Presenting the Swart MOD84, their first design using EL84 power tubes. This particular one features a Celestion Creamback speaker and has their "Tweedy" cabinet, which is in traditional brown tweed with a dark tweed stripe.

Swart wanted to shift the paradigm and leave their favorite 6V6 for the the veritable EL-84, actually an early favorite of theirs and still one today(especially now). Indeed, everything has a beginning and this hail to the EL-84 started years ago as a one of a kind, ├╝ber cool suitcase amp, an amp that they still power up with a grin to this day, and an amp in use BEFORE the seminal Space Tone 6V6se.

While the MOD 84 had its beginnings within that cool, yet humble, suitcase, it's morphed into something far more. This is the new shop favorite and just such a blast to play! The MOD 84 is a strong 15 watts, powered by two EL-84 with 12AX7 first stage and their favorite 12DW7 for that great Swart reverb. Once again, Michael employed a very simple tone cut that follows our less is more for lower wattage amplifiers. And our new 3 way interactive EQ switch gives the user subtle yet defined control with three settings that actually interacts with the volume and attack. Add in the excellent Swart tube tremolo stage along with our favorite tube rectification, and you have a legitimate rival to the AST but with that bit of EL-84 take.

And like all Swart amps, this is a hand-made, finger jointed pine cabinet with open back, sounding very sweet, warm, and lush but with excellent detail and articulation...that is, NATURAL articulation, not hyper unnatural detail. This has that major Swart holographic take, that kind of result that reveals itself late night when the power grid is low use... This is just a killer sounding amp that can cut through the mix in a band setting while still being able to sound intimate with your varying touch sensitivity and use of volume.
