    Hey guys
    Here is a quick test I put together using my PRS Archon amp. Because I was curious to hear how the amp itself sounds in a full mix scenario, I opted not to use any pedals in front or in the loop.

    To record I went to my Two Notes Torpedo Live which acted as a loadbox so I could get the sound of the whole amp including the poweramp, and that has an impulse of Nolly's Zilla 2x12 Cab with Celestion Creamback H speakers. Guitar was my Jackson Custom Shop 6 with Bare Knuckle Juggernaut set tuned to Drop C.

    Damn. I think this is one of my favorite tones that you've ever put out, and that's saying something!

    I am under the impression that the Archon would be a CRUSHING amp for Death Metal. Need to try one.

    Thanks guys, glad you dig the sound! I really find that the amp comes to life with my Bulb OD in front, but it does still sound fantastic without!

    Sounds great Misha! Looking forward to the inevitable (right?!) demo with the OD in front. The amp sounds great already but must be beastly with an OD in front!
