The Blackstar Sonnet 60 Acoustic Guitar Amplifier in Black is an all-new Acoustic Guitar Amp designed to give the natural response of your acoustic instrument the amplification it deserves, capturing every nuance of guitar tone and your performance. Lightweight, compact and feature-laden, leave it to guitar legend Jon Gomm to sum it up for you - "Every other amp changes me, squashes me, confines me, they just can't cope. I'd given up on Acoustic Amps, until I heard the Sonnet."
We were lucky enough to try out one of the Sonnet 60's before release and boy do they sound incredible. The sound of gently plucked acoustic guitar filled the room thanks to the custom-voiced Natural speaker. The highs sparkled and the low end was powerful without being boomy, allowing bass notes to ring out clearly with amazing sustain. When you begin to strum more harshly the sound is full with plenty of body and bags of complex overtones, accurately conveying the vibration of the acoustic soundboard to a tee. Phase and Shape switches let you carve your tone further alongside a dedicated EQ for each channel.
Ins and Outs
The Sonnet 60 features four simultaneous inputs so you can plug in your instrument, vocal microphone, and line-in. All inputs can be used at once for the ultimate in versatility and you've also got Bluetooth connectivity for supreme quality wireless audio playback. USB Audio out plus a MIX DI Output ensure that your ready for any situation, whether you're recording at home or playing on stage. A Tilt Back stand gives you the ultimate sound projection, great for rehearsals or on stage.
State of the Art Effects
The Sonnet 60 comes with two stunning state-of-the-art studio-quality reverbs, HALL and PLATE. The PLATE is bright, adding pure shimmer to the high end whilst the HALL sends your tone interstellar, making it sound as though the guitar is emanating from endlessly resounding cavernous space. A High Pass Filter and Brilliance controls allow fantastic fine-tuning of the acoustic instrument, a crucial feature when you need to tame some of the wild acoustic frequencies during a live show.
