One Amp to Rule Them All?

The PRS Two Channel Custom 50W tube amplifier head was designed to be a modern guitarist's Swiss Army knife of tone. Two channels pack more variety than you may expect, covering everything from expansive, chiming clean tones to tight, aggressive high-gain sounds. And despite its tonal versatility, the Two Channel Custom is quite easy to dial in fast. You get two footswitchable channels, a footswitchable solo boost, an effects loop (with send/return level controls), and a powerful set of tone-shaping controls. Sweetwater's got your desert island amplifier - the PRS Two Channel Custom.

PRS Two Channel Custom 50W Tube Amplifier Head at a Glance:

  • Professional features and high-class tone

  • Flexible tone-shaping control
  • A sweet-sounding, assignable reverb
Professional features and high-class tone

The PRS Two Channel Custom is easy to integrate into virtually any guitar rig. You've got switchable 4/8/16 ohm speaker outputs, so you can easily connect whatever type of speaker cabinet you prefer. And the effects loop has send/return level controls, making it simple to keep your signal level consistent throughout your effects chain. And just like every PRS amp, the Two Channel Custom has easy-access bias points on the back panel for easier tube maintenance.

Flexible tone-shaping control

You've got a lot of playing to do before you've heard all that the Two Channel Custom has to offer. Two channels give you everything from extremely clean tones to raw, aggressive high-gain sounds. For a more modern sound, the Mid tone control on the lead channel can be pulled for mid-scooped tones, perfect for metal. A presence control lets you dial in as much intensity as you want, and pulling it engages the Depth circuit which adds low-frequency emphasis in the power amp stage. Long story short, if you've got a tone in your head, you can probably create it with the PRS Two Channel Custom.

A sweet-sounding, assignable reverb

You get a rich-sounding reverb onboard the Two Channel Custom amplifier, and it's more flexible than you might expect. Give the reverb knob a pull and it assigns itself to just the clean channel - push it back in and it's on for both channels. So whether you like reverb on everything, or just on some of your parts, you've got what you need in the PRS Two Channel Custom.

PRS Two Channel Custom 50W Tube Amplifier Head Features:

  • Modern-sounding amplifier with features designed for the professional gigging guitarist

  • 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
  • Footswitchable solo boost makes it easy to cut through the mix
  • Rich-sounding reverb can be assigned to both channels or just the clean channel
  • Lead channel has a push/pull mid-scoop control
  • Pulling the presence knob engages low-frequency emphasis
The PRS Two Channel Custom could be your desert island amplifier!

Outstanding Tone!

I own the 1x12 combo version of this amp. I've owned many, many amps over the years including vintage & modern Marshalls, Mesa Boogie, Sovtek, Peavey 5150, XXX, & JSX, Musicman, Ampeg, etc. This amp blows them all away! The clean channel has a Fender'ish tone with the ability to go from a very clean sound with a warm edge to it to a slight blues crunch. The gain channel can go from a 60's classic rock sound and all the way up to modern rock/metal sound. The guys in my band noticed immediately how great this amp sounded live and how well it cut through the mix. The closed back cabinet design gives me that "stack" sound. I love the independent solo channels boost and the reverb defeat pull out switch for the gain channel. I might have to buy another!

Sweetness

I have a bunch of amps. I love my Boogies and Fenders. I wanted a versatile gig amp. I found it with the PRS TWO CH. I would give a 5 if it had a low watt switch and I had played it for a year with no issues... So I don't know how reliable it is but that does not seem to be an issue. I can get almost any tone from this amp. It has a clean tone as good as any BF Fender I have ever played. You can push the clean side with any pedal and it sounds great. One thing that blows me away is that YOU CANT GET A BAD TONE from this amp. Plug in and play twist the knobs to extremes and it still sounds good. Grab a single coil guitar and then a humbucker adjust for volume with the boost and your good to go. I play vintage rock/blues with a 2x12 open back cab and it just sounds sweet or raunchy as needed. The lead channel is good enough that you really don't need a OD. IN FACT I would feel confident in gigging just plugged straight in. The lead CH takes pedal well if you want to put an edge to the tone or add more saturation but for me that is really not needed. I don't play metal but with my 2x12 Mesa slant cab I can get really good metal tones. If you want an amp that just sounds so good you can't stop playing it grab one of these from Sweetwater. Karl and Sweetwater are the best and most professional in the business. Can't say enough good about the service there.
