You guys remember the Rusty Wright Band, right? Here's the original story if you want to catch up. In short, The Rusty Wright band is a killer blues band out of Flint, Michigan. They play everywhere and have recently started using their Blackheart Amps for rehearsal and studio work.

Thanks for the kind words, guys.
Hope you keep on playing your Blackheart and spreading the music!
Guitar Fixation is a relatively new site, but has a ton of great info. From product reviews to interviews with amp designers, Guitar Fixation caters to the tweaker and tone junkie. So when we were searching for Blackheart-related tweets (oh yeah, follow us if you're into Twitter @blackheartamps) and saw a link to a Blackheart Killer Ant review, we had to check it out and, boy, are we glad we did.
