Overview

The ID:Core 20 V2 is a 2x10 W ultimate entry-level guitar amplifier. Incredible tone and flexibility is accessed by a simple and intuitive control set and delivered in SUPER WIDE STEREO to give an immersive playing experience that will have you hooked on playing guitar.

ID:Core V2 represents the culmination of more than nine years’ technical research and development. These amps have an intuitive control set like a traditional amp, but have the versatility of programmability. The unique controls allow you, the guitarist, to custom design your own sound. The unique and enhanced 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 Blackstar INSIDER software. Patches can be shared, uploaded and downloaded via the online community. The USB connector also allows you to record from your amp directly to your computer; new USB 2.0 functionality makes for easier recording and reamping, plus the ability to record just the preamp out for adding your own effects and cabinet emulation in the DAW/post-processing. An emulated output, MP3/line input and inbuilt panel-accessible tuner complete the package.

Adding to this, the inclusion of Presonus’ renowned Digital Audio Workstation software Studio One, gives you all the tools at your disposal for ultimate creative autonomy.

By using the unique Voice control and the patented ISF, ID:Core Series amplifiers allow unparalleled flexibility and ease of use, enabling you to design the sound in your head and deliver it at home, in the studio or in rehearsal.

      I've always been a tube amp guy but, honestly, this amp sounds amazing. It's has the warmth, responsiveness, and even the tones of a great tube amp -0 plus a plethora of quality effects. The delay alone is worth the price. Delays sound like they are coming from around the room. I've never experienced such a cool 3D delay effect. After 30 years of trial and error with modeling technology, it's here and it's amazing. .

        Sounds great for such a small, inexpensive amp. Can do about anything well for a practice/beginner amp. Perfect for somebody just starting out like myself or for use in a small apartment, also like myself. lol

        Nice little amp

        By Ed from Merritt Island

        from Merritt Island FL

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Blackstar ID:Core 20 V2 20W Digital Stereo Guitar Combo Amp:

        I had a bad start with this fellow, the first one that I received decided not to work. GC was kind enough to replace it, but there was trouble and expense involved and I had paid for a new toy that I could not play with. I was ornery.

        The replacement, did work, but the chorus/flanger effect and the envelope filter effect, were noticeable in their absence. However, once I installed the latest firmware, everything did work. In my opinion, that is not a positive selling note, especially if you don't have a computer.

        Fortunately, once those issues were cleared, at this price point there are nothing but pluses to report.

        First, the effects do put the twin speakers to good use producing an illusion of depth which is very, very cool.

        A second Blackstar-only touch is the ISF knob which replaces the standard Bass/Middle/Treble knobs with one knob that starts on the far left as American mode and becomes more Brit as you move to the left. Probably the only thing where you move to the right to be less American! I was absolutely ready not to like it. But, I like it, if only because they left the French out(just joking French people).

        Mentioning the ISF knob, requires that we consider the Insider software. If you really want to have the complete control of three Bass/Middle/Treble knobs, you can do it with the software, so they have simplified the buttons and knobs on the amp and moved the endless gee-haws into software. I'm good with that. While you are playing is not the time to search for that one special just right sound.

        The cleans are really quite good, but not Vox or Fender good. The gains are effective but can sound a bit harsh if pushed too hard.

        I like it! However, you should watch the reviews to see if there is a quality control problem, or I just had bad luck.
