SWR 550X


Not too much and not too little – our 550x is just righteous, providing world-famous SWR® professional tube preamp tone and 550 watts of full-range power in a convenient two-rack-space configuration. Loud enough for just about any gig, and simple enough for the most plug-and-play bassist, with our exclusive Subwave sub-octave effect onboard, the 550x is a powerful tool in any bassist's arsenal.


Features: 550 watts @ 4 ohms, classic SWR tube preamp with Aural Enhancer, Subwave, studio-quality three-mode XLR out (direct, direct + Subwave, line) with ground lift and level pad, three-band active EQ with variable midrange, automatic limiter with defeat option, side-chain effects loop with blend control, tuner send, speaker on/off switch, Speakon® and 1/4" speaker outputs. Footswitch for Subwave effect included.

19"W x 3.5"H x 14.5"D, 26 lbs.

Yadda yadda yadda. I've owned this head for a few years now, testing it's might through every cab setup imaginable, and have never had a problem with it. I've owned AMPEG's, Eden's, etc, but for have never been able to match the versatility of this unit. Plug in, adjust levels to desired tone, and rock out. I've come into some pretty hard times, and would hate to see this go... But the kids gotta eat.I'm asking $450, and it comes with a certfied Nigel S. Peppercock certificate of approval.
