Product Description

The Headlite combines lightweight class D amplifier technology with the legendary SWR tube preamp for a full-featured professional quality bass amplifier! The SWR Headlite is a 3.75-pound (1.7 kg), 400-watt dynamo that delivers the tonal clarity SWR amps are famous for, as well as astonishingly thunderous low-end response for such a diminutive package. In addition to convenience, the Headlite offers a full array of professional features, including a studio-quality Line Out, a Compressor circuit, an optional footswitch to engage the Effects Loop or Tuning Mute (it also controls an integrated Tuner) and a three-position Aural Enhancer circuit (Classic, Modern or Bypass).

- Mute Switch with LED Indicator

- True Balanced Line Out (XLR and 1/4 inch) with Ground Lift, Pre/Post Switch and Level Control

The Headlite bass amp head is a result of SWR's ongoing efforts to improve the lives of bassists everywhere, and is part of a completely new generation of innovative, lightweight bass amplification products.

Thanks to the laws of physics, bass instruments in general require substantially more power for accurate amplification than their high frequency counterparts and, until recently, have required extremely heavy transformers and bulky power supplies to produce this needed power. The Headlite was made possible by recent advances in technology that have finally made powerful, lightweight amplifiers and speaker enclosures a reality.

Further, the SWR Headlite is the direct result of exhaustive research and development efforts and countless hours of realworld playing applications that, together, ensured that the SWR standards of quality, excellence and reliability were successfully met.

Ideal as a stand-alone amp in a head/speaker rig or partnered with the Amplite - a matching 400-watt power amplifier - in a multiple power amp rig, the Headlite is an extremely versatile performance tool for stage or studio. The Headlite bass amp head includes a handy accessory bag designed for a Headlite, an Amplite and all the necessary cables.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of SWR products.

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.
