Morgan Amps SW50 Amplifier Head Driftwood Chilewich
This amp produces a sweet singing sustain even on clean notes. Intentionally designed to be the loudest cleanest it could be with 2x6L6s it is still capable of producing a warm compressed natural overdrive. The SW50 is a stage and studio monster. Currently on tour with James Taylor, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Chris Young and Frankie Ballard. If you listen to modern country music chances are you have heard the SW50.
The SW50 utilizes a special level control. Its job is to control the amount of gain available in the power section of the amplifier. You will notice after about 3 o’clock on the level control you are adding overdrive to the power section. This allows you to use the level control at lower volumes without sacrificing your tone. The bass and treble controls interact with each other to give you a wide range of tones. The Bass Emphasis switch changes the center point of the mid frequencies allowing you to get even more bass out of the amp. The bright switch is designed to bring in enough top end for even the darkest guitar but without adding any ice picky highs.
This amp was designed to be that familiar black face styled tone from the mid 60’s but with added clarity and string to string definition that is unrivaled in any similar design. The original amplifier was later sold for $45,000. The customer was happier with his Morgan. Handwired in the USA.
