    ^ Swart Space Tone! Don't see a lot of those around. How do you like it?

    Haha, yeah he made it into the shot. I love it, I own two and run them in stereo when I'm at home. I used to play louder amps (went from a 65 Bassman > Morgan AC20 > Matchless Lightning), but the Swarts are perfect for my needs. Surprisingly loud (can keep up with a tame drummer), great acoustic presence, very warm cleans, the dirtiest most 'organic' breakup you've heard, sounds fantastic in the mix with others, etc. If you like small amps at all, I recommend checking one out (the AST is also great but unfortunately too loud for me).

    when otter's jackets dry up and crack apart like a thousand little dry rawhide pellets on the ground before him, who will continue to wash their leather jackets? :D

    not drying and crackingup at all, my vengeful friend

    there is a difference between actual washing and submerging a jacket in water

    I love small amps, especially with that type of circuit. I was thinking about getting a Space Tone a few years back but got a Carr Mercury w/ custom color cabinet and built in attenuator. Great amp but I moved it on because I consolidated my gear collection, which had gotten way out of hand.

    Because it works? Ive washed and dried 4 or 5 leathers and never had an issue, you can knock a jacket down 1 full size with no ill effects so why not?

    Granted one buffalo hide jacket got kinda dry but some conditioner fixed that right up. I wouldnt recommend washing on a regular basis but once or twice really wont hurt it, it is fucking skin after all.
