design of the amplifier demonstration clips tries to give you a glimpse
of amplifier behavior. But a minuscule glimpse is all it is. The number
of possible clips is huge, almost countless. Consider the product
of the numbers of music styles, playing techniques, guitars, speaker
configurations, amplifier voices, and control settings. It is virtually
impossible to hit upon precisely your sound. Although there are many
clips of Pritchard amps available, nothing can replace personal testing.
These clips do not put an instrument in your hands and let you hear
what your fingers are doing. Hopefully, these examples will inspire
your personal investigation.
Computer speakers do not begin to reproduce these clips
clips are not the last word for your purchase - yours is.
clips can not show the limits of Pritchard amp's potential. They were
done to provide greater confidence that your personal testing of these
amplifiers will be successful. These clips are not completely representative
of Pritchard amps’ capability. First, Pritchard amps do work
excellently with many instruments besides guitar and harp. They too
are in the future. Second, the playing style and tone settings may
not be as you would do. Third, be aware that recordings have post-playing
processing. Please take these factors into account when listening
to these clips.
Clips below are
available as MP3 compressed audio files. Select one of the two bit
rates 128Mbs or 64Mbs MP3pro.
is an accomplished player of a wide variety of styles. He began playing
in rock bands as a youth, moved into hard rock and then eventually
into the complexities of jazz. I met Robert about 20 years ago. He
tested amp designs that predated the PRS Harmonic Generator and gig-tested
more designs in the years following. He was the primary musician and
spokesman on the Pritchard Amps video. We are quite pleased to present
his interpretations of Pritchard Amps’ capabilities.
group of clips was done at Blue Ribbon Sound and engineered by Roderick
Kohn. The marathon session began with James “T” Stillson
playing rhythm guitar through a Pritchard 1-12 Tunnel Back™
Black Dagger, Simon Maria playing bass through a Pritchard prototype
4-10/1-5 prototype bass rig, and Ritchie Johnson playing drums. Once
all of the rhythm tracks were done, Miguel Weissman joined in the
playback of some of these tracks by blowing harp and then “T”
played lead guitar for all of the clips below except for the metal
clips which were done by Roderick.
Note: These clips
were all done at small club levels.
