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 combo is perfectly-suited for small to medium-sized venues, with its compact “grab and go” design making it easy to take to gigs, rehearsals and the studio.

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.
  • Celestion V-Type Speaker — Projects full, extended lows and sweet mid-range.
  • 1-Button Footswitch — Included switch lets you easily change channels on-the-fly.
