PRS are keeping it simple but versatile in 2017, with a brand new amplifier lineup called the Sonzera. The amp features a no-fuss, 2-channel layout: clean and lead, each with independent controls. PRS is describing the clean channel as “full” and “3D,” with a 3-spring reverb adding shimmer and chime. And the lead channel can go from “edgy overdrive” to a “full-on soaring lead tone.” Simplicity and versatility is the name of the game here, and the Sonzera aims to deliver note-clarity and definition in a flexible package.
Of course, we all know PRS is synonymous with quality. So it’s no surprise that the Sonzera will be built like a tank with a steel chassis and custom transformers for ultimate reliability. The amp also comes in 3 flavors: 20 or 50-watt combos and a 50-watt head. Catch a glimpse below:

These amps are already being hyped by some high-profile players, including Chris Robertson from Blackstone Cherry, Mark Lettieri from Snarky Puppy, and Dave Knudson of Minus the Bear. Hear it in action:
