Blackstar say.

Sonnet faithfully amplifies the natural response of your acoustic instrument capturing every nuance of its tone and your performance.

Sonnet has a wide dynamic range and has been carefully designed to reproduce the full frequency range produced by an acoustic instrument.

From the extended sub response required for percussive styles, to the ultra-high frequency territory covered by many piezo pickups – Sonnet gives you full control over everything.

The High Pass Filter (HPF) and Brilliance controls allow you to adjust the crucial body resonance and piezo high-end of your acoustic instrument.
