MELVILLE, NY, March 10, 2011 â€” Blackstar Amplification is hosting a series of special â€œBlackstar Blitzâ€? 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 â€œthe sound in their head.â€?
Blackstar product experts will be on hand at each event to perform demos and help attendees create their own signature sound â€“ from USA to the UK and anywhere in between â€“ using Blackstarâ€™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.
