I find it odd that they've brought out such vintage orientated amps given that most of the people who use their guitars seem to be rock and metal players.

The cabs look awesome but I wish there was an MSRP or something (in before 3000 US DOLLARS) clips would be nice too.

i dunno, they have a lot of artists who play more classic rock styles as well. and blues, jazz, country and everything else under the sun. sure you hear more about linkin park and alterbridge using their guitar, but so do the stone roses and jethro tull for example.

but the real kicker is probably the fact that Mr. Smith likes that kind of amp best. i think he plays more that kind of style with his band. so if thats what he wants, thats what he is going to start making first.

that said, as a lot of the big name artists that use their guitars are more into modern stuff, i would assume eventually PRS would make amps for that kind of style. wont sell as well though, because they would have to compete with companies like splawn or framus or whatever who already make hi-end amps catering to that kind of music.

Well, I don't have anything against PRS, but some quick observations.

Yes, PRS I think got on the map more from the likes of Carlos Santana vs. metal players today.

If they are made as well as their guitars I'm sure they will be fine.

*I personally don't care for the paisley print tolex or whatever that is.

*The descriptions of the 3 amps are very similar, I don't see a lot descriptive information on the web site (ie I expected more on the quality of materials, cabinet wood, speakers, tubes mnfc used, transformers used etc.)

*I don't see a power switch?

*Are they PCB mass market or hand-wired niche?

*No clips is a shame.

I guess I'm not as impressed as I thought I would be when I first heard the news a month or so ago.

*I haven't had my coffee yet and I didn't listen to the interview with Derek.

PRS has made amps in the past, they do look interesting though, but I'd expect them to be ridiculously expensive, as their guitars are

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

They look really promising, I'm waiting for some clips. They'll probably be amazing, but also amazingly expensive, like everything PRS makes. But hey, they can proudly do so if they keep up to the expectations.

It's better than Dean's halfstack furthering of their milking Dime's name.

Anyway, if Smith holds these to the same standards as the guitars, we're in for a treat that may unsettle me from an Orange as my next amp. If not, at least the guitars still kick epic ass

I love Derek Truck's slide tone in that video. Then again, Derek Trucks can make just about anything sound good...

They are PRS amps made by a amp company,Sewell Amps... They make some high quality stuff, or so I've heard - that being the case, you are paying for a more boutique amp then overpriced corksniffer material that PRS usually provides.

It looks promising but I'm sure they're gonna be 1500-2500 bucks not worth it, I'll go buy a plexi or splawn or just about any other vintage amp for that much


thats just my personal opinion
