    Product Description

    A very limited edition PRS Archon 25 amp in a unique purple tolex covering and Caine grille cloth. 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.

    The best amp I have owned
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    If you want a high gain combo, this is the one to buy. These are point to point wired. You can use el34's or 6l6's. I swapped out the original speaker for a g12k-100, but that's it. The clean channel is pristine. I almost wish it would break up a little but it doesn't. The gain channel is like a Marshall. Plenty of gain on tap. I use a noise gate at high volume but that's it. The tone is all there. My only complaint is the effects loop. I'd really like that to work, since there is no reverb. But it's noisy. Running the chords and the pedal as far away from the amp as possible seems to help. But it's a pain to deal with, so I run all the pedal out front.

    Archon Means "Ruler"
    What is your opinion of this product?
    After some frustrations with Marshall JVM and Mesa Rectoverb, I searched for a small-format high-gain amp for recording and small venues. PRS Archon has a great reputation as a high-gain amp yet also for it's pristine clean channel. With ample headroom to spare, the clean channel is indeed worth the price of admission. The high gain saturation from the lead channel is ferocious, yet articulate. Definitely a modern metal tone but capable of "plexi" crunch with the work of the volume knob on the guitar. No independent boost but even if you get one, an OD would not be necessary. Each channel has an independent master volume, bright switch and three bands of (useful) eq. Both channels share a presence and resonance setting. The Celeston G12-T75 is a good match overall for the big sound, with clean headroom and breakup not appearing to be an issue. I intend to keep using it, and also had good results with an extension cab using Eminence Legend 1216.
