Blackstar's top selling modeling amplifier returns better than ever with the Blackstar ID Core 20 Version 2. An overhaul of features, voices and effects puts this firmly amongst the best practice and home recording amplifiers on the market to date.

An Impressive Step Forward In Affordable, Quality Amplification

The Blackstar ID Core 20 V2 is a fantastic amplifier for beginners, rehearsals or just to have as a spare amp around the house. It features the patented Blackstar ISF control, (allowing the user to determine whether the amp carries a more American or British characteristic), 6 Built in amplifier models and 13 impressively realized effect types. Added to this is the ability to record directly to your PC via an emulated line out and the option to jam over your favorite backing tracks thanks to an MP3 line in.

Get 'The Sound In Your Head' with enhanced voicing

The Blackstar ID Core 20 is programmable to your exact requirements - 6 channels offer instant switching between Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1 and OD 2. Built into the amp is Blackstar ID Core 20 V2's patented ISF Control, which lets you modify your tone towards either a classic British Plexi or American Tweed amp, and everything in between. It's like having 6 amps in one, and doesn't require a master's degree in guitar amplification to dial in!

Super Wide Stereo FX

12 Stereo effects put full creative control of your tone back in your hands. The effects section delivers studio quality Super Wide Stereo modulation, delay and reverb effects simultaneously that you can store with your custom preset sounds. New for the Blackstar ID Core 20 V2 include a new envelope filter modulation effect for funky cleans, or touch-sensitive lead lines. Blackstar’s unique Super Wide Stereo technology gives you an immersive sound experience that will have you playing along to your MP3 backing tracks for hours.

Included Software Bundle

Blackstar ID Core 20 V2 amps now include PreSonus’ renowned Digital Audio Workstation software, Studio One. It provides all the tools at your disposal for ultimate creative control. Record loops, entire songs or demos and edit them to your heart's content with EQ, additional effects and sequence it all from one program. 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 serves as an inspirational tool to create content and network with players around the world.

Small in size but HUGE in tone, the Blackstar ID:Core 20 V2 is great bang for the buck. Pop into your local PMT Store today for a full demonstration and see what they are capable of!
