MT 15 with red lights

In collaboration with Mark Tremonti, we are proud to introduce the new MT 15 Amplifier.

Lunchbox Hero

MT 15 with red lights

“We knew we wanted a low-wattage amp. The challenge was getting a lot of tone and features in a little box. We’re all blown away with how it turned out. It’s going to be great for someone to take it out of the box, set everything to noon, and have it sound great.” – Mark Tremonti

The MT 15 is a commanding two channel amp with balanced aggression and articulation. Powered by 6L6 tubes, the MT 15 has a large, bold sound, so you can dig in heavy with rhythms but also get singing lead tones out of one amp. Whether recording, practicing, writing, or playing a small room, this amp has everything you need.

The MT 15’s design started with heavier players in mind, but in the end, it has a lot to offer players of all genres. Like the PRS Archon amplifier, the MT 15 features five gain stages before the Master for full, lush distortion. The gain channel gets big, chunky tone with massive, tight low end, but it never loses its articulate note definition or great lead tone. The clean channel is bright and chimey, good with chords and fingerstyle playing – whether with a pic or not. The clean channel also features a push/pull boost control that adds a little overdrive for old school crunch. No matter what tone you dial in, the MT 15 stays balanced across the spectrum with a sweet, smooth tone that won’t bite your head off.

Additional features include an effects loop and bias adjusters that are accessible from the back panel for ease of servicing. Despite its 15 watts, the MT 15 sounds more like 50, so a half power switch that takes the MT to 7 watts is a welcome edition. Bottom line, the amount of features, the hugeness of the sound, and the raw horsepower of the circuit make the MT 15 an impressive lunchbox hero.

The MT 15 is Mark Tremonti’s first signature amplifier.

Meet The All-New 2018 SE Acoustic Lineup

 2018_seacoustics_on_bar

After countless hours spent researching, prototyping, play-testing, and enjoying, we are excited to introduce to you a whole new lineup of PRS SE Acoustics. Below, meet the new models and read about how they came to be.

The 2018 SE acoustics are offered in six (yes, six!) varieties. Our goal? To offer players a wider selection of features than ever before, and no matter the model, to give musicians the perfect tool to utilize for songwriting, studio recording, or live gigging on stage.

The six new models can best be broken down into three pairs: the SE AX20E & SE TX20E, the SE A40ESE T40E, and the SE A50E & SE T50E.

The A & T prefix in each model correspond to the body shape, “A” for Angelus, “T” for Tonare. To help you visual the product offerings, check out the graphic below:

Both shapes are designed to be instantly comfortable and well-suited for fingerstyle or picking players.

Listen to Paul Reed Smith explain some of the process and philosophies behind these new instruments:
