First Look: PRS MT 100
Mark Tremonti’s 100-watt signature amp—five years in the making—features three totally independent channels spanning silky, substantial clean tones, responsive, controlled overdrive, and white-hot lead sounds that exhibit incredible definition at the highest gain levels.
The result of many years of R&D and road-testing, the MT 100 is a profes- sional amp for serious musicians. Built on a robust chassis, the MT 100 fea- tures custom transformers and three independent channels with identical controls but truly unique voices.
Each of the MT 100’s three channels is built from its own unique circuit with dedicated preamp tubes to ensure the voicing of each channel is exactly as intended. The Clean channel (like the MT 15) stays pristine and chimey – try it with split or single coils to hear it sing. The Gain channel (also like the MT 15) gets lush heavy tones with massive bass response that is never muddy. And, the added Overdrive channel (modeled after one of Tremonti’s favorite personal amps) brings an incredibly flexible gain structure and musical midrange response to this already versatile amp platform. Select your chan- nel on the amp face or via the included footswitch – both feature matching channel lights so you’ll never lose your place. All three channels share the same preamp tube type (12AX7’s) for ease of servicing.

At a powerful 100 watts, the value of the MT 100 well exceeds its price tag. It is a straightforward, powerful amp full of aggression and articulation, and the onboard effects loop means your pedals are welcome to join the party.
Please note: Mind your master...volume that is. On the Overdrive and especially on the Lead channel, keep the Master down to start. On the Lead Channel, keep the Master below 10 o’clock to avoid dangerous volumes!
