Tone capture of the commanding PRS Archon 100. Getting its name from the ancient Greek word for lord or ruler, and it more than lives up to its lofty title! Thanks to its unique preamp design, which utilizes five cascading gain stages and six 12AX7 preamp tubes, the Archon's lead channel gives you a lush and creamy distortion unlike any amplifier we've had the pleasure of carrying at Sweetwater. And when you want to play clean, you'll discover a rich and flattering clean channel onboard that offers all of the headroom you or your pedalboard could ask for.
The Archon is a 100-watt behemoth that offers killer metal tones. From drop-tuned chugging to over-the-top shred solos, the Archon delivers the heavy sounds you need with extreme clarity. Every note of every chord is clear and defined, no matter how heavy your distortion. On the other side, many of today's top rock players have commented that this is one of the cleanest amps they have ever played. The clean channel goes from warm jazz tones to pristine clean. Rarely has an amp been able to encompass both sides of the spectrum this well. And if you cut the power down to 50 watts, you get the same killer tone at volumes more appropriate for smaller venues or recording.
This preset is best used with a power amp (or the FX Loop of an amp) and a cabinet. If you don't intend to use a cabinet please turn on cab sim and either select one of the stock cab sims or use one of the included matched cabinet IRs. This tone capture comes with a Paul Reed Smith 2x12 Stealth IR and a Paul Reed Smith Archon 2x12 IR with two more tube variations for each!
