The SM-900 is truly the “State of SWR’s Art” in bass amplification electronics. The SM-900 is only slightly deeper and heavier than the SM-500, yet delivers twice the power and includes new features such as our very flexible tone section. Along with shelving-type Bass and Treble controls, the equalization section consists of two independent 3-band semi-parametric EQs. This provides the user with two analog presets via a silent footswitch, or three presets (EQ 1, EQ 2, or EQ 1+2) using the manual slide switch located on the front panel. You can now go from a solid groove sound to soloing with just the tap of your foot.
The SM-900 also boasts a studio-oriented “side chain” effects loop allowing the user the diversity of an effects unit while maintaining the constant clarity and natural tone of the instrument. SWR’s exclusive “To Tuner” jack is also on a side chain. Remember when you had to unplug your bass from your amp and hook into your tuner and frantically tune up between songs? Or patch the tuner between your instrument and amp, thus degrading sound quality? Those times are history. Add to the above both stereo and mono effects loops, stereo/mono operation of the power amps, biamp capabilities, up to 900 watts RMS of power, an extremely quiet preamp, a “non-pumping” limiter, complete recording ability, and SWR’s proven reliability and sound quality, and you have what we feel is the best bass amplifier made anywhere in the world.
