    I've never played a PRS Harmonic Generator. I'd like to hear one some day.

    Nice!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    I remember checkin' those out at Makin' Music when I bought my first PRS, I really think more amps should have noise gates built in.

    You know - they got a bad wrap but I'll be honest, I watched some vintage DVDs from Paul and Co.... Paul and Mike Ault got some KILLLLLLER tones using an HG. I know it can't be studio magic so what gives!

    I know the basic history of the HG from what can be found on the web, but i can tell you this is the warmest sounding solid state amp i can remember playing with. I have own it for several years and that time was its proper debut! I got complements on the tone it has and 2 other bands played with it so i did appreciate its tone from the outside and to me, in that moment and with a few beers in! sounded like a tube amp!

    The drive channel is powerful, but it has a remarkable Santana/Boogie tone to it, and it takes pedalboards extremely well! i think it took them better then my former Mesa LoneStar Special ever did.

    I will keep this amp for many more years, seems like a great lead or backup option.

    I saw Paul's band play the Hard Rock in New York City a looooong time ago and Paul was playing a Dragon through one of these I think. I was not so much a gear guy then but I do remember they sounded killer.

    The Harmonic Generator circuitry is not dead. Eric Pritchard went on to perfect the circuitry after the project was killed.

    I had two half stacks at one point. Kept the cabs, but the heads couldn't hang with real tube amps, to my ear. Lit up cool, though!
