Made in Maryland


The goal of the MDT amplifier was to create an instrument that could capture multiple iconic amp tones in one model. Using the Original Sewell as a platform, this mod takes British and high-design boutique American styles and marries them to a unique tweed style tone stack. The result is an amp that produces singing, fat, orchestral tones.

Don’t be fooled by the MDT’s minimalistic approach to controls and options, this amp’s tones are both complex and flexible.  The gain of the amp has been carefully adjusted to draw out the notes from your fingers, but stays very musical and avoids extra noise, compression, and buzz.  It is the latest refinement of Paul and Doug's quest for tone and the ultimate evolution of the amp that got Doug Sewell the gig at PRS.
