    25th Anniversary Amps

    1st time I ever heard the 25th Anniversary amp was at XPRS. Howie was playing one with a Modern Eagle Quatro and it blew me away. I walked over to Jack Gretz and pulled the trigger immediately on one with the paisley and wood.

    The more I play this amp, the more fortunate I feel to have one. Just curious how many of this model are represented here and whether or not you guys are experiencing the same love affair. Here is #77 of the 1st 100.

    BTW, this amp KILLS with my "87 Standard.







    For those who have never heard this amp, here's a great video with Nicky on guitar.

    One more with some history and Junior Clark on guitar.

    Hans,

    I agree There are some great demos of Howie on youtube from the 2010 experience.

    It also blew me away and I also had to pull the trigger a year later just after the 2011 Experience.

    I have 67/100 with Rev B EJ Mod w/ 2x12 cab. It breaks up in all the right the right spots and cleans up with a turn of the volume knob.

    Very cool, Hans!

    I don't have a 25th, but it seems it would be similar in many ways to the HXDA.

    Yup, the HXDA is basically the 25th without the attenuator rotary, and the HXDA switches added. In fact, you can send a 25th back to PRS and have them add the HXDA mods...

    So without the mods, is it basically the HX, the DA, or something in-between?

    Without the HX (Hendrix) switch or DA (Duane Allman on Live at the Fillmore East) switch, it's a tricked-out plexi circuit with an internally bridged 1st and 2nd channel (and some other goodies).

    The transformer was created by CineMag and is a reverse-engineered copy of the one found in Eric Johnson's late 60's ('68, I think) Plexi.

    The HXDA is internally bridged, too, so it's similar in that way; I think the transformer is also CineMag, though I don't know if it's the one from the DA or the EJ Plexi. They're probably very similar sounding amps.

    Not as visually stunning as Hans' but still a 25th matched set.

    To my way of thinking, that rig looks very handsome and professional!
