Blackstar Amplification is hosting a series of special “Blackstar Blitz” events at premier dealers across the United States. Guitarists and amp aficionados alike will be able to hear these all-tube, high-gain British amps and the HT tube-driven pedals in all their glory. From the bone-crushing Series One and hand-wired Artisan Series, to the affordable HT Venue Series and HT-1 and HT-5 practice amps, Blackstar lets players realize “the sound in their head.”

Blackstar product experts will be on hand at each event to perform demos and help attendees create their own signature sound – from USA to the UK and anywhere in between – using Blackstar’s proprietary ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit  that enables infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network.

Attendees can also register to win an HTOD1 Tube Overdrive Pedal ($229 retail value) and an HT-1 amplifier signed and personalized by Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), as well as receive fun Blackstar freebies on-site. Anyone who enjoys great tone should not miss these exciting, all-ages events.
