Blackstar - 'Sonnet 120'
Your Sound. Just Louder.

Blackstar - 'Sonnet 120'

120-watt 1x8" Combo AmplifierBlackstar’s ‘Sonnet 120’ has one primary purpose: to bring natural-sounding acoustic guitar amplification to acoustic guitarists everywhere. And it succeeds in its task tremendously, retaining every nuance of your guitars character and tone, whilst also revealing the unique shades of your own playing style. This top-shelf acoustic combo amplifier is magnificently adept at capturing percussive flourishes, accents and tapped harmonics and various other unconventional techniques.

Perfect for performing solo artists, the Sonnet 120 incorporates separate microphone and instrument inputs, alongside a line input and Bluetooth functionalities. User-friendly tone-shaping, including fantastically responsive EQ’s and an acoustic-optimised high-pass filter are also on hand to mould your tone to your likings.

The Sonnet 120 features four built-in reverbs, which add a wonderfully thick, but natural-sounding reverb for that real studio-quality sheen to your performance. Dual FX-Loops, USB and XLR D.I outputs and an adjustable tilt-back stand round off the Sonnet 60’s robust and well-rounded features.

Powerful, compact and easily portable, Blackstar’s Sonnet 120 is the epitome of professional acoustic amplification on the go.

Truly Transparent Tone

Blackstar - 'Sonnet 120'

retain your guitars natural voiceThe majority of acoustic guitarists, if you were to ask, have a strong disdain for amplifiers which take away from the guitars natural voice. After all, why install a high-grade piezo pickup, only to have it discoloured and tainted beyond recognition?

Fortunately, of course, Blackstar understand this well. That’s why they designed the Sonnet 120 to be as transparent as possible. It authentically amplifies the organic response of your acoustic guitar. If like many, you’d describe yourself as picky about acoustic tone, the Sonnet 120 is the amplifier for you.

Just ask Jon Gomm! He relies upon the Sonnet to capture his unconventional and captivating technique, and boy does it deliver!

Simple User Interface

Blackstar - 'Sonnet 120'

Built-in REVERBSBlackstar’s Sonnet 120 makes it simple to dial in your desired tone. Of course, its transparent nature offers a fantastic starting point. But more than that, the highly-responsive 3-band EQ allows you to customise the amp to the venue that evening with absolute minimal effort, whilst the ‘Shape’ buttons toggle between a flat response, one with a mid-cut and high/low boost.

An optimised highpass filter boosts your instruments natural acoustic resonance, while a ‘Brilliance’ control adds the perfect amount of high-end sparkle to your piezo. There’re also 4 integrated reverbs (Hall,Studio, Chamber & Plate) to add that finishing touch to your sound.

Sonnet 'Recroute' Overview

4K Recording

share your sonnet's sound with the worldThe Blackstar Sonnet Series amplifiers feature a built-in USB Audio function for audio playback, recording, and live streaming. This offers both quality recording capabilities direct to your DAW on PC, Mac, iOS or Android devices, as well as the ability to live stream the incredible sound of your amplifier direct to popular streaming apps such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook Live, and many more.

The Sonnet RecRoute application allows the user to select the routing of the USB Audio signal, choosing between two options;

Stereo Mix - A mix of Channel 1 and Channel 2 with Stereo Reverb
Split - Independent Channel 1 (Left) and Channel 2 (Right) with no Reverb

Using this application, the sensitivity level of each option can be adjusted by up to 10dB to suit your connected recording device/application.

The default setting is Stereo Mix. This is a mix of Channel 1 and Channel 2 with the currently selected Reverb setting on your amplifier and is ideal for capturing a live recording, jam session, instruments with Reverb or live streaming directly to an app/website.

You may want to record separate tracks – for instance, when using the Sonnet as an interface – which you intend on mixing later. For this, select Split from the Sonnet RecRoute application. This will allow you to record both Channel 1 and Channel 2 preamplifier output independently to your chosen DAW on your PC, Mac, or mobile device. This will not include Reverb.
