NAMM-PRS Demos Swamp Ash Special,Orianthi,DallasII

February 9, 2010
PG's Jordan Wagner is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 NAMM Show where he visits the PRS booth. In this segment, we talk with Paul Reed Smith about what's new from his company in 2010 and the announcement of the 25th Anniversary editions on several of his models.

First up, we check out the Orianti SE Signature model that has a korina body, maple top and neck with an ebony fingerboard. It also has a PRS-style trem and PRS humbuckers in both positions.

Next is the Swamp Ash Special Narrowfield, which is the first PRS production model to feature the new Narrowfield pickups. The Narrowfield pickups focus the string attack much like a singlecoil but are hum-canceling. The result is a new sounding pickup system, which blends features of single coil, soap bar, and humbucking pickups. The Swamp Ash Special is a 25th Anniversary model and features shadow bird inlays, anniversary headstock eagle and an optional maple fretboard.

The Dallas II is a 50-watt boutique amp well suited for the working musician. While the amplifier will support many musical styles, it is well suited for the single coil player as well as anyone looking for a high quality amp with plenty of head room to support their favorite pedals. The half hand-wired and half PC board construction allows for all the quality and sound of PRSs original Dallas amplifier, but the Dallas II fits comfortably into our Tuxedo line of amps. Like the original Dallas, the Dallas II provides the classic, balanced sounds of 6L6 tubes, huge sounding cleans, and moderate overdrive.

The PRS Signature amplifier is a further refinement of the PRS Original Sewell that has been tweaked to Paul Reed Smiths personal specifications. Paul Reed Smith describes this EL34 amp as the Original Sewell on steroids. It has a simple layout with the only controls being a Bright switch, Treble, Bass and Master Volume.
