This latest addition to the PRS range is a 100-watt, single channel amp with a switchable gain stage and built-in effects loop. It was designed to be versatile enough to be used in for Mayer’s band and solo shows, as well as for recording, so consequently the it has an evenly spread range that is described by the company as ‘huge and clear’.
“I think amplifiers are such interesting, complex animals,” said Mayer. “The J-MOD 100 is the result of a lot of searching. What is my sound? What are the elements of all these amps I own that should be chosen to go together in one amp and have this really distinct voice? What we ended up with is a really open and expressive amplifier that I feel is a real evolution and a step forward in guitar amps.”
The J-MOD 100 has controls for volume, tone, treble, mid, bass, a ‘bright’ switch for adding high-end, and a ‘presence’ switch, which adds high-end to the power amp section. The amp also features four 6L6 power tubes and four 12AX7/ECC83S preamp tubes.
Those at NAMM 2017 in Anaheim, California, will be able to get the first look at the J-MOD 100, everyone else can check out this new product video below.
