New Blackstar ID-Core - Awesome!!

The new Blackstar ID:Core guitar amplifiers were introduced at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, winning Best in Show.

These amps have an intuitive controls set like a traditional amp, but have the versatility of being programmable, allowing you - the guitarist - to custom design your own sound: Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. When used together with Blackstar’s patented ISF control you can get the exact tone your hearing in your head. The effects are stunning stereo modulation, delay and reverb.

Deep editing and storing of patches is simple using the Blackstar INSIDER software. Patches can be shared, uploaded and downloaded via the online community and the USB connector also allows you to record from your amp directly to your computer.

We took these amps for a "test drive" this month and they really are the most surprising new amplifiers we have ever heard.  Terrific sounds that are absolutely huge in a small, affordable package.  From $99 to $199 - what a screaming deal!  And they're on their way to Avalon Music.

Here's a couple of videos from Blackstar to start the excitement!

New Blackstar ID Amplifiers

Our friends at Blackstar have hit a hoe run with the new ID series of solid state amps.  Yes.  Solid state.  But you won't believe it when you hear them.

The new ID: Series represents a truly groundbreaking achievement, combining unique innovations, an intuitive, traditional control set and the versatility of programmability.

Blackstar's patent-applied-for True Valve Power offers six distinctly different power valve responses - EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, KT88. When engaged it delivers the response, dynamics, sag and break-up characteristics of a valve amp and uniquely delivers the same acoustic power output as an equivalent valve power amp. This means that for the first time ever, in an affordable series of amplifiers, these products deliver live without compromise - True Valve Power means loud as valve™.

The Voice control has six different channels - Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. When used together with Blackstar's patented ISF control you can get the exact tone you're thinking of.

The effects section delivers studio quality modulation, delay and reverb effects simultaneously that you can store with your sound.

Deep editing and storing of patches is simple using the supplied Blackstar GUI software. Patches can be shared, uploaded and downloaded via our online community. The USB connector also allows you to record your amp directly to your computer.

An emulated output, MP3/line input and midi footswitching functionality complete the package.

And they are on their way to Avalon Music!  Here's a video for more on the ID Series.
