PRS Expands Archon Amplifier Family with Archon 25 Combo

10/14/2014

The Archon 25 brings the ‘king’ of PRS high-gain amplification to the world of small, low wattage tube amps. The Archon’s lush distortion and singing clean channel tones are all here in a 25 watt package (switchable to 13 watts via the back panel). The Archon 25’s wattage makes the amp easier to push to optimum performance – tube amps sound best when pushed a little – and it gets there at a lower volume, which is a huge benefit not only at home, but also in the studio and on the stage. Recording with an amp at lower volumes allows for a cleaner signal and a truer tone, and keep the soundman happy by not blowing out the other members of the band.

Dustie Waring Limited Edition ‘Floyd’ Custom 24

Dustie Waring Limited Edition

The progressive metal band, Between the Buried and Me has a sound that is heavy yet melodic, lush but menacing - a tone that rhythm guitarist Dustie Waring achieves with PRS guitars and amplifiers. Since 2008, Waring has traditionally used a PRS Custom 24 outfitted with Floyd Rose tremolo system both on tour and in the studio. Recently, Waring and PRS Guitars got together to create a limited edition signature model that would look and sound even more vicious than Dustie’s current PRS guitar.

Statement Regarding the Passing of Brian Farmer

08/25/2014

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dear friend, Brian Farmer.  Long time guitar tech and friend to Warren Haynes, Brian was extremely devoted to his work and has followed and supported Warren through the various bands he’s played with over the decades including the Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule, the Dead and Phil Lesh & Friends.

Brian will be missed by many here at PRS Guitars and his friends and colleagues in the music industry.  He personally touched the lives of so many folks he worked with. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and all of his industry peers that had the good fortune and pleasure of knowing and working with Brian.
