Archetype Clean (Paul Reed Smith® Archon® (clean channel))

Archetype Clean, the Helix model of a Paul Reed Smith® Archon® (clean channel)

Recorded using a Jackson Soloist with a Seymour Duncan 59 Humbucker in the neck position. Default amp and cab settings, spring reverb added.

The PRS Archon is a handwired 100 watt amp powered by 6L6 power tubes. Try this amp as an alternative to a JCM 800, it has more gain and a bit more character out of the box.

This model is for the Archon's clean channel. The "Archetype Lead" model is for the amp's high-gain channel.
