Blackstar ID:Core 100 Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
- Wide range of customizable tones
- Onboard effects including a looper
- Plenty of power for live performance
Wide range of customizable tones
The ID:Core 100 contains six selectable voices. Each can be selected, dialed in with level, bass, middle, and treble controls, and saved to one of the amp’s preset locations. These presets are then accessible via buttons on the amps control panel or via the included footswitch. Blackstar’s ISF knob dials between more British or more American voices. The amp’s USB output accesses Blackstar’s free INSIDER software for deeper editing and enables direct recording. And you’ll be blown away by how wide of a stereo image this amplifier’s two speakers deliver.
Onboard effects including a looper
Once your tones are dialed in, you’ll enjoy access to the ID:Core’s onboard effects. Reverb, delay, and octaver, and modulation effects are all available and easily controllable via the amp’s TYPE control. They can also be saved in your presets. Another powerful feature in the ID:Core amplifiers is the built-in looper. Simply start a loop to record, then switch to a different one of your preset tones and lay down another track. You’ll enjoy unlimited overdubs with controls for undo and clear for editing your performances.
Plenty of power for live performance
Blackstar’s ID:Series of amplifiers are incredibly popular, and we sell a lot of them at Musiekwereld. But there is a demand for those same features in an amplifier that offers enough power for live performance. The ID:Core answers the call with 100 watts of power. This is plenty to compete with any drummer, and it delivers enough headroom to keep the amp from struggeling at these volumes. And two 10″ speakers are used for their balance of punch and clarity, while helping keep the amp at a featherweight 27.5 lbs.
