Blackstar Sonnet

Blackstar Amplification has collaborated with British singer-songwriter Jon Gomm, one of the world’s most gifted and tonally demanding acoustic guitar players, to create the Sonnet series.

The new Sonnet 60 is a twin-channel amp, which in the acoustic world means you can run two input sources through it, rather than separate gain stages. Channel one has a jack input and an independent gain knob, and features a three-band EQ, plus a reverb knob with which you can dial in either plate or hall-flavoured ambience. Channel two features a combination jack/XLR input and forgoes the three-band EQ in favour of low and high knobs. Both of the channels feature a Shape switch, which provides a mid-scoop when engaged.

Flexible in its approach, the amp is as adept at dealing with the spiky transients typical of piezo systems as it is at offering warm and detailed sounds when using something like an L-5. It’s a strong performer and perfect for both acoustic players and singer-songwriters alike.
