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
G12H-30 Anniversary Speaker
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, you're looking at the move from the Mojotone BV-25
speaker to the Celestion G12H-30 Anniversary. This speaker brings a
slightly more refined top end then the Mojo with
subjectively more extended bottom. 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).
