The Blackstar ID Core 150 is a great value guitar amplifier that can be used at home, in the studio or live with everything you need in a single box. There are few other amps that can match the power and versatility of the ID Core 150 without costing a whole lot more. From the guitarist looking for their first gigging amp to the pro who just needs something for home practice and recording the ID Core has a use for every guitarist.
Huge Range Of Tones
With 6 different amp modes as well as reverb, delay and modulation effects on top of the new octaver there are very few sounds that the ID Core 150 can't pull off. From sweet country and blues with short delays and reverbs, to massive hardcore metal Blackstar have covered everything in this new powerful ID Core amp.
Even better than all of the amp models and effects however is the use of Blackstar's ISF feature. This lets you dial in the amp to sound like more of the traditional British amp or take a flight and get that thick American tone or any point in between. This is really useful if you want the cleans of a classic American combo but the drive sounds of a big black and gold stack amp.
Looper Built In
More and more musicians are making use of loopers to add layers to their playing in both solo projects and in bands. This amps built in looper is easy to use and works great on and off stage with no latency on the footswitch so that you don't get caught out with weird timed loops.
150w Of Power!
At 150w this amplifier is certainly powerful enough to fill up a small to mid sized hall no problem. Plus because this is solid state power you can easily turn it down to home levels so you can get the full sound out of this amp at any volume level.
There are a few really important connectors on this amp that just make it so much more usable over other similar amps. Things like the line in and cab simulated line out make practicing at home and recording a breeze. The built in USB interface works fantastically as well so even if you don't have an audio interface you can still record direct in to your computer.
