The Sweetwater-exclusive Egnater SW45 tube amp head was commissioned by Sweetwater's guitar buyers, and it has exceeded our expectations for tonal flexibility. After many revisions and tweaks, we came up with an amazingly versatile amplifier that's ready to serve up a wide range of iconic guitar tones. The SW45's two-input design is based on two of the most-recorded amplifiers ever. The Classic channel has all the jangle, spank, and grit of a classic Plexi head, while the Modern channel is voiced liked a hot-rodded JCM800 for ultra-aggressive tone with incredible articulation. Between the two, you'll be primed for any session or gig with the Sweetwater-exclusive Egnater SW45.

Designed to be your go-to amplifier for iconic tone

Sweetwater's guitar buyers worked closely with Bruce Egnater to make the SW45 amp head a sonic powerhouse. You've got two different channels each voiced completely differently - in fact, it's more like having two amps in one. You'll find that there's actually a separate input for each channel, due to the complexity of the design. They are not footswitchable, and an ABY switch will not work around this. These are trade-offs for even better tone, and also what makes the SW45 such an amazing-sounding, wide-ranging amp.

Clean and Dirty channels give you the sound of two epic amplifiers

Whether you're a session player or a studio owner, you know that you need a wide range of tones right at your fingertips. You also know that more isn't always better if those tones are stale. That's why we designed the SW45 with two very different channels that span decades of epic guitar tones. With the Egnater SW45, your session will be off to a great start from the moment you plug in.

Handwired amp by Egnater for Sweetwater

Bruce Egnater actually held an amp-building workshop here at Sweetwater Sound, and we were really impressed at his extensive knowledge of laying out components. We worked closely with Bruce to design an amp that's as tone-packed as possible - the result is the SW45 amp head. The entire design and signal path is the result of multiple revisions, each time getting closer to the tone we wanted. With the Egnater SW45 you're getting an amplifier that was designed from the ground up to give you the sound of two legendary amplifiers - we're sure you're going to be amazed at what we've come up with.
