OVERVIEW

A 50W head that's made to rock.

The Archon 50 50W guitar head continues Archon's promise of delivering full, lush gain while offering a clean channel that players of all genres will appreciate. 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 player sto further personalize 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.

    Comments about PRS Archon 50W Guitar Tube Head:

    This amp head is absolutely fantastic. It will sound great in literally any context/style. Incredibly responsive, and dynamic, as well as having a clean channel that sounds like warm crystals, and a dirty channel that has more gain than anyone would ever need. When the power amp is pushed and the gain is backed down, it is very reminiscent of a plexi with just a hint of modern tightness. Push the gain up a little more, and before you know it, you are playing Killswitch, Periphery, and In Flames. What a fantastic amp. Buy it
