              Comments about Blackstar ID: Core 40W Guitar Amp Head:

              This is a solid state 40 watt head with stero output to speakers, reverb, delay, and effects. I like the ease of use and the sound of this amp. I play it through a pair of Laney 1x12 speakers, and it sounds very good. Can not comment on the editing program because I have not used it.

              I also have the ID core 10 watt combo. That combo comes with small speakers which lacks bass. I like it the 40 watt head because you can connect it to the speaker of your choice, and get adequate bass from it.

              One downside of this amp is the fact it does not have a true equilzer. The ISF control does not change the sound significantly. The other thing I do not like is the fact the power supply transformer is outside the amp. The power supply cords are not heavy duty, and can get damaged easily.

              The amp has adequate power for practice at home, studio use, or small to medium gigs.

              The head did not come with a foot switch.
