Developed and refined over many years, the PRS David Grissom signature amplifiers “DG Custom 30” and “DG Custom 50” and signature “DG Custom 2x12 cabinet” bring David’s discriminating tone to players looking for a highly-responsive, musical amp rig. “I’ve used them on hundreds of gigs and sessions and found them to be equally well suited to both live situations and studio work. Both amps do their own thing, and are far from knockoffs of any classic designs that boutique makers often strive for. I’m excited and proud that these amps are now in production. I’m hopeful that other players will find them as inspiring and musical as I do,” said Grissom.
