Blackstar Joins Vox Amps As Tilted Sponsors

We are thrilled beyond thrilled that Blackstar has joined Vox as a sponsor of Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars this 2021-2022 season. They are outfitting our central unit Tilt Core with a new line of gear from the new Vox Go amp series and with Blackstar USB power banks. No more batteries. This is graciously done through Korg USA who distributes this gear internationally. We are happy to represent as Korg USA Artists.

Thank you! This helps so much!

BIG THANKS to Greg Meredith (RChain Cooperative) for his patience and wisdom in introducing us to Rho Calculus as it pertains to creating blockchain contracts.
