Product Description

The Sonzera 50 is a 50-watt amplifier with two independently controlled, footswitchable channels designed for maximum versatility and in the spirit of vintage amps that allowed you to control your tone instead of the amp being in control.

The clean channel delivers full, 3D tones reminiscent of American 1960’s and 70’s amplifiers. The lead channel is related to the clean channel circuit-wise, so the it can be set up to act as a boosted clean channel or manipulated to make the channels sound like two completely different amps (the lead channel can be set from slight to very heavy distortion by simply using the volume and master controls). The bright switch on the lead channel has been carefully tailored to deliver familiar high-end snap and is particularly effective on the low strings, neck pickup settings, and with singlecoils, while the low-end response of the lead channel is full, tight, and clear.

Both channels on the Sonzera are designed to maximize note clarity and definition, with bright switches per channel, a global presence control, and the tone stack allowing players to dial in bell-like chime or warmer, thicker tones. The Sonzera 50 features independent reverb controls per channel and can be turned on and off via the footswitch. The reverb circuit is designed to enhance notes without clouding them. The addition of a built-in effects loop allows players to use all their time-based effects with ease without negatively impacting the overall tone of the amp.

In addition to its versatile tone, the Sonzera 50 is also designed for reliability and serviceability. The power tube sockets are mounted directly to the steel chassis, and no push-on connections are used – all wires are soldered.

Not what I’d hoped

What is your opinion of this product?
I received this amp in good condition. It is powerful and has a lot of possibilities. For me the sound was way too compressed. The clean channel is very clean but it’s not a pleasing tone. I found it rather harsh. The overdrive channel sounded like a cheap stomp box. It has lots of room to change the OD but it never got to the point of harmonic distortion. I used a 345, Les Paul, Telecaster and Strat and I never found a great tone. I’m very disappointed. And so it goes.

Sounds great, does it all-as clean as a Fender and more crunch than a Marshall.
What is your opinion of this product?
Better than advertised, a real rock and roll amp.

Great Sounding Versatile Amp
What is your opinion of this product?
I have owned many tube amps and this one is one of the best. Hard to believe it's under $1,000. It has much more bottom end than a typical 1x12 and is very loud. It can get that Fender sparkle or the English rock tones of the past. You won't regret this one.

Best in class
What is your opinion of this product?
Just got the PRS Sonzera 50 watt combo. Came with a footswitch, and the amp is two channel with each having it's own eq section.Tested it,played tweaked it, eq'd it and it sounds great. Incredible touch sensitive controls, you can dial in anything, warm sound, articulate, sustains very well for EL34 tubes, and reverb is good. For the price nothing comes close in fit and finish, and sound. PRS has a winner with the Sonzera range which in my opinion makes it the best in class.
