Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "For the metal player."
Overall: First and foremost, I mainly play all types of metal. I tried these speakers on a whim from various different reviews and from reading all of the info that Eminence has to offer on their website. I recommend checking out their website before you purchase one of their loudspeakers. They have tons of info there and you can download a PDF selection guide or even email their tech support for help on exactly what you're looking for. I am very pleased with my choice. The distorted sound of this speaker is great; it excels in the low end and has a nice, clean high end that isn't ice picky. It has TONS of headroom due to the wattage it can handle. I loaded a Swamp Thang with a Governor in a vertical 2x12 with two 2 1/2" ports in the middle. Governor on top, Swamp on the bottom. Definitely my favorite combo of speakers now. The Governor has the V30'ish mid-range British sound that most metal players desire, and the Swamp rounds it off with its powerful low end. This cab is a completely different animal now. I definitely recommend it for metal. And the best part, made in the USA!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Swamp thang"
Sound: The swamp thang tames the fizz on the 6505 it's a dark speaker and I like how it brings out the lows but you lose some pick attack so I paired it with a WGS Retro 30 and bam what a combination Ease of Use: It's a speaker just wore it up and go Quality: It has a huge magnet and is built like a tank Value: Well worth the money Manufacturer Support: Never had any reason to speak with them The Wow Factor: Not much of a wow factor it is only a speaker for goodness sakes Overall: Very dark speaker buts pairs really well with a WGS retro 30 in my 6505 combo
Style of Music: Metal and harder rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
