    Just a little humor there, but true nonetheless. For over 15 years we here at SWR have been putting everything we know about bass into the SWR product line. We’ve earned a reputation for designing and manufacturing gear that has changed the way bassists hear themselves.

The SWR Sound “to go.” Speaker Complement: Speaker Complement: (1) Custom Designed 10" SWR driver (1) Custom Designed Piezo tweeter Power Output: 80 Watts RMS, 100 Watts RMS @ 4 Ohms...
  • Page 4 True low fundamentals (one of the sonic signatures of all SWR amplifiers) require lots of headroom and air motion. That’s why we recommend that 5-string players use an extension cabinet to increase the power output of the amplifier and get more air moving.

    this control clockwise, more of the effect can be heard in the overall sound. When the Blend control is fully clockwise, no dry or unaffected signal is heard other than the output of your effect device. This type of control and patching arrangement is very effective in reducing noise caused by effects devices and in maintaining a more natural sound.
  • Page 6 The impedance of the speaker should be 8 ohms or greater. If you wish to connect two additional cabi- nets be sure their combined impedance is not less than 8 ohms (equivalent to two 16 ohm speaker cabinets in parallel). Recommended speaker cabs from SWR are: Workingman’s 1X10T, Workingman’s 1X15T, Workingman’s 2X10T, Workingman’s 4X10T. STEREO HEADPHONES JACK By inserting a set of stereo headphones into this jack you will be able to monitor your sound or practice without disturbing your neighbors.
  • Page 7 replacement will be easy at almost any computer, electronics or pro audio store. NOTE: The rating for this cable is 3-conductor, 10 amperes. This is a rating of the current capacity of the cable, designated for higher power-drawing devices like amplifiers. If replacement is neces- sary, or if you wish to buy a longer cable, look for the rating on the cable and be sure it is at least 10 amps.

Active Input The Active input jack should be used with instruments having a built-in (on-board) preamp that will pro- duce signals over 1 volt RMS.

    This type of control and patching arrangement is very effective in reducing noise caused by effects devices and in maintaining a more natural sound. If your effects device has a similar control, we suggest leaving it set to its maximum effect/minimum dry signal position and using the Effects Blend control for this function.

  • Page 14 A/C LINE CORD RECEPTACLE Accepts a standard A/C power cable (supplied with the Workingman’s 12 in the United States), used with almost all current musical, professional and household electronic devices. If it becomes misplaced, replacement will be easy at almost any computer, electronics, or pro audio store. NOTE: The rating for this cable is 3-conductor, 10 amperes.

  • Page 19 The Treble control operates in a tonal area that extends through and beyond the usual Treble control range. It may be thought of as a “transparency” control. Boosting the control will open up the sound of a dull instrument, particularly in conjunction with the piezo tweeter in the Workingman’s 15. However, this is also the range of string rattle, finger slides, pickup clicks, etc.

    LIMITER LED The Limiter LED lights when your signal has reached the Limiter threshold, letting you know that the Limiter circuit has been activated. NOTE: No harm is being done to your amplifier when this LED lights or stays lit. THREE WAY SELECTOR SWITCH The top position, labeled Full Range, activates both the tweeter and the 15"...
