The Sweet 16, PRS Guitars new 16 watt amp, is now on retail shelves.
All amps are hand wired in Stevensville, Maryland using hybrid circuitry techniques.
The Sweet 16 uses hand assembled circuit boards. Shielded cable is used for critical signal paths, and pots, switches, jacks, and power tube sockets are chassis mounted and connected via flying leads. Power sections employ JJs 6V6 power tubes, which have proven to be very rugged and reliable, according to PRS.
They are cathode-biased to near class A, in a push-pull configuration. This is designed to assist the chime, bloom, and rich harmonics that the amp can produce at all volumes. The four preamp tubes include two NOS Philips 12AT7s, a JJs ECC83S, and a Tung Sol Reissue 12AX7s in locations to "maximize both clean and open-sounding lower volume settings to thick crunchiness at higher volumes."
