PRS Archon 25
To say that the PRS Archon is "versatile" seems like such an understatement. The Archon 25 has quickly become one of our very favorite amps here at the shop. Not many amplifier manufactures have created high-gain amps (tons of great gain!) with a decent clean channel. We think this amp has some of the best cleans we've heard. Paul Reed Smith hit this one out of the park!
Low Wattage Hero
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 will give you a cleaner signal and a truer tone, and on the stage, the soundman will thank you for not blowing out the other members of the band.
The Archon 25 features Volume, Treble, Middle, and Bass controls for each channel. There is also a Master Volume control for each channel and global Depth and Presence for added control. The Archon’s 6L6/EL34 tube option is replaced here with 5881’s, which offer extended high end while maintaining the Archon’s signature crunch.
Bottom line, the Archon 25 keeps all the tone and flexibility of the Archon family intact, is a little more forgiving than its 100 and 50 watt big brothers, and won’t break your back every time you load in for a gig.
