PRS Archon 50 Head
PRS's ACLAIDED COMBO WITH CRAZY CLEANS AND FAT OVERDRIVE IN HEAD FORMAT!
In Greek, Archon roughly translates as "Ruler" and what a "Ruler" this amplifier from PRS is! In addition to the fantastic guitars from PRS, it has now been proven over and over that PRS builds at least such great amplifiers. This Archon is a little beast with a crazy clean channel and a fat lead channel. The clean channel offers excellent usable clean, from crystal clear to more crunchy. The lead channel continues here: from crunchy to metal high gain. Each channel has its own 3-band EQ and volume control. Each channel also has its own bright switch for more clarity in the sound. The channels together share a depth and presence control. Furthermore, both channels have their own master volume. To make the amplifier as practical as possible, there is an effects loop and you can switch the power from 50 to 25 watts. In the 25-watt mode, the amp will overdrive relatively more at a lower volume, for a sound that leans a little more towards vintage amps.
