Sweet 16

PRS’s Sweet 16 amp couples 16 watts of cathode-biased 6V6 output tube power and includes reverb, a full TMB tone stack, and PRS’s transparent master volume circuit. The tones can run from sparkly cleans with single coils to humbucking crunch. At the appropriate volume set, a full range of crunching cleans are accessible using just the guitar's volume knob. The Sweet 16 is handmade in Stevensville, Maryland utilizing thick pc boards for consistency. All pots, jacks, power tube sockets and switches are chassis mounted and shielded wire is used where critical.
