The Blackstar ID Series is designed to raise the benchmark in the amplifier market by offering guitarists an amp with incredible effects and versatile tonal control, with an underlying solid sound foundation which Blackstar have always said is of the utmost importance.
Core features of the ID Series amps include advanced valve emulation technology, with a high level of versatility thanks to Blackstars programmable interface. Adjust your sound on the panel, add effects like delay and reverb or go into the deep editor via a USB collection to set up exactly the sound in your head. With 128 user patches, you know that you can take it to the stage or the studio and recreate it perfectly every time.
Here's what Blackstar say about the ID:30 Amp:
The ID:15 and ID:30 boast many of the same unique features and functionality as the larger ID models but in a compact combo format.
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 valveTM.
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 free Blackstar Insider GUI software. Patches can be shared, uploaded and downloaded via the online community. The USB connector also allows you to record your amp directly to your computer. An emulated output, MP3/line input and footswitching complete the package.
By using the unique Voice control, the patented ISF and patent-applied-for True Valve Power, these amplifiers allow unparalleled flexibility and ease of use, enabling you to in effect, design the sound in your head and deliver it live as Loud as valveTM.
