NAMM 2014: Blackstar ID Core Combo Amplifiers


Following on from our review of the Big, Bad and British Blackstar ID combo series earlier this year, this week at Namm, Blackstar are proud to announce a few new additions to the ID Series - The ID Core.




Available in 10, 20 and 40 watt versions - The ID:Core is a smaller, condensed version of the bigger ID Series Combos but still offer surprisingly wide stereo sound and superb tonal balance in a small, affordable package. These are going to be a sure-fire winner for home practice, rehearsals and even smaller venues (the ID Core 40 is incredibly loud for it's size!) - Each model features:


  • 6 Blackstar voices
  • Patented ISF control from British to American sounds
  • 12 vintage style effects in massive Super-Wide Stereo output
  • 6 Core Sound patch memory bank with expandable bank with included software
  • 3.5mm Aux input and USB audio interface for digital recording
  • Speaker Emulated Line Out for silent practice or recording



The Blackstar ID:Core amp series will be available March 2014, we are expecting heavy pre-orders on these for the home and bedroom amp market so get your reservations in as soon as possible! PMT Pricing as follows:


ID:Core 10 - £89.00
ID:Core 20 - £119.00
ID:Core 40 - £159.00
