Country: USA

Amp / Pedals: ID:260TVP

About: I started piano training when I was four years old, and I learned to play, but piano was not my instrument of choice. Later, my uncle Ray let me play his classical guitar when I visited him. And, soon the guitar captured my heart and I became hooked. Eventually, I was able to manage some chords and started to try to copy some of the famed guitar heroes of my generation. However, I soon found out that I was nowhere near their level, so I started to do my own thing and wrote my own songs.

Why Blackstar?: I own a ID260:TVP and its great. Really did the amp tube settings and the TVP. Also like the super wide stereo. Comes with a great footswitch, and for gigs I just need the amp and the footswitch. No more cumbersome pedal board. Its a great amp!

Amp / Pedals: HT Stage 100

About: I've played professionally in attribute bands and original bands. I've rocked my way around a lot of Europe. I am cooler than a polar bear wearing mirrored sunnies smoking a Marlboro red. When I'm not out rocking harder than hell I'm sleeping. I'm also very modest.

Why Blackstar?: It rocks!

Amp / Pedals: HT Club 40

About: Hello! I'm a guitarist for 15 years,and carry only the BlackStar HT 40 for the shows in Brazil. I'm focused on Rock/Blues but with a more modern tone, something the Blackstar can offer. Work a lot with the sound more "raw" guitar plugged straight in Blackstar, so the amp feel "burning" in my ears. It's hard work with very large Rock'n'Roll in Brazil, the country of Samba, but still managed to present us every week, but hopefully it will be increasing the shows we do.

Why Blackstar?: A complete and versatile amp, everything a guitarist needs to play from Classic Rock to Modern. Easy to work, the HT 40 fits any occasion, miked or not, big house using a 4x12 cab or small houses, using such combo. And the HT 40 and my Gibson Les Paul get along very well. A hug! thank you

Amp / Pedals: HT-5R

About: Started playing the acoustic guitar in my 20s after having been on the drums since my teens. While focused on the acoustic guitar, it was an on and off affair. Loving rock music, I really wanted to make a move to the electric guitar but it was "too hard". The best time is always now. So after dabbling for two decades and now in my 40s, I have made a commitment to take the electrical guitar to a new level. With a new guitar and new amp, I am ready to ROCK!

Why Blackstar?: Wanted a simple yet powerful amp for home use. After testing many different amps, I decided to go for HT-5R Combo, which has been absolutely awesome! Whether it's Long Train Running or Enter Sandman, this baby delivers fantastic cleans and some badass distortion too.

Amp / Pedals: ID:30TVP

About: Started playing guitar in 2011 and has consumed my life ever since! Although my musical tastes vary, I play in the range of Blues Rock to Hard Rock and anywhere in between.

Why Blackstar?: I first started with the HT-5C but sold it due to financial issues. Over the next year and a half, I've chased tone using various other products, but nothing had satisfied my tone quest other than Blackstar! With the ID:30, it is so easy to dial in tones that it's often hard to put my guitar down without coming up with a couple of riffs under my belt! I can record with this amp anytime during the day (or night) at home, while being able to be gig ready using the the same tones when recording.

Amp / Pedals: HT Stage 100

About: Hey guys, I play lead for the band 13 and also killerstance. We are currently recording our debut album. I have been playing for about 8 years now. I have a beautiful collection of Gibson Les Pauls, run a Blackstar ht rig and mostly mxr pedals. My guitar hero is the king Zakk Wylde

Why Blackstar?: Ht-100 kills all clean tones, with an mxr Zakk Wylde overdrive running out the front you can really dial in the mids and shred
