This tiny compact combo amp gives your a huge sound the stereo effect allowed for room filling delays and reverbs no matter the size of your practice space.

      Masses of tonal variety

      The ID Core range comes fitted with 6 different amp models from warm and bright cleans to slight overdrive up to 2 high gain options. You have control over the selected amp models with a gain, volume and ISF(EQ) Control, this keeps things simple enough that anyone can achieve a good tone at the twist of a couple of knobs without too much messing about. As well as this you have 3 different effect types with 4 variations on each type, 4 types of modulation, 4 types of delays, and 4 types of reverb. Each effect type has an amount option as well as a level control which can be used to balance it to achieve the sound you are looking for. All of these features are packed into the small compact combo unit, the amp also boasts Blackstars super wide stereo technology which gives you more spread of your sound than your traditional small combo out spreading your sound across the room.

      Inputs/Outputs and Connectivity

      On this amp as well as the guitar input you also have a MP3/Line input which allows you to plug in any device which offers MP3 playback. This makes practice fantastic as you can jam along to your favourite songs or backing tracks either through the maps speakers or all through the same set of headphones. The headphone output on the Core 40 also doubles up as an emulated output meaning you can push your sound through an additional speaker system or PA.
