in conjunction with guitarist Greg V, this is the no holds
to the professional musician's need for an AST built for the road but
without any loss in Swart style. Introducing the AST PRO, which offers
everything the AST
is famous for, plus the following mods:
Cab w/Recessed Chassis for Protection
Elevated to accommodate Larger Speaker
BV-25M Speaker (Greenback based, but better)
Panel w/Switchable External Out/In & Enlarged Port
Rear Panel now includes Night Light Input!
Large Rubber Feet for Vibration/Protection
15 1/2" W x 10 1/8" D X 18 7/8" H
what does this all mean?
Well, sound-wise, the AST PRO sounds a tad "bigger"
than the AST.
The cab is 3/4 an inch deeper to allow the recessed chassis for
additional knob/switch protection. This might add just a bit more heft
to the bottom as well. The enlarged port in the PRO panel, now standard
on all AST, gives a slightly more open sound. And the new switchable
external output makes it easier to drive another cab, bypassing the
internal speaker (8ohm output).
