PRS MT15 Mark Tremonti Signature 15W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head
“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
PRS MT15 is a commanding two-channel lunchbox amp head with balanced aggression and articulation. Now packing JJ 5881 power tubes, MT15 punches above its weight class with 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.
MT15's design started with heavier players in mind, but in the end it has a lot to offer players of all genres. Like PRS Archon, MT15 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, with or without a pick. 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, MT15 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, MT15 sounds more like 50, so a half power switch that takes it to 7 watts is a welcome addition.
Bottom line: the amount of features, the hugeness of the sound and the raw horsepower of the circuit make MT15 an impressive lunchbox hero. MT15 is Mark Tremonti's first signature amplifier.
