Tone Atomic Jr
5W SE Class A • TRIODE REVERB • 6V6/6L6
Tube Rectified • 14lbs of Tonal Bliss w/Swart Verb
The new ST-Atomic Jr starts off with the heart of our ever-popular ST-6V6se with the addition of a year in the making, triode reverb stage utilizing a dedicated 12DW7 fed into a nifty spring tank for surprisingly BIG REVERB, especially for a cabinet this size. Actually, for ANY size cabinet. (Wait till you hear Greg V's samples ).
The tonal variations and REVERB in this little monster must be be heard to be believed. Most amps this size attempting reverb and big tone tend to be underwhelming. Not so with the 14lb Class A ST-Atomic Jr.
There is a cool switchable gain
option in place of the 6V6se feedback switch. When in circuit, the amp
has more cleans and take a bit longer to break-up. It's a slightly
more controlled result. Flip it out of circuit and you have slightly
less compression with a more raw take, quicker to get into the fun stuff.
Think of it as HOT SWITCH NOW like the good ole Krispy Kreme
Space Tone Atomic Jr Specifications
Like all Swart amps, the circuit is point to point, hand-wired and CATHODE BIASED with no need to mess with adjustments when rolling tubes.
The Atomic Jr has two driver/preamp
tubes comprised of one 12AX7 and one 12DW7 feeding either a 6V6 (stock)
or 6L6 family power tube. We also keep the simple tone cut bringing
the least complexity, integral in keeping touch sensitivity and transparency.
Of course, the Atomic Jr. relies on tube rectification for PS
filtering with a JJ 5AR4/GZ-34 as stock with the ability to run a NOS
5Y3 for more Sag, compression, earlier breakup, and that Brown Sound
(it also brings 34v less on the tubes).We want to avoid that harshness
that seems to ride along with solid state rectification. Try a vintage
5Y3 for a bit more SAG and less voltage on the power tubes.
The intro pricing is coming in at
$1199. Please contact your nearest Swart Dealer. We're
having trouble keeping these beasts in stock.
Sizing is the same as the ST-6V6se:
You'll be amazed.
