Blackstar ID Series Gets Gold

Blackstar ID Series Reviews

The ID series delivers True Valve Power with Blackstar's special patent pending design. Being masters of all things valve has helped them deliver all their true analogue characteristics, response, dynamics, sag, break up and now even the same power. So 15 watts from an ID amp means that it is as loud as it's valve equivalent. Indeed 15 watts at that volume is easily enough to play small gigs, with selectable amp models you can decide whether you want all clean headroom or a bit of crunch.

Lets take a closer look.

Blackstar Guitarist Gold AwardIf all that isn't convincing enough Guitarist magazine's Blackstar ID Series review.
"The ID:60TVP's wealth of features, astounding tone, quality and price earns it our highest accolade - yes, it's another Gold Award for Blackstar."

So that's some of the best guitar amp simulations from Blackstar without any plugins and Loud As Valve. Of course so much great tone is in the hands of the player and while Blackstar can't play your guitar for you, they can do the next best thing. If you download the Insider software for your ID series amp you can get a selection of ready made tones from famous artists. Blackstar guru Jamie Humphries gets deep into some sound's with the ID:100TVP amplifier.

If the Insider software isn't enough for you to get your teeth into there's a ton of lessons from some amazing guitarists available at Blackstar's new site dedicated to getting the most out of your ID Series amp and guitar playing as a whole!

It all adds to making the Blackstar ID Series unlike any other range of amps, tapping into a whole world of technology, advice, experience and above all true valve tone that is loud and light for gigging and versatile enough for the studio.
