Echo Factory is proud to work with…


At Blackstar, everyone is a musician and they understand the importance of great tone, whether practicing at home or on stage in a live environment. All their products are designed to be world class in both quality and tonal performance while giving you the guitarist the tools you need to find ‘the sound in your head’.

“Blackstar are proud to partner with Echo Factory. The ethos of Blackstar is to support  musicians and encourage young people to pick up an instrument, and stick with it, so they can find the immense enjoyment of expressing their art.  This is supported by Echo with their impressive training programs and state of the art facility. They offer courses in all areas of the music business which benefit the student with balanced and much needed skills for their future career.  I have no doubt we will be seeing  the stars of the future coming through the Echo Factory doors and Blackstar are happy to be part of that journey.”
