Suhr® PT100 Amplifier
The ultimate, no compromise, boutique tube amp.
For nearly 30 years, John Suhr has crafted high-end tube amps favored by tone freaks looking for refined, versatile takes on iconic amp designs. The Suhr PT100 Signature Edition amplifier is one such specimen; a three channel, 100-watt design collaboration between Suhr and world-renowned guitarist, tone hound, and badass, Pete Thorn.
Developed by Brainworx — and fully endorsed by John Suhr and Pete Thorn — the Suhr PT100 Amplifier plug-in authentically captures the original amplifier's startling array of tones, expertly emulating its custom "plexi-style" transformers and EL34-powered output section. And it’s available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.
Use your UA Interface to track through the Suhr PT100 — with no latency
Audition 120 separate high-end recording chains, featuring multiple cabinets and classic microphones
Shape tones further with FX Rack’s Vintage Delay, noise gate, high/low filters, and more
Easily craft dynamic clean, crunch, and hot-rodded British tones with exquisitely-voiced tone controls
Take A Listen
The Suhr PT100 plug-in offers three ultra-versatile channels that sport a jaw-dropping amount of tones, no matter what style of guitar you play. Channel 1 offers bold, classic clean sounds in the vein of legendary American amps. And by engaging the Crunch feature, you're afforded scintillating, punchy, clean‑ish tones.
Channel 2 is based on Suhr's SL68 amplifier — a Thorn favorite — and gives you a versatile tonal palette, spanning subtle grind to searing distorted tones. Finally, Channel 3 flaunts a molten “modded British tone,” that only Suhr can deliver. Think thick and juicy, with rich harmonic overtones and limitless sustain.
Suhr PT100 FX Rack
The Suhr PT100 plug-in offers additional control over your tones via the Brainworx FX Rack. It features a Noise Gate, switchable high and low-pass filters, and a Power Soak circuit that allows you to dial in as much power amp goodness as you want, without having to crank the output gain.
The Suhr PT100 also includes 120 impulse response Recording Chains that were perfectly captured from several boutique cabinets and recorded through Brainworx's vintage Neve console with an array of high-end and vintage microphones and outboard gear, giving you "record ready" tones, instantly.
Unison™ Technology for UA Audio Interfaces
Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the Suhr PT100 amplifier plug-in gives you the impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors that have contributed to making it one of Suhr’s most popular high-powered amplifiers.

Flexible do-all workhorse
At first I didn't go for this sim, it was really sterile and almost digital sounding. As I dug in more, I realized that's not only part of its sound but also just an artifact of it being so damn accurate. I find myself using all the channels but sometimes doesn't give enough ... soul/oomph.
Bought it for the Clean sound....Great amp for this..
Not my cup of tea
I think it lacks punch and has a bit of digital distortion.
I think other UA amp options are better
Sounds awesome. Very happy with the clean tone
THE BEST PLUGIN FOR GUITAR
This is the best amp simulation available, ABSOLUTLEY, super happy wit this investment. I use it everyday in my recording studio.
Absolutely killer sound.
I just finished a two-day plugin amp shootout. I tried this amp against BiasFx, Softube Amp collection, Guitar Rig, and Helix Native. This amp made everything else sound like a toy...a cheap, thin-sounding toy. This plugin is by far the closest thing to an actual amp that I've gotten with a plugin. Worth every penny.
This amp simply sounds great, the playability is very high, whether light or overload can debug a beautiful tone, completely can give up my heavy hardware amplifier, the price is also very good, very good！
Recently purchased this amp to spice my guitars a bit. Really heavy sound.
Nice Amp for my Fender & Gibson
Sounds great.Easy to use. 3ch and Boost, versatile! Buy It and Use it~
If you can only buy one amp sim, buy this one
This amp simply sounds great and is low on CPU. Extremely versatile, goes from clean(really "clean" cleans) to high-gain and everything in between. The boost is very useful to get a bit of extra bite. Pretty much all of the cabs are useful. I have several Apollo interfaces and sometimes I work on a Apollo Solo that does not have a lot of DSP. With this amp sim I can have real time monitoring with other effects as well without thinking about DSP limitations.
All Around Killer Sound
So I had been building my collection of UA amp plugins for a while and the PT was always on my radar. I love all the other amps for their personalities, but this one to me kind of hits everything. I would say it’s very clean and pure from dirty to crystal clear.
This is a game changer for me…the 3D aspect of the sound of this amp sim is something I have not found in ANY other sim! I’ve always had to mix an amp sim I like with a real amped track in order to achieve a 3D aspect of that sim, but I don’t think that will be necessary anymore…thus sim HAS IT! Great job, UA/Brainworx!! Great versatility too, with the three channels!
The only glitch about this is that my DAW freezes up if I play the track with the Suhr GUI open. But that may be due to my glitchy DAW. Still easily worth that inconvenience!
Wow! What an amazing amp sim.
This is one of the best amps I've ever heard. Period. The amp sim is so good, that now I want to buy a real one to have for gigging. The responsiveness to picking is dynamic and the tone for each channel is so rich. I'm very pleased I finally bought this plug-in. I'd love for UA to find a way to add some patching options to allow inserting effects into the amps input and/or fx loops like you would with real hardware.
My Favorite So Far!!!
I have enjoyed all of the amp sims from UAD but this is my new go to. Love the tones and the feel I can get from this plugin.
Only solution to make modern tones with UA system.
I like it very much. Gain tones are incredible and IRs are useful for various situations. But still I missing crystal and punching clean tones from real amps.
Es espectacular para crear sonidos ambientales y aporta una crujiente distorsión a los clean
