdrive to the power section. This allows you to use the level control at lower volumes without sacrificing your tone.
The bass, mid and treble controls interact with each other to give you a wide range of tones. The Bass Emphasis switch changes the center point of the mid frequencies allowing you to get even more bass out of the amp. The bright switch is designed to bring in enough top end for even the darkest guitar but without adding any ice picky highs. This amp was designed to be that familiar black face styled tone from the mid 60’s but with added clarity and string to string definition that is unrivaled in any similar design.
This is a LOUD 22 watt amp. You will be pleasantly surprised with its light weight and small footprint especially when it blows much larger and heavier amps out of the water.
The SW22RC is the combo version and comes loaded with a G12H75 Creamback speaker.
Handwired in the USA.
MORGAN HISTORY: Joe Morgan has been building, modifying and repairing amplifiers since 1996. His designs are seen in stadiums and arenas all over the world. It is hard to turn on a music awards show without seeing his products. Joe designs for the working musician, whether that means a Sunday morning church gig or touring the world with James Taylor.
Joe will be the first to tell you that tube amps are not rocket science (Joe was part of the engineering team that developed the first GPS satellites). Tube amps are only as good as their components and Morgan chooses the best of the best. Engineered with custom designed Mercury Magnetics transformers to provide the best possible sonic signature they also provide him with the confidence to offer a limited lifetime warranty.
