Overview

The ID:260 is a 2 x 60-watt stereo, programmable amp. With 2 x 12" speakers, this combo has a broad immersive sound and really packs a punch live.

The ID: Series represents the culmination of more than seven years technical research and development by the same team that designed Series One, Artisan and HT Venue. 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.

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!

FEATURES

  • True Valve Power offers six distinctly different power valve responses - EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, KT88
  • ¢ EL84 - Bell like full bodied Class A with lots of compression
  • ¢ 6V6 - Crisp Class A with high compression and tight mids
  • ¢ EL34 - Classic British Class A/B crunch with full bodied soft break up
  • ¢ KT66 - Rich and warm vintage British hot biased Class A/B
  • ¢ 6L6 - Tight dynamic Class A/B with extended highs and lows
  • ¢ KT88 - Tight, bold and dynamic Class A/B with strong low end
  • EQ with patented ISF: The patented ISF control works with the Bass and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between, allowing you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings
  • Voices: The unique Voice control has six different channels - Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2, which when used together with Blackstar's patented ISF control, you can get the exact tone you're thinking of
  • GUI Software: GUI for 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 or to re-amp guitar tracks. The audio section allows you to play along to your MP3s, plus you can loop and time stretch sections for phrase training
  • Multi effects: The effects section delivers studio-quality modulation, delay and reverb effects (four each, based on classic and boutique effects) simultaneously that you can store with your sound
  • 128 user storable sounds: There are 12 patches which are accessible from the front of the amp
  • Manual mode: The sound you hear will reflect the current physical position of the knobs so you can find the sound you are looking for and then store it for future use
  • USB connectivity: Plug the amp in to a mac or PC with the USB connection and you'll be able to edit patches, record and re-amp audio and much more via the GUI
  • Speaker emulated output: This amp has a fully specified speaker emulated output which further enhances the studio credentials and allows any guitarist to get amazing valve tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones
  • Built-in tuner: Allows you to tune your guitar through the amp, with LEDs that indicate if the note that is being played is in tune, sharp or flat
  • MIDI input: This amp offers the ability to recall Patches via MIDI Program Change messages, and to dynamically modify Patch values via MIDI Control Change messages

Comments about Blackstar ID: 260 2 x 60W (120W) Stereo Programmable Guitar Combo Amp:

Just got one of the Mexican made Martins 000 custom X series acoustics from GC, (great guitar BTW) and it sounds like a much more expensive guitar unplugged, but plug it in to this amp and you will be amazed! Actually makes me play even better as it is so versatile!

      Got this to use my Gretsch G5622t electric with, but just got a new Martin Custom X series acoustic,(yes it's mostly composite and made in Mexico, but it sounds like a $6000 instrument thru this amp!You don't need to spend a lot of money for great sounds. Bought the amp based on a GC employees recommendation, who actually uses this amp himself.

        Comments about Blackstar ID: 260 2 x 60W (120W) Stereo Programmable Guitar Combo Amp:

        Great amp, like every tube amp and voice all in one unit. Well made, Excellent sounds. All you need to add is a wah pedal, (I added a Vox wah to it, didn't interact well with my Roland ME-50 multi effects, probably as this has all you need built right in.) Footswitch to control the various amp functions like access to all 128 storable patched that you can create and download should come with it as standard equipment or design the amp so you can do it from the amps front panel (you can access/store 12 from the front) TVP feature is great. Just like a tube amp without the tubes to burn out, and you get 6 sets of tube types!

        Switching from channel to channel is difficult because of the delay in between is some what of a learning curve but it's worth every penny. A+

          Comments about Blackstar ID: 260 2 x 60W (120W) Stereo Programmable Guitar Combo Amp:

          I was in between the Spider V and this amp. While the Spider V may have more features such as an app and looper, it fall way short on what the Blackstar brings in tone. It truly feels like an analogue amp with built in tonal features. Between the valve modeling and the ISF tone shaping, you can truly achieve many tones out there. From John Mayer cleans to iconic Appetite for Destruction crunch, any tone can be achieved. Add in some active pickups and chug some heavy metal. The only downside is that the footpedal is less than desireable. Very basic. That is a small downside to an amazing amp.
