Most acoustic players have a strong disdain for amplifiers that alter the sound of our instruments. After all, we install high-end piezo systems in our guitars to capture their natural tone. Why would we want to change it? Blackstar understands this. That’s why they designed the Sonnet 60 to be as transparent as possible. It faithfully amplifies the natural response of your acoustic instrument — it’s just louder. If you’re picky about your acoustic guitar tone, the Sonnet 60 is the perfect acoustic guitar combo amplifier for you. Just ask Jon Gomm — he relies on the Sonnet to capture his unorthodox arsenal of modern, neo-Michael Hedges playing techniques, and it definitely delivers the goods.
The Blackstar Sonnet 60 makes dialing in your tone easy. Of course, its transparent sound gives you a great starting point. But beyond that, fine-tuned EQs enable you to tailor the amp to your venue with a minimum of effort, while Shape buttons toggle between a flat response and one with a mid-cut and high/low boost. An optimized highpass filter enhances your instrument’s acoustic resonance, while a Brilliance control injects your piezo with the perfect amount of high-end sparkle. You also get two built-in reverbs (Hall and Plate) to add the final bit of polish to your performance.
If you’re a solo performer, you’ll value the Sonnet 60’s real-world features. Dual inputs — each with their own separate set of controls — accommodate both your instrument and your microphone. A polarity reverse function ensures maximum sound quality in any situation or environment. The Sonnet 60’s flexible outputs enable easy USB recording and XLR DI-ing to front of house. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity makes streaming backing tracks from your smartphone a breeze (there’s also a line input if you’re going old school). You also get footswitchable reverb and amp mute. The Sonnet 60’s handy tilt-back stand is icing on the cake.
