The Antares is the latest offering from one our favorite amp companies. The AST has always been one of the most popular amps in the Swart lineup. With the release of the much loved EL84 driven Mod 84, there have been people asking about a 6V6 based version. With the Antares, Swart has combined the best features of the Mod 84 and the AST into a whole new beast!
It's more than an 18w AST on steroids, more than an AST with top mounted controls. It's the Swart Magic worked on twin, push-pull 6V6 with a bit bigger reverb, deeper bottom-end foundation, with a new custom output transformer borrowed from the MOD84 Lineage. It features Swart's effective switchable three-way like on the STR-Tremolo. Toss in the AST's all time favorite, über sweet tube bias tremolo and you have the makings of an addiction. And yes, it does have top mounted controls for easy access. And to top it off, it's all housed within an all new Pine cab with tilted back baffle.
Like the AST, the Swart Antares can also run 2 x 6L6 power tubes for a slightly increased 22 watt output if so desired. Stock, however, the Antares will ship with dual 6V6's putting out 18 watts.
