The PRS Archon amplifier has the impact and flexibility suited for today's heavy music. Greek for "ruler" or "lord," the PRS Archon is a commanding and versatile 2-channel amp with aggressive overdriven tones and sparkling cleans with plenty of headroom. The Archon's lead channel was designed with five gain stages before the master volume, delivering full, lush distortion. The clean channel provides ample headroom with rich clear tones that retain clarity even at high volume and are an excellent platform for pedals. The Archon has remarkably responsive tone with incredible note separation, whether you're playing on the clean channel or chugging on the lead.
Utilizing a ˜no flash or trash' approach, the Archon's control layout features volume and tone controls for each channel, a global depth control to add a thunderous low end, and a presence control to effect the high-end chime. A half-power switch allows players to choose either 100 or 50 watts of output adding to the Archon's extreme flexibility.

Comments about PRS Archon 100W Tube Guitar Head:
This amp is a BEAST! PRS has some secret methods on how they make their products and it works every time!! The amp is a bit heavy for a smaller head, but the tone that oozes out of this thing makes everything worth that this amp offers! The clean channel surpasses Fender cleans in my opinion, very clear and defined channel to hear every note you play, and the chords sound chimey and beautiful! And then there's the Overdrive/Distortion channel....and all I have to say is WOW! Takes a sec to dial in your right tone, but once you hit that sweet spot, I've never heard a better tight distortion channel in my life and I've played marshalls, evh, Mesa Boogie, Blackstar, etc. and I've also used distortion or overdrive pedals into fender amps. This Archon kills! Heavy crunch or dial the drive knob back and get nice creamy 70s/80s overdrive! It takes pedals really really well too! Unfortunately the only down side to this amp is there is no reverb, but for someone like me that I don't mind using reverb pedals....this amp is the winner for me, might even buy myself the combo version for home!!!
