Swart Night Light Attenuator Pedal

The mail would start innocently enough: "Hi, I love your amps!" Then would come the hook: "So..., can I play the STR-Tweed in the same room with Aunt Rene?  She's not a heavy napper but her hearing aid can be dialed back."  Sure, Jimmy.

Indeed. Truth be told, even the little ST-6V6se would make Aunt Rene's eyes change hue given a heavy hand and increased endorphins.  But we love the 6V6se, STR, and AST and really didn't feel like saddling each with Master volume.   The combos deserve the Swart Hallmark purity of circuit.

Enter the dreaded A Word: Attenuator. Yeah, we know.  And Sir Michael thought there were plenty of attenuators to choose from.  On the other hand, could thy Swart Magic come into play yet again, moving this device to another plane?  Well, after a solid year of research, trials, virtual black holes, and head scratching, we have the answer:

YES!  Meet the Swart Night Light; there's NOTHING like it.

The night light is  very portable and built like a rock.  It's the size of a small effects pedal: 4.67" L x 3.68" W x 1.18" H.  This thing can practically fit in your pocket.

The Night Light was designed specifically for the ST-6V6se, STR, AST, and AST Pro.   But even though optimized for the Swart brigade, the Night Light will work with ANY amplifier 22w or less with the light compression, 30w with it off.  In addition, it's designed for 4-8ohms load.  16ohms will not work with this version of NL.

Attenuation settings (4 Attenuation Levels)

  • Filament BULB Compression Mode
    This mode runs the attenuated signal through a Swart jewel lamp filament, bringing a subtle tube compression/brown sound goodness.  Ever wonder what your signal sounded like through a light bulb?   You'll be addicted in seconds. NOTE: This switch ONLY works with LEVEL chickenhead at 12oclock



  • Bypass compression mode
    Removes the light compressor out of the circuit for more natural dynamics. With level at 12oclock, this is least attenuation/highest volume setting.



  • Heavy duty 3 position Switch
    This main chicken head switch allows you to switch between FOUR different attenuation settings.  At first setting, or 12oclock, the NL can cycle between the COMP and DECOMP switch which brings two levels.  DECOMP is least attenuated or loudest setting with COMP position bringing more attenuation via the bulb filament. Turn the switch to 2oclock will bring more attenuation, bypassing the DECOMP/COMP switch. The lowest setting is about the same loudness as your guitar strin
    gs.

Special Features

  • Guitar Amp, guitar line level out
    (works in attenuation mode or bypassed)


    - Allows you to send the complete amp signal to another guitar amp. Now you an sound like Jimi in BOLD AS LOVE!  Well, maybe.   You COULD.  Seriously, have you heard two Swarts together?   You should. .

    - You can send the AST effects, reverb and Tremolo to a standard non effects amp. This allows you to run the AST in stereo with another amp sharing the effects between the two amps.


    - With the Night Light it is now possible to get the AST sound into your 200 watt live guitar amp. Just plug the Night Light into the AST; set it to the sound you like and run a line from the Night Light to your 200 watt stack for ear shattering levels.


    - it is now easy to run a Space tone into a AST or a AST into a Space Tone. 
    It's a virtual blue night light show of psychedelic craziness.  And it looks cool.  Keep your 3 yr old entertained till the wee hours.
