    Little monster!!!!!!

    When can you say that 25W is way more than you needed? When you get this amp! Just to make sure, I am no expert as my main instrument is the drums, but I have always enjoyed playing guitar and songwriting. This is without a doubt a high gain AMP, meaning is not for everyone or will not necessarily satisfy all your needs or styles as it is definitely more on the modern to heavy metal side of the sound equation. For me it was perfect because it was exactly what I was looking in terms of sound and projection and by far exceeded the volume that I needed. Incredible clean channel and the lead is a dream for the modern rockers. I am yet to put a pedal in front of it to make it sing into further dimensions. No integrated Reverb definitely will make you go for that effect pedal at least, but even its simplicity in terms of sound makes it even more focused on its raw power and sound quality which is something that I did admire on this amp when I heard what it could deliver and how the instruments were sounding. One piece of advice... try pinch harmonics in on this thing...Amazing!!!

    Sweetwater service... Simply the best!!!!!!!!! Thanks Mark!!!

    A Must Have

    Don't be fooled! This amp is much more than just another high gain amp. The clean channel is just as impressive as the gain channel. This is one versatile amp, a definite keeper! Don't let the size deter you! The Archon screams!!

    Great Amp

    I purchased this amp almost a year ago from Sweetwater. Let me start by saying that Sweetwaters customer service is second to none. Any time I have ever had an issue or a question, they go out of their way to help.

    Unfortunately, this is my second Archon 25. The first one that I received was incredibly noisy on the dirty channel, much more than it should have been. After talking with PRS directly, it was diagnosed as a tube issue. Sweetwater sent out a new one, no questions asked.

    After I received the new one, all seemed to be well. The clean channel is incredible for a high gain amp. It even takes pedals really well. The dirty channel is what these amps are known for and this little amp doesn't disappoint. You can go from an 80's rock tone all the way to modern metal and more. My only drawback at this point is that the amp still has a little bit more noise on the dirty channel than I would like. When compared to Mesa, Marshall or Orange, you would think that there is something wrong with the amp, but the noise is normal, according to PRS. Nothing a noise suppressor can't fix.

    Overall it's a great amp. PRS is a company not generally known for their high gain amps, but this guy changes all of that. Somehow they have managed to make a high gain amp that has a tone all it's own.

    Nice Amp

    Having several amps i am still always willing to try a new one. I bought this one because i like PRS products and love my Private Stock guitar. Overall i like this amp but if i could change something it would be to have an upgrade on materials like on their other amps. It does'nt look like your typical upscale PRS product, but it is a keeper!
