He is right about the Ampeg being more of a muddy/bluesy tone and the SWR being a little more crisp and defined. What I have seen is that SWR has reliability problems, unless you purchase the more expensive units. Also, try looking at GK for definition/clarity/value. They are even more defined for jazz/funk and are better built than SWR. There is a reason why so many jazz players use the Microbass and 1001RB combos/heads.
