Do You Have a Trade In?

Pre-owned in very good condition with some small marks and scratches, this PRS "30" is a quality valve amplifier head that represents fantastic value at this price.
Loaded with 2x 12AX7 preamp tubes and 4 x EL84 power tubes, this amp can deliver some awesome tones.
About the PRS "30" Controls;
Input: 1/4” standard guitar cord.
Bright Switch: The bright switch adds shimmer in the clean settings. It allows high frequencies to be unattenuated by the volume pot. As previously stated, to achieve bell-like cleans, back off the treble and employ the bright switch. Also, if you are using a distortion pedal, use the bright switch with discretion because it will add sizzle to the higher frequencies. If you are trying to achieve smooth, fat lead tones, the bright switch should be off.
Volume: The volume is one of the most important controls on the amp. Depending on the output of your pickups, you can find your sweet spot at various locations on the sweep. There will be a point in which actual volume stops increasing and the tone becomes thicker and more compressed. Each guitar will react differently and exploring this control should be a source of great enjoyment.
Reverb: The reverb knob controls the amount of reverb added to the guitar signal at the output. Adjust to your liking.
Treble: The treble control is very sensitive and should be used with discretion. Like all three knobs, there are no numbers to encourage you to set the amp with your ears. It affects the gain and distortion of the amp and can work effectively with the bright switch to produce more mid-60’s American “scooped-mid/bell tones.” Just roll back the treble to say 11 o’clock and flip on the bright switch.
Middle: Controls the Mid-EQ tone.
Bass: The bass control is more useful in clean settings and should be used a little more sparingly when overdriving the amp. Back off the bass to say 9 o’clock when initially experimenting with overdrive. Another thing to explore is to turn this control all the way up to phase cancel certain frequencies for interesting tonal effects. Consider the bass “all the way up” at about 3 o’clock. If you like to hang in that “sweet spot,” try the control at about 1 o’clock and adjust the treble to taste.
Master: Controls the overall volume of the amplifier. On-Standby-Off Switch: 3 position switch to ramp up the power on the amplifier. Turn the amp off in the down position, then switch to standby in the middle position, then switch up to turn the amp on.
Jewel Power Indicator: Power indicator. If the jewel is lighted, the amp is on. This does not indicate the standby setting of the amp. Note: An amplifier may be plugged in and “on,” but a malfunctioning or burnt-out indicator will not show the amp is on. Check the power cord and Power Switch if the jewel light is not on. If these are connected correctly, then check the main fuse. If the main fuse burns out, check for proper speaker connections. If the fuses continue to blow, the amplifier may need servicing.
