Manufacturer's Description from Swart Amps

This is the amp that started it all.  The Swart Amplifier Co Space Tone 6V6se arose out of musician/recording engineer Michael Swart's attempt to get the most tone and soul from a small, easily manageable package for home/studio use. 5w of pure Class A tone with a breakup and natural tube distortion that is unequaled in modern amplification. Will play 6V6 and 6L6 and is Cathode Biased, so no biasing hassle. The ST-6V6se is now housed in an excellent finger-jointed cabinet covered with Lacquered TWEED. It's an instant Classic & Michael Swart favorite. Simply put, this is a KILLER amplifier. This circuit is the heart of Swart Amps: It's all about The Tone. 

 

6V6SE heart and soul - 100% Class A - ALL Tube Circuit - Point to Point Wiring - Heyboer Iron - 
Carbon Comp Resistors - Mallory, Atoms, & JJ Caps - Cloth Covered Wire - Tube Rectification - No Solid State ALLOWED!

 

Each ST-6V6se is hand-wired, point to point, then burned-in and tested before leaving Swart Amplifier Co. There are no circuit or turret boards resulting in the most direct path, this harkening back to when ALL amps were hand wired with care.. Cloth wire is used for hookup. Simply put, there are no semiconductors or solid state diodes anywhere as the Space Tone is 100% valve powered.

The Supro inspired cabinet is hand-made finger jointed pine and covered with high quality tweed, then lacquered for years and years of wear, all with the vintage style and great tone.   

Tubes include the excellent JJ 12AX7, JJ 6V6GT, and JJ GZ-34 as stock (Fee free to sub a NOS 5Y3 for sweeter breakup and slightly less headroom). It's a Pure triode front end into the great 6V6 all cleaned by GZ-34 tube rectification. All tube designs disappeared because of the extra expense and the emergence of ultra-cheap solid state diodes. We feel that eliminating ALL solid state devices is necessary to get the BEST tone without the harsh, metallic sound of solid state. 

Sound is amazingly BIG, BOLD, and SOULFUL, with a combination of grit and complexity of tone that is immediately apparent. Go from super clean to TUBE distortion with the turn of the volume knob.  It's safe to say that you'll have NEVER played anything quite like this little gem.
