PRS Archon Amp Range Expands!

No Comments PRS Guitars

The Archon amp has been really well received by the press and players since its launch at the end of last year. Its combination of staggering hi-gain tone, full cleans AND a lovely, chunky, responsive overdrive has won it a lot of fans.

So we’re really excited about the arrival of the new Archon 50 head and combo for those players who want the original’s amazing tone in a more compact, lower wattage package. With 50 watts – switchable to 25 via the amp’s back panel – the Archon 50 breaks up at a lower volume, resulting in a more classically driven tone than its predecessor.

The added option of 6L6 or EL34 power tubes allows players to further personalise the tone and feel of the Archon 50. 6L6 tubes offer plenty of versatility and warmer, more balanced tone across the full range of frequencies. They will also push with less saturation for a bit of a sweeter, smoother tone. EL34 tubes offer focused, tight, punchy gain – they run a little hotter, distort earlier, and deliver a wider range of overdriven, crunch tones that are great for rock distortion.

The 1×12″ Archon 50 combo gets a classic Celestion G12-75T speaker, making it a killer package for rehearsals, in the studio or smaller gigs (on its own) or even bigger venues with an extension cab. The two-channel amp is really set to make waves when it arrives in Europe in October – in the meantime there’s loads of further information in terms of specifications and video content on the amp here!

Jakko Jakszyk’s New ‘King Crimson’ PRS P24

No Comments Uncategorized

This autumn, progressive rock masters King Crimson return to the live stage with a line-up that includes UK guitar star Jakko Jakszyk assuming lead singer/guitar duties alongside Robert Fripp (and bass player Tony Levin, drummers Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Bill Rieflin and saxophonist Mel Collins).

And the tour (which starts on September 9) will see Jakko sporting a rather special PRS P24 model. A fan of the super versatile humbucker+piezo equipped P24, Jakko asked for his KC P24 to be painted with the artwork from Crimson’s 1969 classic ‘In The Court Of The Crimson King’ album – instantly recognisable as one of the most powerful album covers ever.

The result is absolutely stunning, as you’ll see here! We grabbed a very quick shoot with Jakko when he collected the guitar from PRS Guitars Europe HQ in August – check out the link below to see and hear the guitar in action and learn why he loves the versatility of the P24′s myriad tones..

New PRS Custom 24 and Custom 22 Video!

No Comments PRS Guitars

There’s currently lots of excitement about the re-introduction of the classic PRS Custom 22 for 2013, and the fact that the 22 and the Custom 24 are now available with a choice of pickups! Yes indeed, you can now specify either with the rocking combination of HFS and Vintage Bass humbuckers, or the sweet classic stylings of the 57/08 units.

The pickup choice means the number of spec variations now possible with the CU22 and 24 are enormous. With your choice of colour, neck profile and hardware options, there are thousands of combinations, allowing you to select your ultimate guitar!

We recently produced the demo video above at Headline Studios to illustrate the differences between the tonal characteristics of the two pickup options – so sit back and enjoy as Kieran takes you through them…
