Swart Atomic Space Tone Jr. AST Jr. 1x8" Guitar Amp Combo
The Space Tone Atomic Jr is an amazing, soulful little amp from the hands of Michael Swart.
The new ST-Atomic Jr starts off with the heart of a ST-6V6se with the addition of triode reverb stage utilizing a dedicated 12DW7 fed into a nifty spring tank for surprisingly huge Reverb, especially for a cabinet this size.
The circuit remains amazingly simple, including this reverb stage, and will feature volume, tone, and Swart's patented "Space" reverb. I've been playing this beast non-stop since the prototype hit my apartment, never to leave. It's the perfect amp for those craving AST type sound in a compact package.
There is a cool switchable gain option in place of the 6V6se feedback switch. When in circuit, the amp has more cleans and take a bit longer to break-up. Flip it out of circuit and you have slightly less compression with a more raw take, quicker to get into the fun stuff.
