This convertible amp has bridged a ton of firsts for Swart Amplifiers, and they certainly did it right!
For starters, the ST-45 is the first high powered amp to come from Swart Amplifiers! Even though Swart is known for their low powered, full toned amps with spacey reverb and tremolo, the ST-45 keeps that traditional Swart tone that we've all come to love, but at a volume that can keep up with a drummer without a microphone! This is the first time Swart has created a dedicated 6L6, fixed bias amp and it has loads of tonal control and a really bold thick sound! Swart has also incorporated, for the first time ever, a Bass and Treble control in place of their usual Tone knob. These controls really help you shape the amp to your guitar tone and for added control, they have also given us a 3 way bright switch to help you control your top end.
Of course, what Space Tone would be complete without Swart's unique tube reverb and tremolo! That's right, the Space Tone 45 also has reverb and tremolo with space (reverb), depth and speed controls! Last, but not least, this amp also has a Master Volume control. Talk about the whole package! Now, not only can you accurately control your tone, but you can also control your drive! All-in-all, this is a great addition to the Swart line up, as well as the avid guitar player's collection!
