[NAMM] Paul Reed Smith’s Archon amp head
Paul Reed Smith will go to the Winter NAMM Show 2014 with guitars, but also with amps, including the new Archon high gain amplifier head.
Designed for agressive overdrive and hard rock sound lovers, as well as clean sound fans, the PRS Archon is a two-channel guitar amplifier head providing 100W of power and equipped with a power attenuator switch that divides the power by two (50W). Inside the amp, Paul Reed Smith installed six 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC at the power stage.
The Lead channel features no less that five gain stages before hitting the master volume, while the clean channel will kindly host your effect stompboxes.
Each channel features its own volume, tone and three-band EQ controls, but they share a Depth knob for the low-end and a Presence control for the high frequencies. A footswitch is also included for the effect loop bypass and channel change.
The amp bias can be adjusted and you can choose between 4, 8 or 16 Ohm cabinets to accompany the amp.
The default finish of the amp is a black rolex with a Charcoal Burst Maple fascia, but other finishes are available. Visit www.prsguitars.com for full details about the Archon.
