The 550x carries on the fine tradition of quality craftsmanship, and deep, rich, biting tones that SWR has been producing since the beginning.
This 100-watt entry-level combo amplifier features a basic SWR preamp and EQ (bass, mid, treble), as well as a headphone jack, tuner out jack, and "mix in" jack (so you can practice along with a CD or other audio source).
A unique combination of modern sounds and effects, effortlessly blended with classic engineering and feel makes this beastly amp an instant classic.
Introduced in 1986, the SS-180 was the third model introduced in the SWR product line and features an all-tube preamp section, Variable Limiter, Footswitchable EQ Section, and a solid state power amplifier that delivers 180 Watts into 2 or 4 Ohms and 120 Watts into 8 Ohms.
The upgraded version of the Workingman's 160, this 200 watt monster comes ready to rock, mounted in its own carpeted rack (which includes an open rack space for the effects unit of your choice).
The amp is extremely easy to use, easy to get a usable bass tone. It comes with a limiter circuit, so that over burdening the amp is protected against (it can be disabled).
