Pete has now developed some gear of his own, as he has worked with Suhr to create his own signature amp, the Suhr PT-100. Limited to 50 head and cabinets sets worldwide, the PT-100 is an extremely rare amplifier, but will be featured at a special event at Vintage King Nashville on June 26. With a product walk through from Pete and a Q&A afterwards, attendees will get a firsthand look at this amazing amp.
The PT-100 is the result of ample road testing and tweaking, including nearly five years of building off the original model that Suhr created with Pete. The end product is a slick three-channel tube amplifier head matched with an impeccable cabinet that is stocked with two 12 inch speakers. Outfitted with a pair of Celestion Creamback speakers, this head and cabinet combo can truly kick out some powerful sounds.
Offering the best of tube and solid state technology, the PT-100 comes packed with four EL-34 power tubes, six 12AX7 preamp tubes and a solid-state series/parallel effects loop. Throughout his many travels, Thorn thought that the option for a MIDI programmable switch would be great, so John Suhr worked on building the adaptable technology into the head. In addition, Suhr added a fat boost to the amp that offers an organic take on the traditional volume booster pedal.
