PRS is getting ready to unveil a pretty game changing metal based amplifier for themselves :cool:

Is it actually metal? Whose using it? Well Mark Tremonti, Emil Werstler, Dustie Waring and Clint Lowery have been running it live for a while to name a few ;)

Tremonti used it as his main amp for rythem and leads on the last European run and was more than happy - he usually runs several amps. Emil uses a Bogner Shiva and Mesa Rectifier blended live - he will be replacing them both with one of these. Dustie went from using straight Fractal to using this for a majority of his amplier sounds.

I think its safe to say it's real... and it's mean!

Out there, somewhere
I am still majorly irritated that I can't use PRS amps at my place due to EMF interference... the modified 2 channel H head I had from TGS.ca was an absolute tone monster but I couldn't tame the EMF hum :(

It was fine everywhere else, but I do 90% of my playing at home so I'm sort of screwed :lol:

Why would PRS tease us like that? Unveil an amp like that just for themselves? :fawk::fawk::cool:

Sorry I just couldn't resist! Great news and I would be very interested in hearing them. PRS is making some incredible guitars but they always seemed to me like a niche market brand. The last few years however they have really spread their awesomeness in more areas and price ranges!

Damn, if Emil's replacing his beloved Shiva and Dual Rectifier with this, I know it has to be the shit. Can't wait for more info!

Really nice seeing a company grow, for some reason PRS seems like they've been around almost as Gibson and Fender, probably due to the way their guitars look, they have a very vintage look to them. But they've only been around in mass production since the mid 80's. Pretty cool seeing them start to roll out and expand with new stuff.

I have a friend in a local band who is endorsed by them. He attended the PRS experience this past summer and got to jam one of these. Now this guy is a tone-fanatic. He and his co-guitarist have always used the highest end equipment in this scene (bogners and EVHs, all rackmounted shit, etc) and not to mention he ALWAYS has great tone. He would NOT stop talking about this head. He said it was not to be believed. I bet its going to rule.

Please let there be an SE version, please let there be an SE, version, please let there be an SE version...

.... if its 3ch this is gonna be good. the cleans and mid gain tones have always been killer on PRS amps, and having a matching metal channel would be great :D
