Product Description

PRS has created a supremely versatile, powerful amp designed for the modern player. The Archon provides incredible high-gain tone as well as a beautiful clean channel not normally found in amps with this much crunch. Four 6L6 tubes, 100-watts of power switchable to 50-watts, and robust PC boards with extensive handwired construction make this an amp deserving of the Paul Reed Smith name.

High-Gain Heavyweight
Greek for ‘ruler’ or ‘lord,’ the PRS Archon is a commanding and versatile 2-channel amp with aggressive overdriven tones and sparkling cleans with plenty of headroom. The Archon’s lead channel was designed with five gain stages before the master volume, delivering full, lush distortion. The clean channel provides ample headroom with rich clear tones that retain clarity even at high volume and are an excellent platform for pedals. The Archon has remarkably responsive tone with incredible note separation.

Utilizing a ‘no flash or trash’ approach, the Archon’s control layout features volume and tone controls for each channel, a global depth control to add a thunderous low end, and a presence control to effect the high end chime. A half-power switch allows players to choose either 100 or 50 watts of output adding to the Archon’s extreme flexibility.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
Where do I begin? This amp is great!!! Buy it and you will hear it for yourself. The drive channel: Off the wall high gain wonderland. I play Metal and have my gain set and around 11 o'clock and it is perfect. Power chords are rich and huge. Lead licks on G,B and E strings are clear and stand out of the pack. Use an EQ or Gain boost pedal in the loop and Solos cut through everything. The channel also responds well to volume pedal and knob roll offs nicely, unlike other overly compressed amp in the same range. Even with the gain pushed to max, the amp is relatively quiet (feedback issues) unless you're standing 5-10ft. away from, but by then you'll probably be more worried about your melting face. I use an ISP Decimator II in through the loop and it works perfectly. The clean channel: This channel is great. Few can top it (AC30 & Deluxe)but it really depends on what you're looking for. It works perfectly for me with my Metal band. Find it, try it, buy it. No need to try though.
