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

Channel Choices

Channel Choices

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 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.

Love it

I was hoping to find an amp plugin that sounds great and has a lot of versatility. I demoed a bunch of the amps on here and most of them them felt dull and muddy. This one stood out from the rest, I played on it the rest of the day. The 3 channels give you a really wide range of tonal possibilities, from totally clean to screaming drive and anywhere inbetween, and they all sound great!

Sweet Sounds

Killer plug in, very happy with the clean as well as the overdrive sounds. Not bad for the buck!

Probably the best amp emulator to date

Downloaded it yesterday and tried it most of the day. In a nutshekk this is the best clean tone I had so far. Very Fender like clean tone with solid basses and crispy hights on channel 1. Channel two is great for EL34 typical Marshall sound. It does crunch to quickly in my view and you need to turn down the gain to the bear minimum if you wnat a sound just about to break-up. Channel 3 is overdriven. Good for solos. I am very happy about my purchase. :-)

Very versatile amp!

I was out of my studio and needed to record a song quickly. I tried PT100 plugin because of my deepest admiration for Pete and it's just awesome! I was able to use it on all of the tracks in the songs. It's so good that for the most time I see no reason for driving to my studio. UAD Arrow + PT100 – perfect setup for my home.

The best lead guitar tones I've ever used from a plug-in!

Having played and tested hundreds of amps from vintage to modern, since 1981, I can say it's amazing to have access to such great tone, without having to haul around a truck full of amps (the quality is good enough to use in a live setting, sent to front of house). I would give it five stars, if it could run at 192khz. It sounds great at 96kHz, but most of my projects are at 192, so it's a little inconvenient to have to convert all the audio per session. I spent over a decade having tube amps built and tested to fit my playing style and found that some inline class A power sections using only one tube have an amazing singing lead sound (if designed correctly). It seems the Suhr amp is class AB. It would be cool to see an update that lets you switch between different types of power amps and maybe even different tubes, transformers and different bias settings. To have a real amp do this would be very expensive and weigh a ton, but it now seems feasible with this great technology.

Suhr PT-100

I am a studio engineer and professional guitar player. I am so impressed by this amp that I may buy an arrow interface to try and play it live. One thing is for sure... there just is no reason to mic up a guitar. This stuff is next gen. Incredible. I’m sorry but if you don’t think so then you don’t know what to listen for. I’ve driven this thing with a custom les Paul and hot fender strat. Just beautiful.

Intuitive and great sounding

So easy to quickly pull out a great tone from this plug in. And possibly one of the best defined top ends I’ve heard in the digital realm.

My new favorite!

This one and the friedman are my go to guitar plugins because they sound more real
and are really versatile. Lots of great usable presets!!

Very good transparant amp

While still fiddling with, my impression is a great sounding and versatile ampsim. Good clean as well as overdriven sounds. Very usable for most guitarists

Excellent

One of the best guitar plugins made by UAD, I still prefer a real amp but if I need a plugin I choose this over the ENGL, Marshall or Fender. Tons of presets for this one!!!

One more tool for the toolbox

I'll be honest, I haven't been impressed with many of the UAD guitar amp plugins (Buxom Betty and Fuchs Train II being exceptions), but this one is absolutely fantastic. Great presets, lots of options to get the sound you are after with little effort required. With the $50 Labor Day coupon, this was a no brainer. I wish the Marshall plugins were up to this quality. No "fizziness", great clarity, and pretty much any kind of tone you are after is possible with this amp. Please do an Orange plugin next (but only if it's also by Brainworx)!

LOVE'n THIS AMP !

if you're a tone head or a fan of Pete Thorn , this is a MUST HAVE Plug In for you !!!

Excellent plugin

For me it's the best guitar plugin for a UAD device so far. Clean and clear interface, a lot of presets, each one sounds great, and they named in a way that makes sense and makes it easy to navigate through.

Maybe the best amp plug out of UA yet!

Having some good amps, I'm not quite a raving fan of amp plugins except quick mixing applications. As most everyone complains about, the visceral experience is missing. Well, it's still kinda missing, but for 149.00 plus any coupons you may have, this might be the best amp plug from UA IMO. Cleans are decent, semi dirt is very good and even the highest gain settings are workable. I like it! For comparison, I a/b'd the PT100 plug with a Friedman Small Box mic'd with 57/121. At low volumes it was pretty close for authenticity! Not bad when comparing on tape (Pro Tools 11) a 3000 dollar plus rig to 149.00. You can't ignore the simple setup, go to presets, and $.
