The ID series is set to take the affordable amp market by storm, offering supreme features and awesome sound at a price you will hardly believe. The 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.
The ID Series consists of 4 amps: The ID:60TVP 60w Programmable combo, the ID:260TVP 2x12 60w Programmable Combo, the ID:60TVP-H 60w Programmable Head and ID:100TVP 100w Programmable head. All the amps feature True Valve Power technology which emulates various popular valve output stages - effectively giving you the option of swapping out valves in seconds without the technical hassle. With 60w or 100w on tap, the Blackstar ID: amps have plenty of power for the stage, but can be turned down for rehearsals and home playing without losing that True Valve Power voicing.
The main features of the ID Series amps include advanced valve emulation technology, and 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 TVP60-H
The ID:60TVP-H is a 60 Watt programmable head version of the ID:60TVP combo, with the same great features in a classic head format.
The ID: Series represents the culmination of more than seven years technical research and development by the same team that designed Series One, Artisan and HT Venue. The unique controls allow you to custom design your own sound, store it and then have the confidence that the amp will perform in a live environment.
By using the unique Voice control, 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 valve™. Individuality is power!

EL84 - 'Bell like full bodied Class A with lots of compression'
6V6 - 'Crisp Class A with high compression and tight mids'
EL34 - 'Classic British Class A/B crunch with full bodied soft break up'
KT66 - 'Rich and warm vintage British hot biased Class A/B'

KT88 - 'Tight, bold and dynamic Class A/B with strong low end'
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™.
