Greg V w/PRS McCarty & Swart AST 2:53
This jam features a PRS McCarty Humbucker guitar with the most power-tube distortion/grind of any clips I did. It's a long clip but shows the Swart's dynamic range from "cleanish to legato grind" with only the guitars volume control being used, the amp was turned up about 2/3 aprox. From about 1:30 you can hear the notes' distinction even with some power-tube juice.
Nocaster/Bajo Sexto Baritone/Mandoguitar & AST 1:49
This jam features Fender Nocaster, Fender Bajo Sexto Baritone, TEO Mandoguitar all played through the Swart Atomic Space Tone. No external effects - used only the amps reverb and tremolo.
Atomic Space Tone Samples
GREG V • Featured Guitarist
I'm just blown away be the rich tones, feeling, and textures that Greg gets with the Atomic Space Tone. I've heard many samples sent in from talented guitarists but these are some of my favorites due to the soulful interpretation that Greg's playing conveys, bringing introspection without self-indulgence. Notice the complexity in the variation of tones from the AST. And Greg takes the AST all-tube tremolo to subtle perfection. He has the rare ability to blend technical skill and excellent chops with intimacy and grit, never becoming bombastic or showy, something that many guitarists should emulate, and something that many more fail to grasp. Greg didn'tlist any titles or info after the first two samples below, so I named them while listening. I decided to let the whole lot speak, all 25 of them. I often listened to some of these cuts multiple times on repeat as they reminded me of veritable guitar Haikus done from the back porch on a river swamp. kh|Swart Online
