According to a recent Ultimate Guitar interview, Mark Tremonti already has a 100-watt prototype version of his signature 15-watt PRS MT 15 guitar head sitting in his studio, and it might soon be available to the rest of the world. Read on to find out what the guitarist had to say about his latest collaboration with PRS.
PRS Mark Tremonti MT 100 signature amp
It turns out that PRS artist and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti has a fully working, twin channel 100 Watt version of his signature amp currently residing in his studio. Designed in collaboration with Paul Reed Smith and made in the USA, the amp is based on his signature MT 15 model, but with a lot more output. It may be the perfect tool for guitarists who liked the the tones of the MT 15, but needed more gigging volume.
The MT 15 was originally launched two years ago in NAMM 2018, so it makes sense for the PRS/Tremonti team to update it now with a new, larger output version.
“I’ve got it sitting in my studio right now. And this time there’s a ‘Dumble-esque’ boost” – Mark Tremonti
The MT 100 (if that is the final production name?) will have a clean channel that is based around a Dumble, with a Dumble-Style boost. According to the guitarist, it’s a “combination of all my favourite tones on this one channel”. The amp will also feature plenty of headroom, ideal for live applications and pedalboards.
Although he doesn’t go in depth about the gain channel, I’m sure it will be pretty useable, considering he is well known for his high-gain tones.
