Blackstar

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.

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!
