Total Package

By Jim-i0yZU

from Tulsa, OK

The Super Redhead is the soul mate for the NS CR4M or any double bass. This little amp packs some serious tonal capabilities and highlights the sweet tones/articulations of the double bass.My fretless Fenders take on a new light with the Redhead. I have been gigging with this amplifier for over a year and no issues, except for replacing a caster. I highly recommend this amplifier for both the gigging and sessions player. The ampfier's low-Z direct provides a very clean and controllable signal at the console which allows you to get the tone of your cabinet in the mains. The Super Redhead packs enough punch to cut through the loudest of stage mixes. No disappointmnets here.

This Amp is Awesome

By leomonster

from Massachussettes

See all my reviews

I have owned this combo for about 4 years now. I've played large clubs (with an extension cab +100 Watts) I've recorded with it (Mic-ed up or line out-Sometimes both), I've played smaller venues with it, Played in Churhes and bars. I've done rehearsals with Jazz quartet, Blues band, Classic rock n roll, Thumpin' Funkin' (My Favorite), Pop and Punk Music. I've got a host of bases that I use. From Passive classic 4 strings, Fretless', and Active 5 strings. This amp makes em all sound good. Turn down the tweeter all the way for that classic P-bass thump or blues band finger style, Turn the tweeter up all the way for Thrash/Punk it handles it all. This amp has replaced all but the smallest of practice amps for me. I would recomend this Amp to anybody who see's themselves as a pro or future pro. The ONLY draw back is that as I get older it seems to get heavier. I wish that SWR had put a couple of handles on the top of it.

SWR Super Redhead Combo

By tdub

from Elsewhere

See all my reviews

I recently sold mine and it was pre-fender BTW. I liked this cab a lot when I owned it but mine did not handle my active 5 string very good at all when I played on the B string. The tone of SWR is incredible don't get me wrong but I played out with this cab once after I bought it a couple years ago and because of that show I could not trust the redhead. It was a small venue by the way. I bought an SVT 4-pro and Ampeg 410hlf immediately to use for live gigs and kept the Swr redhead at home for practice. I paired my SWR redhead with an SWR Bigfoot 2X12. I had the bass turbo pulled out and gain set appropriately and yes it was a 4 ohm cab so everything matched up and no I don't abuse my stuff. My 4 string basses sounded great through it. Bottom line if you are gonna buy SWR and play a 5 string maybe play through the redhead first or try the 4x10 goliath with a separate head. P.S. I kept the SWR bigfoot 2x12 the Redhead just didn't work as well for me.I hope this helps.

This combo is the best all around amp I have ever heard. To be so little this amp is the best.


Super Redhead Combo Amp

By Bltimmon

from Winston-Salem, NC

See all my reviews

I think this is a sweet little amp because it has great tone at a low or high volume. It has great features and it sounds awesome with my warwick corvette 5 string. You have all the power you need with 350w plus a additional 100w with a extended speaker cab added. It's also easy to transport with its casters and its protective front cover.


Great Tone Great Amp

Just pick this up to replace another amp. I must said this amp sound so sweet if properly setup. I use this amp with another 2/10 cab and everybody took notice right away. Thanks.


little package big coulones

By marcus maximus

from western ny

I've owned this little beast for 10 years playing classic rock. If used properly with full sound reinforcement this is a killer unit. Outdoor gigs I use the 2 X 10 SWR extention cab. This amp is rugged, I've seen it dropped several times by our roadies and I'm talking substancial crunchers. Love it best amp I've ever owned.

Pretty good amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've been using this amp for two years at my jazz gigs and it always gets the job done, although I've blown it up a few times. The peak is amazing but the bass ad treble sometimes are a bit too extreme.


Great amp

By Marc Nadene

from Kalamazoo, MI

I play this amp in a church and it has no problem filling the room. It sounds great. Definitely a great value.


Best Amp for the Money

By Big Jim-KM7f1

from Pasadena, Texas

I have been using my Super Redhead for 3 years. No problem. Really projects the sound out where you want it. Replaced 12AX7 with groove tube - now it is really hot. I play a Fender MB5 Bass. Thanks, Jim


Super Redhead

By Bassplayer_2003

from Tennessee

The SWR Super Redhead definitely lives up to the "super" in its name. This is the best amp on the market for the money. After playing for almost 30 years, and going through dozens of amp brands, SWR is still the supreme amp on the market. Everyone else is second place or further back.


It's tight

It's a very good amp clear sound.


Super redhead is fantastic

By normy

from Tavistock, Devon England

I own an SWR Super Redhead and the name speaks for itself - super. It copes really well under such tough conditions and is easily on a par with the Vox AC30 I use. The sound is fantastic and very similar to John Paul Jones' who uses SWR gear. Fantastic.


Could use better quality wire inside

By gil-_q95D

from Sacramento, CA

Fan is noisy! Casters are undersized. Quality of caps and resistors inside are middle of the road quality. Needs a better connection from amp to speaker. With all of these negatives, it sounds pretty good. Just think with a little more put into it what it could sound like! I did upgrade these areas and it was worth the time and money!


Simply Awesome

By Phoenix

from Franklin, TN

I've used this amp multiple times at my church. It is owned by a southern rock band who uses my church youth room for practice. Both when I play and they play, it sounds absolutley amazing. You don't have to worry about highs or lows, and you don't have to turn it up much to drown everyone else in the band and break any glass within three miles. If by some chance this amp doesn't have enough power, it's external speaker out will allow to you hook it up to another cab for more volume. Overall, this amp rocks your socks (and any other clothing you are wearing) off!


Best Bass Combo Amp on the Market!

By Dulcimerist

from Billings, MT

See all my reviews

The SWR Super Redhead Bass Combo is the best music gear purchase I've ever made! I initially bought this as an amp for my electro-acoustic mountain dulcimer, as the Super Redhead's success with acoustic instruments is legendary. This is by far the purest and BEST amp I've ever played through in my 22 years as a musician, and its 105dB SNR is truly amazing! Coupled with my SWR Goliath Junior III 4-Ohm cab, the Super Redhead cranks out 450 watts of power, and its single 19" rack space is perfect for a Furman power conditioner or an effects unit. The Super Redhead also features a wooden front cover to protect the grille and controls during storage and transport, and the cover doubles as a tilt-back stand while you play. This truly is the best bass combo amp on the market, and I highly recommend it!


not ready for the road

By Dirty Uncle Brad

from Chico, Ca

I blew mine within the first 50 shows. It's a good amp for a hobbyist or someone who isn't going to push it but for a touring musician or someone who likes to play a lot, stay away, it's a practice amp on steroids and you will blow it. I bought it for the big whallop in a small package but the unit didn't handle distortion well and heated up quick whenever I pushed it past 5 on the volume knob, distortion or not. It is great for recording and farting around with different styles but wasn't nearly as rugged as I thought it would be and I went back to my half stack gladly.
