Inside a PRS Amp: The Sweet 16

Filed Under Amplifiers / Core Amplifiers

A lot of hard work and quality control testing goes into our amps here at PRS.  Hand wiring each component is a big part of what we do.

After each amp is wired and assembled we put signal through the amp for hours to make sure it holds up.  We don’t want our amps to ever fail you on stage, we want them to bring your tone to an all new level.

Pictured above is the inside of our all-tube PRS Sweet 16 Amp, you can learn more about this amp, HERE.

Joey Santiago On His SE Amps

“I am using the SE 50 on stage. It has a great punky edge, but it’s also really warm. What really sets it apart is its definition. It’s versatile. I love its clean sounds as well…It has a sparkly high end that I can’t get with a Marshall.”

– Joey Santiago, Pixies

David Grissom On His PRS Anniversary Amp

“The PRS Anniversary amplifier fills the “35 watt plexi” slot in my amp setup. It has the punch and midrange of a great older Marshall at a slightly lower and more practical volume than a plexi 50. I love that the 2 channels are bridged internally so I don’t have to jump them with a cable. Blending the 2 channels gives me a wide array of vintage British tone with lots of low end punch. Additionally, it is a new hand built amp, so I don’t have to worry about a 40 year old transformer or filter cap failing at a gig or session. Wonderful, pure, vintage inspired tones…....I love this amp!”

“I’m touring the world with Steve Vai this year.  I need versatile, incredible sounding amps with flawless reliability for this gig.  I chose PRS’s 2-Channel H amps.  Their sound, dual master volumes, reverb and loop give me everything I need.” - Dave Weiner
