    SWR does it again!

    By Reed-IryOl

    from Santa Barbara, CA

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    I purchased the WorkingPro 700 about one year ago, and have used SWR amps almost exclusively during my vast music career.The WorkingPro 700 has all of the headroom I need coupled with the features I most often use. The amp's tone is tubelessly sweet. I would be amazed if any professional could not find their sound with this unit.I could run down the list of features and why they are important, but every player has his or her own criteria, and I am a man of little words.If you decide on upgrading to this excellent amp, you have made a great investment. Enjoy!

    One Serious Bass Amp

    By Jason Eckard

    from United States

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    I've used a WorkingPro 700 for a few years now for various shows and recording. The tone you can get out of this amp is pretty limited to the SWR standard "Gospel" or "Funk" kinda sounds. Not to say this is bad, but don't expect the variety of tone you might get out of an Eden or Aguliar amp. With that said, this amp has a very responsive EQ set-up and you'll be able to find some kind of semblance of the tone your looking for. Not to mention a FX blend knob. I generally play with a P-Bass and you can get a good gutteral punch with this amp. In terms of power this Amp is an absolute beast. I've actually had it set fire to a 2x10 cab i was using, pretty epic stuff. Right now i use it to power a 4x12 guitar cab or a 2x12 bass cab and it does it perfectly, theirs so much extra power your Bandmates will probably fire you before your reach this amps limit. The WorkingPro also comes with a handy dandy foot-switch which lets control the on-board compressor (which could go toe to toe with some 300 dollar+ out-board bass compressors btw) and use the amps mute switch, i do wish this amp came with a speaker on/off feature like more high end SWR's :-( SWR has always been the Che Guvara of Amps, quality product at a fair price; for the working musician. If your looking for a powerful bass amp to meet your needs, look no further.

    Amazing!

    By Blind Greed Bass

    from Tucson, AZ.

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    I have had this amp for over a year and a half now and absolutely love it. The bass intensifier makes it sound like the earth is about to open up and swallow you alive. Of course the Aural Enhancer just makes your tone sing. For live gigs I am running it through a SWR Workingman's 4x10 & 1x15. For rehearsal I just run the 4x10 other wise the guitarists in my band complain that I am drowning them out(bunch of babies!). For the studio I run my bass's through a Line 6 bass pod XT live with the modeled out through the WorkingPro 700 & my direct signal through a SWR Studio 220 for the tube preamp sound. I track both heads direct and then blend them for the most massive sound ever. If you want a awesome amp that you can dial in any tone, get this one.

    Whoa!

    By Bobby Touche

    from Clearwater, Fl

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    Ok, So I just bought this amp yesterday. It really is an amazing head. At first listen, it sounds like a quality amp. But when I turned on the Bass intensifier it shook the house. Of course, I don't want to just focus on volume and bass, which it really excels on, but it has great articulation. Every note comes out clear. The response is nothing to sneeze at either. Right now I have it coupled with a 2x12 cab, but will be upgrading that soon because this is just too powerful. I was going to buy a Phil Jones Suitcase. Now, I'm not going to knock that amp, because PJB makes a fantastic amplifier, But I needed more power while not going broke. This was the answer for me. My next step will be compression. Then I'll have the perfect sound for me.

    Monster Head

    By Thumper!

    from Texas

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    After playing thru Ampeg, GK, Trace Elliot and Mark Bass Heads I gave this one a try. I can say with great certainty..this is the one for me! I am currently using a totally restored Crate cabinet with two 10's and one 18" driver at 4 ohms (700 watts)and the combo is awesome. I do plan on upgrading in the very near future to the SWR 4X10 and Big Ben 18" cabinet combo. I would recommend this bass head to anyone.

    Loud and Low

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    This amp is louder than ever. I played it out of an ampeg 4x10 cab and I couldn't move my volume knob past 1/4 of the way without drowning out my guitarist. This is a great amp. Definitely worth the money.

    Great all round amp, tons of power.

    By Ulrich

    from Kailua, HI

    Comments about SWR WorkingPro 700 Bass Amplifier:

    I ordered one of the first amps in stock and this thing was well worth it. Cool styling and classic SWR look with a few new cosmetic features. The amp itself sounds great, nice and well rounded. The new Bass Intensifier works great, however I think they cut back on the EQ bass boost in doing so. The bass EQ just doesn't have the same push it did with the other SWR models. However, the Bass Intensifier more than makes up for it. The footswitch turns it on and off and you can really hear the difference with the level up. The rest of amp is familiar to those who play SWR's except for those who played workingman's amps theres a new version of the EQ system. The mid levels are controlled by two knobs, one changes the signal when moved either up or down from neutral and this activates the other knob which adds more precision to the tone. It works great and combined with the bass intensifier gives the musician tons of tonal flexibility. The power is great and leaves a lot of head room. I haven't played a show with it yet but I'm sure it will be more than enough. Anyway, an all round great amp, worth the money and definitely solid buy.
