The PRS HX 50 captures the flexibility, power, and balance of late 60’s British-inspired tone. A continuation of PRS’s popular HXDA amplifiers, PRS HX amps feature a refined control layout and a newly-documented “Authentic Hendrix” Touring Circuit. This circuit is heavily inspired by one of Hendrix’s personal amps, purportedly used at Woodstock, which Paul Reed Smith and PRS Amp Designer Doug Sewell were able to study in 2018. Designed to push the high-end so it is very clear, but not so much that it’s harsh, the PRS HX shines without glaring and allows for aggression that can be backed off for smooth, sweet tones.
- Two EL34EH power tubes, the best pre-amp tubes available, and a custom-designed Straight Edge output transformer provides truly premium, bold tone
- The power supply and filament design make the HX 50 remarkably quiet with little to no amp "hum or hiss"
- Features a 3-band TMB tone stack, 3-way bright switch, high-mid gain switch, and presence controls for added flexibility and increased control of their tone
- Designed with internally bridged channels with individual volume controls, which eliminates the need for a jumper cable (historically used on the outside of the amp) and allows players to more easily dial in their distortion level and tone by blending the lead and bass channels’ individual volume controls, bringing more modern convenience to the amp
