What We Think

When we saw Swart was diving into their first full EL-84 powered amp, we wondered how it would differ from the traditionally American sounds we were used to from Swart. After first listen, we couldn't be more excited about the Mod 84!! While most people will instinctively associate the "British Chime" with EL-84's, this is a completely different beast. The amp is harmonically rich and capable of bold and rounded cleans while still retaining great attack. The amp is super responsive and loves single coils and humbuckers alike. It's like someone added an open airiness to a sound that's typically straight forward and aggressive. Throw in the onboard verb and tremolo, along with tube rectification - and Swart now has their EL-84 counterpart to the Atomic Space Tone! This amp is a winner on multiple fronts. 

Manufacturer's Description from Swart Amps

And now for something different... Swart using the 6BQ5? Well, we wanted to shift the paradigm and leave our favorite 6V6 for the the veritable EL-84, actually an early favorite of ours 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, über cool suitcase amp, an amp we still power up with a grin to this day, and an amp in use BEFORE the seminal Space Tone 6V6se. Michael loved that suitcase enough to make it live on in sonic suitcase heaven, socks replaced with hand laid wire, irons, and tubes. While finding a suitcase for every tone junkie seemed daunting, a cool pine cab combo covered in vintage style tolex seemed a logical way out. Enter the all-new MOD 84....
 
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 15wpc, powered by two EL-84 with 12AX7 first stage and our favorite 12DW7 for that great Swart reverb. Once again, Michael employs 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.
 
Ok, so what does it REALLY sound like? The MOD84 has some of the best composed, yet soulful, cleans we've seen in our shop but with the ability to intertwine some fur and angst with some push and attack.  It's got that Swart harmonic richness while still being open and transparent with that great Swart touch sensitivity.  This is really a do it all amp that can cross many musical genres. It's literally been a hit with everyone that tries it and it almost defies a pat description as it sounds quite different from the "stock" EL-84 stereotype, almost mixing a bit of American and British into something truly unique. As you can tell, we're diggin' this one.
