BLACKSTAR AMPLIFICATION
Amplifiers currently produced in Korea and headquartered and designed in Northampton, England since 2007. Distributed in the U.S. by Korg USA in Melville, NY.
Ian Robinson and Bruce Keir founded Blackstar Amplification in 2007. Robinson and Keir are both former employees in Marshall's research and development department, who wanted to create amplifiers and effects pedals that didn't quite fit the Marshall brand. Blackstar started out with a line of valve-powered effects pedals and they have expanded to a full series of tube amplifiers and hand-wired amps. All of Blackstar's design and engineering happens in England, but the production actually happens in Korea. For more information, visit Blackstar's website or contact them directly.
