Guitar World Verdict

While the MT 100 isn’t overflowing with bells and whistles, you can always buy the extras you need to suit your gig and know that your amp money has all gone on the thing that really matters: great tone. Which the PRS MT 100 has by the truckload.


  • +

    Great-sounding and affordable three-channel head.

  • +

    Simple no-frills controls.

  • +

    Easy to set up and use.


  • -

    It really needs to sit on a 4x12 to look right, which narrows its appeal.

  • -

    No popular modern features like DI outputs, speaker emulation or power reduction.

Mark Tremonti is one of PRS’s most prolific and dedicated artists; his boundless talents are more than one or even two bands can satisfy. Having found global fame with Creed, Tremonti went on to form Alter Bridge in 2004 with Myles Kennedy, followed by a solo album project in 2010 that turned into the band Tremonti. 

All three projects are still on the active list, with Creed set to reform again for a tour in 2024. The guitarist is just as busy on the gear front, with Core and SE PRS electric guitar models alongside the well-received MT 15 head – which is now joined by a new addition, a guitar amp that Mark has been deeply involved with through the design and test phases and is now using in live shows, the signature MT 100 head.
