OVERVIEW

A 30W programmable combo with flexibility to spare.

The ID:30 is a 30W amp which boasts many of the same unique features and functionality as the larger ID models but in a compact combo format making it perfect for home recording and practising.

ID: Series Amps
Blackstar's ID: Series represents a truly groundbreaking achievement, combining unique innovations, an intuitive, traditional control set and the versatility of programmability. In the five years since its launch, Blackstar has been helping lead the way in the innovation of guitar amplification. The ID: Series represents the culmination of more than seven years technical research and development. 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.

Blackstar's True Valve Power offers six distinctly different power valve responses - EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, KT88. When engaged, it delivers the response, dynamics, sag and break-up characteristics of a valve amp and uniquely delivers the same acoustic power output as an equivalent valve power amp. This means that for the first time ever, in an affordable series of amplifiers, these products deliver live without compromise - True Valve Power means loud as valve.

The 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 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. An emulated output, MP3/line input and midi footswitching functionality complete the package.

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

  • 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.

Call or click to get exactly the sound you were looking for.

      Comments about Blackstar ID:30 1x12 30W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

      Okay, I am as of this writng 51, an old rocker, singer/songwriter and LOVE tube amps. I own Marshalls, Traynor, Peavey, Line 6. I have owned Vox, Mesa Boogie and a few others. Okay for this amp not being a tube amp, I am blown away by how amazing it sounds. The 30 watt is powerful and stays right with my band, fantastic becuase it is so light that my old back does not need to haul heavy stuff. The sound is so totally amazing that you really can cover any style of music and it does not sound like a model amp at all. Not to mention that you can select the tube types and it really does come so very close to the real deal that I now leave behind the heavier amps. I say this becuase I have many tube amps and A and B them. I am very impressed with this amp and though I will not get rid of my tube amps, this has been finding it's way to my gigs more than the tube brothers. BEST model amp out there, it really smokes them all.

        Comments about Blackstar ID:30 1x12 30W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

        I have had a Fender Mustang 3 amp for 2 years but felt the sounds except for the Fender cleans were lacking depth. I read the reviews about this amp and thought I would give it a try. The TVP settings are awesome along with most effects. The 30 watt version I have is LOUD. I have a Strat, Tele and Les Paul and they all seem to work with this amp quite well. The USB interface also works well with Blackstar's online patches. The chorus is probably the weakest part of its' effects but to me that isn't a deal breaker. Great job Blackstar!

        Comments about Blackstar ID:30 1x12 30W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

        A very versatile amp. The latest firmware update has made this amp sound better. This amp is as loud as a 30 watt tube amp, but much lighter in weight! A midrange knob would have been appreciated, but it can be accessed through the software. This amp blows away my old Fender Mustang 3 for quality of sound, especially at lower volume levels. The ISF feature alone, separates Blackstar from the competition!

        Comments about Blackstar ID:30 1x12 30W Programmable Guitar Combo Amp with Effects:

        This is the first amp that has really blown me away and I have 12 amps including 2 blackstar tube amps (a 100w Venue series head and a combo 60 stage 2x12) and an EVH 5150 III. It brings out the individual sounds of my 26 guitars and their hot rodded pickups better than any other amp I have. The problem is I like it seaux much, I had to order another more powerful version - so just finished ordering a new Blackstar ID:260TVP 2x12" 2x60-Watt Programmable Stereo Combo! This Blackstar series blows away the Line 6 Spyders and and thier new amplifi 150 as well as the PV Vypyrs big time!
