The Swart Antares aims to take the best of their Brit-flavored MOD84 and American-inspired Atomic Space Tone (AST) and meld it into a new, inspiring design.
"Take some of our favorite qualities from the MOD84 and mix it with some of our favorite takes from the AST with that venerable 6V6/6L6 3D holographic, ethereal voodoo... What do you get? Frankly, it's like no other Swart while being like EVERY Swart. It's the ANTARES and we are smitten with this beast."
Featuring twin, push-pull 6V6 with a bit bigger reverb, deeper bottom-end foundation, with a new custom output transformer borrowed from the MOD84 Lineage, the Antares also sports Swart's killer three-way EQ and an all pine cab (with tilted back baffle). Toss in the AST's tube bias tremolo and you have the makings of a very cool amp!
(And yes, it does have top mounted controls for easy access.)
