SWR bass heads, combo amps, and speaker cabinets have earned a stellar reputation for enhancing bassist's overall musicality thanks to their full-range, high-fidelity designs. Founder Steve W. Rabe developed the first SWR bass amps in the early 1980s after working closely with professional bassists in LA. Incorporating the performance and features the pros most wanted, the results were outstanding. Pro bassists everywhere soon fell in love with the features that put SWR bass gear in a class of its own. Some of these features include semi-parametric EQ sections, side-chain effects loops, the Aural Enhancer™ tone-shaping circuit, and in-your-face presence across all frequencies.
As SWR's popularity continued to spread nationwide, the company expanded into bass cabinets. The SWR Goliath bass speaker cab was launched in 1986, giving bassists the perfect complement for their SWR bass amps. The SWR Goliath was the first 4 x 10 bass speaker cabinet to have a built-in horn tweeter. Still popular today, the Goliath 4x10 is one of the most copied speaker cabinets on the market.
No matter if you're selecting a practice amp, a bass amplifier for recording, a bass speaker cab for gigging, or a bass head as your mothership, look to SWR for bass gear that's equipped for the road and sounds fantastic.
