In 2004, four working musicians and seasoned veterans in guitar amplification design all sought to bring groundbreaking, innovative design to the industry of guitars amps and pedals. These four friends, all with years of extensive experience in the field, together started Blackstar, based in Northampton, England, with the mutual goal of providing musicians with the ultimate tools for self-expression.
Two and a half years later, after intensive technical research, Blackstar was eager to introduce their first products to the market in March 2007, with their official launch at the Frankfurt Musik Messe. Blackstar has come a long way since then, eventually moving into their own facilities with a studio and lab as opposed to the garden shed where they previously spent time researching. They have also recruited some of the most talented and highly skilled individuals in the industry.
Blackstar offers players a wide variety of guitar pedals and guitar amplifiers to assure that every guitarist can find the pedal or amp (or both) that suits their individual needs.
