Sambora Gets On Board With Blackstar

In a major scoop for Blackstar Amps, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has chosen the Northampton-based company as his amplifier supplier.

Sambora now uses the Blackstar Series One 200 and Artisan 100 amplifiers.

“From studios to stadiums, these are the amps I use,” says Sambora.

Joel Richardson, Blackstar’s marketing and artist liaison manager, added: “We’re extremely proud to have such a high-calibre artist as Richie joining the Blackstar family.

“With 2012 marking our fifth anniversary it’s great to see such a diverse range of guitarists choosing Blackstar.

“It shows how Blackstar amps cater for up-and-coming bands all the way through to legends such as Richie.”

Sambora is about to release his third solo album; he’s been recording this with producer Luke Ebbin. The guitarist is also currently working on a new Bon Jovi record.
