Beautifully equipped and fantastic sounding.

2008 marks the 20th anniversary of a love affair between bassists and one of the most influential bass combo amplifiers in history — the SWR Redhead. The original Redhead was a revolution in bass guitar amplification, combining SWR's crystal-clear, full-range tube preamp with a robust solid-state power platform into a rock solid, yet easily portable 2X10 cabinet. Loaded with two state-of-the-art 10" speakers and a high frequency horn, the Redhead bass amp sounded simply phenomenal and offered unprecedented patching options designed to meet the needs of discerning bassists, whether playing live or in the studio.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary, SWR raises its own bar with the newly redesigned Redhead bass amplifier. Two custom-designed Eminence drivers and a Foster horn provide the excellent sound, while several design and feature innovations make this more than just a product face lift. It's a whole new Redhead with lots of control and I/O options to entice any bassist. Fall in love again, with SWR's Redhead Bass Combo Amp.
