Company History

In 2004 four friends, all bandmates, were looking for a new challenge. Having worked together for years at the highest levels of the amp designing industry, their dream was to create new and innovative guitar amplifiers and pedals that would be the ultimate tools for self expression.

 

Having spent two and a half years doing intensive technical research in a garden shed in Northampton England, the first Blackstar products were ready and in March 2007, Blackstar was officially launched at the Frankfurt Musik Messe.

Since then we have moved from the garden shed to our own premises, which has a purpose built lab and studio and we've been lucky enough to add some amazingly talented people to our team.

 

Eight years on, we have been on a remarkable journey and been privileged to meet some incredible people from all over the world and call them our friends. From artists like Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne/Firewind), Neal Schon (Journey), Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir) and James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers), to the many players that support us and come and meet us at shows.

Since those early days we have continued to grow as a company, but one thing remains true. We're all musicians and are truly passionate about what we do - making great guitar amps for players around the world.
