Compact Tube Combo with Aggression

If you like the way a smaller tube amplifier breaks up when it's pushed hard, you'll love the 50-watt PRS Archon guitar combo amplifier. The 50-watt Archon gives you all of the sonic fury of the 100-watt version, delivering clear, sparkling cleans and aggressive, overdriven bite. When pushed hard, the 50-watt Archon's clean channel produces a fantastic, driven clean tone. The 50-watt Archon's lead channel will shatter the windows and shake the walls with mountains of full, lush distortion. Whether you're chiming or chugging, the PRS Archon 50-watt tube amp delivers the goods!

PRS Archon 50-watt Tube Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Aggressive modern tone with a classic playing response
  • Two channels of sonic mayhem
  • Professional features and high-class tone
Aggressive modern tone with a classic playing response

Following in the success of the 100-watt Archon, this 50-watt version is designed to give you the same modern tone but with the playing feel of a lower-powered amp. You'll both hear and feel the Archon breathe and loosen up a bit when you really dig into your guitar. And when you switch to 25-watt mode, you can get those same cranked-amp tones at lower volumes. Basically, this is the Archon you want if you're after high-gain tone with the responsive feel of a lower-wattage amplifier.

Two channels of sonic mayhem

The amp gurus at PRS decided it was time for an amp that excels at the heavier side of music. From drop-tuned chugging to over-the-top shred solos, the 50-watt 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. The clean channel goes from warm jazz tones to pristine clean. Guitarists at Sweetwater agree that amps rarely encompass both sides of the spectrum this well. And if you cut the power down to 25 watts, you get the same killer tone at volumes more appropriate for smaller venues or recording.

Professional features and high-class tone

It rocks on its own, but the PRS Archon 50-watt combo amplifier is easy to integrate into virtually any guitar rig, too. You've got a switchable 4/8/16-ohm speaker output, so you can easily connect whatever type of speaker cabinet you prefer. And just like every PRS amp, the Archon has easy-access bias points on the back panel for easier tube maintenance.

PRS Archon 50-watt Tube Combo Amplifier Features:
  • Modern 2-channel metal amplifier with features designed for the professional gigging guitarist
  • All-tube design with incredibly wide tonal range, from amazing cleans to roaring distortion
  • Master volume for each channel really lets you fine-tune your tonal combinations
  • Amazingly responsive and dynamic, with no loss of high frequencies when you turn down your guitar's volume
  • Switchable 50-watt/25-watt operation lets you achieve cranked-amp tone at lower volume levels
  • Vibrant, punchy tone from a 12" Celestion G12-75T speaker
  • 12AX7 preamp tubes and 6L6 power tubes
Rule the stage with the PRS Archon 50-watt combo amp!

Best High Gain Amp Out There

This is a great amp. The clean channel is CLEAN and won't distort at all. I wish it had reverb but it doesn't. The gain channel is HIGH GAIN. High enough for metal IMO. Both channels sound fantastic. You can use 6l6 or el34 tubes. I too swapped out the original speaker. I use a G12k-100, which has more bass. In terms of build quality these amps are head over heals above any Marshall combo on the market. Point to point wired. Tubes and switches mounted to the chassis. Quality components throughout. My only criticism is the effects loop which is too noisy to use. Other than that, I am very happy.

Stellar Amp!

I picked up an Archon 50 combo a few months ago and have played about 7 live shows with it so far. The clean channel is fabulous. Stays super clean if you want it to, and has a beautiful expressive treble response, as well as taking pedals extremely well. The size of the cabinet is perfect. It's a little wider than the Rectoverb 25 combo I had before, which sounded boxy to me. The Archon 50 combo sounds very full to me, not boxy at all, but it's still small enough and light enough to easily fit on a tight stage. This amp has 6L6 tubes, and the gain channel is cool, but I find that I am mainly using pedals through the clean channel right now. Effects loop is slightly noisy but does not suck tone at all. Only thing negative I have to say about the amp is that I did not bond with the stock G12-75T speaker at all. After trying a few options, I ended up installing a Cannabis Rex, which is a really good fit for this amp, at least for me. All in all, I am a big fan of the Archon 50 combo!
