Win Mike Peters Blackstar Amp

Win the Blackstar Amplifier used by Mike Peters on the Spirit Of ’86 Tour.

Blackstar Amplification and Mike Peters of The Alarm have come together and are offering fans the chance to own the very same Blackstar HT Club 40 (Limited Edition Red) Amplifier, that Mike Peters has been using throughout the entire ‘Spirit Of ’86 in 2016’ tour of North America.

Mike Peters first started using the Blackstar HT Club 40 earlier in the year and (as fans who have seen the tour can testify), the amps have played a major part in defining the sound Mike Peters has aspired to ever since that first experiment with electric pickups in acoustic guitars that The Alarm began back in 1981.

Listen to what Mike Peters has to say about his relationship with Blackstar in the following video clips.
