The Blackstar team are all musicians who understand the importance of good tone, whether practicing at home or on stage. Headquartered in Northampton, England, and with over 50 years of combined experience in guitar amplification design and production, Blackstar is committed to providing its consumers with the most advanced tools for self-expression.
In 2004, four friends, all of them band mates, looked for a new challenge. Having worked together for years at the highest levels of the amplifier design industry, their dream was to create innovative new amplifiers and guitar pedals that would be the best tools for self-expression.
After two and a half years of intensive technical research in Northampton, England, the first Blackstar products were ready and in March 2007, Blackstar was officially launched at the Musik Messe in Frankfurt.
