Overview

The ID:15 boasts many of the same unique features and functionality as the larger ID models but in a compact combo format making it perfect for home recording and practising.

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.

      For the bedroom and not much else.
      I have had three of these BlackStar amps they all seem to have the same issue. The sound seems to fade in and out ...never at a constant level...High and Low...low and high.
      My other amps don't have that issue.
      So I returned the item.

      Best Emulation Amp for the Money, hands down....

      Comments about Blackstar ID:15 1x10 15W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

      This is an awesome 1st or 2nd amp... I had a Line6 Spider Jam amp that I liked a lot because of the drum tracks and that it could emulate lots of amps... Problem with that amp was that all the emulated sounds were variations of gain and you could never get a tube or tube-ish sound out of it. I ended up selling that. Have a Vox Tonelab pedal (Great product), and that is a step in the right direction but I always seem to end up fiddling with it and wasting a lot of time getting a sound I like. I ended up putting that tonelab pedal in front of a cheap orange crush amp and that's better but not optimum. With this BlackStar ID amp, it takes things to the next level. Within minutes of taking it out of the box, I had it plugged in, turned on, and making great tone. You get two versions each of clean, crunch, and over drive but then you get a second stage you can turn on for tube-ish emulations of various tubes and that is really neat to play with. Then there are four different effects knobs to toggle on and off which offer more than the Line6 I use to have, so instead of two different effects limititation, here you have up to three at a time with four variations on each. Like for someone just starting out, instead of buying an amp and a bunch of pedals, you could buy this amp and it'd keep you busy and exploring for a year or two and you wouldn't regret it. I think this is now the best practice amp on the market and you can get it for the cost of like 2 boutique pedals... The TONE is the important part, and the TONE is Great on this amp and you can modify it in so many ways to get a sound that you want. It's hard to read reviews and make a decision, just do what I did, go on Youtube and search for folks reviewing this amp and listen to the tones. In watching the vids, I knew what I was getting, and out of the box it delivered... Thumbs Up Product!!!

      Absolutely outstanding amp

      By Heath

      Comments about Blackstar ID:15 1x10 15W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

      I spent months looking at various practice amps, from Vox, Fender, Orange, Marshall and the Blackstar ID Core amps. I was unable to find a Blackstar ID15TVP to try in the store but after watching every video review of the ID Series I was very intrigued. Of the amps that I was able to try, the Fender Champion and the Blackstar ID Core were the ones that stuck out to me. I want a well rounded amp, one that can offer a variety of tones to cover what I play (Classic Rock, Grunge, Blues). Between the Blackstar and the Fender I preferred the tones from the Blackstar. So I decided to purchase the Blackstar ID15TVP without even trying it making the assumption that it would most likely sound even better than the IDCore 20 I tried in the store. Well, it is almost impossible to put into words how blown away I am with the ID15TVP. The ISF and TVP functions provide an amazing amount of dynamics to the tones, it's really incredible. And I didn't think that I would want to spend much time with their Insider software but it's really easy and intuitive to use. From American or British cleans to crunch and OD, it's impossible not to be able to find a tone that suits your needs with this amp. Mix and match the ISF dynamics with different tube models to create a specific, personal tone. It also has a handful of useful effects like different reverb effects, delay and modulation to add to the sound as well. And, the sound is huge, it could move furniture. But the nice thing is that you don't have to have the volume set at 8 or 10 to great tones, it is still a fantastic practice amp at lower/bedroom volumes. All in all, just a fantastic amp. I am absolutely thrilled with it and I would not hesitate to advise others to purchase it if they want a great amp with almost limitless options to model other amps or create your own personal tone.

      Outstanding

      Comments about Blackstar ID:15 1x10 15W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

      I?ve owned this amp for a month now and am very very happy with it. Enjoy playing and home recording but live in a small apartment with paper thin walls. Something with headphone and line out is a must. While I don?t play out very often, I still strongly prefer a functional amplifier over a separate amp modeling foot pedal or software plug-in. Have owned several other solid state modeling amps and checked out several others closely. This amp is a noticeable step in the right direction to my ears. I am also a big fan of how the controls are laid out. The build quality feels solid too. I haven?t put the ?loud as valve? claim to the test yet. It certainly exceeds my current needs and I suspect this thing is plenty loud for small relatively low/medium volume live performance. However, you may want to consider the next model up as a minimum if playing more aggressive music with a loud drummer.

      Great practice amp!

      Comments about Blackstar ID:15 1x10 15W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

      I have a Blackstar ID 100 and I love it! So I decided to get the 15W version that I can practice in the livingroom using headphones. I'm very happy with it. I'm just not giving it five starts because as a practice amp, a volume control for the headphones would be a great feature.
