A country legend to use with your favorite cab.

The Morgan SW50 50W tube guitar head produces a sweet singing sustain even on clean notes through its single G12H75 Celestion Creamback speaker. Intentionally designed to be the loudest and cleanest it could be with two 6L6s, it is still capable of producing a warm compressed natural overdrive.

The SW50 is a stage and studio monster. Currently on tour with James Taylor, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Chris Young and Frankie Ballard. If you listen to modern country music chances are you have heard the SW50.

The SW50 utilizes a special level control. Its job is to control the amount of gain available in the power section of the amplifier. You will notice after about 3 oclock on the level control you are adding overdrive to the power section. This allows you to use the level control at lower volumes without sacrificing your tone.

The bass and treble controls interact with each other to give you a wide range of tones. The Bass Emphasis switch changes the center point of the mid frequencies allowing you to get even more bass out of the amp. The bright switch is designed to bring in enough top end for even the darkest guitar but without adding any ice picky highs. This amp was designed to be that familiar black face styled tone from the mid '60s but with added clarity and string to string definition that is unrivaled in any similar design.

Handwired in the USA.

Joe Morgan has been building, modifying and repairing amplifiers since 1996. His designs are seen in stadiums and arenas all over the world. It is hard to turn on a music awards show without seeing his products. Joe designs for the working musician, whether that means a Sunday morning church gig or touring the world with James Taylor.

Joe will be the first to tell you that tube amps are not rocket science (Joe was part of the engineering team that developed the first GPS satellites). Tube amps are only as good as their components and Morgan chooses the best of the best. Engineered with custom designed Mercury Magnetics transformers to provide the best possible sonic signature they also provide him with the confidence to offer a limited lifetime warranty.
