PRS have recently announced that they will be adding an entirely new range to their NAMM 2017 amps lineup. The Sonzera Amplifier is made up of a 50W combo, 50W head and 20W combo with each amp offering two channels -clean and lead. With additional controls and three-spring reverb (independent reverb control 50-watters) the user is granted complete and independent control of their tone. A brightness and presence control further assist the user help dial in their tones and match to their preferred settings and sound.

Able to switch effortlessly between the glistening transparency of its clean channel to the soaring robust tone of its lead channel, the Sonzera range is able to offer a stunning spectrum of audio possibilities at the flick of a switch.

Each of the amps is fitted with a JJ ECC835 and 3 12AX7 preamp valves with two power valves, giving them an extremely robust tone that is potent at both high and low volume. Combos are fitted with 12" Celestion V-style speakers, meaning that projection is strong and comprehensive.

PRS see themselves as dedicated to the guitar's rich heritage and strive to commission new technologies that will enhance their instruments with an indefinitely remarkable tone. Remarkably attuned to the development of high quality, meticulously crafted guitars, PRS continue to build upon their legacy with exceptional craftmanship and unadulterated passion.

Notable users of the amps are Black Stone Cherry's Chris Robertson, Snarky Puppy's Mark Lettieri and Minus The Bear's Dave Knudson.
