*Price drop: £200*
This was my main gigging amp for years before switching to using Ashdown amps. An early model after they changed the name from 'Basic 350’ (1994 perhaps…?). It was always more than loud enough to deal with even the largest venues (I used to run a Goliath II 4x10 and Eden 1x15 for the big rooms). One of the most clear and articulate sounding amps I’ve ever used (aside from other SWRs), with an extremely tight and clean low end.
350W RMS into 4 ohms
Tube preamp (1x 12AX7)
3 bands of EQ with variable mid
Effects loop with an effects blend control
XLR balanced ouput with line and direct switch
Convenient tuner send
19"W x 3.5"H x 10.125"D: 16.5 lbs (without case)
Original owner's manual
Comes with a Gator 6U rack case.
Pickup from Bradford or postage at buyers expense.
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.
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...

Hi all, I'm selling my SWR Silverado combo, with 4x8" speakers with tweeter. I've had this amp for about 7-8 years, and unfortunately it hasn't had the use it deserves, and for the last few years it has been in the spare room. I'm in the process of buying a house, and not only will I not have space for this, I would like to use the money to fund moving, so, unfortunately (or fortunately, from the amp's perspective?) it must find a better home.
This is a fantastic amp, and I used it around the house a few times before it went into the spare room. It has a great, tight delivery, with even response across the range, and no boominess. I intend to upload a demo and pictures in the next day or 2 and more information. In the meantime, this will be a placeholder, and any interested parties should respond here or send me a message with any questions.
Selling this monster bass cabinet as I don’t really have space to accommodate it any more. Huge 700w power handling, thunderous lows and crystal clear top end, this was the cab of choice for many top players before fender bought over and shut down SWR ☹️. It’s been gigged regularly and is cosmetically a bit tatty (the carpet covering at the back is a bit worse for wear)The slot-in casters were ditched a long time ago. However it’s in perfect working order otherwise. Collection or can arrange to get it to you in Central belt Scotland.
