(STEVENSVILLE, MD) September 29, 2009–Described as an English sound with an American twist, PRS Guitars’ new amp, the PRS 30, is the first 30-watt cathode biased amp in a series of lower wattage amps that started with the Sweet 16 model earlier this year. The PRS 30 model features a quartet of EL84 tubes with a control layout similar to the Dallas model PRS amp.
PRS 30 amps are handmade in Stevensville, Maryland, and will be available in head and combo versions. Other features include reverb and a special master volume that’s dialed out of the circuit as the amp’s volume is at max setting. PRS 30 amps will be available this winter at authorized PRS Signature Dealers and PRS Amp dealers nationwide.
PRS Amp Business Unit Manager Michael Clark said, “The PRS 30 excels at vintage EL84 tones while offering modern versatility.”
