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.

Now You Can:

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

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.

Suhr PT100

I own various amp sims on the UAD platform and this is my now go to plug in for guitar. It covers all the gaps from sparkling Fender cleans to modded Marshall and everything in between. Brilliant.

Modern Crunch

I was looking for a more modern crunchy sound. Something less vintage that would work well with more modern rock and metal. This plugin hits all the buttons for me. I have the Marshall collection and Engl Savage which I love but I needed something a little cleaner crunch with sustain and Suhr PT100 did the job.

The best virtual multi-channel lead amp I've ever used!

Having played through thousands of amps since the eighties and having many tube amps modded for me, this is a great tool for recording. I'd give it 5 stars if I could use it in 192K sessions (it only works at up to 96K). It would be neat if UA could make a unit like the Line 6 Helix for guitar players and bass players (to use live with, or without a computer and still function as a recording interface for studio use).

very versatile

i was wavering between fender tweed and this one over a week. fender tweed is a great amp sim but it's very distintive sound which is great for certain genre. pt100 can cover a lot of styles. i only wish they make fender twin reveb someday

Not what I expected.

I purchased the Suhr PT100 just trying to fill my bundle quota. I was expecting to use the other UA amp plugins more than this one. In trying out all the amp plugins I got in my bundle I got around to tweaking the PT100 last. I find that it gets the tones I want with less trouble getting them to 'seat' well in the tracks; less manipulating so to speak. I like the PT100 in the mix best so far. I couldn't imagine anyone not being less than completely satisfied with this purchase. Also if I was to pick one or the other of the Suhr offerings I would pick the PT100 first. Although you would like to have both at some point.

Very Forward/Present and Covers a Lot of Ground

Really like the clean tone with single-coils and it feels like you can "discover" a new cool tone every time you experiment with it. Easy to get around it, and easy to quickly get a very playable sound. My humbucker guitars prefer the other Suhr (the SE100) for that classic rock high-gain sound. But this PT100 has something special for the clean to crunch area. Both!

Best all-in-one

This is the best sounding all in one amp sim I have ever played. The PT100 I think can be used to cover any genre. Has great speaker options and the tweak-ability of the amp controls are highly intuitive and probably the best I've every seen from a sim or actual amp. I would recommend the PT100 to anybody especially if you can only afford to buy one amp plugin.

Add PLENTY of Colored Harmonics to BASS, SYNTH BASS and 808 !!!!! Wonderful !!!

Not All UAD Guitar AMP are perfect for BASS synth and 808.....you will have to find wich one....but the PT100 and his little brother...are fantastic on BASS, not only Guitar !!!! Best and most easy way to add Harmonics to a Sub Bass......

Great sounding Amp Emulation

The Suhr PT100 is a great sounding Amp Simulation. I like to use it instead auf a real Amp because it´s easy to use and the is no big difference to the original Sound. Very usefull, if recording electric guitars.

Suhr PT100.

Brainworx makes excellent amp plugins and this is one of the best hi-gain amp models. It includes a good selection of well recorded cabinet impulses.

The sound is very balanced and it’s easy to get good results. Tight bottom end and a nice and soft top end without any harsh upper-mids. The response of the amp is very good and dynamic playing works very well on this amp.

Very good for classic rock, metal and fusion styles. This is my new favorite.

A plugin of Epic Status

One of the biggest pursuits of any guitar player/engineer is to get that magical legendary clean and overdriven tones from their guitar tracks. Sometimes, no matter what you do there could be something missing or just a lacking “it” factor. So imagine how surprised I was when I plugged in for the first time and found that the “it” factor was coming out of my monitors in bucket loads. Hands down... one of the must get guitar amp plugins today!!!

Get This

Being an owner of most of the UAD amplifiers, this one is special. I use a lot of Telecasters in my electric guitar playing and this nails those early 70s/Led Zeppelin 1st album tones to a tee. The distortion breaks correctly and notes hang. The only thing missing is facing your guitar to a speaker cabinet to get feedback. The only negative I would have is lack of 4-10 or 1-15 cabinet emulations.

Almost real

The Suhr PT100 Amplifier is without a doubt a great plugin emulation of the original Suhr tone, but somehow the low end is always missing life with Brainworx emulations. Compared to the Softube developed amp emulations the one by Brainworx always seem a bit lifeless especially in the low end. Also the upper mids tend to sound too much like filtered noise instead of organic overtones. Again, I am not saying the Suhr PT100 Amplifier sounds bad. Not at all. Would not have bought it otherwise. But there is still room for improvement. Would love to see more guitar amps by Softube, how about a Marshall JCM800 or Mesa Mark IIC+?

A lot of plugin for the money!

Versatile UAD guitar amp plugin. The 3 channels provide nice tonal range and quality straight out of the box. Responsive 'real-time' feel when dropped into a UNISON slot. A lot of plugin for the money.
