ID: Series Amps
Blackstar's ID: Series represents a truly groundbreaking achievement, combining unique innovations, an intuitive, traditional control set and the versatility of programmability. In the five years since its launch, Blackstar has been helping lead the way in the innovation of guitar amplification. The ID: Series represents the culmination of more than seven years technical research and development. 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.

Blackstar's 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 valve.

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 supplied Blackstar GUI software. Patches can be shared, uploaded and downloaded via our online community. The USB connector also allows you to record your amp directly to your computer. An emulated output, MP3/line input and midi footswitching functionality complete the package.

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.

  • Great little amp!! Great value!

    As reviewed by JAY on 12/7/2014

    If you have been playing for a few years, this would make a great upgrade amp from your starter amp. I am a longtime player and still found it to be a great option for jamming around the house. Ok... this is a great amp for the price. I play a Mesa Mark V and also use an AVID Rack 11. No it is not going to compare to those. It does however make a really nice portable option for an on the go, tuck under my arm, all in one amp that sounds great. I play a Les Paul w/ EMG's through it and it sounds great for everything from fender type shimmering cleans to Vox-ish modern edge, to balls out Mesa type way over drive. Oh, and I traded a Marshall tube head for this thing and the programmable pedal and yes it does that sound pretty well too. No, as I stated before, it won't sound just like a $2,500 tube amp... of course not. But it is a great portable practice or small gig option where it doesn't make sense to carry in your half or full stack. The effects are very good... not super flexible unless you use the software to edit. The programmable footswitch is a must if you are going to play out. Even with that if you are used to a pro rig you might be used to a little more flexibility but don't let this stop you. this amp is wwwaayyyy better sounding and feature rich than any other amp anywhere near this price range in my opinion. The Andertons have a review on youtube. Check that out. I have been playing a lot of inexpensive amps to try to find something in a one box does it all, simple, and doesn't cost what my Mark V did solution and this one was very pleasing to my ears. I have played from ameture to pro level and back for 40+ yrs. It's a great little amp at a very good price. Surprisingly loud.
