Overview

People tend to underestimate the power of 15 watts. With monsters like the Mesa Boogie Rectifier series reaching up to 150 watts, metal-minded guitar players sought a smaller, lower wattage amplifier capable of the same roaring grit at more manageable volumes.

Mark Tremonti is the guitarist of the bands Creed and Alterbridge. His tone comes from the aforementioned Rectifier series amplifiers plus Bogner Ubershalls.

Signing with PRS, he sought an amplifer to deliver the same high gain, 6L6 power tube equipped roar as the amplifiers he's grown used to using. All this but in an affordable and compact package. The result is the MT 15 Signature amp.

PRS adds their own flavor to the Mark Tremonti MT15 amplifier. It is a 2 channel lunchbox style amplifier at a deceptively loud 15 watts.

It features tones ranging from crystal cleans to roaring but tight high gain. With the clean boost, the amplifier essentially becomes a 3 channel amp with clean, crunch and lead channels.

An effects loop helps patch in your desired effects to augment its already amazing clean section.

If you're looking for a tight sounding, modern metal lunchbox amp, the PRS Mark Tremonti MT 15 is a good amp to get.
