This is the same amp as the 50 watt version only twice the power. With that comes only a slight change in tone. You will get more headroom and more overall push in the feel of the amplifier. The same great features and basic tone is still here in all of its glory.

I have never been a fan of the PRS guitars and so I was a little hesitant to hear one of their amps but to my surprise this amp sounded very good. It has a extremely transparent clean tone that is one of the best cleans I have ever heard. Then you take it up the volume and you get a pretty good moderately distorted tube driven tone. This amp is not high gain and is designed for the clean tones.

UTILIZATION

Paul Reed Smith Blue Sierra 100W 2x12 Combo Guitar Amplifier Features:

* All-tube 2x12" combo
* 100 watts
* 12AX7 preamp tubes, EL34 power tubes
* Voiced for clean to moderately overdriven tones
* Onboard reverb

SOUNDS

This amp sounds pretty good and will sound best with a single coil guitar in my opinion. It is very chimy and sparkly type clean tone. Not really a Fender tone but a different character all together. It takes pedals real well and provides a nice warm shiny tone.

I really like the tone of this amp with a PRS guitar. I not a fan of their guitars but it seems to fit the voicing of this amp perfectly. I am sure they used those guitars to voice this amp obviously. There guitars really come alive to me with this amp. This amp is not going to be high gain at all. This is blues Texas tone and can get a slight medium distortion crunch. It takes pedals really well so that is a plus.

OVERALL OPINION

This is one heavy duty amp. If you are looking for a great vintage tone and feel from a medium gain to clean amplifier then this is your ticket.


This amp is nice but extremely overpriced. I cannot understand for one second how PRS can think that this amp has anything more than a Fender amp of the same features. Then again you can buy a Two Rock amp with about the same features for even more than this. I have rated the overall opinion a little lower for one reason....PRS jacks their prices up way too far. This amp is no longer available so you would have to go the used market for it. I have seen them for around $2300 give or take a few hundred from time to time. For a single channel clean amp this is a bit ridiculous. This is basically the reason I have steered very clear of his guitars. They are very overpriced and this amp is the same way.
