Paul Reed Smith Guitars 20-Watt Combo Guitar Amplifier with Short-Bottle 6L6 Power Tubes

PRS Sonzera 20 is a 20-watt combo amplifier with two independently controlled, footswitchable channels designed for maximum versatility in the spirit of vintage amps that allowed you to control your tone rather than the amp being in control.

The clean channel delivers full, 3D tones reminiscent of American 1960s and 70s amplifiers. The lead channel is related to the clean channel circuit-wise so that 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, on neck pickup settings and with single coils, while the low end response of the lead channel is full, tight and clear.

Both channels on Sonzera 20 are designed to maximize note clarity and definition. The global presence control and the tone stack allow players to dial in a variety of tones from bell-like chime to warmer, thicker tones.

The Sonzera 20 Combo also features global reverb control designed to enhance notes without clouding them. The reverb can be turned on and off via the included 2-button footswitch.

The built-in effects loop allows players to use all their time-based effects without negatively impacting the overall tone of the amp.

In addition to its versatile tone, Sonzera 20 Combo 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.

PRS Guitars 5-Year Amplifier Warranty

For a period of five years from the original date of purchase, PRS warrants its amplifiers to be free from defects in materials and workmanship, subject to the limitations contained herein.

Amplifier tubes are warranted for 90 days.

Amplifier speakers are warranted for one year.

This warranty is extended to the original retail purchaser only and may not be transferred or assigned to subsequent owners. In order to validate your warranty and as a condition precedent to warranty coverage hereunder, you must return your warranty registration within thirty (30) days following the original date of purchase. Your proof of purchase or sales receipt must accompany all requests for warranty coverage.

This warranty does not cover:

  • Any amplifier on which the serial number has been removed or altered.
  • Any amplifier not purchased from an authorized dealer, or upon which unauthorized repair or service work has been carried out.
  • Any amplifier which has not been registered at the factory within one month of purchase, or whose warranty card has been altered or includes false or incomplete information.
  • Any amplifier that has been damaged due to an accident, negligence or misuse, including exposure to extreme humidity and temperature.
  • Shipping damage of any kind.
  • Normal 'wear and tear,' including but not limited to any discoloration, fading or damage to the covering or finish, or worn hardware, or any issues not related to the failure of the amplifier or any component part.
  • Component damage, including but not limited to transformers and output tubes, caused by misuse of speakers, improper speaker load, or absence of speaker load.

PRS makes no other express warranty of any kind whatsoever. All implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, exceeding the specific provisions of this warranty are hereby disclaimed and excluded from this warranty. Some states and/or countries do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties so that the above may not apply to you.

PRS shall not be liable for any special, indirect consequential, incidental or other similar damage suffered by the purchaser or any third party, including without limitation, damages for loss or profits or business or damages resulting from use or performance of the instrument, whether in contract or in tort, even if PRS or its authorized representative has been advised of such damages, and PRS shall not be liable for any expenses, claims or suits arising out of or relating to any of the foregoing.

If at any time during the warranty this amplifier malfunctions due to faulty materials and workmanship, PRS Guitars will, at its sole discretion, repair the defect without charge or replace it with a model of similar specification and value that does not exceed the original purchase price of the amplifier.

To obtain warranty assistance, this guitar must be taken to an authorized PRS Guitars dealer with a copy of the sales receipt to obtain a Return Authorization prior to return to the factory.

All shipping and insurance, including any perceived 'collector' value, are the sole responsibility of the original purchaser.

On arrival at the PRS factory, a determination will be made whether the defect is covered under the terms of the warranty. If the repair is covered under the terms of the warranty, it will be repaired at no cost to the original purchaser including return shipping. If the repair is not covered under warranty, an estimate of the cost of the repair to the original purchaser will be given.

This warranty applies to the United States and Canada. The terms of warranty in other countries are defined by the PRS Distributor in that country and may differ from the above terms, conditions and length.
