    PRS Archon Test

    Hey guys
    Here is a quick test I put together using my PRS Archon amp. Because I was curious to hear how the amp itself sounds in a full mix scenario, I opted not to use any pedals in front or in the loop.

    To record I went to my Two Notes Torpedo Live which acted as a loadbox so I could get the sound of the whole amp including the poweramp, and that has an impulse of Nolly's Zilla 2x12 Cab with Celestion Creamback H speakers. Guitar was my Jackson Custom Shop 6 with Bare Knuckle Juggernaut set tuned to Drop C.

    Sounds awesome. I had no idea PRS even made amps. Shows how wrong I was.

    I want to hear this with quality speakers. My brief experience with the archon makes me want to spend more time with one.

    Also, I assume this is dialed in to "the bulb tone". Any chance of a more at the gates style riff? Maybe something lower gain as well?

    These do seem to be sweet amps

    Edit: what wouls you compare the cleans to?
