Precise, yet warm amp

Souly , 14.12.2017
pros:
+ This amp's marketing is build on statement, that this amp can help you achieve any sound you need. And I have to agree with that - amp translates precisely all the details of picking and all overtones your guitar produces. Sounds are really variable and controls really simple.
+ It is really loud. On the other hand it may be too loud for home studio, so you'll need to take it into account.
+ It sounds simply great and it great for it's price.

cons:
- It produces silent ambient noise at overdrive channel. It is not really annoying, but it may need noise gate when recording with low dynamic volume played.
- Power/stand by are placed at the back side of amp, not really big problem though.

In conclusion I'd say this is absolutely great amp, it would be suitable for stage, rehearsal or recording sessions. Really professional tool and nice price.

p.s. Lot of thanks to Thomann support! Order was processed fast enough and delivery doesn't took much time.

The dr ...

Andreas120, 14.11.2017
Before ordering the PRS Sonzera, I ordered the Egnator Rebel 30 MK II Head and the Egnator Tweaker 40 Head, both as B-Stock. The Rebel 30 did not bother to reproduce a sound and instead thanked it with a pungent odor from the inside of the case. The Tweaker 40 worked and the Clean channel sounded really good, but unfortunately the Overdrive (Hot) channel could not keep up with what the Clean channel did.
That's why I ordered the PRS Sonzera 50 Head as new.
Well, the box was already open, the protective film shredded and the amplifier chassis moved in the case of lack of tightened screws. But that could be everything, as well as the one or the other scratch on artificial leather, fix or conceal.

But the sound of Sonzera makes up for everything.
The clean sound is one of the best I've ever heard. Those who would like to spend a few thousand euros more to get a little bit more resolution, hear m. E. grow the grass.
The Sonzera answers every note played with precision, with a full, round bell-shaped tone that makes you addicted.
The Gain Channel - problem child of many other amps, as this usually misses the pressure and sufficient bass and middle parts, sets the clean sound one more on top.
The Sonzera expresses crunchy to high gain sounds so powerful from the speakers that even though my midrange and bass controls are mostly on the rightmost end of the keyboard, they have powerfully controlled back the mids and basses.
The sound of the Gain Channels does not sound quite as delicate and creamy as, for example, a good Jet City, but looks a little rougher (EL34 let greet) but always cultivated. Setting the drive knob above the 12 o'clock position allows the notes to sustain with a great sustain and sing that it is a real pleasure. Here, the notes tilt over into overtones by themselves.

Everything else works, how it should work. It is a decent footswitch for channel switching and the very good reverb included. The effects loop works perfectly and allows you to loop in further effects, such as delay, etc.

Conclusion: thumbs up for the powerhouse that wants to be better played on stage than at home, unless you live alone at the edge of the forest.
