They're just really back ordered and they had the good sense to stop taking deposits when they couldn't keep up with the demand. After this thread, and the info I found through research, I'm not that interested in Swart anymore, it looks like the tone I'm chasing is in pre-Fender type amps. and you're right: you're chasing pre-Fender tones.... The only people in the US I know making octal preamps of any kind is Nocturne and V47.

They're a really small operation, but they're working on the backlog. After this thread, and the info I found through research, I'm not that interested in Swart anymore, it looks like the tone I'm chasing is in pre-Fender type amps. Nocturne is expensive and V47 is backed up/who knows how long until you can get what you want.

Aren't there some recent builders make copies of the early Gibson amps? [edit] The Vox Night Train 15 (head or combo) does 15w and has a gain knob so you could dial in grit to taste.

Here we have a 1964 Fender Bandmaster head and matching 2x12" cabinet.

Pre-CBS, Fender Electric Instruments, about 40 watts from two 6L6s, great tremolo.

Immediately post-plexi, lay-down mains transformer, four channels, eight inputs, loudspeakers are "golden sand" 1970-dated Celestion G12Ms....

Handwired, no master volume, 45 watts from a pair of 6L6s, tube rectifier, silverface cosmetics, blue sparkle grille, 4x10" CTS loudspeakers wired at 2 ohms for incredible punch and headroom, two channels, great classic Fender... It's a 4x10" bass combo in earth tones but otherwise bears little similarity to Fender's tweed Bassman that so influenced Marshall.

but depending on EXACTLY what you're after, Vintage 47 or Nocturne Moonshine '39 might be better suited.

The V47s are valco designs, the Moonshine is a modern take on a Gibson EH-185... If I had the cash, I'd be buying a Moonshine, myself. The Nocturne Moonshine sounds wonderful in the clips.

Single phenolic base 6V6, hand-wired circuit with 10" alnico speaker. Changed handle and power cord for safety(you’re welcome). Mid-60s factory Top Boost AC-30, designed by Dick Denney, JMI production, grey panel, original transformers, housed in a very authentic North Coast repro cabinet riding on a beautiful repro chrome dolly, Weber Blue Dog alnico...

Early '60s, JMI (Jennings Musical Industries) production, small student combo, 4 watts from a single EL84, ECC83/EF86 preamp, EZ80 tube rectifier, black vinyl, lovely brown Vox grille cloth, hinged handle, has added footswitch jack...

They're a really small operation, but they're working on the backlog.
