The 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.

Warning: Computer speakers do not begin to reproduce these clips properly.

Note: These clips are not the last word for your purchase - yours is.

  These 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.

Robert Fiester
 

Robert Fiester 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.

 The second 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.
