    Product Description

    The PRS Archon is a modern classic. Greek for “ruler” or “lord,” the mighty Archon is a commanding 2-channel amp revered for its monstrous high-gain tones, sparkling cleans and engulfing headroom. This 50-watt Archon head is perfectly-suited for small to large-sized venues, which can be seamlessly paired with the matching PRS Archon 1x12" or 2x12" cabs to deliver inspiring guitar sounds rich in harmonic content.

    Offering a remarkably responsive feel with incredible note separation, the Archon is a real player's amplifier — whether you’re playing lush arpeggios on the clean channel or chugging on the lead!

    Key Features

    • Five Gain Stages — Several stages before the master volume means that the Archon’s lead channel is voiced to cover everything from classic rock to metal with full, addictive distortion.
    • Spellbinding Clean Channel — Provides warm yet vibrant tones that retain clarity even at high volumes. There is ample headroom too, creating an excellent platform for pedals!
    • 6CA7 Power Tubes — Fall between EL34 and 6L6 tubes, offering the best of both worlds. 6CA7’s are full and articulate with smooth high-end and tight low-end. They chug, distort and get heavy without over-saturating.
    • Intuitive Tone-Shaping — Each channel features volume, treble, middle, bass and master volume controls as well as a bright switch to sweeten the highs.
    • Global Presence & Depth Controls — Work to modify the feedback network of the amp to unleash the potential of the top-end and low-end respectively.
    • Tube-Driven Effects Loop — Allows you to seamlessly integrate your favourite time-based and modulation stompboxes.
    • 1-Button Footswitch — Included switch lets you easily change channels on-the-fly.
