So after a few days with the PRS, I gotta say I'm liking it! Red channel is chunky, rich and smooth! It´s possible to get bedroom-levels type of volume no problem, but this thing can be reaaaaally loud. It takes some steady fingers to adjust for "home use", for the taper is kind "nothing... nothing... can barely hear somethinBAAAAAAH!" type of deal. The gain on tap is ridiculous. And it sounds unmistakable modern, if that means anything. I don't think I have ever gone past 11 o´clock on the dial yet. In fact, I was actually set on buying the EVH 5150III LBXII, when this caught my eye. I tried ´em both in the store, and while I love the hot-rodded Marshall tone the EVH does very well, the PRS had something the EVH lacked. Weight! I don't know if that is the 6L6 tubes or whatnot, but the difference between both amps at gig level volume was noticeable. The PRS shook the room more. At lower volumes, I would be happier with either. And I think the EVH look cooler...
The blue channel is clean. Really clean. Like, no crunch to be had unless you want to make enemies of your neighbors type of clean. So now I get to explore the wonderful world of pedals.
So all in all, I like it. I've been strictly a Kemper-guy since 2013, so this is unfamiliar. First thing I noticed is that I miss performance mode, Kemper effects and the Kemper remote. Now I have nothing. No effects, no way, no pitch, no volume, no morph. I'm still using the Kemper at home and for recording, and the PRS with my Marshall cab will stay at the rehearsal space. Less stuff to move around every week. Haven't tried running the Kemper as preamp yet, perhaps I should go hybrid?
I´ve made my first profile though. And the first thing that struck me is that I have no idea how to share profiles.
