The mother ship has landed! The SM-1500 bass head is SWR’s new flagship amp. Incredibly versatile, it has two separate power modules providing an astonishing 1,500 watts (at 4 ohms in the bridged mono mode or 750 watts per side in either stereo or dual mono), an onboard tube-driven compressor and an array of tone controls that would be right at home in the world’s best studios. The SM-1500 will absolutely rock the house while providing the crystal-clear, full-range tone that the world’s premiere bassists have come to expect from SWR.
