In keeping with the spirit of the ‘holy grail PRS’ thread, I thought it might be fun to talk about holy grail amplifiers. I have one of mine, and one of my two runners-up is still in my studio. The third left ten years ago, and I regret letting it go. So. Tops: 1. PRS HXDA - I could go into a zillion reasons why this works well for me, but it’s the closest thing to two vintage plexis in one, and is better than I ever imagined a modern amp could be. It’s been my #1 since the day it was delivered. First Runner-Up. PRS DG30 - The yin to the HXDA’s yang. At first, I didn’t know quite how to get the most out of this amp, but once the light bulb went on, blammo! It’s an absolutely killer design, and works in a mix extremely well with the HXDA (or most other amps, to be honest). Second Runner-up. Two-Rock Onyx Signature V2 - Two-Rock is known for their single-channel, cascading gain amps, but the Onyx was a true two-channel amp with separate tone and gain controls for each channel (and tone stack bypass for when you wanted everything on ‘11’). Could do Dumble, could do Marshall, could do Fender-ish clean tones. I had four versions of the Onyx at different times, but the V2 Sig was the penultimate, and I tubed it with NOS glass just to make things even more awesome. I wound up preferring the more vintage tones of the other two amps I listed, but this was a great amp. I’m also digging Mesa’s new Fillmore, but it’s too soon to know whether it’ll ascend the Mountain of Holy Grails.
