Atomic Space Tone
What can we say about the Atomic Space Tone that hasn’t been said already? Based on an old Gibson Scout (but flavored with 6V6′s), El Diablo’s personal Swart Atomic Space Tone has been from coast to coast and across the seas. Once you hit the Launch switch, and turn up that gorgeous, swirling tube tremolo, your guitar will be able to summon tumbleweeds, dust devils and pistol duels at high noon. Truly an amazing amp that mellows and warms up single-coils, and makes humbuckers sound like they’ve been aged in bourbon.
Powered by Twin EH 6v6′s putting out 18-22 cathode-biased watts, the AC is cleaned and rectified by the reliable JJ 5AR4. A 12AX7 does duty as the driver and bias regulated Tremolo. Ever heard tube tremolo? You will now. Simply put, if you’re a tremolo fan, you won’t go back. Reverb is all tube as well.

Then I simply added the usual mixing techniques... a touch of eq, compression, limiting, plus plate and room reverbs on the acoustic guitar only, *** all of the reverb on the electric part is courtesy of the Swart!! ***.
