      Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Beam 2x3 Bluetooth Guitar Combo Amp:

      I would only buy this if you're going to utilize all of the features of the amp e.g. bluetooth for music. As far as the hiss or background noise problem in another review, this can easily be fixed by changing the noise gate from low to high using the computer. Other than that I basically only use it for practice and play along with songs. You can get pretty much any tone you need out of it and if you like effects its got digital pedals you can edit and tune with the computer.

        Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Beam 2x3 Bluetooth Guitar Combo Amp:

        There are a few products like this amp on the market, but this is only one that does it all very well. It sounds great as a guitar amplifier and is a superb bluetooth music player as well. Volume levels are more than adequate for a large living room, the tone is well balanced with good highs and low end.
        Blackstar is not kidding when they advertise 'super-wide stereo'. The amp is about 12" across but with on-board delay and mod effects the unit presents itself as being five foot wide! Also, the perceived width of the stereo effect can be set by the user.
        The bluetooth connection is quick and stable. (my two biggest complaints with its competitor, the Line6 Amplifi, was unreliable bluetooth (a major component to the features of this amp line) and lack of stereo presentation despite having five speakers onboard).
        Dialling in tones is easy and intuitive, you can connect to a computer for detailed editing, but I have yet to find a need to do so. Footswitch is a welcome bonus as is the fact that it is designed to double as a bass amp as well as for guitar (I haven't tested that feature out yet)
        The BEAM should present very closely to the Blackstar IDCore 20, but in my experience, the BEAM is much better. Music streaming is the obvious plus on the BEAM, but it also has more tonal features and the smaller cabinet size is better suited to the living room environment; I also found the IDCore to be more easily overwhelmed by low end frequencies on clean settings - it didn't take much to set the cabinet humming...a fine amp for distortion settings though...
        Compared to the Yamaha THR10, the sound is cleaner and the amp is quieter; plus you get Bluetooth AND it's priced better. The Roland Cube Lite has great sounds and the price is reasonable, but it lacks the Bluetooth and it's noisy! Even a humbucker guitar buzzes annoyingly. So yes, I have tried them all, and the Blackstar BEAM is the hands down winner.

        Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Beam 2x3 Bluetooth Guitar Combo Amp:

        Would rate this as a great amp for practice and music play back EXCEPT for a constant background hiss that occurs as soon as the guitar cable is plugged in. This is the second one I've had with the same problem. (Guitar Center has been great on the exchange). In quiet situations like our home music room its distracting. Otherwise a really great product that would meet all my needs but I think its going to go back to Guitar Center for a refund.

          Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Beam 2x3 Bluetooth Guitar Combo Amp:

          Amazingly full sound compared with other digital amps I've used (line 6, fender, peavy, vox). The acoustic effects are not very good though and probably worthless. A better explanation of the controls and optimal use would help.
