PRS 2 channel "C" AMP - Buyer Beware


Siestalady

Recommended Posts

Having been a huge fan of all things PRS, including my custom guitar, I can't believe how bad this amp is - the child of PRS and Doug Sewell. After waiting forever to receive it with all sorts of broken promises, the $1800 amp died after the first 60 days. This amp runs extremely hot and I thought it didn't seem right. After I spent $90 to mail it back and get fixed, now only 1 side runs hot but after a few weeks the foot pedal went. Now I have to carry a 35 year old Laney back-up. Still waiting for a response from PRS on this latest break down. Stay away from this product until they figure out where they went wrong.

That's too bad!

 

It's still under warranty, right?

Do you mean, one EL34 output-tube runs hot, one channel runs hot, or... what?

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

Lemme guess: made overseas?

 

"Handmade in Stevensville, Maryland..."

 

Evidently, the "C" in "PRS 2-Channel C Amp" stands for a "Cinemag"-brand output-transformer running into a duet of EL34's, while a nearly identical model, the PRS 2-Channel H Amp, has a Heyboer O/T harnessed to a pair of 6L6's.
