• PRS introduces new amp line

    From Premier Guitar

    Stevensville, MD (August 18, 2011) -- PRS Guitars is proud to officially announce the PRS SE amplifier line. Modeled after the acclaimed PRS SE line of guitars, this new amp line continues the concept of providing affordable musical instruments and equipment without sacrificing tone, usability, or quality. The lineup, scheduled to start shipping in the fall of 2011, includes the PRS SE 20 featuring 6V6 tubes, PRS SE 30 featuring 5881s, and PRS SE 50 featuring EL34s–all of which are offered as closed back 1x12 combos or as heads. A PRS SE 2x12 cabinet is available as well. All the amps in this family feature two channels with separate EQ, an effects loop, and reverb (all newer features for PRS –introduced on the 2 Channel “H” and “C”). Each amp also boasts custom wound transformers, 0.090 aluminum chassis, high-end “on-on-on” selector switches, only the best NNS tubes, custom-voiced speakers, custom knobs, and more.

    PRS Amp Designer Doug Sewell spearheaded this project from start to finish. Working with the PRS amp team, Doug designed and built a hand-wired prototype with high-end components. This was used as the tonal and functional quality baseline for this project. The team then worked with expert consultants to develop the final family of SE amps. “I cannot effectively describe the sense of teamwork, passion, and hard work associated with this endeavor, but I feel it is very evident in the final product…I personally cannot wait until I can purchase my own, or more realistically, one of each!” said Sewell.

    PRS SE 20
    Powered by a pair of 6V6 tubes, the PRS SE 20 is designed to produce a wide variety of classic tones. According to PRS, the clean channel delivers an array of tones from crystalline clean to light overdrive crunch, and the lead channel provides warm distortion and plenty of overdrive.

    PRS SE 30
    The PRS SE 30 is designed to be a versatile amp with a great combination of modern and vintage tones. According to PRS, the clean channel can dial in pristine cleans to moderate crunch all with lots of chime and clarity. The lead channel offers the same level of clarity with harmonic richness and a lively, organic, responsive tone. The PRS SE 30 is an ideal match for a wide variety of guitar and musical styles.

According to PRS, the clean channel has lots of punch and tons of tonal character. When driven to the extreme, the dirty channel produces punchy, tightly focused distortion that is perfect for heavy metal, but it can also be tamed to please blues, fusion, and roots rock guitarists.

      Need some half decent demos. Street prices are close to a grand for the 20w and 30w combos.
