Melville, NY – July 13th, 2017 – British guitar amp company, Blackstar Amplification, continues its 10-year anniversary celebration with the release of the Venue Series MK II amplifiers. This bestselling line of all-valve amplifiers has been completely revamped and adds guitarist-friendly features such as power reduction, re-amping capability through a direct out with speaker cabinet emulation and footswitch control over performance-critical functions. The Venue MK II models will still feature the original Venue’s award-winning ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control that allows guitarists to completely change the tone stack with a single knob between traditional American voicings and traditional British voicings.

“There isn’t a better time to announce this new series than their 10th anniversary,” says Brian Piccolo, Director of Guitar Brands at Korg USA. “The Venue series has been their most popular line and I think this new series will impress guitarists even more,” Piccolo concludes.

The new Venue Series MK II will be available July 2017 from $699-$999 and will be debuted at Summer NAMM’17 at the Korg USA booth #953. For more information, visit
