Introducing the new Suhr PT-100 Pete Thorn Signature Edition! 

Pete Thorn is considered by the many guitarists out there to be one of the front runners when it comes to his tone. He's a gearhead like all of us, and he certainly has an ear for what sounds great.

Many years of testing and refining on the road with names such as Chris Cornell, Melissa Etheridge, and others, Pete Thorn and John Suhr worked together to create the ultimate, no compromise, multi-channel amp - now MIDI switchable.

The PT-100 Signature Edition is available in a classic black tolex and appointed with black knobs and a rich midnight anodized aluminium faceplate.

The Suhr PT-100 Signature Edition features a 100 watt, three-channel tube amplifier head loaded with a custom "Plexi-style" output transformer, four EL-34 power tubes and six 12AX7 preamp tubes, a solid-state series/parallel effects loop, 4-button programmable footswitch.

The PT-100 clean channel offers a full range of American voiced clean sounds. The overdrive channel, distinctly British, features dual gain and level controls for independent rhythm and lead tones.


CHANNEL 1 (CLEAN)

CRUNCH:  Engages an additional gain stage for selected channel for a smooth crunchy overdrive sound.
BRIGHT 1:  Adds brightness and sparkle to Channel 1.
GAIN 1:  Adjusts the overall gain level of Channel 1.
BASS:  Adjusts the amount of low end. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of low frequencies, giving you a fuller tone. Turning it counter clockwise will reduce the effect and tighten up the bottom-end which is useful when performing at louder volumes.
MIDDLE:  Adjusts the midrange. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of mids, giving your tone a fatter response. Turning it counter clockwise will produce a mid-scooped sound.
TREBLE:  Adjusts the top end. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of treble, giving your tone clarity and brightness. Turning it counter clockwise will produce a warmer sound which is excellent for dialing in smooth fluid-like lead tones.
LEVEL 1 (MASTER VOLUME):  Adjusts the overall output of Channel 1

CHANNEL 2 / 3 (OVERDRIVE)

BRIGHT 2/3 SWITCH: Adds brightness and cut to Channel 2/3.
GAIN 2: Adjusts the overall gain level of Channel 2.
GAIN 3: Adjusts the overall gain level of Channel 3.
BASS: Adjusts the amount of low end. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of low frequencies, giving you a fuller tone. Turning it counter clockwise will reduce the effect and tighten up the bottom-end which is useful when performing at louder volumes.
MIDDLE: Adjusts the midrange. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of mids, giving your tone a fatter response. Turning it counter clockwise will produce a mid-scooped sound.
TREBLE: Adjusts the top end. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of treble, giving your tone clarity and brightness. Turning it counter clockwise will produce a warmer sound which is excellent for dialing in smooth fluid-like lead tones.
LEVEL 2 (MASTER VOLUME): Adjusts the overall output of Channel 2
LEVEL 3 (MASTER VOLUME): Adjusts the overall output of Channel 3
BOOST: Adds additional boost to selected channel.
CHANNEL SELECT SWITCH: Selects between Channels 1, 2 & 3
