PRS HDRX amps bring power and balance. Featuring a newly-documented Hendrix Touring Circuit, the PRS HDRX amp is heavily inspired by one of Hendrix’s personal amps purportedly used at Woodstock, which Paul Reed Smith and PRS Amp Designer Doug Sewell were able to study. The PRS HDRX is designed to push the high-end so it is very clear, but not so much that it’s harsh, so the amp shines without glaring and allows for aggression that can be backed off for smooth, sweet tones.
Signal Chain Notes: The signal from the HDRX 100 & 50-watt amp heads (seen in-frame) was sent to mirrored speaker cabinets (out of frame) and close mic'd with a Byer Dynamic M160 on one speaker & a Shure SM7 on another. These close mics are accompanied by one of Paul Smith's custom-built room mics. These mic signals were sent to multiple custom-built RCA tube-driven mic preamps and were recorded through a UA Apollo x8p and ProTools.
