Zac Harmon endorses Category 5 Amps

For Immediate Release

Category 5 Amplification adds Zac Harmon to List of Endorsing Artist’s
Dallas Texas

Category 5 Amplification has added Zac Harmon, the 2004 International Blues Challenge winner, 2005 best new Blues artist winner,- XM radio, and Blues Music Awards 2006 best new blues artist debut winner to the list of accomplished artists endorsing Category 5 Amplification. Zac will be playing the Andrew model amp, a 2 channel, 44 watt, 2 x 12 amp, powered by 2 – KT-66 tubes. Zac spends a majority of the time on Channel 2, voiced closely to a Blackface era Super.

“This amp covers both rhythm and lead tones with ease. It has a nice chime and rich harmonics for the rhythm chord work, and when I need to let lose with my PRS, it just sings. I noticed these amps at the International Blues Challenge, which I was hosting. They sounded so good, I just had to have one.” As I live in the Dallas area, Don at Category 5 worked with me to get the right tube configuration for my sound – and I think we got it!”

“We are proud to have Zac playing our amps”, remarked Don Ritter, Artist Relations for Category 5 Amps. “Zac is not only a great guitar player, but a phenomenal entertainer and band leader. Once you’ve seen a Zac Harmon show, your instantly converted to a fan. His extensive experience in the business of producing records shines through. The band is tight and he is quickly building an international following, with approx 200 nights a year on the road. Just the kind of artist that a Category 5 amp is designed for – a true road warrior.”

Zac is touring in support of his critically acclaimed album, “The Blues According to Zacariah” Zac’s album is available through his website and through iTunes. He will be doing a European leg this fall in Switzerland. Zac’s touring schedule can be found 
Category 5 Amplification specializes in creating professional quality hand wired tube amps with vintage tones and modern features. The company was formed in part to be a vehicle for giving back to the blues community and to assist in hurricane relief, (hence Category 5).
