SWR Super Redhead Combo & Son of Bertha 1x15. SOLD!
£400
Nr. Bristol

Recommended Posts

Up for sale is my SWR Super Redhead with extension Son of Bertha 1x15 Cabinet.

Both have been in my possession since new (purchased 2002). Purely need the funds at the moment to pay the bills which is why they're up for sale and very competitively priced. £400 for both sold as a pair. Depending on interest I may decide to split, but at present am only selling together.imageproxy.php?img=&key=d49e236f730b63a2

Would Ideally like a pickup, or meet-up halfway (distance dependent). For anyone with a project studio, I don't think you can get finer that a 'one thing does most' studio combo. The original power on/off rocker switch has been replaced (as visible in pics)

The 1x15 has been replaced with a Beyma LX60 (Version1) after the original SWR cone's centre started to make a bid for freedom many years ago! Specs of the Beyma can be found in the link: The addition of the 1x15 really helps add some weight to the sound, although the combo alone is perfectly suited to most normal playing situations.

Both have had covers since day 1, so the carpeting is in excellent condition and I even dragged out the original spiral bound Super Redhead manual... Am sad to let these go, but hopefully someone out there knows the SWR legacy and wants to put these to good use - Sometimes lighter doesn't always mean better...

A few specs:

Bristol... North East?  

 

We wish it WAS in the North East. No dodgy geography from Jassbass or myself.

I had the normal redhead many years ago, best sounding combo I ever used, the normal redhead was a little under powered, but this beautify should have plenty of phat...

Top rig. £400! It's a no brainer really. Wish you were closer as I'm sorely tempted and I don't need it! GLWTS.

Yes it's heavy, but my god that is a vast amount of amp for the money. One of the best bargains I've seen all year.

      Ashdown C210 300W Kickback Combo Amp. Not had loads of use, couple of scuffs on the corners but other than that a great amp. Bought in 2018 as I joined a band, but sadly in the 2 years since we failed to play a single gig and it is now just collecting dust in the spare room as I tend to just play my acoustics. More than welcome to come down and try. Thanks for looking and if you have any questions just send me a message. Would prefer cash on collection, but I can arrange courier at buyers own risk and cost. Open to reasonable offers.

      For sale here is my Phil Jones bass cub. Great little two channel amps, for home or small gigs - it's just not getting much use at the moment.
      Had this quite a few years but it's mostly been used at home. Includes carry case, IEC lead, manual and two aux cables. Great sound and super light/portable.
      Pickup from Chessington, Surrey for £375 £350 or delivered in the UK OR EU for £395 £370
      Any questions let me know.
      Many thanks
      Dan
