The PRS 2 Channel Custom amplifier platform has received great accolades since its introduction in 2011. From time to time, however, PRS has been asked for something just a little smaller. Keeping all the versatility of the 2 Channel Custom 50, this 20-watt version limited edition amp is easier to transport and use in smaller clubs, rehearsal spaces, and the living room.
But, it is not only the lighter weight and the smaller box that defines this amp. For some, wattage equals tone and sometimes that tone is all about lower wattage tube amps. With lower wattage, you can crank up the amp and it saturates and breaks up earlier, delivering a tone that cannot be found in larger-platform amps. This is where the PRS 2 CH Custom 20 shines. Using two 5881 power tubes coupled with a Heyboer output transformer to crank out a muscular 20 watts, this amp strides from spanking clean tones to slightly overdriven rhythm tones on the clean channel, then sprints from crunchy to blistering overdrives on the lead channel without breaking a sweat.
Outfitted with the channel boost, reverb and effects loop found on all of the 2 Channel Custom amps and packed into a comfortable-sized cabinet equipped with a trusted Celestion G12H-30, the PRS 2 CH Custom 20 is the perfect sidekick for the player looking for a solid, well-rounded, not-kidding-around amplifier that is easy to transport and delivers the sonic goods. Only 20 of these amps will be made for this limited run.

Comments about PRS 2 Channel Custom 20 Combo LTD Guitar Combo Amp:
The clean channel melts your ears! Truly the best amp I'll ever own until I have 5000+ on hand to upgrade to an even greater amp. The lead tone is a mix of British and American rock tones. Comes with a footswitch to easily switch from clean to lead. Footswitch also switches the reverb on/off. Footswitch also has a boost.
You can dial the amount of boost for EACH channel on the back of the amp. Then simply use the boost whenever you want with the footswitch. The Presence/Depth control will either give you more high end or bottom end.
If you're looking for John Mayer/Grateful Dead tones look no further.
