[NAMM] PRS 2 Channel "C" & 2 Channel "H"
Handmade in Stevensville, Maryland, PRS's new 2 Channel "C" and 2 Channel "H" 50 watt amps feature two channels with independent master volume, treble, mid, bass, and gain controls with global reverb.
The lead channel offers "smooth distortion with liquid sustain" while the clean channel has "shimmering, clean highs and extensive headroom" but can be overdriven at maximum settings. Both amps feature effects loops with adjustable send and return and are fixed bias.
A Cinemag ("C") transformer and 2 EL34 power tubes in the 2 Channel "C" amplifier provide vintage tones. PRS 2 Channel "H" amplifiers have a more modern tone and feature "Heyboer" transformers. The "H's" two 6L6 power tubes are designed to produce a fast, articulate amplifier suited for modern music where alternate tunings are a must. A combo version of the "H' is also available.
PRS's new PRS DB-2 speaker cabinet is designed to work well with both PRS 2 channel amps but is said to be practical for all musical applications. This deeper 2 x 12 closed back cabinet features plywood construction and is wrapped in PRS's black covering. Speakers are Celestion vintage 30s (8 Ohms).
