Redhead With Big Bottom


SWR have announced a new version of their Redhead bass combo to mark its 20th anniversary. Here’s the story in their own words taken directly from their press release…
‘This year marks the 20th anniversary of a love affair between bassists and the most influential bass combo amplifier in history – the SWR Redhead. The original Redhead, introduced in 1988, revolutionized bass guitar amplification by combining SWR’s crystal-clear full-range tube preamp with a robust solid-state power platform into a rock solid, yet easily portable 2 X 10 cabinet. Loaded with two state-of-the-art 10� speakers and a high frequency horn, the Redhead sounded simply phenomenal and offered unprecedented patching options designed to meet the standards of discerning bassists, whether playing live or in the studio. Twenty years later, its features are far more than just relevant – they remain industry standards.
In celebration of this 20th anniversary, SWR once again raises the bar, and introduces the newly redesigned Redhead bass amplifier. Embodying more than just a face lift, the new Redhead design incorporates innovative and attractive new features that will make bassists everywhere fall in love all over again.
The tradition of innovation continues today stronger than ever, and SWR remains faithful to its full-range, high fidelity and ultra-clean roots. It’s all part of SWR’s continued commitment to bassists who seek equipment that not only does the job, but also actually enhances their overall musical experience, contributes to their creative process and amplifies their future.’
