PRS Blistertone Amp

Through the PRS Custom Amp Designs Shop, Paul Smith and Doug Sewell have resurrected one of Doug’s most successful Sewell amps—the Blistertone 50. This amp is the evolution of Sewell’s original design, released nearly a decade ago. The new Blistertone 50 is a versatile, modern single channel amp with the ability to create clean to strong overdrive tones using your guitar’s volume control. The cleans reveal shimmer and sparkle reminiscent of higher wattage British amps. The overdrive tones are strong with carefully tailored, large lows that remain tight when pushed. The master volume is specially designed for overall volume, punch, and clarity at lower settings. The tone stack (tone control circuitry) is unique to the Blistertone and allows a wide range of modern tone tweaking. Options include either reverb or an effects loop.
