Kerry.D's review"It IS, indeed, Super!"

PRS 50W Super Dallas Head
50W, EL34-based power stage, simple tone controls, and a truly useable master volume. This isn't your bedroom-volume noodler's amp...it's made to be unleashed and played at bar-gig volumes +. Build quality is pro-grade and though I don't have one of the ornate paisley or figured wood head cabinets, it's still beautiful.

UTILIZATION

Tone controls all work throughout their operating range with enough flexibility to tune to any cabinet and guitar combination.

SOUNDS

The delivery of Doug Sewell's unique design is in the tonal flexibility and reliable production of this tone night after night. It's a 50W, single channel amp so you have to expect to use it like one...dime the master, turn up the volume to your desired lead volume, turn down the guitar volume for crunch and clean. It's beautifully old school. With a Twin-like front end and EL34 power stage, it's not like most amps out there. Cleans are stunningly good. Crunch relies on your pickups to provide the drive or your pedalboard. Roll the guitar volume to 10 and it just growls! Matched with the right cab (PRS pine 2x12 for me) and it's magic. With the pedalboard up front, it takes Klon-like ODs perfectly and retains the clarity and punch regardless of how much gain you give it. Listen to Grissom and Haynes...they play these and yield different results, as do I.

OVERALL OPINION

Like so many review sites, 90%+ of the reviews are from casual music store lurkers that have never owned the device they're reviewing...much less used it in critical situations. In this case, I have. The PRS Super Dallas is my #1 amp and have recorded and gigged it solidly for the past 2 years. Despite the "it's too pretty and overpriced" flames, this amp delivers 10x over expectations. This is one of the most "sleeper" amps out there.

iamqman's review"Expersive single channel amp!"

PRS 50W Super Dallas Head
I have never been a fan of the PRS guitars and so I was a little hesitant to hear one of their amps but to my surprise this amp sounded very good. It has a extremely transparent clean tone that is one of the best cleans I have ever heard. Then you take it up the volume and you get a pretty good moderately distorted tube driven tone. This amp is not high gain and is designed for the clean tones.

SOUNDS

This amp sounds pretty good and will sound best with a single coil guitar in my opinion. It is very chimy and sparkly type clean tone. Not really a Fender tone but a different character all together. It takes pedals real well and provides a nice warm shiny tone.

OVERALL OPINION

This amp excels at the Texas blues type tones. Not a high gain amp at all but with the right pedal can get a good heavy distortion tone. That is where my complimenting stops.

This amp is nice but extremely overpriced.I cannot understand for one second how PRS can think that this amp has anything more than a Fender amp of the same features. Then again you can buy a Two Rock amp with about the same features for even more than this. PRS jacks their prices up way too far. This amp come in new at around $2600. For a single channel clean amp this is a bit ridiculous. This is basically the reason I have steered very clear of his guitars. They are very overpriced and this amp is the same way.
